Málaga CF’s Ignacio Camacho, who scored twice today, and goalkeeper Willy Caballero, who saved an important penalty, held a press conference in La Rosaleda’s mixed zone following today’s game.
Having scored five goals so far this season, Camacho sees today’s victory against Granada CF as a very positive one: “At this point in the competition, the most important thing is winning matches, regardless of who scores goals. I’m pleased I’ve been getting goals recently, even though I’ve always said it’s not really my main function on the pitch. However, every footballer wants to score, particularly in a winning match. I’m happy with the team’s hard work to achieve such a good result, we gave it everything we’ve got. We’re all ecstatic and looking forward to keeping up a strong performance.”
The ‘Malaguista’ keeper saved a crucial Granada CF penalty just before half-time: “I thank God that I saved that penalty, as I think it made a considerable difference to team morale. Saving a penalty is always important, but more so today, as it allowed us to maintain a good lead.” Willy Caballero knows there’s still a lot of work to do: “Our main focus now is to concentrate on each game at a time, and earn as many points as we can in order to stay in the First Division. We’ve been playing much better football in away games recently and bringing home good results, but we needed to secure a home win today. I think if we continue along the same lines, and perform to this level in each match, we’ll earn the points we need. The team needs to maintain a strong sense of ambition to make sure we continue winning matches and end the season as high up the League table as we can.”
