The goalkeeper assessed the first leg loss against Sporting
Valencia CF goalkeeper Jaume Domenech gave his thoughts on the 2-1 Copa del Rey defeat against Sporting Gijon on Tuesday night.
"We're really hurt by, and unhappy with, the result. We didn't expect or want the game to end like this. The tie is still open but we're Valencia CF and we have to win these games.
"I see a lot of commitment from the squad. The first half started well, but after Sporting's opening goal we lost confidence. We dropped back a bit. We lacked effectiveness in front of goal in the second half.
"The players are very committed and working hard, giving their all. We started the game well, but after their goal we lost confidence because of how our recent results have been. In the second half we lacked effectiveness in front of goal; they had one chance and they scored."
