Rafa`s Excuse Book - WHU (a)
After taking an eternity to come out and face the press, Rafa the unwanted Gaffer came up with the following;-
'I think it was a foul [on Ivanovic for the first goal] but I don't want to use this an excuse. We conceded the goal and then they were on top.'
'At this level you have to take your chances and we had many clear chances to finish the game. In the second half we were not winning the first ball or the second ball and we didn't have the control we had in the first half.'
'When you concede goals it is normally because you have made mistakes. We have to keep working and try to improve.'
'We have to be more clinical. We have good positions and we have to have the quality and confidence. We had situations with two or three players and we have to take our chances.'
