Comesaña has spoken about the upcoming match against Rayo Vallecano (Sunday, 6:30pm CEST) and his good moment in the team

Villarreal CF player, Santi Comesaña, appeared before the media in the press room of the José Manuel Llaneza Training Ground to talk about the Submarine’s upcoming match against Rayo Vallecano, the Galician midfielder’s former team, this Sunday at 6:30pm CEST

In his opening remarks, Comesaña assured that the team will be aiming to make the most of their European chances in the last six games: “We don’t crunch the numbers, but we’re taking it game by game. We know it’s not close, but it’s not far away either and obviously we’re going to try.”

The match against Vallecano will be the first stop in the final sprint of the season that Villarreal have ahead of them, with Europe as an ambitious objective. “We mustn’t drop too many points if we want to reach Europe. In all our remaining games we have to go for the three points if we want to play in European competition”, explains the Yellows No.4.

This Sunday’s game will be very special for Santi Comesaña who, before joining Villarreal, spent seven seasons with Rayo Vallecano. “It’s always special to play against Rayo. They have another objective that hopefully they will achieve, but we have our own and we have to go for it,” said Comesaña.

Having played 219 games for Rayo, Comesaña knows exactly what the team coached by Íñigo Pérez is capable of. Therefore, about Rayo Vallecano, he warns: “It’s a team that has changed a lot of players compared to last season. They’ve changed their spine and, although they’re not doing so well this year, I don’t think they’re suffering too much. They are a team that are difficult to score against and they won’t make things easy for us”.

Asked about his current form in the team, Comesaña said: “I feel very good. It took me a while to get into the team due to a series of circumstances: I’d been at the same club for seven years, the changes of head coaches… but now I do feel much more comfortable than I did when I arrived. Hopefully I can continue in the same way.”

Finally, he appealed to the fans to turn La Cerámica into a fortress for the last few games of the campaign: “The strength and support of the fans will be very important in the last few games we play at home.”
