What did Jonas Eidevall say after the FA Cup Final defeat?
“It was a poor performance from us, from the quality. It’s not the effort that’s failing, the players were trying very, very hard on the pitch, but we don’t have good enough quality in our passing game today or in our defensive play and that’s very disappointing in a game like this that we can’t perform better.
The only thing we can do is learn from that and come back stronger... It’s so important [to respond against Barcelona]. It will all start with believing 100% in what we’re trying to do on the pitch and to show ourselves and everyone else that we can do much, much better than we done today.”
It could be another tough night for Arsenal if Barcelona run out comfortable winners. Arsenal 0-3 Barcelona
