"I'm very angry with my players. The way we played in the second half is absolutely rubbish, the mentality was wrong.

"I'm worried for the future if we start losing our humility. I don't see why it happened today, I hope it was an accident.

"Nearly all of them don't deserve (praise). We won but in some way we lost something in the second half. I believe in what I say. Today's second half was opposite to my principle in football."
