“I am not sure about the [penalty] ruling, but I am biased towards goalkeepers. We get the chance and their goalkeeper makes the save, but then there is the penalty, so you are getting two chances, two bites of the cherry almost.

“I feel for their keeper, he has made a great save, but that is secondary; winning is the most important thing for us.”

The Dane added that he believes his team can win more trophies this season, saying;
