Quique Setién congratulated his team for not losing hope and fighting for the win until the end

Villarreal CF coach, Quique Setién, appeared at a press conference after Villarreal’s 1-0 win over Girona. Setién was satisfied with his team’s performance. These were his most important statements after the victory:

Match assessment

“We played a fantastic game against a great opponent and we were able to minimise them. They had gone seven games without defeat. They’re a team who put a lot of pressure on you and if you don’t press them well, they put you in serious trouble. I’m happy with the work we did because we managed to play in the opposition’s half for most of the game and we were patient enough to manage the ball from the back. The victory came at the last minute, but we had already deserved to take the win earlier.”

The debuts of Fall and Collado

“They have played a very important role. I’m happy with the work they’ve both done.”

Belief until the the end

“We had our opponents practically in their own box and perhaps we lacked precision in that last area, but the effort of the lads was extraordinary. They are good players with a great capacity for work.”

Champions League places

“I don’t normally look at the table. I look at my team, I want them to keep doing what they are doing and I want us to keep improving in terms of performances. It’s true that we have the potential to be at the top if we continue at this level, but sometimes even the most insignificant details can help you or condemn you. It’s risky to speculate when there’s so much left to do.”
