Sabri post-WBA | An important point

Cardiff City boss Sabri Lamouchi spoke to the press after the Bluebirds’ well-earned 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion.

“It’s a first draw for us with me,” started Sabri. “In the second half I liked the attitude and performance. We tried to come back at the beginning of the second half. Of course, we missed too much against a good team but one more lovely goal from [Sory] Kaba and we’re back in the game.

“I’m happy with the performance and I’m happy with the attitude. It’s an important point for us against a good team, they are playing for a different target but as you know we changed many things but as you can see, we never give up, and that is really positive.”

Striker Sory Kaba came off the bench in the second half and his substitution paid off after he headed home on 65 minutes. Sabri was full of praise for the Bluebirds front man who has netted three goals since his January arrival.

“He is right to dream [about playing his football in the UK] and he is doing absolutely everything to make that dream come true,” he added. “He scored a very important goal for us so he is doing his job.”

With the Bluebirds taking on Rotherham United this weekend ahead of the upcoming international break, Sabri was quick to state the importance of the clash and the other eight remaining games of the season.

“All of the games are important,” continued Sabri. “All nine games are really important, it’s nine cup finals so the point tonight is important and Saturday before the international break will be a really important as well.”
