“I am the most flexible manager you can imagine. When the players are coming with good arguments, I change my opinion. Yes. They need to have very good arguments. It is not so easy to convince me - that’s true. But when you convince me I change my opinion. Three in the back, no. Most of the players here think the manager is deciding that. I ask also the players which system they want to play. And then I ask individual players: ‘What’s your favourite position?’ First they don’t want to answer but now they are more open, and they answer. 4-4-2? No. The fans are shouting it. I have played it but that was to do with accidental circumstances. The system we play now is the system that I prefer, that I have played everywhere. Against Spurs is my preferred system. When it is needed, then I play with five at the back. Yesterday was 4-3-3 when we had the ball. For example, Juan more inside andYoung outside. When we defend it was more 4-1-4-1 yesterday. Next game is different.”
