Diego Jabalquinto (Valencia) / Translation by Michael J. O'Donnell
Carvalho and Pepe commented on the match in Valencia against Levante.
"The red card conditioned the match. Levante's game improved and they made us suffer. We have to be more compacted to avoid suffering so much. We had many chances to score and we played well until the red card. They were lucky later on and scored."
"The ref played a key role. He punished us with fouls we didn't make. We nevertheless know football's like that. We have to continue working till the end. Referees have to do their job and they didn't tonight. Before Khedira's red card there had been a foul on Di Maria that the linesman failed to award. The referee has to be fair to both sides. We try to play good football, but sometimes we're not allowed to."
