Soldier does not throw in the towel: "We will go to Manchester with enthusiasm"

The 0-2 harvested in Los Cármenes leaves the tie more than complicated, but the '9' does not give up: “We are going to do everything possible to come back. No one is going to take this dream away from us ”.


There is no one who comes down from the cloud to Granada. Not even the 0-2 against Manchester United in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Europa League. The tie, obviously, has been very uphill. But the rojiblanco dressing room retains the illusion and the desire to enjoy this wonderful European experience until the last second. Soldier, one of the Nasrid leaders, makes it clear that they are not going to throw in the towel under any circumstances. “When we were kids watching Manchester United we all wanted to play against them and next week we are going to Old Trafford, which is one of the best courses in the world. Going with Granada after everything we have achieved is a source of pride. We will go with the utmost enthusiasm ", said the striker in the Movistar + microphones.

Diego Martínez's team resists waking up from the dream they are living in their continental premiere. “We are going to do everything possible to overcome it, but we have to be realistic. It has been very difficult for us. Now to continue dreaming, to continue enjoying. We are realistic, we know the team we are going to face, but we are Granada and no one is going to take this dream away from us, not even this result. You have to enjoy it to the fullest and encourage the people of Granada. We are leaving full of energy, we have given everything and we must continue in this line and enjoy what we have left in whatever way, "added Soldado.

The 0-2 was too harsh a punishment for the good work done by Granada, especially at the defensive level. “I am very proud of my teammates. We enjoyed it to the fullest, the team competed until the end, we had chances to draw, many arrivals and set pieces. We lacked that bit of luck. We knew they had a very good pass looking for Rashford on the back. It was something to avoid and the first thing they have had they have given us the opportunity. I don't think I remember another clear occasion they had, we were very safe defensively. Every time we stole the equipment, it came out fast and with the possibility of doing damage. We had many options from set pieces, which is one of our strengths, and perhaps we have lacked that small fortune that is needed in these games. If we had been a little more effective there, the result would be better ”, concluded the rojiblanco center forward.
