The head coach predicts a hard-fought match against Girona FC this Saturday at 2pm CEST at Montilivi

Villarreal CF head coach, Quique Setién, has appeared before the media at the press conference prior to the match against Girona FC, which will take place tomorrow, Saturday, at 2pm CEST, at the Montilivi Stadium.

He predicts a hard-fought match against a team with a good dynamic in recent league games. These are the most important statements made by the head coach:

Aiming to secure possible European qualification

“There is less and less of the league season left and the matches are becoming more and more decisive. For all teams aiming to achieve a certain objective, as we are, it is very decisive. The reality is that we have come into this final stage of the season well and, apart from a few small incidents, we are in good shape and with every guarantee of facing a match that is going to be very difficult.”

The opposition: Girona FC

“Girona FC is a great opponent. It’s a team that I like a lot because of the work their head coach is doing. I think they have an extraordinary team with players who may not be well-known, but who play at a very high level. I think that they can keep you on your toes permanently. I think they are a very dynamic team and it’s difficult to compete with them.”

Two teams in good form

“In our case, we now have more continuity and we have managed to reach a good level. However, it’s not always easy to maintain it, because there are many circumstances that have an influence. We are at a point where both we and Girona FC are a switched on, which means that the players are at a very high level of performance. We’re going to have an extraordinary match. We’re not going to speculate, we’re going to press and, as a result, we’re going to create space. So it’s going to be a very entertaining game, and we’re going to go and win it, because that would allow us to continue in the fight we have to try to get as high up the table as possible.”
