Depor’s coach was conscious of the big bump in the second part and blamed the tiredness of his players. The players were feeling hurt after allowing two goals in six minutes.

Coach Gaizka Garitano was giving his opinion on the game, “I believe we have made a good game in the first half, but after failing to score the second goal we left the game open. Even at the beginning of the second part we should have scored the second goal, and when they completed their first shot on target, it was when the game changed. The 1-1 changed their morale, later we had problems to react. They had two more days for the rest and we had some players tired. “

“This is a hard hit, because the team truly did the right things in the first part. It’s a hard defeat and we must continue. Their goal came from nowhere and it changed the game, and the second came quickly, so it was unfortunate. We didn’t close the game when we were fine and dominating. It is a pity.” He added.

Many reporters didn’t understand the changes, the Basque man was asked for the reason why Borja Valle entered and played as a left-back, “It was for tiredness. Juanfran and Luisinho were pretty tired and the only thing we were wanting is to pull. Bruno Gama was also tired.”

There was also a question about why the team fell down suddenly in the second part, and the coach only answered that, “We were fine physically. They scored in their first chance and the game changed. They defended pretty well after the 1-2. They scored the second in their second opportunity and later we weren’t fine.”

Finally, Garitano insisted that the tiredness was an important factor in this game, “We are a team from the bottom league and we must move forward, just like Leganés. We scored a goal and deserved the second, later we weren’t fine for the last thirty minutes. We lost the ball too many times and the players were tired for having two less days than the rival. It was unfaithful that they scored in their first chance and later they scored in the second. After that we were worse.”

Celso Borges scored the goal for Depor and was feeling hurt for the defeat, “These are the games that are painful, it is painful for not adding. Personally I am hurt. My partners are also hurt, in the end we lost for two punctual actions. A lot in this sport is mental and tonight everything is mourning, but tomorrow we need to wake up with a new spirit. La Liga gives you these hits and you need to comeback.”

He couldn’t explain how the team allowed two goals in a matter of six minutes, “I don’t know what’s going on. Those were easy goals. It’s also their virtues, but don’t know how to analyze it. The team must follow the same lane, but must keep the result. We are creating chances and must continue like that. I just hope to celebrate more times than the defeats we are suffering.”

Luisinho was also feeling disappointed, “We are sad. We knew it was a difficult game. We knew we needed the three points at home, against a direct rival and we had things under control in the first half. In the end we threw things away and now to think of Atlético.”

“We claimed the lead and did the difficult thing, which was to score the goal, but since then we lost the concentration and we ended playing more with the heart than with the head, so we didn’t clinch the result. We didn’t have patience with the ball and weren’t able to turn back the result.” The Portuguese added.

Raúl Albentosa was talking of the mental weaknesses of the team, “When we allow a goal it looks like the world is ending. We need to have a cold mind. Last year with Málaga we had the burden of spending nine matchdays without scoring and were the last place. We ended eighth at the standings.”

At CD Leganés, coach Asier Garitano said that the equalizer was the key that changed the game, “The fact of getting the equalizer allowed us to go up in the game and we weren’t happy only with that, meanwhile Depor weren’t expecting for that, so they went down. We improved a little what we were doing wrong in the first part, or maybe Depor changed its mood with the 1-1. We are improving and these points will help to improve our mood.”
