Emery: “You have to forget Arsenal’s red and think about Getafe’s blue”
The Villarreal coach gets the league chip despite the importance of next Thursday’s game
ORNai Emery is still not thinking about the game against Arsenal, despite the importance of the match for Villarreal’s history, and asks his players to focus on Getafe. The coach said that some players who played on Thursday will have to repeat.
How do they get there: “Yesterday we made recovery for those who played and for the decision of who is going to play tomorrow, the passing of the hours will be important. We are watching Getafe and what they propose to us to maintain our identity, so we have to evaluate it well. We have Foyth’s withdrawal and we await the evolution of Peña, the rest, except for Trigueros’ sanction and that there is a problem of muscular fatigue, will be there. We will have to evaluate all the data and make the effort to play some players who played on Thursday. “
Chip change: “The league is the priority, but I understand that we are already in the semifinals and people see a very important step close by and focus all their efforts. From there came Foyth’s injury or Capoue’s play that ended up in expulsion. The league is there, and luckily or unfortunately we are in accessible positions for our goals, but with the risk of losing them. There are teams that have been hooked like Celta and Granada, even Athlétic. We have to leave them behind and accelerate with those in front. Europe conditioned us with Foyth’s injury, but we must forget what is coming and think about Getafe. On a mental level, we know, we must change the chip little by little and only think about the yellow and blue of the Getafe. Forget Arsenal’s red until Thursday. And you have to have energy and play to beat them. “
Getafe: “It is a team that comes from a season that was impressive like the last one, and this year it has not managed to have that regularity and has returned to its more normal context, which is to fight for permanence. It has the stamp of Bordalás, they fight and they are aggressive in pressure, and has good players, with quality. They have found a good moment with Enes Unal, who will come motivated. They compete the 90 minutes well with a successful coach. He started in second B when I did it and with a good performance , although this year has another reality “.
Waiting party: “The first key is to be able to build a team with our identity. Seek to hold them, know how to get out of their pressure, create spaces and get our best individual versions to make a difference.
Players waiting for opportunity: “Against Osasuna at home we made certain changes. I was sorry that we did not win because we did not win with players who deserve it. Against Getafe we pay attention to performance and responsibility. There will be some different players, but taking into account that we need to win in a match very difficult”.
Capoue: “The first medical evaluation rules out an injury despite the fact that he was removed on a stretcher. If tomorrow he does not have major discomfort, given the casualties and that he will be out in London, if there is no news I hope to be able to count on him tomorrow. I will have to give time for his Recovery”.
Winning mindset: “You have to create an inner mentality, in the team, to be a winner. It is a long process, sequence, that you have to polish and manifest. Every game there is an opportunity to do something, to improve individually and as a team. In the league every game is an opportunity to win three points, and you have to see it that way. We have lost opportunities to have more credit in this season finale in the league, while in Europe we have covered our opportunities. 38 rounds in the league is ideal, but it is difficult. If we win we will be closer to Europe, and that is our chance “.
Return of the public: “COVID is a very sensitive issue, there are people with very negative consequences, returning to abnormality goes beyond football. We all have family and we wait for vaccines. We want normality to arrive but I am not the one to say when the People. The fans show us that they want to live this historic moment with us. When they return we will have to adapt again to playing with the public. “
