Italian manager, Carlo Ancelotti has stressed that there is no need to panic as the German Champions are win less in their last 3 matches. A defeat against Atletico Madrid and two league draws are suggesting a crisis which the manager disagrees stating “It’s too soon for that.”
“I have to stay true to myself. Of course, sometimes I have to be more strict than in other situations, but I am not going to punish the players,” Ancelotti told reporters ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League encounter with PSV.
“They have to understand what went well and what didn’t go well.”
“We are not in crisis. It is too soon to say that. There are always difficult moments throughout a season. It can happen in October or in January. It’s the same everywhere. But I am confident. Things were going very well until three games ago.”
“We have learned that we will not win anything without the right attitude and intensity. The players are very professional and intelligent. They know their attitude was not good enough.”
“I believe in my players, even if they anger me occasionally. In the end, the players are the ones who will resolve the situation.”
“We always want do well, but what matters most is that we are top of the table in April. We have to be patient and remain confident.”
