After the game, the Spaniards new coach marchin commented on the game: its hard to make a positive assessment when you lose. We know Athletic Bilbao is always very strong in the first few minutes of the game, but before we can get rid of the danger in the forbidden area, they have scored. For them, its easier, for us, its more complex, and their approach is more lethal than ours. In some stages of the game we were able to control the situation, but it was not accurate enough, and even one goal was cancelled. Its hard, were hungry, but we dont have a killer shot to turn things around.
I cant deny the desire and pressure of the team. We are close to the other sides forbidden area, but we are not that efficient. Its a long way to go and we have to know where we are and its not going to take a few rounds to get out of this situation. We are going to be more decisive on the pitch and we have to keep working because its a long way.
