Every shot that Hyderabad FC took went into the net: Odisha FC’s Kiko Ramirez

Odisha FC head coach Kiko Ramirez felt some of his players didn’t carry out their duties on the pitch as expected as his team lost 1-6 to Hyderabad FC in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL).

Ramirez felt the result was a harsh reality that his team needed to accept. However, the Spaniard urged his team to look forward to the next match as there is plenty of time to get the season back on track.

Winless in four, Odisha FC have slipped behind in the race for the semi-final spots.

Ramirez spoke to the media after the match and here are the excerpts from his press conference:

Going into half-time it was a fairly even game. But things went downhill in the second half. What went wrong?

Every shot of the opponent went into the net. Everyone can see that.

Four games without a win. How do you pick the team up for the next assignment?

No. We will try to digest this result. It's important to sleep well, wake up and prepare for the next match.

Does this string of poor results impact your top four aspirations?

It affects our mood now and how we feel. As for the season, it's very long. Also some of the mistakes that are happening match after match are affecting us. Today we played badly and lost 6-1. There were players who didn't work properly on the pitch. That's the reality and we lost 6-1.
