Recio: “The team did a great job”

Málaga Club de Fútbol’s José Luis García del Pozo ‘Recio’ and Sergio Barbosa Valente ‘Duda’ appeared in the mixed zone at La Rosaleda to analyse tonight’s 1-1 draw against Villarreal Club de Fútbol.

“We’re slightly bitter about the result as we always like to win, but the team did a great job.  It was a very complete match both in defence and in midfield, and we tried to contain Villarreal’s combinative play.  We played a good match, and if anyone deserves victory I believe it’s us.”
“We’re happy and proud of our performance in the League competition so far and the number of points we’ve achieved.  Our success is based on a lot of hard work since the very first match.  The team has been fighting to achieve its objectives despite the number of players out of action.  This is the way forward.”
“Our fans are very important to us.  We really valued their support tonight and were able to equalise.”

“Scoring a point against a difficult rival next to us in the League table is important.  We deserved a win tonight, but are satisfied with claiming a point.  We generated a number of goal chances, we worked hard and were the superior side, but unfortunately we didn’t clinch victory.”
“We’ve been following a good method of work and need to continue in order to gain more points.  The fans are always behind us and support us a great deal, and tonight was no different.”
