Julen Lopetegui against Athletic Club
First team

LOPETEGUI: 'WE DESERVED THE THREE POINTS - WE HAD SO MANY CHANCES'

'We're disappointed, but the team are doing an extraordinary job this season.'

Sevilla FC coach Julen Lopetegui spoke of his disappointment following Monday's loss against Athletic Club: 'We're disappointed with the loss as we deserved the three points with the number of chances we had. The moment got the better of us and we lacked composure, but even still I think we deserved to win and they got their goal in a counter-attack when we were pushing.'

'I thought there was a clear penalty for us. They didn't see it and we had bad luck with decision making. It's a shame as we deserve to fight for what we've earned throughout the season. Our finishing didn't help either.' Lopetegui pointed out the performance of Unai Simón: 'He was the best player tonight and stopped four or five goals. We lacked composure with the final pass.'

'The team are doing an extraordinary job this season. We want to keep improving: there are four games left and we will focus on the next one,' he finished.
