Luis Enrique finished the match against Georgia, in which the Spanish team achieved a placid victory, satisfied by what was seen and by the game played by his team, especially because, according to the coach, the result can be misleading: “Although the result may seem easy, it is not. In the last ten minutes we have not taken the ball from him because if you don’t pressure them well, you don’t take it away. It was a very complete game. ”
The coach considers that “we have surpassed them on the inside, on the outside, we have created closeness situations and we could have scored more goals” and regrets because “most of the changes have been due to some discomfort from the players, I hope there are no serious injuries , that’s the bad news. ” Luis Enrique also had time to respond to the deep sea that always surrounds La Roja, which received criticism after falling to Sweden: “We professionals are used to living on a roller coaster. You have to go through a duel after a loss, but quickly bite the bullet and think about the next game“.
In that sense, it was clear with Marcos Llorente’s game, who claimed to feel more comfortable in midfield and showed it with two assists: “I always listen to all my players and they have to listen to me. Marcos adds in any position, like Aspi or Rodri. The best thing is that everyone is waiting to play in any position, they adapt and the atmosphere remains the same as in the European “.
Regarding the changes due to injury, he commented that “Laporte has nothing, it is only a small overload and I do not even believe that they will test him.” Instead, he did say that Gayá “does not look good”. The footballer himself commented that this Monday morning they would do an MRI to find out the extent of the muscle injury and that “I have never injured myself in the soleus and I do not know if I am injured or not.”
