Atlético Mineiro’s Fernandinho: “We have to learn from our mistakes”
Fernandinho feels that the team must learn from their mistakes and move on from their defeat in the FIFA Club World Cup to Raja Casablanca.
The forward spoke to FIFA after the defeat to Raja Casablanca, a game which all fans felt it was Mineiro’s to take but a 2-1 defeat saw them crash out of the tournament.
And the 28 year old feels that the team must rally round and learn from their mistakes: “We have to learn from defeats and take the lessons on board. We have to lift our heads because we're fighters.”
20,000 Atletico Mineiro fans travelled to Casablanca to support their team and Fernandinho felt the disappointment of letting them down: “Of course, the disappointment will be with us for some time, because we were desperate to win and play the final, to perhaps give our fans another trophy to celebrate."
"Unfortunately it didn’t work out that way, but I’m sure better days will come.”
