Piazon: Malaga played well

Lucas Piazon reflected on his debut for Malaga last night and on the performance of his teammates in defeat against Barcelona.

The Brazilian youngster has joined Malaga on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season and debuted in his new side’s 4-2 home defeat to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals on Thursday.

“We played well tonight, but unfortunately our performance wasn’t reflected in the end result,” commented the attacking midfielder to reporters.

“The entire team played well and really gave it 100 per cent until the end, but the result didn’t go in our favour.

“I’m very pleased to have made my debut tonight, it was an incredible atmosphere and the fans were amazing.  We’re all very happy with our performance.

“It’s always going to be tough competing against Barca, but we played very good football tonight, maintaining the 2-2 draw until the final 15 minutes. It was a very good night for us overall.

“I’m so happy to be here, and pleased with how we performed tonight, despite the final result.”
