While analyzing his team's performance, Bilic pointed out specific mistakes made by Al-Fateh players, stating, "I talked to the players about the areas that need improvement, and the way we conceded the first goal was completely unacceptable."
Regarding the second goal, Bilic highlighted the unusual manner in which the penalty was awarded, expressing, "I have never witnessed a penalty being given in this way in my entire career."
