Quique Setién: "Vicente’s goal changed everything"

The UD Las Palmas trainer said, following his team’s victory, that: "Betis pushed us hard and were the better team in the first half, but the goal by Vicente changed everything, perhaps the result is a little flattering".

There are no reactions yet. Be the first!

"Victories always boost confidence and put other bad things in the shade at least in the short term. I think the scoreline was a little unfair on Betis considering how well they played", declared Setién.

"They really pressured us and didn’t allow us to play at all, but the first goal broke the uncertainty and turned the game our way".

"We made the best of our counter attacks to hurt them, and I am satisfied with the result. In the second half we were good both at the back and going forward. This win gives us the points to keep us up, which is very important for the club".

"I wasn’t very pleased with what I was seeing in the first half, we weren’t on top of our game today but I would point to other aspects of our play".

"I intend to use some players from our second team Las Palmas Atlético for the run in to the season, that is the idea I have", he pointed out.

"Betis can rightly complain about the refereeing today, on other days the refereeing decisions have gone against us".
