Sergio Farias, Pohang Steelers
I’m proud of my players. We showed that we could match the South American champions, and we were extremely unlucky to lose. We had three players sent off. It could have been a different story.

Alejandro Sabella, Estudiantes coach
We’re very pleased to have reached the final. If we meet Barcelona, then so be it – we’ll be ready for them. Credit to Pohang, they did well. The last 20 minutes of the first half was very even, and so was the start of the second half. But our second goal gave us the psychological advantage and Pohang became frustrated after that. It was not our best performance but I think we deserved the victory. We’ll be better next game.
