It wasn’t easy playing as a defender. It’s been good performances so far, and today was fair too.

”I think we deserved at least a point from the game because we gave our all and tried our best.

”I’d have preferred playing as a left high winger and not as a low winger. But it is football, and you have to do what the coach wants.

”It wasn’t easy for me, because I had to track back to help the defense, watch the attackers runs, and the defenders too.

”The role is not new to me, I’ve been playing as a left winger for two years now.”

On his coach’s reactions after the game, he said;

”The coach embraced us, encouraged us to do well because nobody felt we could even pick a point but we have tried our best.

”We will see how next season will be and will try to return here,” he concluded.
