Leverkusen coach after Europa League final defeat: It wasn't our day

Bayer Leverkusen’s undefeated German football season ended in the penultimate 52nd match of the season, and the team admitted that they were the weaker team against Atalanta in the final match of the European League.

Coach Xabi Alonso’s men were surprisingly toothless as they failed to deal with the high pressing method implemented by the Atalanta team, led by coach Gian Piero Gasperini, who won with three clear goals scored by Ademola Lookman during the match which took place in Dublin yesterday, Wednesday.

The Leverkusen team was completely far from the performance it presented during the season, thanks to which the team won its first title in the German round (Bundesliga) without losing, and the team was well aware of what was missing.

Xabi Alonso said in statements to the RTL network: “We have to congratulate Atalanta, they deserve it, morale was good, but we had problems in individual situations and we could not master the last pass, It wasn’t a good match and we lost. .

He added: “We wanted to change our mentality after the end of the first half… Today was not our day. We have to accept that.”

Midfielder Robert Andrich said: “It’s very unfortunate. The Atalanta team did what they always do, pressing the whole length of the pitch, and they managed to win decisive attacks .”

He added: “We have to be honest. They deserved to win. What we presented today was not enough. I think we were the best in certain periods of the match, but we did not create ourselves real chances to score goals If you concede three goals and score none, you deserve to lose. “.

Granit would not be able to come back from the result as they became famous this season.

Xhaka said: “It’s a shame that things didn’t go well in the final. We showed well until this match, and the fact that we couldn’t do what we were doing well in the final makes part of the game. We have to accept that.

The Swiss player added: “We don’t care about the unbeaten record. We didn’t care about it from the start. It was about the match and unfortunately we lost the final today. That’s the soccer.”

Leverkusen failed to win their second continental title, having already won the same tournament in 1988, then called the European Union Cup.

It should be noted that in 2002, Leverkusen lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid.

But the team can still finish the season well and add joy to the big party planned for next Sunday at home, by winning the day after tomorrow, Saturday, the final of the German Cup in Berlin, where they will face the team rival, Kaiserslautern, in the second division.

The fans did not hesitate to cheer the team in the “Dublin Arena”, where they chanted “Berlin, we are going to Berlin”. “We have to keep the momentum going,” said team captain Jonathan Tah.

He added: “We still have a very important match ahead of us. Even though it is painful now, we have to endure it. We will move forward from tomorrow.”

Alonso said: “We have to use this pain in a positive way” to achieve victory in the final match.

He stressed: “What we have achieved so far is exceptional and we should be proud of it. We will learn. The challenge will be how to respond to loss and deal with pain.”
