NEWS | 23/08/2019 | Alberto Navarro | PHOTOGRAPHER: Antonio Villalba"We have to focus on reproducing what we did in Vigo and try to do even better", declared the boss.
"It's not an easy game, there are no easy games here, there are no straightforward ones. Nowadays you simply can't say that you're up against Valladolid and are going to win. In football, you've got to go out and prove it on the pitch. Valladolid have made a really good start to the LaLiga season, last time round they had a good year, they're a brave side and will come here looking to put in a good performance. It's down to us and we have to focus on reproducing what we did in Vigo and try to do even better".
"He is, has been and will always be an important player for us and the possibility isn't something I'm considering. He's here and we can't control what goes on outside of here. He wants to play, be part of things and prove that he's a good player, like the rest of him, and that's what he's working for. That's the most important thing for a coach. He's always been and always will be a top professional. There's no change to the situation. We'll have a lot of games and I'm going to play him".
"We've got tomorrow's game and you know that I'm only thinking about what we're going to do tomorrow. That's the only thing that we have to think about and nothing else. The players that I have here and those that I've got and we've got a game tomorrow and, as always, until 2 September anything can happen. That's the same at every club, players can come in and others leave. I can't wait for the 2nd to come around so that I don't get asked these questions. We're just focusing on tomorrow's game and want to put in a good performance".
