"These victories begin to balance the results"
Sánchez Flores stressed that the team is more confident than in the last few days
The blue and white coach, Quique Sánchez Flores, has indicated, after the victory against Real Sociedad, that the team has won in confidence and that the last triumphs help to balance the results. "Winning is important. We are better, with more confidence and the players feel more secure. I hope this match serves to overcome that moment of difficulty we had. Then we stood up and that has allowed us to reach this point and that the players bring out their quality", he said.
In this sense, Sanchez Flores has pointed out that these victories "begin to balance the results. These results validate those moments in which we scored but we did not like the way to do it. This result is similar to the team's moment of form and if we are able to get hooked and hook the fans, it would be fantastic". The coach added that "the goal is to finish in the top ten. It is always good that Espanyol has face and eyes, that people recognize it, that it competes well. We know what we can demand in this last third of the season".
Sánchez Flores has said that this is Espanyol "that we would have liked to see as an evolution since the beginning of the season. It is a squad that always tries, professional and that gives the best of itself. We would have liked this type of game to have been seen more often. Our obligation is to give it more continuously".
The blue and white coach explained that one of the objectives was to make the Real feel "uncomfortable". "We wanted that Zurutuza and Illarra were not comfortable, that Juanmi and Oyarzábal did not have meters to run. We tried to defend where we had more chance of recovering the ball".
