Edinson Cavani tells reporters to “ask the coach” for reasons behind Uruguay loss

Speaking after Uruguay’s loss to Portugal in Group H, Valencia and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, frustrated by the 2-0 defeat, pointedly told reporters to speak to the coach about why his team were beaten. Cavani said:

“Ask Alonso [Diego, Uruguay coach] he’s the right person to talk about these more tactical aspects. It’s football, sometimes things work out, sometimes they don’t. He’s preparing for the next game… Defeat leaves a bitter taste, we know that we have great potential to produce more. It’s always hard to lose points in a World Cup, it’s always complicated, but we have to recover, correct what needs to be corrected and play the last game like a final. We have an opportunity to take the next step.”

Uruguay now must beat Ghana in their last group game to stand any chance of making the last 16 in Qatar.
