We valued their encouragements, the criticism and messages of solidarity even as we went into the competition. This we continue to do so,” the captain told the club media.

“ Actually they (the fans) pushed us to a good fight and we had the chances to go beyond this stage but that is what football is. You make little mistakes as a’s all done.
