manager of Villarreal Unai Emeryadmitted that the 4-2 obtained against Hadjuk Split in the first leg of the previous phase of Conference League allowed them to travel to Croatia next week (August 26) with the advantage, but stressed that the result could have been better.
“We have made changes to the idea of sentence to him or that they got hooked, which is what happened, and with 4-2 we have closed with the feeling that it could have been better than it has been”, said Emery in the press conference after the game.
“The positive part is that we go with the determination that the game still has to play”, added the Basque coach, stressing that they go to Croatia with the idea of “to provide continuity” in what was done this Thursday in Valencia.
The Villarreal coach said it was a “tougher” result than he would have liked. “We played a game where everything happened. We conceded more than we wanted in the second half. We haven’t defended well since the first goal.” commented.
