Pellegrini: “It hurts to lose both points”

The Real Betis coach, Chilean Manuel Pellegrini, stated that his team “had to leave the goal blank to win” the game against Cádiz, which ended in a 1-1 draw, against a rival who he considered “difficult a lot “to create opportunities and” with a goal against, even more.

Pellegrini “is happy with the team’s performance, but a goal is missing”, although he said that he sees his players “with confidence and on the right path, but it hurts to lose two points”, so it only remains “to improve and hopefully we can win the third game. “

“We had chances, but we did not find the space for the second goal. The chances of Miranda, Canales and Joaquín have not reached us to win, so the draw is fair. You cannot concede such an easy goal,” Pellegrini summed up in the Benito Villamarín press room.

The Santiago coach complained about the loss of time in Cádiz, denouncing that “the referees cannot allow the players to delay so much”, and also recalled that “they already said the other day that the Spanish league is the slowest league in Europe. It is something that favors a team that defends. “

The coach continues to miss reinforcements in his squad because “Emerson, Mandi and Sanabria left”, and added “the first is well supplied” by the Argentine Germán Pezzella, but he advanced that the French-Negalese Youssouf Sabaly, a right-back signed this summer, ” he will miss four months “due to a muscle injury; “Sanabria already has to supply it.”

For the Betic coach, the need to sign a forward is also based on the fact that “Loren has the doors open to go to a team in which he has more opportunities and more minutes”, something that he pointed out that he has already “spoken with him” .

For this reason, the Chilean indicated that “there will be adjustments” before August 31, since the club “knows what needs” the squad has and “is working.”

Pellegrini insisted that “nothing can be blamed on the team, no one can be frustrated by the attitude” because Betis “is on the right track”, although it needs “a balanced squad to be in the three competitions.”
