After the derby at Poljud, head coach Igor Tudor held a press conference and said:
"You can never be satisfied when you lose at home, however I have to congratulate my players for giving their best. In the first half we had a few chances from which we could have scored for a lead but then Ismajli was sent off and it decided the match. We tried our best in the second half, we evwn played with two forwards but Dinamo was better today and we are now starting our preparation for the Sunday's game with Rijeka. We all love football because the beter team can always lose. The result is the most important but the impression is also what matters. It's not the same when you lose without idea and with idea. I'm convinced that this team has potential for many good things. We will finish this seaon in the best possible way and wherever we want to be, we will end up at that position. And we will get another chance to meet them in Split this time next year, so we will see then".
