He said:

"Every game we don't win is a massive disappointment. It was very frustrating against a team with zero shots on or off target and when you have 70% of the ball.

"From the first minute to the last the goalkeeper was placing goal-kicks from the left and then moving them to the right. They were standing in front of the ball at free-kicks. It was negative but that's the game is going at the moment.

"It's like a film you have seen 10 times. It is becoming boring."

"There was no real space and it was not easy up front. We played well but it's not excellent when you cannot score. We lacked sharpness and vision in the final third. We didn't attack the ball well on crosses."

"We have to be more rigorous on set-pieces like that and not concede goals, but that's easier to correct if you can't make two passes.

"I have nothing against negative football if it is played with the right spirit."
