‘We went to Leverkusen to win’

Haris Seferovic remarked on the one-off nature of Jens Hegeler’s winner for Bayer Leverkusen, which has left Real Sociedad pointless in Europe.

La Real are yet to register in their second ever appearance in the Champions League thanks to Hegeler’s last-minute free-kick at BayArena determining a 2-1 defeat for Jagoba Arrasate’s men on Wednesday.

“I think Leverkusen were better in the first half, while we dominated the second half,” Seferovic summed up.

“Nevertheless, Bayer won the three points, but Hegeler is probably never going to score another goal like that one in the last minute in his entire life.

“We came here to win, not to draw or lose even.

“We will now go to Manchester [United FC] and of course we also want to win there. A point will not be enough for us.

“We will give our best, despite having a young team and maybe we can make the impossible possible after all.”
