Defeat 'hard to take' for Davies

Published: Wednesday 12 May 2010, 23.45CET
Fulham FC goalscorer Simon Davies said losing 2-1 after extra time to Club Atlético de Madrid in the UEFA Europa League final is "very hard to take", but took solace from the achievement of reaching the showpiece. "Once we get home I'm sure we'll feel like we've achieved something this year but at this moment in time it's very hard to take," said the winger, who cancelled out Diego Forlán's opener in the first half. "There were chances when we played good football and caused them some problems. We came so close and it's very hard to take but congratulations to Atlético."
