Guangzhou Evergrande boss Cannavaro admits that his team needs more confidence.
3-1 defeat against
said that they don’t have confidence but he admits it is his job to give his team the confidence they need.
The result is bad. We tried but I know that something in my team is not clear,"
"I don't know if they're afraid to play or they're not confident anymore, but this is my job.
"I need to try to do my best to give them the confidence to play, because I know they're very good players, and we can do much, much, much better than we are."
"(The thing we need to fix is) the confidence of my players, because I know they're much better than this. I've had three years now with them and I know they can play better football than this. In this kind of moment, we need to use the things we know.
"During the game I spoke with my staff, and I said that something is completely different (with our team)."
"They make you run a lot," said the 2006 FIFA World Cup winner. "They like to control, but we know that.
"We gave them some difficulties in the first half, but the problem was when we lost the ball, because we lost the ball so quickly. We need to be more focused on doing the right things and making the right choices, because its football. If you don't do the right things, and you lose the ball every three touches, it's going to be difficult.
"The beginning of the second half was much better. We were more confident, and we did nice things, but not enough."
Now Cannavaro will face more difficulties than before and they have to face Vissel Kobe again tomorrow.
