Coach Bordeaux Gustavo Pout have shared the emotions of victory over the “Mariupol” (3:1) in the first match of the third qualifying round of the Europa League season 18/19.
“Conceding the first goal was the key moment of the match. We reacted well to the goal conceded. We scored and immediately the second.
The expense could be different. But we were always calm. As developments in the match, I was calm on the coaching bench. And this peace is transmitted. I told my players, “Play, the goal will come.” It just happened.
Mariupol is a good team. She struck me. Collected here are good players, especially number nine (Dmitry Mishnev – ed.). They had a lot of chances. We knew they are very dangerous and we knew that they will have moments. They scored a beautiful goal. Again, “Mariupol” I liked it.
In a week we will play at 100%. In football things change quickly. We remember how PSG won 4:0 Barcelona, and then lost 1:6. If we die, we lose. Therefore, we will approach it seriously,” said Gustavo Pout UEFA’s official website.
