According to Manchester City forward Tessa Wullaert his team can focus now on the UEFA Women’s Champions League after defeating Manchester United on Saturday.
The Red Devils are participating for the first time, and the historic Manchester derby was played for the first time ever.
And for Citizens’ forward Tessa Wullaert the focus is now shifting to the UEFA Women’s Champions League match against Swiss side Lugano.
“We had a couple of days off after Saturday, but now it’s time to move forward and to focus on Lugano,” Wullaert said to the club’s official website.
“We’re happy, even if we (know) we need to work.”
“However, we can’t start against Lugano as we started against United,” she added.
“We know what we have to work on now and we will do it.”
“We’ve got three points which were the most important thing,” Wullaert commented.
“When you watched the game, the first half was very bad, and we know it.”
She continued: “We know we can do much better (and) we made a lot of technical faults.”
“In the locker room, we knew that we had to do much better. That’s what we did in the second period.”
“We tried to find more spaces, to keep the ball and put more intensity and then we scored,” she said.
“They had many opportunities, but we won 1-0 and we can be happy even if we didn’t play well.”
Confirmed ➡ Manchester is blue! 💙
