“We prepared excellently well, only that the goals conceded two cheap goals, the first being a penalty and the second one a mistake from the players, again, we didn’t lose because they were better than us, but luckier and if we meet next time, the result won’t be the same as today.

“I’m highly disappointed, because the boys didn’t play to instruction. We had a tactical plan, but this is a game – you win some and lose some. The most painful thing is that we were planning to win the title for the second time on a row.

“We won the cup last year, and this year we wanted to win a again and make history with GTBank since no one has done it before, unfortunately, it is a game, we take it as it come, just that it is very painful to crash out at this stage of the tournament.”
