Sergio reinforces optimism for the visit of Eibar

The coach reaffirms the positive feelings to issues such as lack of goal or home wins.


Sergio González does not want negative thoughts. The coach of Real Valladolid prefers to reinforce in his message the positive feelings that his team is generating over issues such as lack of goal or home wins. "We want people to come to the stadium prepared for a difficult game, to reset and think we want to make a great game and win," he confirmed.

Eibar will not be an easy opponent, as he recalled. Visit Zorrilla, where the blanquivioletas have not yet won, although the coach said that they have made good matches and that, in his opinion, he has scored fewer points than he should. Therefore, in the locker room there is "great desire to claim", because they understand that they have "a debt to the fans", which is even generating some anxiety.

Before the lack of a goal, Sergio issued a speech along the same lines: he prefers to "relativize" and assess that goal chances are being generated, even if the goal-to-door success is not the best. "I really want the strikers to claim, because they have potential and wicker for it. It's a matter of time, although we need their goals," he said.

He placed special emphasis on the concern for Guardiola, since he is seeing "less fine". "It started very well and plugged them in, maybe now the relationship with the ball is a little worse. We have to recover its best version in the shot, but also in the relationship with the teammates," Sergio analyzed.

In any case, he recalled that the attack is everyone's business, "not only the fault of the strikers", and that it depends on how they combine to generate the "four or five occasions" that the blanquivioletas usually provoke per game: "We are having them, but the effectiveness has to be very high, because we do not generate 10 or 12 scoring chances. We have to find a balance between defensive work and that the strikers reach the area with air to score. "

San Emeterio and Alcaraz, not yet

Against Eibar there will still be Fede San Emeterio and Rubén Alcaraz. The recovery of the first is "a little slower" than that of the second, who is expected in the call of the match in Barcelona. Thus, Joaquin will remain in the center of the field, trying to demonstrate the "very high" level he has been offering. "He is a survivor and a professional like a pine tree. We are going to enjoy him," Sergio invited.

Against Eibar the participation of the Andalusian will be important, since it demands a lot in the lateral centers. Looking ahead to that match, the Blanquivioleta coach expects "some surprise from Mendilibar" and similarities with the last match in San Mamés, although with "nuances", since, as he warned, "it is the team that steals the most balls in the opposite field" .

Sergio González's idea for Saturday is to seek "balance without the ball and freedom with him" to try to harm the Basque team. The fact that "in two or three passes are planted in your area" invites you to be cautious in defense, although there are also options to generate danger, such as on the back of their sides.


Renewal of the coach is still standing, "frozen for three weeks", although Sergio González is still optimistic about the deal. "I guess it will happen shortly," he said when asked about it after positively assessing his 100 games as coach in First, completed in San Mamés.
