Likewise, he explained that this fact means that his men will have to be patient during the game: “there will be times when We won’t have the ball and we will suffer, but we have to be patient. We will still look for the game.”
In this regard, he has analyzed that the Girona wide players get inside and leave corridors to the wings that generate numerical superiority in the center of the field, something that they have to control together with the control of the ball because with it they generate spaces and in those movements is “where the party can be”.
“Hence the patience thing, because there will be times when we don’t have the ball and we will have to know how to defend that,” he warned.

The coach from Alicante has pointed out that except for the game against Cartagena, which he considers to be a “lapse”, in the other games played lately the team cannot be blamed for anything because they have shown “attitude, honesty and that they are going for the games “.
He also believes that continuing to dream of getting closer to the top of the table passes “for the victory” against the Girona team and that later they have to “link victories”.
On Francho, Petrovic and Vada, players who are doubtful for the match, he has indicated that they are progressing quite well and that he believes that he will be able to count on them, although he prefers to wait for the remaining two training sessions before making a pronouncement.
