The Special One played two Premier League games, a Carabao Cup tie and a Europa League match within the space of seven days at the start of the season.
“The only thing we can say is that what we did in the beginning of the season is impossible to repeat and we refuse to repeat. We would never accept to play seven matches in three weeks like we did before.”
