Montanier: We are all to blame

Real Sociedad boss Philippe Montanier said everyone was to blame for the 2-0 first leg Copa del Rey defeat to Cordoba.

The Basques have given themselves a difficult task for the return at Anoeta and the Frenchman maintained the blame for the shock defeat at the Nuevo Arcangel should be shared.

“Responsibility for getting beat is everybody’s and we are going to have to recover from it,” he told reporters.

“The Cup is a different competition and we played a bad match. It’s difficult to highlight any of the players in our squad and I don’t want to talk about individuals.

“It’s going to be difficult in the return but not impossible and this was hard for us to take, but we are going to give it everything.”

Montanier also praised the Andalusians, who currently sit ninth in La Segunda.

“Cordoba are a quality side and their goalkeeper also made two or three good saves. As for their second from the penalty spot, I’d like to see the replays because I was far from the action.”
