RC Celta manager Miguel Cardoso described RC Celta’s defeat to Athletic Club in ABANCA Balaídos as “fair “. The Portuguese manager regretted his team’s first match of the year. “We were far from what we had until now. In football and in this competition matches are played to the limit and we were very far from that. Today we lost and we lost properly,” he said at the press conference.
Cardoso said that “you have to do more on the pitch to win” and valued the importance of each game. “We put our lives on the line in every game. Winning today would also have put us in a better position and we knew we were fighting for that. We didn’t have the attitude to understand it,” said the Portuguese.
