Imanol was very satisfied to win again, after four days without doing so. “We are happy to win again, we wanted to win because it was an ‘X file’ that, with everything this team was doing, we weren’t going to win any more games. It’s difficult to play better than this team has done in recent games, against Betis, Barcelona, the first part of Rayo, Levante, today against Cdiz… “, he recalled.
The technician has highlighted the third pass in a row to Europe of his royal. “Very very much, only the champion teams have been able to do it, so imagine.

Imanol has regretted, yes, again the lack of success to have fought for higher levels. “He has a tremendous merit and we are happy, but at the same time sad because, if we had been successful in the last five games, we would be fighting for something bigger. We have a huge shame because we have missed a unique opportunity to fight for the Champions League in recent days”, he revealed.
The Real will play the Europa League with Villarreal. “We are going to face one of the best teams in EuropeHe has shown it by eliminating Juve and Bayern, and making Liverpool suffer. That is why it is so meritorious that we are ahead of them in the standings, we have two Champions League teams ahead of us but, if we play as we are doing, we will have our options”, he pointed out.
Finally, he has spoken of the great match of David Silva and Portu’s first goal. “David is crazy, but not only competing, but also training. We are not going to discover his quality, but I have discovered his dedication and involvement. If they have made a bust in the City, it is for something. And from Portu, to say that we love him as he is and that I celebrated the goal of the most, because he deserved it “, he pointed out.
