A scenario all the more cruel as the first goal follows an unclear penalty conceded by Renato Sanches for contact with Nicolas Tagliafico. “We’re a bit disgusted. The referee made his decision but for me, there is no penalty “, also confided the Lille striker at a press conference, while acknowledging the domination of Ajax:” It was a good team . They have a very good game. We were a bit in trouble in the first half but we scored the first goal, I think we should not take those two goals. “
The analysis proposed by José Fonte was more surprising. “I think we did a good job in the first half, we were ‘comfortable’ defensively, we were trying to get out in transition. It’s our game plan to be solid, compact and use our forward speed. In the second half, our plan was the same and we scored the goal, ”he explained. The two men agreed on the other hand to point the finger at the whistle of the referee on the penalty awarded to the visitors. “The decision of the referee is difficult to accept and has changed everything”, indeed regretted the Portuguese defender.
