NEWS | 09/12/2018 | Javier García“Bale's goal and the team's general character were crucial in taking all three points”, added the coach.
“Sometimes this is the way games go and there's nothing you can do to change it. But you have to know how to win them. We were in front, Huesca really put us under pressure in the second half, with the wind behind them, and we managed to defend our goal until the final whistle. We struggled to increase our advantage and suffered a bit with the game played mostly in our half of the pitch”.
"He and the rest of the team were all fantastic. He scored a great goal and it was enough to get the win. His goal and the general character of the team were crucial in taking all three points".
"We’re not that suited to this type of match, but we got the three points and there will be other matches in which we can play well, like in the first half against Valencia. I must pay special credit to the character because in these games, with the wind and on a small pitch, you have to know how to play and how to win".
"The most important factor is the opposition. They were brave, took risks and pressed high. They kept pushing until the end thanks to corners, throw-ins and the support of the fans".
An evenly matched LaLiga
"I like a keenly fought LaLiga, where anything can happen. That's great for the fans and it's a long time since it's been like this".
