REACTIONS TO THE DRAW IN LIGA

02 Jul 2020
Neither the coach nor the players were content with the result in Tenerife. There was also criticism towards the use of the VAR.

Coach Fernando Vázquez wasn’t happy as he believes that Deportivo should have won the game, "The feeling is that we dropped two points, not that we earned one. It was a game to win. We were expecting to see Tenerife noticing the tiredness after not making rotations. Çolak went out and we deserved to score a goal. It was a pity, because the draw isn't bad, but a victory would have been better."

The Galician coach was sent off for protesting the penalty, he believes the referee should have re-watched the play using the VAR, "Mujaid jumped and won the ball. In my opinion it was a good defensive move of Mujaid and there wasn't any irregular thing. I am upset, because you need to be humble enough to go and re-watch it on the VAR."

Fernando Vázquez also expressed his concern for the injury suffered by Uche Agbo, "The injury of Uche Agbo doesn't seems good. We need to see if the ligament is damaged. If it is like that, then it's the end of his season."

Álex Bergantiños was also disappointed with the result, “I honestly leave the field with the feeling of having lost two points in one of the best games of the year, many options but the ball didn’t enter. I am satisfied not to lose and proud that the team is growing and has the personality of overcoming results.”

The Galician midfielder was also criticizing the way the referees are using the VAR, “There are a lot more penalties and the referees are now whistling anything, I think it’s getting out of hand, I think they should take action.”

At CD Tenerife, coach Rubén Baraja was valorizing the point added, “You have the possibility of winning the match and in the last action we have dropped two options and it was precisely the most decisive player in these types of situations. It was a difficult match. In front of us we had a great rival who is doing a very good second round. For us the point has its value. We have been close to adding the three, but when you cannot win, the best is the draw and it gives the possibility to add and meet the objective."
