Curro Torres:“We are going to give everything we've got, we going to go for them”

Curro Torres talks to VCFradio


Curro Torres, Valencia CF Mestalla head coach, has spoken to the Club’s Official Radio Station, VCF Radio (101.5 FM), to analyse the game against Albacete Balompié. The second leg of the third and final round of the play-offs for promotion to la Liga 1|2|3 will be played at the Carlos Belmonte stadium on Sunday at 8:30pm.

One last push

"We’ve got one last push left to make. There’s 90 minutes left to play, and we’ve got a lot at stake. We’ve worked well all week and tomorrow we’re going to work well again, and we’ll go into the game as we always do. The lads are really up for it and are feeling that excitement which has taken them all the way through to the last game for promotion.
90 minutes

"We’ve got 90 minutes, 90 minutes to turn it around. We’ll try to do the things that we were missing in the first leg. We’ll try to do a few things that will improve us as a team and will give us a better chance of winning".


"One thing I want to be clear about is the fact that I’m proud of the work the lads have done throughout the season, whatever the result on Sunday. We’re going to give it our all, we’re going to give it everything we’ve got to achieve our objective. It’s a really nice objective for everyone, for the Club, for the players, for everybody…but whatever happens, I’m very grateful and really proud of my players because they’ve given me so much during the season, and they’ve given me the chance to enjoy a wonderful experience in this final part of the season, which is really important for me as a person and as a coach, I’m eternally grateful to them".
Grateful to the fans

"We’re going to give it everything we’ve got, because apart from achieving the objective on an individual level or as a group, or as a Club, which is important, because it’s an important step for the Academy, I think there are so many people behind us. We’ve been watching how quickly the tickets for the game have been selling, I’d like to thank the fans because I know it’s not easy, the kick-off time makes it difficult, but they’re giving us so much support. I’m really grateful to the fans for the effort they’re making, and I know those that can’t make it will be supporting us from home".
The challenge

"We’re facing a team who won their group, a team which has been built with the sole intention of going up. It’s already an achievement that we’re here fighting with them for promotion. The result in the first leg wasn’t a fair reflection of what happened on the pitch, but it could have been worse, so the tie is still there for the taking and we’re going to do everything we can. I want to win, don’t get me wrong, I want to win and I want my team to play well, I want my team to turn up and play well, I want them to play the game in the way it should be played. We’ve been in situations like this before, that’s why I’m confident that we can do it. And then we’ll see what fate has in store for us. All I want is that when the game is over, maybe we’re gutted, but we know we did everything we could and played well. We’re going to give it everything we’ve got, we are going for them".
