Manager reaction as City and Albion draw

Last updated : 16 March 2023 By Michael Morris

Cardiff's Sabri Lamouchi:


"To be honest I would have settled before the game for a point. Even though we played so well in the second half we came back for the first time, the first draw for me here. It's an important point for us, especially against a good team. They are playing for a different target, probably the play-off, but we never gave up and that is a positive.

"He [Kaba] is doing well, he's scoring important goals for us and he's doing his job. The plan I wanted was to disturb West Brom, but they changed the system. We didn't do well in the first half, that's why I changed in the break."

West Brom's Carlos Corberan:

"I can tell you I am positive (about the play-offs) because of the dressing room I walked into after the game. The players have a very uncomfortable feeling with the points we dropped because they want more. In football in the last part of the season determination is the key. The next time the players put the West Bromwich shirt on we must have this feeling that we did not get the three points. I want them to remember that feeling. The next nine games we need to play and compete as if it was nine finals.

"I like to make the valuation of the season at the end. We know where we arrived from and what the situation was, but at the same time I know West Bromwich and how big this club is and how ambitious we need to be. We are going to try and win every single one because that has to be the commitment. But it feels like we did not achieve the target we had here."
