"The fans have stuck with us throughout the season and they deserve an enormous amount of credit for the support they have shown," he stated. "Hopefully they can keep doing that.
"We have not done anywhere near as well as we would have liked this season but we can only stick together, keep doing the right things and it will change. When you suffer a defeat like the one against Manchester City, the first thing to do is leave everything in the changing room. There is no point in dwelling on defeats like that because you could be dreaming about it for months to come. The best thing to do was to let it go. Obviously, we were all bitterly disappointed but we had to move on quickly and pick ourselves up."
