Xavi Quintilla: We should have taken at least a point

27 September 2020

Norwich City left-back Xavi Quintilla says the team’s second-half performance warranted at least a point after their 1-0 loss to Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon.

City were hunting an equaliser throughout the second-half but had no luck in finding that all-important levelling goal.

Speaking on the loss, Quintilla believes the second-half performance was nonetheless a good one, saying the team deserved a point at minimum from the Cherries.

“I think the second-half was a great performance for the team, the first-half was closer and tougher, but the second was a really good performance.

“We had really good chances to score goals, a lot of set-pieces creating good chances, so I think the team had a top performance in the second-half. We really had to take at least one point or three points from Bournemouth.”

Speaking on the start to the season after one win, one draw and one loss, Quintilla says the team remain hungry for more, especially after fighting hard to earn their four points from the first two fixtures.

“The team is hungry for more, hungry to have a really good presence. The first two games it was our form of play, today and especially the second-half we had really good chances to draw the game.

“The player behind Max was a penalty kick, then one set-piece I took had a handball, but that game is now in the past and instead we look forward as a team.”
