Kiko Femenía has launched a message of unity in the team and has asked for maximum support from the fans

Kiko Femenía has been in the spotlight this Wednesday, taking part in a press conference in which he analysed the team’s current situation, as well as his personal feelings after starting against Deportivo Alavés.

“In the end it’s all about results and streaks. We would like to be in a different situation, but this is the one we have to face. It’s time to be more united than ever, to go for the win and change the image and the team’s feelings”, said Kiko Femenía in his first statement.

Despite the recent results, the defender from Alicante is keeping the pressure off and focusing on the team’s desire to turn the situation around: “I don’t think we’re under any pressure, nor is it a good thing to be under pressure. On the contrary, we have the objective of changing the situation. We have experienced players and we need the support of the fans; we all need to be united. It’s up to us to change the dynamic.”

For Kiko, the best chance to improve the situation is to win against Granada, the Submarine’s main objective at the moment: “I don’t look at long-term objectives. At least I don’t like to. I focus on the feelings we have each game. Our objective now is to go to Granada and get the three points. We have to improve things, but above all the most important thing is to get the win”.

In the same vein, the Yellows No.17 has launched a message of calm and confidence in the group: “It is not a situation in which we like to be, but it is not dramatic. If we win two games in a row, we’ll be talking about something else. We are going to improve. We are calm because we know that we are going to change the situation through daily work.”

On a personal level, Kiko assured that he works every day to earn his minutes in Pacheta’s team: “I try to work every day to give my best performances to the team. The head coach decides, although we all like to play. It’s not the situation I would like. We have to change the situation, facing it and improving every day. We have to be more united than ever and the people have to be with us.”

Finally, regarding Granada, Femenía warned of the difficulty of the match: “They are an opponent with fast players and it’s a very tough stadium. We know that, but we have to look at ourselves. We have to be good defensively and do things with the ball. We’re a good team, but every game is difficult and even more so away from home. We have to be mentally prepared and physically well prepared to face the games.”
