“We have had a lot of chances without finding the good clinical edge.

“I think we made a bad start again. Perhaps this time we expected too much from this team. We had the first good ball to make a good counter attack but often we played too laterally or behind.

“It was a shame because we often we made the difference in good situations to shoot or cross, and we didn’t take our responsibility.”
