García Pimienta addressed the media in the press room of the Estadio Olímpico Lluís Companys, following the loss against FC Barcelona. Regarding the match: "We adapted to a situation we weren't accustomed to, except for this match against Barça; we have always been victorious in possession, allowing us to dictate the course of the game."

Some of his statements:

"Valles' dismissal is justified; I have nothing to say. I haven't seen the offside action clearly repeated, and the fourth official has informed us that they saw it that way."

"Valles is upset; I saw it at the end of the first half. It's not just about being sent off, leaving the team with one player less; you feel a bit responsible. Álvaro is having a magnificent year. Aarón had a very good debut match."

"We always train with a game plan, which involves having the ball. We had to play with one player less in such a scenario. Very proud of the team; they have shown the ability to compete and endure with one player less, even without a team like Barça creating very clear chances."

"I've been here for 28 years as a coach; I've grown as a player, coach, and person, but right now, I'm at UD Las Palmas. I've had three wonderful years at a club that has given me everything. We've been able to play a promotion playoff and achieve direct promotion. I'm very focused on finishing the season as best as possible."
