"It was a great debut for Paulo, fantastic and he deserves full credit," said Mauricio. "It’s not easy to play in that circumstance and, for me, Toni Jimenez deserves big credit as well, our goalkeeping coach.
"To keep the third goalkeeper motivated when every week he has to go to the stand and then show that performance and that quality, not just Paulo, Toni deserves big, big credit.
