On the tackle on Eduardo...
"The injury is the result of a very bad tackle. The first diagnosis we have of the injury is very, very bad. I would not like to go into medical details because I am not qualified enough but the first news is very bad. He is in hospital."

On it possibly ending his career...
"I don't know. I would not go as far as that but it does not look good."

On other issues in the game...
"It was never a free-kick on the first goal and it was not a penalty. Five minutes before that it was a 100 per cent penalty on Adebayor. But we have to take it, we cannot change it and we have to look at ourselves as well. We have to fight against all that. We should have killed the game off earlier and scored the third. That is why with any little mistake you are caught."

On Eduardo's injury affecting the team in the first half...
"Yes 100 per cent. You could see that straight away it had a big effect."

On his half-time team-talk...
"We wanted to play football and the game what we wanted to play. We did that quite well."
