Quique González: “It’s a thing of the strikers, his state isn’t the best, not only or the goals. He is fine, training more than before, he demands a lot from himself. I am not worried for his response, he remains to be effective and, at least on the outside, he looks fine.”

 Keeping the 4-3-3? “Yes man. If we found that by playing with wingers it was the fix to everything, then we won’t change. I know the players after a while, so I can make decisions, in all the senses, everyone had a chance and you start making notes, and based on that I am assuming decisions. ”

The next visits are tough: “I assume it as a good opportunity to change the dynamic playing no the road. What best challenge than to face Sporting and Málaga? It should bring hope, because if we want to achieve he goals then we need to add more points on the road.”

Game against Depor: "It's a match with a flavor to Primera, it's very important to be strong at El Molinón, we have to be at our best level. Depor have a problem in terms of away games, but the feelings are better than the points they are getting away from home. It’s a strong team in set-pieces, it’s very competitive in all positions and it’s well directed by Natxo González, if we are at our level, then we will have options."

Depor changed the draw: "Regardless of the draw, they play with a lot of players in the inside, they're going to demand a lot from us, we always look for the best starting eleven and it's a possibility that there will be changes."

Winter window: How do I live the last week of the market? Very calm. I'm isolated from everything. We have a game in which we cannot distract ourselves. My job is to get the most out of those who are here, even though we all like to improve. “

The position of Robin Lod: "Both Robin and Carmona, we chose them to play on the sides although they tend to be more central than wingers. They are players who need a lot of contact with the ball. Of course there are possibilities to see Lod as a playmaker. We work on it for something.”
