Escriba: We have a lot of confidence
Elche manager, Fran Escriba recently stated that despite last week’s loss to Rayo Vallecano, the team is confident and is ready to take on Champions League qualifiers, Real Sociedad at home on Saturday evening.
“The team has a lot of confidence and we are in the right state of mind to compete. We’ll try to make the best of it. We’ve seen what we did wrong against Rayo (last week) and also the good things. Yes it was a bad game but the players have worked hard this week to get a good result.
“[Real Sociedad] was very good last year and are starting this season in great form. They started the season at a high level. They have responded well to the coaching change because the great work they did last season is adding more work this season.
“We hope to have the ball and wear down the opponent. Saturday we’ll try to be better in that aspect than we were against Rayo. They are a very dangerous opponent.”
Escriba then spoke about the fatigue Real Sociedad may be suffering from and they hope to take full advantage of that.
“We’ll try to take advantage of the fact they they come here fatigued, but even so, they will come very focused.”
