"We played well for most of the match, we have to accept this bad result, we're sorry. But I can't blame the boys for anything: I congratulate Emery and Villarreal because they played a fair game. Their intention was to perhaps take the game to extra time or take advantage of certain moments, and they did it in the best way; we were a bit too naive."
"There are no explanations for this defeat: we played a good first half, but not scoring a goal hampered us; football is like this, now we have to think about the championship; playing against these great teams is difficult, we knew it, we have to get up and turn the page quickly."
"A strange game? After a 0-3 it is difficult to say, the little things make the difference and it seems that we are looking for alibis. We weren't good, after the 0-1 we had to score, and instead we were punished. We must apologise and immediately raise our heads, starting to work again from tomorrow."
