“Let’s go home, we don’t rely on ourselves anymore”


Ernesto Valverde acknowledged in the El Sadar press room the damage caused by the loss against Osasuna. “Now we retreat because the advantage lies with ourselves and now we rely on Osasuna,” he said. Now the rojillo team is seventh with two games left to finish the League. “Every game is a world. Nobody will be easy to get the six remaining points. We know what Madrid is and Elche is fine, we have to focus on ourselves”, he added about the two remaining games. “It was a decisive match, if we had managed to win by winning one of the other two we would have had it. We had chances but we didn’t hit the mark and they hit the shots they had. In the first half is that we are not in any danger and the second goal is a blow”, he stated.

The man from Gasteiz acknowledged the disappointment of this defeat. “Obviously we failed to have that option and lose it. Things we lacked. If any team scored in the first half, it was us.”

The first goal came after a mistake by Julen Agirrezabala. Txingurri did not give it much importance: “I don’t measure Julen by a specific action but by the trajectory he has. We have two good goalkeepers and nothing else. Once you make a decision like this in a three game week you have to assume it could be better or worse. When Unai makes a mistake I have to assume it and like Julen, who had an exceptional campaign”.

Regarding Rubén Peña’s hand, he pointed out that he saw it from a distance but he asked the fourth official to check it: “It was a clear chance to score. He told me there was nothing. I can’t say anything more. “

Sancet did not start due to the process of flu, Paredes had to leave the field due to calf discomfort and Vivian also had a heel problem, “but he had to endure because we no longer have central defenders”.
