New Killie boss Alessio watched on in horror as the Ayrshire club saw their 2-1 first-leg advantage overturned at Rugby Park on Thursday night by the Welsh part-timers.
Both teams had a player sent off and after the full-time whistle, the Italian coach fronted-up and spoke to the media, and he couldn’t resist sticking the boot into their muscular way of playing football.
Speaking to BBC Radio Scotland, via Football Scotland, Alessio said: “In the first half we had three opportunities to score a goal, whereas in the second half the game was no good for us because we tried to find a solution but conceded two goals.
“I don’t know if they were offside or not for the penalty. We spent 10 minutes looking for the solution, but we were tired.”
“Today we conceded two goals but at the same time in the first half we had three opportunities to score.”
“Every action was a foul. I think it was a yellow card or a red card. Unbelievable, unbelievable.
“This team committed a lot of fouls, and this is their strength.”
The 3-2 aggregate defeat knocks Kilmarnock out of their first European campaign since 2001, and means they’ll miss out on a glamour tie against Partizan Belgrade in the second qualifying round.
But what do you think of the pretty remarkable result, and Alessio’s comments afterwards?
Is he already under pressure this early into his reign as Killie boss?
