“We now have some players who know their situation.”

“For example, Elneny and Mustafi know their position in the squad”

“I really want the players to be happy here, I want them to be protagonists.

“Last year with Mustafi and Mo, when they didn’t play they weren’t happy.”

“I spoke with them a lot of times last year and in pre-season, and I think it is positive for them to leave.”

“They can sign for another team where they can be protagonists, be happy and continue their careers.”

“They are very big players.”

“But for one circumstance or another, they are going to have less chances to show their capacity or to be happy with us and the minutes they play in matches.”

“But they know the situation and really, really I am wishing the best for them.”

“I think now the best for them is to be protagonists in another team, to sign and get another challenge with another team.”

“We respect them, and they are training with us, but they know their situation.”
