Marcelino: "I do not understand the change from the first to the second half"

Marcelino's post press conference

Marcelino García Total was very upset in the press room of the Stade de Suisse, after the Valencia CF draw in Berne against BSC Young Boys in the third match of the Champions League group stage, and stated that "we had everything in favor to win here today, because in the first half we showed a great level, we had the option to close the game almost at the end with a chance of Ferran and everything indicated that it was the way to win in Bern. But the second half came and everything changed, we lost the ball easily, the opponent was better than us, then the penalty came because of a lack of concentration and they were superior in everything."

For Marcelino "the organization failed, the defensive work, the collective and also the attack. Seeing the second half we have to recognize that the rival has surpassed us and, and if we keep going this way, we are not going to win games. I do not understand the change so drastic from the first to the second half, in which we were diluting, we started to doubt and the need to win made us rush more, we disappeared. We lost the organization. Of course we are worried. "

For the coach of Valencia CF "it is clear that when a team like ours does not have the results it is because their best players do not reach their level, whether it is the responsibility of all of us who form the squad or the sum of other concepts. Everything is conditioned by the results, there are twelve games, we have nine draws, this is something unusual. And that affects the players, just like me. Today, however, we have to be happy with the draw because the rival did deserved to win."
