Pellegrini: “We don’t rest on our laurels with the result and at home we have to win again”

The fist team’s manager, Manuel Pellegrini, spoke to the media after the Copa del Rey first knockout leg between Getafe and Málaga (0-1).

Pellegrini’s statements:

“The best thing is the winning result.  It’s been a game of few goal approaches. In the second half we improved a lot with the goal and more chances.  It’s important to win and get a goal as visitors, leaving the other side goalless. They had such few occasions that Willy hardly played.”

“They’re 180 minutes and we couldn’t relax at any time.”
“We work with the players that play and those that don’t, and as such we have footballers like Juanmi and Portillo who both had a good match.”
“We’ve got to win the return match at home and not rest on our laurels with this result.  We’ve got to play as though we got zero against this good opponent, Getafe, who are a team that normally gives good ball distribution and has more approaches.”
