Arveladze’s Bristol City Reaction

30 April 2022

Shota Arveladze pulled no punches after the “terrible” five-goal defeat at Bristol City, admitting his well-beaten side were too “soft”.

Braces from Andreas Weimann and Chris Martin, as well as a goal from Antoine Semenyo, condemned the Tigers to their biggest defeat of the season in the final away game.

“I feel terrible after having such a bad game,” said Arveladze.

“The softness and the way we came here and played, giving so much space to others, doing everything an opponent needs to play this way.

“They’re good on reactions, they’re good at playing deep balls. Weimann is more who is connecting in the middle of the pitch, delivers and goal himself.

“If you look at what we analyse, you would say it was identical goals we receive, identical chances they get.

“We’ve been very, very slow and soft, and that’s cost us – terrible game, a terrible result and a terrible performance.”
