[I am getting] clarity and support from everybody at the club to try and improve the team if we can. ‘But most importantly as well, to get the right balance in the squad, for now and the way we want to evolve the squad in the future. We are all very much aligned but I’m afraid that I cannot give you any updates or news. ‘I think it is a crucial moment because in the end it defines the people, the players, the balance and the quality that you’re going to have for the rest of the season.‘We need to make some decisions in the next three days, I think everything has been delayed so much, not just us but probably every team because of the context that we’re in at the moment. ‘We will try to make the best possible decisions and at the end, whatever we have, we go for it fully convinced and prepared to have a good season.’MORE: Chelsea could look at Arsenal target Thomas Partey as potential Declan Rice alternativeMORE: Michael Owen makes predictions for Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United vs TottenhamFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.center_img Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more
