  09/11/2013: Petkovic: "Hernanes has nothing to prove"

"We have to pull everything we have out against Parma. We are playing a lot of games but the boys are responding well. I have to try to stabalise the team. Youngsters? They are growing, Keita is fit and should continue to rack up the minutes in his legs. Parma? We want a proactive team, attentive and focused. Scoring will be important, in times of trouble you require courage and attack is the best form of defence."

"Konko and Radu? Today and tomorrow I will evaluate them, they are players who are willing to give everything. Hernanes? He has mainly a problem with tranquility , he has nothing to prove to anyone. He is a major player when he is calm and when our team serves him as last year. I have seen positive things but it does not depend only on him, the team must give him the right support. We have proven to be a united group, tomorrow all will fight for each other."

"What do I think of Parma? They are a strong team with fast and clever attackers, but we can cause them trouble and have to do everything possible to win. Prior to Genoa there was too much talk that the team weren't playing, we have played well and created chances, maybe not for 90 minutes but we have dominated shots and possession compared to our opponents. What counts though are the results. We lack 4-5 points right now and it is right we are criticised. Is this match decisive for my future? No."
