I raisedTOThe granota technician answers all media questions from home
Ctorment press conference remote.Paco LopezHe has answered more than a dozen questions that the different media covering information from the Granota club sent and which the coach of Silla subsequently answered on a chain. The vast majority of them have revolved around the effects of the coronavirus crisis and the many responses that exist without knowing for sure what and how it will happen.
How is a situation like this dealt with psychologically?
“It is a rare situation, which we have never experienced. The club psychologist has set daily guidelines for us and we are in permanent contact with him. Not only with the coaching staff, but with each player. We try to give him some normality, but a help as this is always important “
Recovery at the physical or mental level
“Both aspects are important. The mental is important these days. The return to work is going to be a shot of joy so important the fact that everything has already happened that it will not take motivation. In the physical aspect I know we are going to need a few days of adjustment between the end of the days of confinement and the return to work “
Are you concerned about a lack of rhythm?
“No, because we are all teams in the same situation. Now what it is about is creating a situation as if we were really competing. We have to prepare and our philosophy must be to try to be better than the other teams”
What is the time players need to get in tune?
“It is very difficult to know right now. We are still not sure how much longer we will have to be in this situation of confinement, but we are going to have to do a kind of preseason in less time, with fewer days. But it is difficult to specify further”
How is the contact with the players?
“The individualized monitoring of the player is the same as before, but using new technologies. It is a different situation, but fortunately we have so much new technology that it does not affect too much”
How is Paco López’s routine in confinement?
“I have a very tight schedule. With routines to maintain some habits. The rest of the technical staff tasks are practically the same.”
“I have no idea what steps will be taken when the competition resumes. My job is to get the team back in the best shape possible. And on other issues, always agree with what my club says.”
If confinement is lengthened, what is your opinion on how the season should close?
“I have no idea how it will end and the decisions they will make. Our mission is to think about how to put the footballers in the best possible tone for when the competition returns. When we have news of when this can end, give my opinion. Right now, it is making tabs. We are focused on being ready for when the competition returns. “
Do you think players and coaches should give up the proportional part of their contracts in case the season is incomplete?
“Right now we are working on the hypothesis that everything is going to be all right and that we will finish LaLiga. That is our main motivation, otherwise we would not be working with the illusion and interest with which we are doing it.”
In case the season extends beyond June 30, how do you think you should deal with the contracts that end?
“I understand that it is a global problem, that there are several clubs with players whose contracts end on June 30 and that the most normal thing is that they remain in their clubs until the end of LaLiga.”
Does it seem extraordinary to you that, in the current scenario, Morales rejects a juicy salary to go to China mid-season?
“I think that when a player identifies with a club as much as Morales has, with Levante and with the city of Valencia … Money is not a decisive factor. Other things weigh more on Morales. He is very happy It is a symbol of Levante and we are very happy to have you here.
