Javier Aguirre

"The first half was difficult for us. We weren't good. We were nervous, or so it seemed to me. We did things we don't normally do, but in the second half it worked out better. We also changed the shape of the game. The goal helped us a lot and the team was better. 

"I was forced by circumstances to put Kang in Lee on the left wing but it was an experiment that didn't work out well. Fortunately, we were able to improve on that and it worked out well.

"We have eight points more than last year with two games to go. It gives a lot of joy to be able to link a third season in LaLiga.

"The fans have always shown me their affection. I'm very grateful for that.”
