García Pimienta: "We must keep full effort from minute one until minute ninety."
The UD Las Palmas coach spoke after the game at the Palladium Can Misses and claimed that "in the second half we showed the team's ambition to take a step ahead and be ourselves".
In his post-match interview, García Pimienta discussed his team's victory over UD Ibiza: "Ibiza dominated the first half in every aspect. The situation has changed in the second half, not just because of the expulsion, but also because of the team's willingness to step up and be themselves ". "We created chances, and after scoring the second goal, we wanted to push for the third, but it was not feasible. We must be proud of the three points, but we must accomplish many things well in order to attain big goals “ he went on to say.
The coach emphasised that his squad "From minute one to minute ninety, the player must maintain maximum intensity. The games are open with 1-2 on the scoreboard, and it has to help us learn."
"Good players can always play together; it's true that Jonathan is returning from an injury and must gradually take up the tempo. He and Moleiro will play many games together and provide us a lot of joy," said the coach, who also praised Enrique Clemente's efforts: "He is training extremely well and last week he played a very full game, he offers us versatility, and I believe he rightly played a very complete game today as well."
"I think we lost two points unfairly last week, and football gives you what you deserve, so we have to enjoy the victory," he concluded.
