Sangalli: “The objective is promotion; we’ll fight for it”

The midfielder appeared before the media at the closing of Blue and White Values, an initiative by the Foundation and La Canasta: “It’s wonderful to see how the city supports the team. It’s so important for us.”

Close of Blue and White Values

“It was a very nice experience, being able to see the children, how they have fun and how they support us, it’s also lovely and exciting how they are interested in the values ​​of sport and Málaga CF. I loved it. Everyone with the shirts, the flags... It's wonderful to see how the city supports the team. It’s so important for us".

Work calmly

“The week is going pretty well, other weeks have been busier. We are focusing on preparing for the upcoming games. The first, this weekend; and then, what is to come. We needed a calmer week after having played a great game and achieving a great result. We needed it to face what’s coming.”

Regaining sensations

“Right at the decisive moment, two weeks before the playoffs, we managed to play a very good game at home, reconcile ourselves a little with our fans and give the impression that we compete well. In addition to playing a good game, we competed well. It’s the best medicine for what is to come. We’re looking forward to facing what remains.”

The objective: promotion

“It’s comforting to know that we can play at a good level. Above all, facing the playoff, we must maintain that level to try to achieve the goal. At this point we can't go around with other stories. The objective is clear: promotion. We are going to fight as hard as possible; we’ll try to work as hard as we can for what we have left and try to compete at our best to win the playoffs and get promoted.”

Confident and happy to contribute

“Football is a state of mind. When you are not participating, when you are not playing, everything is more of an uphill struggle. You are not comfortable and you are lacking confidence. Playing again and getting a goal is very important for me. It’s given me a lot of confidence going into this week and facing what remains. I really want to contribute to the team and help achieve the goal.”

A win in Madrid to reach the playoff in the best way

“The playoff is behind everything, and in our heads, but we know that everything depends on confirming against Castilla what we did well on the day against Antequera. We all know it’s important to get the three points there. Our goal is to get 70 points, a morale boost for the playoff.”

Tough rival for Saturday

“The reserve teams depend a lot on their state of form. Real Madrid is a team that has earned few points given how well they’ve done this season. It would be naive to think that we can go there and it will be easy. It's a good test for what's to come. It's going to be a very difficult game; they have a lot of quality and we have to take advantage of the opportunities we have.”
