On if he would change anything looking back at the game:

“I’ll be the first one to raise my hand and take responsibility for when things don’t go right. We really need to talk internally and make sure that we are approaching every week and every day the right way. Make sure that guys prepare, but I’m going to be honest with you, in terms of personnel, pickup or strategy. I don’t think this is a major issue. Bottomline, we need to get better as a club. We need to be better get better as a team and the only way that I know how to do that is going back on Monday morning and working.”

On his message to the fans (translated from Spanish):

“There are truly no words that will quell their anger. We feel the same, we are embarrassed. We are embarrassed because we represent the club, the fans – who are always behind us, our families, hour children, our people. This is difficult. We have to lift our head and work harder to give them the joy they deserve. This is about bringing joy to them, our families, everyone who works for the club and of course, us as a team.”
