Medina – September 9, 2019 Last week Danny Cowley rejected the chance to coach Huddersfield Town in the English Championship, but today he accepted saying it was a good opportunity.“We looked nervous and looked uncomfortable in possession. We rushed our situations and did not perform on the level we are able to perform, especially offensively.“Because we were so poor in ball possession there were a lot of spaces that we were not able to fill. We lost the ball too easily. Second half was better, but I have said that we have to set the tone.“If you are uncomfortable and pass the ball back too many times, you can see what the pressure does to you.“We were not brave enough in a lot of situations. The players reacted in the second half, which we needed as first half was not good enough. We have to accept this defeat which hurts and take it on the chin.”last_img
