“I'm happy with my squad. I know I'm missing a player with these characteristics [a right winger], but I've never thought about complaining.
“I'd have liked my squad to have been completed this week, but sometimes my desires don't coincide with the market conditions.
“I have a dedicated, caring and committed squad, supported by a large group of fans.
“[On new boy Dejan Drazic], he needs more time to meet the demands of Spanish football.
“[On reported Barca target Nolito], at the moment it's business as usual. Nolito has reached a level of personal maturity, which is being seen in his professional life.
“I wish it was August 31 so everything would have ended by now!”
