What The Bosses Said - Chelsea Vs Latics

What The Bosses Said - Chelsea Vs Latics


Wigan Athletic travelled down to West London to take on Chelsea yesterday and were very unfortunate not to take anything out of the game, Frank Lampard netting a 91st minute winner, obviously there was different reaction from the two opposing bosses Steve Bruce from the Latics and Guus Hiddink of Chelsea, lets see what they had to say:


Latics boss Steve Bruce:

'I thought we deserved something but we didn't get it unfortunately.

'In my opinion the referee has made a poor decision. He is only 15 yards away from it. Frank has obviously got his hand in Mario's back and he has turned him round as he's gone to head it.

'It is obvious that he has got that one wrong and it has gone against us. That is a big shame because I thought the team deserved to get something from the game.

'We don't seem to get these decisions in big games, on a big stage.

'We need the referee to be strong and not to get influenced. But it seems to happen all the time. We can go to Anfield and Stamford Bridge and it doesn't seem to matter against little Wigan. It is very frustrating and disappointing as you can imagine.'

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink

'The team reacted well after we conceded. It is always difficult to get into the next game after playing at European level in midweek.

'But Wigan deserve a lot of respect for the way they played. they are hard-working and disciplined and play decent football. They caused us lots of problems.

'They scored the equaliser but the reaction of our team was good in getting the winner in the 90th minute.

'When you are dominating in the first period we like the game killed. But I am happy and satisfied for the win.

'But the way we gave away the control in the second-half is not super-satisfying. I have to be happy but also critical as to where we need to improve.'
