At his first press conference on Friday, Cioffi said he wants to build a relationship with the fans and make them an addition to the squad.

He said: "For me it is a pleasure to meet the fans and I like when someone puts an arm round someone and says you are the best in the world orr when they say you are not good enough. You have to accept the reality.

"But I would like to create a relationship with them - it is an engine we can add to the squad. I will love that."
