Abelardo: ‘Winning is difficult when there is a lack of concentration’

The coach of the Alaves, Abelard
Fernandez, lamented the “lack of concentration” of his players in the comeback he suffered this Monday in the field of Betis (3-2) and said that “winning is very difficult” when certain mistakes are made, so he considered that they should “live the games for ninety minutes.”

Abelardo assumed that the Vitoria team has suffered “a big stick”, since it has not “deserved to lose” but “the twenty not good minutes” of its players “have penalized it against a good rival, but there is no other option than to get up” because “Saturday comes a very important game” against the Cadiz in Mendizorroza.

For the Asturian coach, “today’s game was good”, although he repeated that “the stick is hard, it was a shame” and could penalize Alavés against a “fundamental game” like the one on the next day.

“If we were in the middle of the table we would have won the game but when you are down these things happen,” Abelardo stressed at the press conference after the match.
