XISCO MUÑOZ: “WE NEED A STRONG START TO THE GAME TOMORROW”
“We face a great team, with a good manager and a stunning squad. That’s why we need a strong start to the game and to make trouble since the very beginning,” stated the Azulgranas boss
After the win over Real Valladolid, the Azulgranas depart for Gijon to play against Real Sporting, eager to claim all three points again and to move on “as a team.”“It’s a vital game for us to keep on growing and improving not only our capabilities but also our performance and ambition,” said the manager in the pre-match press conference.
Although the rival have recently gone through a poor run, Xisco knows that it means nothing for our encounter. “It’s the competition – there's all these dynamics, we’ve also experienced it. They’re a huge team and we’re going to El Molinón, one of the best stadiums in this second tier, where the atmosphere is always electric,” he added.
The Majorcan is delighted with the work rate shown by his players and he believes that they are on the right path. “Sometimes you don’t see that football, but it is actually there. We have to be dynamic in attack as well as in defence. The team are growing, but this is not enough, as we need to give more and get better. The boys are working really hard to make it happen, so it’s time to continue growing together, getting better and better with each game and put the best version of ourselves out.”
Also, he showed himself proud of the effort of the team, aware of the fact that they are going to grow. “Last day the boys grasped the clash and the philosophy. This week we have some other ideas, the team in front of us are absolutely fantastic despite their winless streak, which means nothing in this competition. They work hard, have a good manager and a stunning squad. That’s why we need a strong start to the game and to make trouble since the very beginning,” Xisco pointed out.
In order to succeed, he is committed to “continuing to go hand in hand.” “We all must be strong, play with the same style, stay together and fight for the victory. That’s how we’ll be able to win,” he concluded.
