Cagliari coach sorry for Coppa Italia loss
The Rossoblu were eliminated from the competition by Lega Pro Prima Divisione side Frosinone, after the lower league team broke a 1-1 tie by scoring in extra time before penalties, which resulted in a 2-1 loss for the 10-man Isolani squad.
Lopez spoke to Cagliari’s official website about the loss and made it clear that they will still fight hard this season.
“I’m sorry for the defeat, especially because it was played well by our team,” said the former Sardi defender.
“The episodes turned against us. In the last minute we had an opportunity and did not score, while our opponent capitalised on our mistake.
“It was not easy to play almost the entire game with a man less. These situations are hard to handle in the league, especially when you play well and it’s the beginning of the season.
“Nevertheless, we held the field well and created several scoring chances.
“For us, nothing changes. No one likes to lose, but this defeat should not take away from our confidence.
“This is football. We must now continue to work and improve.”
