Third goal made me mad, we defended too much! Goalkeeper talks about Red Star's mistakes v. Bayern
Borjan and his teammates agree - how did we even concede that third goal?!
Red Star goalkeeper Milan Borjan is unhappy because his team, despite being the weaker rival in the duel with Bayern, could have mananged a far more favorable result in Munich.
That's what it looked like, too, because the Germans were up 1-0 until the last ten minutes, when Red Star conceded two more goals and lost its opening game in this year's Champions League campaign 3-0.
"Heavy defeat. I regret that it ended 3-0, it could have remained 1-0 or 1-1 because we had that chance in the second half. We lack more experience, we played well defensively, but we miss playing more. We defend a lot, we need to go out and relax. The team was in a spasm the whole first half. No reason for that, these are the most beautiful games we could possibly play. But there. We must lift our heads and win the derby (v. Partizan) this weekend," Borjan said after the match.
When asked which of the Bayern footballers made the strongest impression, Borjan didn't single anyone out.
"They are all top players and that's why they are where they are, there are no individuals to be singled out. They all played great and that's why they won," added the red-and-whites' goalkeeper, who was quite angry with his teammates after the third goal.
"I was angry because I asked for four people in the wall and I was shouting to watch out because Muller was on the side, to watch out for the fast ball and fast play. What happened happened, he caught me out of step and we conceded that goal for no reason. I knew, that's why I yelled, I don't know if they didn't hear me or if they were concentrated on the wall, but it happens. One learns from these mistakes. We must all move forward together," Borjan said.
The Red Star goalkeeper also observed that the Serbian club's fans who traveled to Munich yesterday were "ten times louder than Bayern's." The Serbian champion will plays the next Champions League game against Olympiakos at home on October 1, while Bayern will face Tottenham.
