“Our outdoor camp was a success, we did a great job with the players and I’m happy with the response they’ve shown. Now they know my style of functioning. We played four friendly matches during our pre-season camp and we won three of them, which was good.

“We’ve players who were with us last season and they know very well what I seek from them. There’re new players in the team and they also know about our strategy. There’ll some changes according to the requirements of matches and that’s normal. We can deal with it,” said Marquez.
