For the moment he has not put over the table the subject of the renewal, but that is secondary at this moment.�

The Basque manager also confirmed that Deportivo won’t make any new signing during the winter window, �You try to incorporate someone when the team is living a bad situation or when there’s a position that hasn’t been properly cover by any player. And none of these two circumstances are currently our case.�

Even more, if they would have given us the back, we would surely end relegated. On the present season, the results have helped some players to advance more than they should.â€?
