Athletic lost the Cup final to Real Sociedad on Saturday. The team did not know how to compete in the second half and was finally worth the penalty goal scored by Oyarzabal so that the title went to Donostia.
The rojiblanco team enjoyed a rest day on Sunday and yesterday began training to prepare for the league event on Wednesday in Anoeta against the executioner in the KO tournament.
It is time to recover mentally because there are still beautiful goals ahead. The most important is the second match for the Cup championship that the lions will play on April 17, in this case with Barça as a rival.
Ibai is already looking ahead. “Losing a final is always hard, very hard; but football also has that facet ”, said the Santutxu striker on his Twitter account. The ‘7’ rojiblanco recognized that they were not well in La Cartuja, but sent a message of hope to all the fans: “In 15 days we have a new opportunity to try to bring you what you deserve.”
Finally, the Bilbao man congratulated the Real for the victory. You can win or lose on the field of play, but what you can never lose is sportsmanship.
