"It’s Basaksheir all over again. We were here last season and rueing mistakes.
"That’s a big mistake at the end of the game from Jesse who done really well at the weekend. Just goes to show wherever you go in Europe it's tough.
"Ole has now built a squad that is capable of winning the big prizes and that’s what he has been brought to do.
