His comment Bart Schenkefeld for his defeat Panathinaikou from Villarreal, the message ahead of the “final” with Maccabi and the joy for Juancar and Aitor.
What he said in detail
“We started pretty well and were in control in the first few minutes, but after the first goal we conceded…we lost a bit as a team. In the second half we pressed with more intensity. And if you push hard and effectively this team makes mistakes. But if you give them time they play very good football, but if you put them under pressure they will make mistakes. So our intensity was higher in the second half and we had the chances and they made so many mistakes».
-For the “final” with Maccabi Haifa: “We all know very well how we have to win this particular game. And that is our goal».
-For the reaction of Panathinaikos in the last 30 minutes, even if it is a good “path” for the continuation: “I think we have to start our matches from the beginning with the intensity we showed and produced in the second half. There we played a better game as a team and were more balanced against them. If you let them play, they have the quality and don’t need many chances to score. They have quality. This is always the “key” in our game. The tension, because as you saw when we play like this we are equal against these teams».
-For the return of Huancar and Aitor: “It is very good that Juancar is back, that Aitor is back and is finding his playing time again. He’s slowly getting his confidence back and I’m really happy for him for how he came in and played so well in this game».
