Tribe will defeat after penalty shoot-out with Reading ‘difficult to accept’

Jaap Stam frustrated so firmly that he, with Reading promotion to the Premier League is lost, but he is also proud of his players.

Reading lost Monday afternoon in the final of the play-offs after a penalty shoot-out of Huddersfield Town, after 120 minutes of play the brilstand still on the scoreboard.

“You want the season well shut down. It was a beautiful season, but a final you need to win”, lamented Tribe for the camera of the BBC.

Reading missed in the decisive penaltyserie a 3-1 lead, which the club could not only whistle to play at the highest level in England, but also to some 200 million euro.

Tribe, however, refused with an accusing finger to point. “It is difficult to accept that you via penalty shoot-out lose. I, as a player, also experienced. It was the icing on the cake if we had won, but no one here is guilty of. I am extremely proud of the team, on what the boys have achieved and how hard they have worked. They deserved it really to be up here.”

That Reading at Wembley no high eyes could throw, had, according to Tribe, nothing to do with pressure. “If you have such a contest don’t want to play, you need for amateurs to go play football.”

“You can’t fight your players say that they should play like they do in the competition, because the atmosphere is different. Hopefully we will go the next season to do well, but I want to be honest yet not think about it. We must first get over this.”
