Diego Martínez: “We have fallen with our heads high”

“Now the European teams already know who Granada is,” recalled the Granada coach

ANDl grenade says goodbye to the Europa League, but does so without stopping competing: “I cannot blame the team or the players for anything. We have lacked efficiency, we deserved to score, both today and in the first leg, we felt we could get through the tie against a team like Manchester.”

For Diego Martínez this tie is a success despite being left out: “We have fallen with our heads high and competing until the last second. This is tremendous, it is above the Cup semifinalsThis is Europe, now the European teams already know who Granada is. “

When you play at your highest level and give everything you have inside, it is already a success, it is what has brought us here “

The Galician coach wanted to underline that idea, highlighting the attitude of his players: “When you play at your highest level and give everything you have inside, it is already a success, it is what has brought us here. We have transmitted and infected until the end, we have played fifteen games in Europe, we have to finish our journey at Old Trafford, but that is already a success. “

“What these players transmit will last over time”

At times, Granada has collided with Manchester, but Diego Martínez does not believe that the team has felt impotence: “When you face such powerful and strong teams, many things have to be done in favor, and favorable circumstances have been conspicuous by their absence, although the score does not reflect what has been seen on the pitch starting from the basis that we are two teams in which there is no comparison, but on the green Granada has gone with two markers that do not reflect the performance that has been in the field.

The emotional legacy that this team is going to leave is beastly for the history of Granada “

The Vigo player also wanted to highlight the soul of this team: “The emotional legacy that this team is going to leave is brutal for Granada’s history. We are a small part of a great legacy, but what these players transmit will last over time, they are a great example for those modest teams that exceed expectations. “

On Her future, Diego Martínez has once again been elusive: “All the focus has to be on the work the team has done, we have eight exciting games ahead of us. Granada and these players are very special, now we are going to enjoy ourselves and when the end of the season comes it will be time to stop and think and analyze what we have experienced “.
