Emery asks to advance the last day for the final of the Europa League
“It is to move two, three or four games. I would accept it if I were on the other side,” says the coach.
Unai emery proposed to advance to Saturday 22nd the game of the last day that Villarreal will play on the field of Real Madrid and that in principle is scheduled for Sunday 23. The yellows will play the Europa League final in Poland on Wednesday 26, so they will have little time to rest and prepare for the meeting. The Basque coach, on the other hand, praised his next rival, Sevilla, which he said is an example to follow for the ‘submarine’.
“It is an exciting game and it is also great news that part of the fans return, that we gradually have a certain normality. It is an important game because LaLiga is compressed with six points to go and with our European objectives. It is a solvent rival, structured at the highest level, with players set and made. They have been with a plus more than us, but they are always attractive matches with collective and individual duels. They are a competitive mirror for us “.
Sevilla is a competitive mirror for us
“Yesterday he trained with good feelings, but we have to wait to see if there is a certain risk or we can go forward for a very important game. If not, we have alternatives with Trigueros, who understands that position, Parejo, Costa’s option, who helps always to the team when he plays, or to bet on Funes Mori. None is specific, but you have to be prepared to be recognizable and reliable in our game if Coquelin does not arrive. “
“We are going to be the LaLiga team that will play the most games. That takes a toll on you. Your physical limit puts you in an extreme situation. This has led us to have injuries during the season. The tie against Arsenal was so great It has taken the toll on Foyth and Chukwueze’s injuries. ”
That the last day of LaLiga is played on Sunday and we the final on Wednesday, should be studied
Advance the last day
“Once one reaches the final, that the last day of LaLiga is played on Sunday and we the final on Wednesday, it should be studied. It is a pride that a Spanish team plays the final and would have to play in the best conditions. I understand that La Liga should look for answers for a calendar in which we could have one more day to prepare for the final. We will not have time either to train or to recover for the final. The teams that play for the title and those that are in our fight should play on Saturday. It is to move two, three or four games. I would accept it if I were on the other side. It does not harm anyone and it benefits Spanish football. There I leave the question. It is a final and we do not harm any Spanish team. interests of other characters that I do not control, but I think you can help a Spanish team by playing the day before. “
Playing the Europa League is a very big prize, not a minor one. It is a priority objective
Praise to Sevilla
“Sevilla is taking steps forward and growing steadily. It is reflected by repeating in the Champions League every season with solvent foundations as Atlético did at the time as a regular team in the Champions League, now Sevilla is taking that step. Lopetegui is doing it. a great job, also to make a very balanced, mature squad. Against Madrid they controlled the game in a very solvent way. It’s a team that I like a lot. ”
Be more regular
“We have to find a regularity that we have not had. We have not had evidence and defeats penalize us. We have to find that regularity of victories and game ideas that can sustain us against Sevilla. We will see who has the right when the chances are generated . The victories away leave us in the fight, but the defeats at home penalize us. We have to try to be so focused that nothing deviates us. “
Winning the final would be the bomb, with a huge prize that would be playing the Champions League
“Playing the Europa League is a very big prize, not a minor one. It is a priority objective, we propose with the club the possibility of playing in Europe every year. There are teams of a very high level, world-class. Winning the final would be the bomb, with a huge prize that would be to play the Champions League. They are two very important objectives: to be in the Europa League and win the final. We try to get game by game without thinking about the other. Now talking only about Sevilla and working thinking only about this rival “.
