Ponferradina could not go beyond the draw on their visit to Sanse in Ipurua, where the expulsions marked the performance of both teams. Jon Perez Bolo, Deportiva coach, referred to Edu Espiau from his team afterwards, and acknowledged that the clash played by his pupils was not what he had imagined.
Game. The word that defines the game, especially the beginning, is crazy, with the two expulsions. It was not a game that we would have imagined, but it usually happens, you think that you are going to play under certain circumstances and there are others. The expulsion of Edu has conditioned us, because we have not been focused since that action, the team has left the game until half-time and Real saw how forces were equalized and began to create problems for us. At half-time we asked for more calm, we got ahead, which was the most difficult thing, and when we were calm with the option of scoring the second, his goal came. I think the result is fair.
Expulsion of Edu Espiau. I have not been able to see it live and in the repetitions I do not see it clear either. It is not necessary to give reasons for that expulsion to arrive, that action does not have to take place. We are all at many revolutions and if you make a mistake like that, you have to pay for it, and Edu has made it and paid for it. Such an action cannot be justified, regardless of the situation of each player. Edu is important, he is playing everything and he is doing well, the goals will come, he has to keep working, but if he cannot help with goals he has to help in other facets. I’ll talk to him because you can’t make a mistake like that, but I’m convinced that he’s going to turn the tables and work even harder, because I’m going to squeeze him.
Approach. I wanted to score three points and we are always going to win. The team in many phases of the game has been good against a great rival, dynamic, who makes you go to the limit and they are physically strong. I already said in the previous one that it is a team that I love.
Pujol and Sergi Enrich. At Ricard we have full confidence, he had a tough nut to crack and he played a great game, I’m happy because he has shown in the game what we see in training. He will have to keep working hard and squeezing Ríos because that is going to be good. Sergi we thought he was going to give us that veteran of holding the ball, fighting up, helping pressure … Little by little, perhaps it is a bit premature but those minutes are going to come in handy to get into shape.
Yuri. He wanted to come and play, but he risked taking another blow to the side and losing it for two or three months. This is long, we have a large squad and we thought it was the best.
