“I think we deserved to win this evening. Only I can be disappointed about not controlling the match better.
“I think VAR is very important for the referees because their mistakes are very important.
“When it’s used in the right way but now we haven’t checked a lot of things to not change the pace of the match.
“Pepe and Soktratis’ penalties were very clear but they didn’t check. Maybe they are starting to check more after this week.
