It is not a game to forget, it is a game to analyze. Despite difficult conditions, we lose our captain after a few minutes and we play with 10 players after 20 minutes, but that's no excuse. The match was already over, even at halftime being down 3-0, and playing with 10 men. At that point we are starting to think about the next match, but also giving minutes to some players to see if they're ready and if you can count on them for the next matches.”


“It was a difficult moment losing Sam (Piette), and then we went down to 10 men. But we just gave them the goals. It is always hard to play a man down, but we could have done better. We learned the hard way. We gave them the goals. Twice we turned the ball over and they scored. We’ll learn from this; the mistakes we made on the pitch, losing balls we shouldn’t have lost. We have to be humble, go back to the training ground and work hard. We have to make sure we get better on the road because it’s the only way we will improve as a team.”


“Seeing Sam go down was a blow because you know you’ve lost a good player. After that we got a red card, and it got even worse.”
