‘For us as a team, I think if we’d had the fans in the stadium, our position, our situation, would have been much better. We suffered a lot this season with missing the fans.
‘So I am happy in the last game of the season we played with our fans. It was great to see them back in the stadium.’

He said: ‘The highlight of the season was Ali’s goal! I can’t say anymore,’ he said, in reference to Alisson Becker’s 95th-minute winning header at West Bromwich Albion recently.
‘It was unbelievable. As I said, it’s about the team and the reaction to the goal… I didn’t even think about it, I was jumping. That was the moment when I felt like we were going to play in the Champions League next season.
‘The last ball in the game, it was an unbelievable moment and I was so happy for him.
‘It was a really great header, not expected. Unbelievable. He did a great job and got us the three points.’
