Villarreal player: We put in a great performance and we deserved to beat Bayern Munich
Giovanni Lo Celso, player of the Spanish club Villarreal, spoke at the expense of his German counterpart Bayern Munich, 1-0, in the match that took place between them, Wednesday evening, at the “La Ceramica” stadium, in the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the current season 2021-2022.
Giovanni Lo Celso was awarded the best player of the match by the European Football Association Technical Committee “UEFA” after he presented an outstanding level during the meeting.
“Bayern were the favorites, so first I would like to thank the rest of my team-mates for the tremendous effort they have just made,” said Giovanni Lo Celso.
Giovanni Lo Celso added: “Villarreal is a hungry team, even against one of the best teams in the world despite our modesty. We put in a tremendous performance and, frankly, the result should have been more in our favour.”
The Villarreal star stressed: “The first word that comes to my mind about this performance is pride, we knew that if we missed the ball cheaply we would really suffer against Bayern Munich but we created a lot of chances and could have won more goals, it was one of the goals we had before the game It is to show the world a good image of Villarreal, I’m sure of that.”
Lo Celso concluded: “It was absolutely clear that we had to attack and defend as one. In the second match, we will have our potential to qualify.”
