Alavés: Machín downplays Lucas Pérez’s statements

Pablo Machin He wanted to look for the positive side to the demand for transfers by the Galician forward at the end of the match at the Estadio de La Cerámica. “I don’t think it should be given importance or taken out of context. For me the signings are Luke, Joselu, Manu, Pineapple … I have to get the most out of the people we have, who are footballers with proven experience and quality ”, he explained. “In football, only the present is useful, because nobody lives off his curriculum,” he recalled.

The coach does not lose hope and hopes that his Alavés can make some reinforcement in the final stretch of this transfer window. “Surely the club if it can, within the enormous difficulties that exist with the pandemic, within the salary limits that exist, will try to make the best squad,” he said. “Up to the tail, everything is bull and, from now to the end of the market, we have to be prepared for both possible entries and possible exits,” he said enigmatically.

Compare Joselu with a signing

Mr. Babazorro was happy to have Joselu for the derby. “For us he is … I was going to say like a signing, which he is not,” he said. “He is one of the players with the most goals and surely he will want to celebrate his fatherhood with more goals and a victory, which we need,” he said. The one from Stuttgart is a fundamental piece not only for his finishing efficiency, but also for his ability to fix the rival defenses and his great power in the passing game. After having a conversation with Pablo Machín shortly after the birth of his son, the coach decided not to play last Wednesday to be able to count on him against Athletic.
