Abelardo: “Athletic is a team that I love”

first_imgWill Athletic first come home victory?“Hopefully. It is true that it is strange that in one round the team has not won at home. Tomorrow we have another chance. We will try for now. For now we have added four points and the image has been very good. We hope to maintain the intensity line, of compete and play football well. The situation is what it is and we need results. It’s a very nice game. “Can you play Embarba?“The next 18 can play, but we would be annoyed. Both Cabrera and Embarba participated in their clubs, so I have included them.” Do you see Cabrera on the left side?“In principle the last years he has played as a central. It is a position that he could adopt but his position is that of central.”How does the team get to the game?“It has been a rare, beautiful week but without time to prepare the game. We have not been able to work at a tactical level. Unfortunately, as we are, there will be 18 finals in the face of a dog. We have a very difficult, very intense rival, very difficult to win. They are eighth, is the second team that fits the least. We will try to play from you to you, as against Villarreal. “ What does Athletic expect?“They play with two systems, even three. We will see how the Garitano game raises. They are a team that I love, hyperintense, that circulates the ball very fast, that handles well second plays. They will demand a lot.”Would you rather have a shorter template?“I am happy with what I am, it is not up to me if a player leaves or not. I am happy, I stay with the ones I am delighted. My mission is to plug them in. From here to three or four matches I still go crazy and change at ten. “Is the team in the process of improvement?“I would have signed four points against Barça and Villarreal. We were very good. At the moment in two games the fans have enjoyed. I am very grateful that people are hooked to the team. We need them. We have to feed the desire of the parakeet fan. In these we have infected two games and we have to keep doing it. “Is it very important that the signings be of immediate performance?“Yes, it is very important. It is not the same that these three players who know the League come that three players come from outside. My English is macaroni. There have been three very good additions I am very happy with the work of the sports direction.”last_img read more
