García Pimienta: " Believing in ourselves is what has made us strong "
The coach of UD Las Palmas pointed out that "when you face a rival like Tenerife, it's a special game and neither the teams nor the fans take into account the standings.
"García Pimienta faced the media on Friday morning in the press room at the Ciudad Deportiva. The coach started the press conference by saying, "We've planned the game knowing the importance of playing a derby. When you face Tenerife, it's a special game and neither the fans nor the teams take into account the standings." "We're eager to face the game and give a victory to the fans," he added.
He also stated that "our great advantage is that we have many homegrown players who understand what a derby means, knowing the responsibility that comes with the game, I think that will play in our favor."
The coach affirmed that "without much pressure, because there's still a lot left, we have to do things better. Tomorrow's game will be beautiful and demanding, the week has been very good and we have the opportunity to get the three points."
"We always talk about the flaws, it's my duty to control the teams in the category, we have to be brave and protagonists. I completely agree with Jonathan's statements yesterday, it will go very well for us if we continue as we have been, we have to believe in ourselves because that's what has made us strong."
We're coming off two tough draws because the team wanted and deserved more. It's crucial to win tomorrow, everything we add now is what nobody will take away from us.
Regarding the opponent: "Tenerife has very clear ideas, equality in the category makes you lean towards up or down. What I'm very clear about is that they'll fight to make the most possible points, they have the potential for it," he concluded.
