“But in the second half, we had some situations, some possibilities to score and draw level, and maybe the match could have changed.
“But this is our job, it’s my job. I know football.
“Maybe after three months of hard work to achieve where we are in the table, it’s possible to have a bad day, and today for us was not a good day.”
