Escribá: “We have to value this point”

The Villarreal CF Manager was satisfied with his team’s performance despite the last minute equalizer

Villarreal CF Manager, Fran Escribá, was very happy with his players after their performance against FC Barcelona, although said it was a shame that the win was taken away from them in the final minutes: “We have to value this point. I am very proud of my players and this gives us a lot of confidence ahead of Wednesday’s match against Real Sociedad. We had some good counterattacks and I’m very satisfied with the team”.

The Yellows Manager knows how difficult it is to play against one of the best teams in the world and says that the Submarine’s effort must be recognized: “Barcelona’s good performance just adds merit to my players’ performance. Sometimes we don’t realize the level of the opponents we play against. Villarreal competes well. The level of our squad is really high and this shows when we play against rivals like those today”.

To finish, the Submarine Manager talked about this historic day for Yellows fans in terms of the change of stadium name. The lights, the cameras and the thousands of fans witnessed the presentation of the ‘Estadio de la Cerámica’: “The video is very exciting. We wanted to contribute to the celebrations by getting the win against Barcelona on this historic day for the club and the town. We wanted to be the stars of the show on this beautiful day”.
