Jagoba Arrasate, Osasuna’s coach, regretted this Thursday the elimination of his team from the Conference League after being knocked out against Bruges due to three fateful minutes as the reds made it 0-2 on the scoreboard and the Belgian team ended up drawing the bet. And Osasuna, outside of Europe.
“We are very hurt. Yesterday we said that we believed, that we were going to try, and that’s how it has been. The pity is that you put zero to two, there are 20 minutes left and in the blink of an eye they tie the game and you stay out “We have tried until the last action. It has been a tie in which many things have happened. I think it has been a great tie between two good teams. It is a shame that we have faced each other now. But it is also true that we have made some a mistake for which we have paid dearly”, the rojillo coach acknowledged after the debacle.
Al thread Arrasate insisted that “it’s a big stick but we have to continue. The team has shown its face. We have to be hurt but proud of the team and the fans. Today we have to lay the first stone to continue building and improving. I’m sure that These experiences are good for us even though we are hurt now”.
And he did not avoid self-criticism either. “If you analyze the tie, in Pamplona we also made some mistakes and that is what makes you sad. Sometimes the errors are forced because the rival has a lot of quality. But the unforced ones are the ones that have decided the tie and that is what we It’s a pity. He had put his face on. I feel sorry above all for the kids, who deserved to play that group stage, and for the fans”, he sentenced.
