Football: Shakhtar showed great courage, Fonseca

The Portuguese coach of the Pitmen’s last match

The Pitmen’s head coach Paulo Fonseca believes his team did well against Manchester city in the Champions League, as reported by the channel “Football”.

“Today I am unhappy because we lost. But I should be proud of the guys. Shakhtar showed great courage. We tried to play, with the ball, we came out on the attack fairly accurately. Was very compact, leaving space for man city. Also very high quality came out in attack when he had the chance. I’ll be honest. Watched all the matches of man city. This year they have not come across a team that created so many difficulties. So of course I am unhappy with the defeat. But proud and happy with the team,” said Fonseca.

“I think everyone saw what should have been a penalty in our favor. Was very clearly visible hand – it could be a completely different result. Then it was 1:0 but could be 1:1. I in any case do not complain about referees, just stating a fact, which was visible to all of you,” added the coach.

Recall, “Manchester city” beat “Shakhtar” with the score 2-0 and confidently led the group F.
