“But still, it’s a fact that we lost. So we are concerned because it’s the worst feeling for me to lose.
“It’s a bit too much (to say) that we are unlucky in the last weeks. I don’t like to stress it too much because it seems like we talk about it too many times.
“But it is like this. We were simply not lucky in these games. We cannot deny that we had good performances.
“So, yes and no; we are concerned but there is no second thoughts. There is only all in for Saturday’s match.”
