Losing 4-3 to Kosovo representative Ballkani in the third week match of the UEFA European Conference League groups, Sivasspor coach Rıza Çalımbay made a statement at the press conference held after the match.
Çalimbay said, “Individual mistakes unfortunately increased in this match. It was a match that we would have won comfortably, but unfortunately we conceded very bad goals. We conceded goals unnecessarily. When we caught 3-3, we had to evaluate it as well, but we conceded unnecessary goals. Very good clear positions came and we couldn’t score them either. “We conceded bad goals and missed bad goals. We could have finished the day well. Our opponent is a good team. We made a lot of mistakes, especially in defense. It is a sad thing to be defeated at home, but there is a rematch. We will do our best to fix it. We learn a lesson from every match. Turkey” “One of the best defenders of the country is my assistant, Professor Servet. We are also coaching the team. We are also unlucky. We should not concede these goals. Today, I only talked about the defense at the start of the match meeting. I said, “Don’t concede a goal, we will score a goal,” he said.
“WE WILL GET UP”
“How do you see your chances of getting out of groups?” Çalimbay replied, “We still have a chance. We have games to play. The important thing is that our players get better. We do not have a clear striker other than Mustapha Yatabare. There is Karol Angieslki, but he is not a clear striker. It is not clear what the match will be there. He will not leave our group. We have a chance. We will recover. We will play against Başakşehir in 2-3 days. Then we will go to Kosovo and play with Ballkani. We will show everything we can. We took all kinds of risks, but we could not stop conceding goals. There is no friend left in our defense who did not make individual mistakes. We do not have a problem with the Golden. We are scoring goals. It did not suit us to score so many goals in this match,” he said.
“BOTH THE LAG AND EUROPE IS VERY DIFFICULT”
Regarding the removal of Max Gradel at the beginning of the second half, Çalımbay said, “I took Max Gradel from the second half because it did not give anything. The reason for the decrease in Max Gradel was not come to the beginning of the season. We tried very hard to bring it, but it did not happen. We do everything. “We are constantly working. These players are last year’s players. We have to win games to get out of this environment. There is no need to do anything else. It is very difficult to take both the league and Europe. If you build a good team with alternatives, you can take both sides. We to Europe.” “If we hadn’t gone, our points would have been too high right now. We always started the exit as soon as our European adventure was over. It is difficult to take both sides with this squad at the moment,” he said.
