We lost because of our mistakes: Cuadrat

The Boss Discusses Lessons To Be Learned From A Disappointing Result In The Capital

His thoughts on the game…

There are a lot of things that happen in a football game. I think once we took the lead we were not having a lot of problems and we should have been working to maintain the scoreline. Unfortunately, there was a mistake inside the box in marking Daniel, and we left the ball completely alone. Once you have the ball at that position, anything can happen. We were trying to stick to the plan to go for the game but it was not possible.

On ex-Blue Daniel’s brace…

I have to congratulate Daniel. I have worked with him for two years and he is a fantastic professional. It is football, and these things happen. I don’t know if he was extra motivated (for the clash against BFC), but he was doing his job. Sunil was not scoring in so many games and now he has been scoring 3 games in a row. I have been talking a lot to Josep Gombau, we know each other from Barcelona, and he has always said that they are not taking advantage of the chances that they have created to score goals. Today, we had a very good chance in the first minute, a very clear chance with Miku and it should have been 1-0. But we missed the chance and they scored with the first good attack they had. It’s football – there are a lot of things happening and sometimes things play for you and sometimes against you.

On the mistake for the third goal…

It is difficult to judge whose mistake it was, I couldn’t see it on the TV so will have to take a look at it later. But it is clear that we had a 2-1 lead which was wonderful but we lost it, and it was because of our mistakes.

On whether qualifying for the knockouts played a part in the loss…

No, I don’t think so. Our plan before the game was to be calm because we have got our primary target which was to achieve the play-offs. Once we are in the play-offs, we have to fight for the title, but we have to learn a lot of things to achieve the second target. Maybe games like these against Delhi and Chennaiyin help us to be more competitive in the play-offs; I hope so.
