Muñoz showed no signs of any Manager of the Month curse, having been named the winner of the March award this morning. The Spaniard in particular used his substitutes well to manage the game against a Reading team which won the reverse fixture in October.
“We knew the level of our opponent. We had a very good team in front of us with very good players and very good tactics,” said Muñoz.
“We started the game in high intensity at a high level. Sometimes it happens [when you don’t control the game], but the most important thing is in the second half we were safer, and they didn’t have chances to score.
“Sometimes we speak about the team being mature and they were mature today. We’re consistent in our games and you know more or less what is our level. Everyone has given a big level in the last 20 or 21 games.
“The team is not waiting, the team is always ready to go for the game. It’s amazing when everyone in the team has the same ambition and it’s the moment to continue working very hard. This is three points more and we can enjoy this for 30 minutes, but after 30 minutes we need to think about the next game.”
