"We are a European club, two years in a row in the Champions League play-off stage is not normal," they said, adding: "Something powerful has been created here that can even be increased, even after three championships."

"They didn't understand why they gave him a two-year contract at the age of 34, now everyone understands," complimented the Dutchman, "three assists worth a Champions League play-off. One of the greatest to have set foot here. Everyone is better next to him." Goalkeeper Itamar Nitzan, defender Abdoulaye Seck and striker Frantzdi Piero also received compliments.
