It was clear at full-time against Nottingham Forest how much the players had put into that victory, and those before it. This is the commitment Muñoz demands from his players and now, having had a rare full week to recover, he says they’re fired up to go again.
“They play a lot of games in a short time and they give their maximum, they give all for the team,” said the Spaniard, who has led the team for 15 league games and one in the FA Cup over the past 11 weeks.
“They play with passion and ambition and give everything to win all the games. It’s brilliant for us, it’s very good when you finish a game and see your players have given everything on the pitch. It’s amazing not only for us but also for the fans to see.
“Nobody gives points to you for free, they work very hard and fight in all the situations on the pitch. It’s normal they feel tired when they play a lot of games in a short time.
“This week for us has been a very good week because we have more time for them to work and more time for recovery. They are fit, they are ready. We have full power and ambition and know we need to keep going and continue with this hunger to keep giving more.”
