FULL-TIME FEELING

“It felt higher than the 35-forty mins earlier than that! Obviously, we have to have killed the sport off once more, a good deal in advance after the purple card.

We had five, six fantastic possibilities to rating, however, once more, we didn’t and so long as it’s 1-zero and with the enjoy of the closing 3 games – it’s everyday that there may be then a touch little bit of lack of confidence withinside the crew.

We had been now no longer pretty deadly sufficient in the ones moments to kill the sport off and it’s far continually risky towards 10 men.

You can concede a intention. With Bruno’s intention, it become clean with most effective one minute to move that the sport become over however it took very lengthy earlier than we placed the sport to bed.”

TACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS

“Well, yes, it apparent withinside the first 1/2 of that we had most effective or 3, perhaps 4 turnovers and we had been suffering to get preserve of the ball and to take the ball farfar from them and, for us, it become – there had been alternatives.

Either extrade formation to an unusual, in our view, 3-5-2, as our crew hasn’t performed in that formation that often, or replicate them withinside the 4-4-2 with a diamond.

That once more could have supposed that one or gamers could have performed in now no longer their nice feasible positions. So we determined to paste to the 4-2-3-1 and simply take greater risks, assault their centre-backs with our wingers at the ball facet and it paid off due to the intention we scored.

The first intention, it become a exquisite ball win via way of means of Scott McTominay and the purple card become an ideal interception via way of means of Anthony Elanga and, from then on, it become a distinct sport.

We had been on top of things of the sport and, as I said, the most effective factor that I can fault the crew for is that we didn’t rating 3 or 4 desires.”

RONALDO PRAISE

“Yes, it become an splendid intention. Not most effective an critical one however an splendid intention. Overall, it become additionally an amazing overall performance via way of means of Cristiano. Energetically, he become online, he become continually looking to assist the alternative crew-mates.

I think, withinside the closing weeks, that might be the nice overall performance via way of means of him and very, very critical for us.”
