Europa: Slavia Coach Unimpressed With Olayinka, Teammates Despite Away Draw vs Arsenal 

Slavia Prague head coach Jindřich Trpišovský says he was not impressed his with team’s performance despite their 1-1 draw against Arsenal, in Thursday’s Europa League first-leg quarter-finals at the Emirates.

Olayinka featured from the start of the encounter before he was replaced with five minutes left.

But speaking after the game, Trpišovský said his players must do better in the second-leg to stand a chance of advancing into the semi-finals.

“We need to get better for the second leg, this wasn’t our best performance,” he was quoted on his club’s verified Twitter handle.

“We wanted to press high, but we couldn’t really work together. On the other side, our pressing led to the equalizer. The lads did their best at the end.”

He added:”Arsenal proved their qualities. They have great players, quick and technically skilled. 

“We had problems with Lacazette who managed to set up their wingers. We improved after the break, but Arsenal got into their chances anyway.”
