Danilo insisted that Manchester City have to overcome their first major crisis of the season and fully focus on the upcoming Champions League game against Liverpool as they still can advance to the semifinals.

The Brazilian full-back admitted that this week has been a huge disappointment for the whole team as they were beaten by Liverpool 3-0 and then lost the derby despite leading 2-0 after the first half – but now, they have to forget all this.

The former Real Madrid player spoke about his side’s morale as he said, according to Belfast Telegraph:

“Well, without doubt, the atmosphere, the feeling, is of sadness, of disappointment.”

“We started the game really well, but we must return to the pitch as soon as possible because on Tuesday we have another big challenge to overcome a result.”

“Without any doubt (the City fans were great). We need to thank them all.”

“Not just for today but all the season, but especially the atmosphere they created today was amazing.”“They helped us until the last minute and I am sure they could help us a lot against Liverpool if they are able to create that atmosphere again and try to help us to overcome the result.”
