Palmeiras coach Abel Ferreira says he’s proud of his players after their Club World Cup final defeat to Chelsea.
Palmeiras took the game to extra time before losing 2-1.
Abel later said, “We knew it would be a difficult game. You don’t like the three centre-backs, but look at how Chelsea play. I don’t want to talk about the result, we lost, and I want to congratulate those who won. Last year, we went where we went, and this year we came in second. We lost to a great team, in a game of details, so I’m very proud of my players.
“We were able to match their individual quality, attack the opponent, equaling with the collective game. But the game was decided on one detail. So, congratulations to my players. I am a proud man to be their coach. Let’s thank our fans for everything they’ve done. It is to congratulate the opponent and move on.”
