The coach of UD Las Palmas appeared in the pre-match press conference against Levante UD and said that the key is going to be a matter of essence, of believing. We have to live the game from the first minute to the last, being brave and without making any excuses.
The coach of UD Las Palmas, García Pimienta, appeared in the press room on Friday, on the eve of the match against Levante UD, a rival he described as "a great team, everyone knows the goal they pursue. They have very experienced players who are capable of being effective in associative play and when they have to run into space." "During the same game, they are capable of changing the system and deceiving the opponent in that way," he added.
García Pimienta believes "everything comes down to being ourselves in terms of personality, dominating and generating danger in attack, maintaining serenity and defensive rigidity, conceding little to the opponent is what has made us a very solid team."
These were some of his statements:
"We come from two very difficult games, from here I invite the fans to cheer on the players to dedicate them a victory and leave behind the two defeats we have. The fans who traveled to Granada gave their all and we were not up to par, we have already forgotten that and we only think about being able to offer them the victory tomorrow."
"Jonathan is one of the team's players, but he is very important, so we will regrettably be without him. Because he isn't here, we won't offer any justifications."
"When you make such a serious mistake, you end up paying for it, Oviedo arrived once at the goal but in that action we made three mistakes. Mentally, we have been doing the same thing since the beginning of the season, we have tools in the club to do it. We have to give much more and we are all aware of that."
"Tomorrow's game is the most important game of the season, it will be decisive. The end of the season is approaching, if we are capable of winning, we will continue to depend on ourselves to aspire to whatever we can."
"The key I think is a matter of essence, of believing. We have to live the game from the first minute to the last, being brave and without making any excuses."
