AthleticTOThe Athletic coach has analyzed the match against Rayo Vallecano
Gaizka Garitanohe is aware of where the team is coming from and how his situation has changed. Therefore, admits that entering European competition will be a feat for Athletic. In addition, he does not want to think long term and considers that Rayo is a dangerous team that does not suffer in terms of morale even if they come tight by the classification.
How he lives before the clash on Sunday:"With hope, whenever a game is approaching, you are eager to play it, knowing that each time there is less, that we are close to the top positions and that we are going to play at home again where we feel very strong. We continue in this line of approaching each time to the posts above and a victory at home will mean a little more. "
Do not want to look long term:"I look at tomorrow's game, it's the closest goal we have, the one we can win and where we play three points that will bring us closer to the positions above, in that aspect, try to win tomorrow to get closer."
They only think about arriving in Europe:"We do not think about that, every game in which you wear the Athletic jersey is very important, right now we are thinking of winning tomorrow, of remaining connected to those positions that give us the right to be in European competitions. we know that we come from relegation places and that forces you to continue, if you have had it, with a magnificent streak and to be practically impregnable in many days, we will see if we can achieve it. still. "
Do not rely on Rayo's place in the table: "That mistake is not going to happen on the part of the team." When we took the team, Rayo had more points than us or similar, in the end it is a team like all, of First Division, a good team with very good players and here there is no easy match for anyone, and less for us, we already know the difficult game that awaits us ".
About the Ray:"In the end it becomes dangerous for the players it has, good technically, it is clear that all teams have our good things and our bad things, we have to try to take advantage of what they do not have good and be careful with how good they are. little in the dynamics of all the parties, it is true that each team is different and more I believe in making a good match ourselves, looking more at us ".
The losses on the right and the kids of the subsidiary:"Right now Ibai is injured and Ander is also injured, on the right side we have a lack of people, they do not come in the squad, but we know them well and anyone can enter."
On the danger of Rayo coming downhill: "I think no, we are all dangerous, the teams that are playing permanency know that they will give everything and that they will be at the maximum concentration. we never fail, to date we have been very good at that and that is not going to be missing, but that is not all, then we have to make a good game and try to play well to beat Rayo. "
The Lightning does not morally accuse anything during the game: "I do not believe in any team today is morally prepared, more the Lightning, in the same way you can start winning and losing or start losing and winning. little and the reverse can also happen, now when there are only a few matches, the margin of error no longer exists for each one to achieve its objectives, the one that loses a match is not because morally it is not right ".
