The Argentine praised Dele Alli for his maturity in the situation and the positivity he was able to bring out from the incident.
“I think it was an amazing reaction. In another country the player will be down on the pitch and create a big problem.
“He was so honest, professional and behaved really well. Arsenal must be grateful with him. Sometimes a player would have gone down and created a massive problem. Sometimes people have criticised him but it is good to praise him now.
“He is more mature now but still good – he is so young. He is still learning. I know Arsenal is going to take responsibility and fix the problem.”
