Atalanta Bergamo-defender Hans Hateboer regretted Thursday night firmly of the elimination by Borussia Dortmund in the sixteenth finals of the Europa League. He found that there was more in he had been for his team.
“We have a fantastic group stage had; no contest lost and played very well. Then you know that the big teams will come as you continue to the next round and we had Dortmund. Nevertheless, we were certainly not outgunned,” said Hateboer for the camera of FOX Sports.
The former player of FC Groningen wrote Atalanta in Bergamo after the 3-2 defeat last week in Dortmund has good chances, but could return a 1-1 draw – despite a 1-0 lead – not prevent. The fatal end of Marcel Schmelzer fell in the 83rd minute.
“I had by our way of playing and the audience that behind it was the feeling that it still could work. We still have a few kansjes had a big one at 2-0 even, but they ‘m not. They remained just like last week in Germany, press convert and then fell to the goal scorer yet,” said Hateboer.
“I don’t want to say that we have everything under control, because we don’t have our best game played, but we gave very little away. Actually nothing. That Dortmund five minutes before time, scored is very acid. It could just as easily be otherwise expire.”
