Prandelli laments ‘unfair’ loss

Cesare Prandelli lamented Valencia’s “unfair” 2-1 defeat to Sevilla but insisted “we’ll only lose a few games playing like this”.

Nicolas Pareja’s late strike and a Sergio Rico save to deny Jose Gaya at the death extended Valencia’s winless run in La Liga to six, but Prandelli was adamant his side had done enough to come away with at least a point.

“It’s unfair, the team had a good game, with courage and character, and didn’t deserve to lose,” he said after. It was very unfair,” the Coach said after the match.

“Gaya’s chance? In other games, we’ve conceded near the death and our luck is what it is.

“You have to take [chances like Gaya’s], but we have to keep working and if we keep going like this, we’ll only lose a few games.

“The dressing room? When players haven given 100 percent, it’s normal that they’re disappointment.

“Still, football is our job, we’ll train tomorrow and we have another game coming up. It’s the only way to recover.

“Chants of ‘Segunda, Segunda’? We have to keep our heads up. We’ll only lose a few games playing like this.

“I’ve found positives. We were up to the task, I’ve told that to the players. We’ll see the details later.”
