‘It was a complete defeat’ – Kaoru Mitoma gives honest reflection on his duel with Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Speaking after his side’s FA Cup defeat, he said: “I regret that I didn’t score a goal despite having a few chances to do so.”And it’s difficult to score penalties, so I think I could have done something more before that.”

Mitoma added: “I hadn’t played against them [Manchester United] before but all of their players are of high quality individually, so we had to be careful on the counter-attacks.”I think the match as a whole went well but they had quality at the end.

“I also need to improve. He [Wan-Bissaka] is a strong opponent, that’s what I thought while I was playing.”There were a lot of occasions where his legs stretched at the end, or he got the ball down at the back. I think it was a complete defeat.”
