It was a shame. Of course, we cannot find the solution to score. We can take this goal but it is not a fair result.“A draw was the minimum and to lose this game for my team and players is harsh. Harsh because they had the right mentality despite tiredness in this busy period. They tried to give their best, to push until the end with a lot of chances.“It’s a shame. I’m sorry for my players and fans because it is not a fair result. We were unlucky, we conceded a fantastic goal and they scored with their chance at the end without the possibility to react. It’s difficult to accept, but that’s football.” last_img read more

From being in the Championship last year, now to being in the Premier League it is going to take a bit of time.”I was speaking to John Terry the other day and he said it always took him five or six games to get to the standard he knew he could be at and I think that is the same as me at the moment.”I know how good I actually am, how good I can be and I want to start adding goals and assists to my game, I am sure I can force my way into the England team.” last_img read more

I am convinced we will go through to the next round and we must always believe in what we’re doing. We should’ve finished the game earlier.“It’s also fair to say the referee should not have awarded that penalty. If we’d gone 2-0 up, we would not have had these issues. We’ve got to keep our heads up, as on Sunday there is an important game against Parma.“These two defeats with Cluj and SPAL are very disappointing, because we need to be more effective in attack and kill games off when we’re in control.“We have to analyse why we keep running out of steam in the second half. This was basically a photocopy of the match against SPAL, despite the fact we’ve worked on those errors over the last three days.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
