Zilina boss Hapel not perturbed by loss to Chelsea

MSK Zilina coach Pavel Hapel admitted he was not too perturbed by the 4-1 opening day Champions League loss to English champions Chelsea.

The Czech tactician's Slovakian outfit managed to pull one goal back on the Blues in the 55th minute through Tomas Oravec after they had cruised to a four-goal lead and the way they finished pleased Hapel.

"I am not disappointed with tonight's game," said Hapel. "We played well and attacked Chelsea. We managed to score so it was okay.

"We kept up with Chelsea as much as we could but I am disappointed with the productivity. The score was a surprise tonight.

"We didn't show the same productivity in front of goal as Chelsea did."
