Working together to aim for the three points

Quique Setién underlines that it will not be easy to overcome Mallorca at the Ciutat de València (Sunday, 6:30pm CET)

Villarreal CF head coach Quique Setién underlined the importance of the three points that are up for grabs this Sunday against RCD Mallorca. For the Yellows’ manager, his team will have to be at their best at the Ciutat de València (&:30pm CET).

“Playing at home is a plus. You have more confidence and the opponents become smaller, although if you look at the league, there are no easy opponents”.

Importance of the victory

“Villarreal must always go out to win, at home or away. It’s true that it’s the last game in our little exile. The idea is to go into the break winning the two games we have left.”

Analysis of Mallorca

“We have analysed Mallorca, they are a well-organised team and have a lot of different styles of play. They are a well-organised team that will make things very difficult for us for sure. Nobody has ever beaten them easily, they have always compromised all their opponents. All their matches are very evenly matched.”

The team’s adaptation

“They have had an idea and a coach for two years, but now there is another one who is asking them for other things and now they have to change to a different idea, this is something that takes time and that we have to work on. There are many things that we do well and things that penalise us a lot, so we have to work to improve those things that penalise them. We are conditioned by time, as we are not being able to work on improving. It’s good to be calm and have confidence in what we are doing. I’d like everything to go faster, but we’ve only been here eight days. That’s why we have to be patient.”

The break for the World Cup

“I’m waiting for the break to be able to work on things on the pitch, now it’s impossible and we can’t develop what we want to. Now we’re going to play against a rival who are very clear about what their mechanisms are and what they have to do, and we have a team that is working with a series of changes that we have to adapt to.”
