Jesé excites

The yellow striker saw the door against Lugo and made a great personal performance in the team's win.


A penalty, provoked by himself, had to be the appointed day for "El Bichito" to smile again 522 days after the drought. That was the time that Jesé Rodríguez had not scored, since he did it in official competition in 2019 with Sporting Lisbon, until yesterday that thorn was removed against Lugo after perfectly executing a maximum penalty. In addition, he gave an assist and offered a recital of combinations. A superb night for the one from Lomo Blanco.

Jesé is back, as the last one against Lugo demonstrated. You win, fight, intensity and goal, finally. After six previous games in which he had not seen the door, this time the Gran Canaria winger wanted to be the protagonist and did not hesitate for a single moment in assuming responsibility when executing a penalty marked in the 15th minute that had been caused by him same. Álvaro Lemos, the person in charge of these actions in Las Palmas, allowed the former PSG striker to face the penalty spot and retaliate at once from his hunger for the goal. As Jesé himself said at the end of the game: "In the end, I think that all of us at the top are capable of taking penalties. When Lemos asked me the other day I let him. The important thing is to be teammates and put them in. I saw myself with confidence. I am happy for the goal, but I am happier for the three points because the team deserves it ".

And there is illusion in Jesé that this goal is only the beginning and that this win does not mean anything if Mallorca is not beaten on Sunday, since "any game is important. All the rivals make it difficult in Second Division. You have to enjoy victory, but prepare for Sunday's game to make it good ".

His coach Pepe Mel also had words of praise for his figure at the end of the match, who commented that, even if he had not scored "for me, it is important. I would have given the same if he did not score because he played a good game and was generous. In the six goals, he is in the play. He creates and the opponent tends to go backwards when he touches the ball. He does a lot more than scoring a goal or not. I don't care if he doesn't score. If he doesn't score and Rober scores three, bless him. Jesé does many more things than the goal. He is the first who has said that this is worth nothing because you have to beat Mallorca. Well, very well ".

Now, six points behind the promotion, although Rayo Vallecano has one game less, the UD faces the game against Mallorca with the illusion of hitting the table and thinking that there are options to fight for the playoff.
