THIERRY HENRY

"We controlled the game in the second half. I loved our reaction. We took the game in our hands. But once again, we need to learn, hopefully sooner rather than later. We wanted the three points for the league standings. It would have been great to make the comeback, but it didn't happen. Playing with 10 men was difficult."

SAMUEL PIETTE

"We all knew what was at stake tonight. If we would have won, we would have qualified for the final. It's very disappointing to us. And we lost the three points in the league standings. It's on us tonight. I'm disappointed because we had the control of the game. In the last game, the collective was really good and we continued on that today."

SAPHIR TAÏDER

"Recently, there have been a few individual mistakes. We are disappointed by the result, but we won't focus only on one player. Since I'm at the club, the last three or four games have been our best soccer. I have fun playing because we attack. I find myself in the box. The coach talks a lot with us. It's a new system and we will be better if the collective works together."
