We have to keep doing our job, competing and fighting to get the three points for the fans. We have to be able to draw on our strengths, correct mistakes and go for the win”.
Espanyol had been on a good run of form before the final match of the first half of the season, and will look to continue their solid results on home soil in front of the blanquiazul fans.
Rubén continued, “We didn't play well last time out and it's time to correct the mistakes. We have to keep going and working hard because a difficult match awaits us against Osasuna”.
Having returned from injury at the start of the season, the academy graduate concluded by reflecting on his recovery. He said, “Bit by bit, I have been feeling better and playing more minutes. I want to continue contributing to the team. I am learning a lot and I hope to continue this way”.
