“We had a lot of chances and ran the play, but what defines the game are goals. We didn’t finish off our chances, I didn’t finish off my chances, and we have to accept that for what it is. I accept my large part of the blame; a striker is there to put the ball in the net, and it wasn’t to be today. I hope that my finishing will be better another day and that I can give more to the team. The fans can say what they want –they pay to watch and they have the right. We have to accept our mistakes. I will work hard so that I get a goal in the next match. We have to pick ourselves back up as soon as possible. The team played well today, but we missed out on the points. We have to continue working and change this dynamic.”
