NEWS | 21/08/2016 | Javier García (San Sebastián) | PHOTOGRAPHER: Ángel Martínez“Seeing your team give hardly any chances away and keeping a clean sheet is the most pleasing thing for a coach”, he added.
“I try to show that all of the players are key and if we achieve something important then it is teamwork that will allow us to achieve it. Picking my team can be a headache because they are all quality players. What pleases me is that they are all doing extremely well. We fight for every ball and every play. Seeing your team give hardly any chances away and keeping a clean sheet is the most pleasing thing for a coach".
“I am pleased with the work he did and his goal. I was very satisfied with his game. For me however the most important aspect is the team, not simply Marco or Mateo. Everyone played well but it is more a case of the team. We created a lot of chances and gave very few away. We kept a clean sheet".
“Asensio is working hard, he has quality and talent. He is very good with the ball and positions himself well. His goal was impressive and he lost his marker well”.
“I am happy for him. He still has some catching up to do physically but that didn’t show today. We started in the best way possible, scoring a goal quickly, which made things easy for us. It is a tough ground to come to and if you don´t take your chances things can get complicated. We scored three without conceding. I don´t like to speak specifically about one player but when Gareth scores twice… It is an important year for him and he has shown that".
Order of the substitutions
“All of the players are important to me. Something different may happen in the next game. What matters to me i what I see over the course of the week. All of the players are going to feature and play important roles”.
“He is doing well, he is focussed, working hard and today we were able to get three points”.
