REACTIONS TO A NEW DRAW IN LIGA

02 Apr 2019
The coach and the players were satisfied with the result despite it meant to waste a new opportunity to approach into the first two places.

Natxo González was satisfied as he thinks Depor recovered things in this game “The general valorization was good, at least from my position. I believe we have recovered many things we have lost throughout the way and it was the goal, and the better if we could do it adding a victory, though the latter wasn’t possible.”

“The game was against us since the start, and obviously it’s difficult to go against the tide playing against a team like Oviedo, but we did it. We equalized and the victory was there within the last minutes, they tried with crosses and us trying to chain something. But in a general sense I am satisfied.” He added.

The Basque coach commented on the return of the diamond figure, “We were searching for solutions to what we were facing within the last matchdays and, analyzing the run, I believe our best moments came using this structure.”

About the performance of Carlos Fernández, the comment was, “He was out for a while, and he gave us a lot as he is a differential player, but it isn’t fair to focus on him. We made a good game in a general sense, what happens is that the ones in attack are the ones that must mark the situation.”

Finally the coach defended the performance of Didier Moreno saying that he was forced to play outside of his normal position, “It was for lacking players for that zone [right corner of the diamond figure]. With the idea that we had, it was what we missed.”

Carlos Fernández was saying that the team must feel content with the result, "Oviedo is a great team, there have been times when we rushed, but we knew how to suffer when it was necessary. In general, we played a great game and we have to be happy because it isn’t easy to add here."

He was also thanking the fans that made the trip to Oviedo, “We know the importance that people have in adding, in helping. It's a wonder that more than three thousand people have moved here. Thank you very much. You have to be proud. Let them know that we will need them more than ever during next weekend.”

Quique González also said that the result was positive, “We were coming for the victory. It was key for us, but football at Segunda has these things. We competed facing a rival that pushed us into the limit. The draw might taste like too little, but when you cannot win, then at least to draw.”

Despite Depor are closer to the seventh position than to the second, the striker still aspires to direct promotion, "Until the mathematics says otherwise, we have to fight to the last point, it's a pity, we've given everything and this is football, thanks to the fans for all this support."

At Real Oviedo, coach Juan Antonio Anquela was satisfied with the performance of the team, but no with the result, “We have been very intense. We have been very focused and we have missed the victory by details. We knew what we were going to find. We were close to get a victory that I think we deserved. The rival we had in front was hard, you only needed to see what was at the bench. You look at it and you say against whom we were playing? The rival has pushed. We haven’t been lucid. In the goal we lacked a bit of concentration. And in the end, we finished there squeezing them and with scoring options."
