Pacheco: ‘We are hurt, we had made merits to score’

Alavés goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco, considered that his team made “merits to score” despite ending up defeated by the Atlético de Madrid (1-0) before which they had a penalty in the final minutes, which the Slovenian goalkeeper Jan Oblak stopped his partner Joselu Mato.

“We are hurt, I think we had made merits to score here today, but at the same time hopeful and proud of my teammates, they have given everything, we have been a month in which it has not been reflected in points but we are getting closer to the goal, if we play like this we will achieve it without any doubt, “said the goalkeeper in statements to ‘Movistar +’ after finishing the match.

With this Sunday, Alavés have had six games without winning, with five defeats and one draw. “Football has this type of streak, you have to get used to it. We are very close to turning all this around, we have to continue working with humility, trusting in us and I think we will achieve it,” said the goalkeeper.

Penultimate with 23 points, the same as Eibar And two of the salvation that Elche marks, for Pacheco the key to recovering from that situation will be knowing how to handle the pressure.

“The team that best controls its emotions, that makes the fewest mistakes, will achieve the goal. We are in an upline, although the points are not coming, but we are on the right track, “he considered.

The goalkeeper also came up against rumors about a supposed bad atmosphere in the locker room ‘babazorro’. “They are things that do not depend on us, we know what we have inside, that we are all rowing in the same direction, rumors exist and nothing can be done, hopefully in the future it will not be so free to throw defamations,” he settled.
