Garitano: “El Levante is a good team, we must be careful”

first_imgThe Alavés coach believes that “the new ones could play. Ismael has had minutes at Betis but he is still a 19-year-old boy. And Camarasa started from the middle center when he started playing but then it gave more performance in another more advanced location. The club continues to work in the market to replace Pina ”, said. About the winter incorporation period commented that “It tends to distract players a bit and you have to take people who are more focused. It is what happens in all teams on these dates but you have to know how to adapt and act accordingly. ” About two weeks of work commented that “We would have liked not to have to rest because that would mean we were still in the Cup. But they have helped us to prepare things, play a friendly with the subsidiary and already, in recent days, return to normal. Now we are in the second round and the difficulty and tension increase. We have all played against everyone and we know what each team can aspire to. ” Regarding the rival, he said that “he has very dynamic people upstairs, fast, who can also play differently and have gone from less to more. They have a great coach and are a good team. When you attack you have to be careful that they do not harm you in the transition. They have players that come out fast through the bands and we have to prepare the game to counter that. I think we are prepared for it. ”Looking to the second round He noted that “Outside the home, in the first one, we have been irregular and have added few points. In Mendi it has been different but it is clear that we must improve in the displacements so as not to suffer ”.On the subject of Aleix Vidal, who criticized Garitano for the “amarrategui” approach to Betis (according to his criteria), said that “It is clear that I did not like it but then asked for forgiveness and that is something that usually costs to do and to which we must also give value. What he has to do from now on is to continue contributing as he has been doing until this moment of the season ”.center_img LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 17, 2020last_img read more
