Espanyol coach Diego Martinez said in an interview after the game: I am proud of my players.
Regarding the result of this game I am very proud of my players, they showed the DNA of the Espanyol club, after conceding a goal first, they knew how to keep calm and took our chances to score.
Regarding the on-duty referee Laos, the referee Laos is one of the best referees in the world. I don’t want to comment on the referee’s penalty.
The fact that Lewandowski was able to play against Espanyol due to the suspension of the ban is an unusual situation and sets a very complicated precedent, on which our club has taken a stand.
In any case, facing a very strong opponent today, our players performed well and achieved an ideal result and we deserve it.
