"I think that's going to be the main thing, from now to the end of the season. I think the team that is more brave as a team, which means most individuals, is going to be the one that is going to stay up.
"I am pretty sure because the difference between the teams is very little. So the idea here is to maintain that level of concentration all the time and be the team who is the bravest from the bottom ten."
