Sergio González has appeared at a press conference after the 1-4 loss at the Carranza Trophy against Atletico Madrid. The coach was dissatisfied and wanted to point out that Cádiz CF will be ready to compete in the first league game against Real Sociedad next Sunday.
“It’s not the result we wanted for our debut in front of our fans. We have six important casualties and they have made us think of another drawing. Today the line of 3 had different problems, we have not required the match well. It could have weighed us down. ANDIt’s a preseason game, it’s not the result What we wanted and the important thing is when the league starts to improve and we have a lot of work to do. The team will compete again.”
On the situation that has been experienced on the pitch, he wanted respect the fans and has shown uncertainty about the transfer market for his team. “To the people you have to respect their opinion. I have seen an atmosphere of pressure, logical in a match like today. We want to have the best footballers, they have given their opinion and we are clear about the resources we have. We are all working hand in hand. The partners have to push and the board of directors will surely try to bring in the best footballers. Uncertainty is normal because rivals strengthen and you don’t, but the president will do his job.”
Regarding the win, he made it clear that the team had no defensive problems and that the goals were the product of bad luck. “I don’t think there is fragility, the goals have been a mixture of everything. The third has hurt us and the fourth has come because of that. It’s a stick for the presentation to your people, but we’re working on a good line and we’re going to improve it and hit the key”.
Regarding the differences with last season’s squad, he stated that the team will compete and that the players who come off the bench will give that motivation to the rest. “We have been training for two days, I cannot compare with last year. We are adjusting everything and the team is greasing. I liked the footballers who have come off the bench, they have contributed things to the team”.
It has also made it clear that the preparation has been modified because the World Cup It takes place in the middle of the season. “In this last week we have increased the volume of training due to the World Cup. The goal is to be well on Sunday against Real Sociedad and these games are hard work, the result is the least of it”.
Regarding the presentation at the Trophy in front of his fans, he was enthusiastic, despite not achieving the desired result. “It is an illusion to be with your people, we would like to have lifted the trophy, but we are left with that thorn. Although in recent years the trophy has not been achieved and we have managed to save ourselves. Hopefully this year the same.”
Saúl didn’t want to dwell on the goal with his hand and is focused on the next game on Saturday against Sevilla. “The referee has recognized that it had been a hand, but being adapted to the VAR It can condition you. The game was a pre-season game of charging minutes, adding minutes, having a very strong rival and showing your best version. We have to accept it and that this does not take away any encouragement. Now to prepare for Saturday’s game with all my heart.”
has shown his happiness for how the signings are performing they have arrived. “Zaldua is going to make us grow as a team and Mabil is eager, excited and we need to adapt to the competition. We need to get a good level out of him and he will surely help us”.
Finally, it has been confirmed that Negredo and Alejo can reach the league start. “Negredo may make it to the start of the league, Alejo too and Sobrino couldn’t tell you. They are passing tests.”
