Team Manager Mischa - press conference after the match against FC Seoul  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa after the AFC Champions League 2016 Knock-out Stage Round 16 second match against FC Seoul

We lost the match in such a painful and unfortunate way today. During the first half of the match, FC Seoul had a better start and the most our team did was to kick long balls. As a result, our opponent team led the match by scoring one goal before the end of the first half.

As for the second half of the match, our players played the type of soccer we aimed to play. We had to score a goal to catch up with our opponent in order to win. After FC Seoul scored another goal during over time, our players played courageously by using all their strength that was left to score another goal. However, our opponent team scored yet another goal during extended additional time. Had we been able to score a goal when a penalty kick was awarded, our team could have won the match. However, we were not able to nail the opportunity. As we had two chances which could have brought a victorious result for us, we had such a painful defeat today.
