“The most disappointing is probably in relation to the other half on the other side of the pitch. From [one] side of the pitch, we were very slow, we defended very well, we were extremely disciplined with a lot of good focus and a lot of the action.

“[However], the other side of the pitch was just out of possession which was good but also in possession to create more chances, to use the ball better and make better decisions.” He exclaimed.
