MATCH QUOTES

โ€I knew this game was crucial for us. I wanted to win. A draw was not the goal for this game. โ€œWe only missed the points. What we put into this game was probably the best we can do. I think we deserved more than we got. I am frustrated and also a bit sad for my players. โ€œWe are still in a very bad position but when I see my team play itโ€™s very encouraging. The performance we gave was not a bottom one. We have to score goals and be more efficient in the offensive parts.โ€ Reฬmi Garde, Saturday, 26 December 2015.
