Bruno Guimaraes shares what really disappointed him after Newcastle defeat last night

Following Newcastle United’s stale performance against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night, Bruno Guimaraes has conceded that there is a sense of disappointment in the city.

Guimaraes shared his thoughts on how the team should and could have performed better that evening.

Newcastle had five shots on goal, but they rarely looked like they could catch goalkeeper Gregor Kobel off guard and never really threatened.

After the game, manager Eddie Howe and the players both expressed disappointment at the team’s lack of success and felt that they didn’t quite do enough.

Bruno Guimaraes admits Newcastle have to play better

With twelve injuries and playing every three or four days, it is understandable that the Magpies were not at their best against the Bundesliga team.

Nevertheless, despite having a severely limited roster, Eddie Howe’s team has recently displayed some outstanding performances against Manchester United and Arsenal.

Bruno is adamant that the team perform better in the second half of the Champions League match, saying that it appears to have been one game too many.

Following the loss, the Brazilian talked with Sky Sports about how he felt about the team’s performance: “I’m very disappointed; the first goal was challenging.”

“I think the second half we had the chance to score, we didn’t and after we took another goal.

“Bad day in the office, so disappointed, I think we should play much better in the second half.”

Newcastle struggling to cope with injuries

Eddie Howe and his team will take no comfort in the fact that Newcastle traveled to Dortmund with 12 players short of full strength.

Even though they have a formidable starting lineup, the team is beginning to lose games. Given Howe’s style of play in particular, it will be difficult to maintain their current level of performance.

It seems hard to escape more performances of this kind with big games like the final two Champions League games scheduled for the next few weeks.

The team’s recent injuries, including those to Dan Burn and Jacob Murphy, are also concerningly long-term.
As we saw last night with several youth players included, Howe may have to rely on some inexperienced talent to get through the busy Christmas period.
