Bruno Talks About The Draw

Talking about his side’s inability to address the elephant in the room, Bruno Fernandes was blatant in his angst at the side’s persistent defensive mistakes. The side’s top scorer who scored the team’s second goal against Everton talked about how the team needed to get the monkey off its back.

“There are a lot of things to be disappointed with. We were making so many mistakes in the last few games and we can’t keep conceding goals like that,” Bruno Fernandes said.

“We have to be more focused, we have to have the same desire to score and to defend our goal. Every time we have to make goals and score goals, it has to be the same to not concede and I think we have to learn from this.

“It’s already happened a lot of times so it’s more than a bit disappointing. You talk about everything that’s going on, but it’s about learning and making it better.

“It’s really bad. You can’t concede goals like that because from a full 50 yards they are a long way from our goal. We have to be more focused, we have to be ready and we have to be more stronger. We have to defend our goal with everything.”

“Everyone knows the past is the past and you can do nothing, but the future you can do something about.

“So everybody has to be ready and learn from this game. Everything we learn from this game we have to put in the next one and try to win. We have to win.”
