On Wednesday, the Italian coach Paulo “Parma Man” Sousalas side were beaten 2-1 by Legia Warsaw in the Europa League final, but the results do not mean the club will be relegated.
“We are still in the Champions League and the first team in it, but we have to play well in the next matches.
If we win against Milan tomorrow and then Roma and Sevilla, then it’s possible,” Sousas stated on Twitter.”
In the last six matches we are in the top four, but in the last three games we are not playing in the league.
So I will be in the meeting room and will be getting my work in.”
Sousalasi also admitted that he did not have a plan for the second leg at the Stadio San Paolo, as he did for the Europa final.
“It will be difficult to get on the pitch tomorrow, because the last two matches have been played at home,” he stated.
“There is still some work to be done.
We have to make sure we can get in shape.
It is a difficult game for us.
The last two weeks we have been struggling with injuries and suspensions.
But we have got a good squad.”
