“Endo is the same. with the two days he had I’m not surprised! He’s doing well! But he went down and didn’t know what to do ′′ I talked to him this morning about what to do, about 11 players, what his position will look like but the 4-4-1 plan is not in the conversation. Ours, that’s it. ” I don’t think he’s gotten much sleep over the last two nights. He’s gone on the pitch and given everything he has.
