The coach of Levante, Paco López, said he is aware of the difficulty of repeating this Saturday at the Santiago Bernabéu the triumph of a year ago, because “scoring or winning in that field is something that occurs rarely” between the teams of the profile of the levantinista. The match between Real Madrid-Levante is played on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at Movistar La Liga.
Despite this, he added that his team "will fight" and will have chances. “Every season is different, but Real Madrid is still a very powerful team. We have to strengthen our strengths and we are prepared for it, ”said Paco López at the press conference following the team's training.
“Let's go wherever we go, we are excited. On Saturday we will have a very talented team ahead of us, but I think we will have our options, although we are aware of the difficulty, ”he said.
He also said that it would be normal for Real Madrid to have the ball and create chances, but that Levante should take advantage of the few available.
Paco López, who took advantage of the public appearance to congratulate all Levantinists for the recent 110th anniversary of the founding of the club, said that “it would be a good gift to be able to give the joy of scoring or winning” at the Santiago Bernabéu.
The Valencian coach ruled that Montenegrin Nikola Vukcevic has suffered a significant injury with his team, but confessed that they must "assess the physical effort and fatigue" of the player, so he did not confirm his contest in the match.
Paco López did not want to reveal the system he will use against Real Madrid after having tried several in the first three days of the championship. "We hope to make a good game regardless of the system," he said.
Asked about the crisis in Valencia after the dismissal of Marcelino García Toral, he encouraged the former coach of Valencia.
“I cannot enter to value something when I only know that a colleague has been dismissed. When that happens we feel bad, but I want to give strength and encouragement to Marcellin, although on the other hand, I already have enough with mine, ”he concluded. AND
