‘EL exit makes us stronger’

Jagoba Arrasate believes Real Sociedad’s Europa League elimination against Krasnodar will make the team stronger.

La Real yesterday travelled to Russia with a 1-0 lead from the first leg but were beaten 3-0, sending the Basques out of European competition.

Krasnodar were awarded a penalty that drew the ire of Arrasate, who told reporters after the match that the spot kick was incorrectly given.

“The referee was the only one who has seen a penalty,” Marca reports the Coach as saying.

“We weren’t playing well but we were through.

“The result gives us a lot of sadness and anger. It’s a hard blow but it will make us stronger.”
