Íñigo Ruiz de Galarreta y Aleix Febas analyse our 2-0 defeat at Athletic Bilbao

The centre midfielders spoke to the media after our loss at San Mamés

Íñigo Ruiz de Galarreta y Aleix Febas were on media duties as we suffered a frustrating 2-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao. Goals from Vivían and Inaki Williams saw us register our first loss of the season. Find out what the pair had to say about the game, the goals and bouncing back.

On the match...

Ruiz de Galarreta: "Personally, coming back here is something very special. We have to move on from this. I think the team played a very serious game at a difficult place to come to. It is a pity that we went behind because of a foul. Before the goal, the team was good and we were in control. We had a few chances. At 1-0, we turned our backs and they scored the second. It's a shame, but we have to keep going.”

Febas: "We had a very good 60 minutes until the goal, but they scored again from a set piece. From that point on, we went into a slump. Sedlar was injured and the team suffered at the back due to injuries.”

On the next match...

Ruiz de Galarreta: "Now we have to recover and correct our mistakes. We are very ambitious and we are going to prepare for the next game with a lot of desire to try to get the victory. We will continue with this attitude and be competitive across every match.”

Febas: "We have to be, as far as we can be, happy. We are ambitious and the team will keep working. In this division you have to take advantage of the good runs, but it's time to think about the next game.”
