The coach of Osasuna, Jagoba
Get down, He stressed that, in addition to the faith with which his squad plays every game, “the team is in a great moment physically, something that for a coach is gratifying.”

“Despite having a very good season, there are things to improve. When it ends we will analyze everything more coldly ”, commented an Arrasate, who noted, during the press conference prior to the match against Mallorca, that“ they always “have to” look ahead “.

The one from Berriatúa thinks that, when he is in the First Division, other clubs pay attention to your players. “Even more so if you have a great campaign, but our idea is to keep all the good we have and improve the team with the additions we make.”

Osasuna arrives at the appointment tomorrow after “a very large tute in Barcelona in terms of physical and mental demands”, so Arrasate expects his pupils to reactivate themselves mentally to face Mallorca.

“This group has one last mission and no matter what happens when the game is over, we are going to hug each other because we deserve it,” he added.

The Basque coach would like to see “the version of the last home game against Celta, since that way we will be closer to victory and finish with 54 points, which is the goal we have right now.”

Arrasate believes that it is “outrageous” the fact of having won 5 of the last 7 games and beating the Balearic Islands tomorrow would mean finishing in the first 10 places, “something that would be very nice”.

“We have to refresh the team, it’s a no-brainer. We will have to analyze well which is the best lineup for tomorrow and, if we understand that in that eleven a Promises player must enter because it is the best for the team, we will do it, ”the coach answered when asked about the possibility of giving minutes. Javi Martínez, Aimar Oroz and José Hualde.

“Tomorrow’s game marks a little bit, but if we get the victory, my note for the team will be outstanding,” said Arrasate on what qualification he will put on his squad this season.

A new style without the injured Chimy Ávila

On the situation of Chimy Ávila, a player who already trains with the rest of the group, Arrasate commented that in today’s session “he has scored goals and is very good news”. “But we had doubts about what he could bring us in these last matches after very large inactivity. “

“When we return it will be at its peak. If we are where we are partly it is because of him, but we understood that the best thing was for him not to compete despite the fact that he has long teeth because he looks good, ”said the coach about the Argentine striker.

Arrasate has accepted that Osasuna changed his way of playing as a result of Chimy’s injury after the sports management “moved well with the additions of Arnaiz and Gallego”.

“Getting more points in the second round than in the first has surprised even me,” said the coach. “If we want to continue growing, we have to make decisions that are not easy, and then get it right. More or less we are clear about what we want, but another thing is whether it will be possible ”, he concluded.
