‘We paid for one moment of quality’

Javier Aguirre thought his Espanyol side at least a draw against Real Sociedad yesterday evening.

The Periquitos had been 1-0 up thanks to an early strike from Jhon Cordoba, but Sergio Canales and a late effort from Carlos Vela gave La Real all three points in a 2-1 win.

“No one will remember the chances we missed or the game we played,” he told a Press conference.

“Everything is forgotten after they scored that goal right at the end.

“We played more than a fair game. But paid for one moment of quality from Vela.

“We just have to finish the season well now, and try to put this at the back of our minds.”
