Coach Eusebio Di Francesco faced the media right after the disappointing defeat against Celta Vigo.
The Italian coach was concerned about the bad performance of his guys.
“It was a technical, tactical and physical disaster today. I didn’t like the way the team approached or prepared for the game.
We had a reaction in the second half but it’s not enough.This match serves as a lesson for all of us. We need to raise the bar in training. We definitely have a lot to work to do.
Our level of aggression at the start was wrong and we didn’t have the kind of directness I like to see. Thankfully it was only a friendly.
Anyway, I think this match was important in order to be able to draw conclusions on where we are right now. We have some weaknesses and things to improve on and we’ll look at those with the sporting director.”
