Nikolic: Football punishes for that kind of attitude

Lokomotiv’s head coach Marko Nikolic reflects on the defeat against Rotor (1:2) in Gameweek 12 of the Russian Premier League.

- Congratulations to Rotor on the victory. Games like this kill you, when you miss so many chances. We said that this game is crucial, but there was no concentration, desire, discipline. We had a lot of chances, while the opponent had two shots on goal - and a goal. But we continue to work and move on.

- How will this result affect the team before the match with Bayern?

- Someone might think that the match against Bayern is one of the reasons for the defeat. But in previous matches we were disciplined, did not concede in five games out of six. And today we lost concentration, did not react to the game properly. Football punishes for this. If you look at what happened on the pitch, we didn't deserve to lose, but when you don't do everything one hundred percent, you will lose.
