We had generated probably more than ever this season, put the ball in the box more than ever, had the numbers there.”

I take a lot of positives for the way we played, when we come here in this moment and play with the personality, the courage, the passion, the energy and the belief the boys showed. At the end it’s a football match and you have to win it, and we lost again today.”
