He told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo: "We have given everything on the pitch and I am responsible for that.

"But with time I will be calm and I will talk to the club, and in the next few days we will see.

"We will see what will happens shortly. Not only with me, with everything the club is going to do for the next season."
