— We controlled the whole match, we created chances, but struggled to convert them. I’m pleased with the team and thanked them after the game. Again, we have no complaints about the game. This is football, and you don’t always get the results you deserve. If we keep working the same way, paying like today, then there’s no doubt the results will come. We’ll return for the Cup.
— Was that your initial plan, playing on the front foot?
We always play on the front foot, because we are a good side and everyone should know that. Any team can lose, but if we play the right way I am not ashamed to lose.
— Do you have any questions about the sending off?
I will not comment on the refereeing, I’ve already said that. Since he made such the decision, he must have had his reasons. We have qualified observers who should decide whether there was something wrong or not. We have to be above that and our job is to play football. Refereeing errors exist and it is a part of football. People make mistakes even with VAR, we just need to convert our chances. That was a disappointing defeat.
