Carvalhal insisted that taking a risk backfired


Swansea City were beaten at Brighton despite their current great form 4-1 and Carlos Carvalhal admitted that the risk he decided to took backfired as he pulled on another striker while being 1-0 down.

The Welsh team were on a 10-matches unbeaten run and it was ended at Brighton today – after pulling on another striker, Swansea conceded another three goals and the home team were able to secure their win in this important battle,

The Portuguese coach spoke about his side’s performance as he said, according to Sky Sports:

“When we were losing 1-0 I was thinking we must change things, so we put Ayew in the attack.”

“We took the risks because we were not happy to lose and we wanted to try to win. So we put Luciano and Tammy on.”

“It was a big bet and with a big bet you can win lots of money or you can lose lots of money.”

“We knew if we scored one we could win, but we also knew if they scored another on the counterattack it would be difficult, and that’s what happened.”
