“It’s taken him two or three years to build a team that we think has the pieces of the puzzle, it’s just getting them into the right organization.
“There was a lot of excitement at the start of the season after four or five games; they beat Newcastle (4-1) and beat Leeds (5-1) and the last two games [Villa and Everton] have been disappointing.
“But I think he deserves a chance. He has built a team where, at least this season, he must have a year to show that he can do that and win trophies.’
