Head coach on QPR loss.
Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa spoke to the media following Sunday’s defeat at Queens Park Rangers.
The Whites exited the Emirates FA Cup at the Third Round stage, suffering a narrow 2-1 loss at Loftus Road.
Bielsa had mixed emotions, happy with some aspects of the performance and disappointed with others.
“I’m never happy when I lose a game, if the consequences are positive or not,” said Bielsa.
“We didn’t find the right solution for set pieces, we took decisions which were not useful for us and we didn’t need to take these types of decision.
“Even if the games had ups and downs, I can’t say that I am not satisfied, I think our offensive play was good enough.
“But when we have a look at the dangerous situations of the opponent, they have a common factor- we lost the ball playing horizontal passes and we could have avoided this and we had a lack of quality at set-pieces.
“Apart from the aspect mentioned, the set-pieces and the passes we made- we could say the opponent didn’t deserve to win.
“We have to evaluate if we deserved to lose the three games that we have, the second thing we do is evaluate the positive and negative aspects and we need to correct the negative things and underline the positives.
“The game of next Friday against Derby County is very important and I think the mental state of the players will be linked more to the future than the past.”
