Analysis of the draw

“There were moments of good football, the team felt comfortable. In the first half, in set pieces and second plays, they had options. However, I believe we were more comfortable. We had the match under control and the goal stemmed from a sporadic action. When they equalised, we lacked a level of calm, but I remain with the team’s good moments. In regard to my expulsion, I never talk about refereeing matters”.

Does the point not feel like much?

“On the one hand, yes, but if you look at the last action, we could have left with nothing. We only focus on the short-term, the result, but I’ve seen many positives. I have a feeling of security and confidence. Had we have won all three points you could say we played one of our most complete matches, but we must also congratulate Ponferradina for their match”.

Arbitration

“The issue of arbitration has nothing to do with the result. During the match our pulses were at 180, and we just wanted to convey the annoyance that we were feeling, yet with the utmost respect. It’s a tremendously difficult job. We’re all human and we can all make mistakes”.

Second plays

“We need to be more forceful in these actions, the second plays, which would allow the team to breathe more. The game could have escaped us due to a play like this, as otherwise it was under control and the team played very well at times”.

Names

“We made some changes, also in goal. We want the players to keep participating. It was a very serious game. With Yanis and Jairo, along with Pablo, we were practically playing with three forwards. Superiority determines the result and we needed to be more aggressive in the finishing zone. In any isolated play you can concede a goal. Every team competes at the highest level. However, today we took a step forward, particularly in terms of the circulation of the ball”.

Last pass

“We lacked that last pass, but I think we saw another match. We were more comfortable than the rival, yet we must congratulate Ponferradina too. I’m pleased with the players’ performance”.
