''Until 20 days ago they made good things, it isn't possible they've lost themselves. It's our duty to try and recover the places we have lost.
''I'm not worried, but it's clear that in these days we must recharge ourselves and then restart running in a good way.
''I say it's fundamental to find the best concentration. As for the athletic condition, there aren't problems.''
