"I realize that feeling. It's typical that they're harming. It's ordinary, since it shows that they give it a second thought. 

"Also, this gathering of players care profoundly about this football club. I think we saw that today, they gave totally everything, 100% responsibility. We attempted, we attempted, it wasn't sufficient today, that is hard to take. 

"City are an extraordinary side, an inconceivable group yet I think our gathering of players gave everything with what they have needed to manage in seven days, the absence of arrangement yet they gave everything, totally everything. That is something to be glad for. 

"I think when you lose a cup last, it's disillusioning. We're all stinging. I'm, the players are and I'm certain the fans are and everybody related with the football club. It's hard to take. Clearly it's my work, a mentor's responsibility to begin giving the players a stage and begin getting ready, begin arranging."
