Rangnick replied at a press conference: "I'm not worried that he has not been able to recover." So far he's always been a person who takes care of himself and his body and he understands what to do. I'm not worried about that." If he can score another three we will see. It's not so simple to score 3 against this team at all.
" His total performance was great, if not even great and this is what we want to get from him again tomorrow (Tuesday) night.
" It's not practically Cristiano, it's about the whole team. We saw in the first half in Madrid what we should not do and how we should not play and this was certainly a huge topic for us the other day and today when we discussed tomorrow's game.
" We have to know what it takes and what it tactically takes and the rest has to do with energy." We had a team against Spurs that simply wished to win that game and it ended up being apparent The fans played a vital role due to the fact that they understood just how much we wished to win that game and tomorrow will be comparable."
