Marcelino: “It's a shame not to beat Celta, now we have to think about Eibar”

Marcelino García Toral spoke in the press room at Balaídos after Valencia CF's draw with Celta Vigo, saying he was proud of his players' work

Assessment of the game

“It’s a shame not to win, yes. In the first and second halves we had more chances than our opponent, we dominated. It’s a shame to have taken only one of seventeen chances. It wasn’t to be, but we’re very proud of our play and the team’s hard work at a tough ground and against a great opponent like Celta”.

Celta’s goal

“The most important thing about this game is that we overcame what happened last week against Getafe. Celta were really clinical, it was straightforward, they won the ball, but it’s more credit to them than our error. After that they barely created chances”.

Always ambitious

“We want to win every game, today was the same. But it wasn’t to be. We tried, the team battled, defended, ran, competed, believed… and we just lacked the ability to finish. Now we’re going to rest and try to beat Eibar at home. We hope to make this dream that seemed far-off at the beginning of the season a reality. We’re coming off the back of a defeat and we want to change that in front of our fans”.

Valencia CF are one unit

“We’re all one, and when that’s the case, it’s hard to beat us. I like to make sure all the players are involved in this great season because they deserve it”.
