Pellegrini: "We allowed them to dominate the second half”

Málaga Club de Fútbol’s coach, Manuel Pellegrini, held a post-match press conference in the Vicente Calderón stadium, following Málaga’s defeat by Club Atlético de Madrid (2-1).

Statements from Manuel Pellegrini

“I think it was an unfair result, as they didn’t really create any goal opportunities in the second half, even though they managed to score twice, and we didn’t really have that many chances in the first half.  Our performance wasn’t as good, and we began to lose possession, failing to have any goal chances, leaving the locals to increase their attack and dominate control of the game”.

“We need to continue our fight for Champions in our next match at home against Sporting, in front of our fans.  We won’t be able to reach third place in the League now, but will ensure we maintain our fourth position.  It won’t be an easy match, as this rival will be going all out to win”.

“We unfortunately lost another match”.
