Ivan Rakitic, protagonist in Sevilla’s draw against Wolfsburg in Germany by converting the penalty that avoided the first defeat of the season for Lopetegui’s men, valued the added point on a difficult field and confessed that the team lowered its performance level.
“The game is complicated for us by our mistakes. We needed a little more calm, confidence, the time necessary to attack … On the first play in the second half they go ahead and it’s a shame. Now we have to keep working, keep going and trust this team, ”said the Croatian midfielder.
The scorer of Sevilla’s goal against Salzburg on the first day and in Wolfsburg on the second, both from penalties, was happy and commented on the penalty play. “The VAR has gone to see it. I have not seen it and I can not comment. He has whistled it and it was necessary to take advantage of it. I was confident, I knew I was going to go inside. We take something home, “he said.
Rakitic also recognized that it would have been dangerous to lose in Germany. “We have to start winning. You have to win home games ”, he warned about upcoming matches against Lille.
