Gracia: This is a very special day
Osasuna manager, Javi Gracia was elated by his side’s 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Sunday evening at El Sadar and praised his players for their efforts in the shocking win.
“This is a very special day for us. The win has an added bonus: we scored three goals against the best defense in La Liga. So this victory tastes sweeter than the others.
“It’s an important step in the fight against relegation. It’s a continuation of our daily work. I remember when we lost to Villarreal and Athletic they were talking like the sky was falling. But in the end, if you look at the last 10, we’ve only fallen in those two games. The teams is playing very well and I think we will continue to improve.
“We need to keep growing. This team, with all it’s limitations, always tries to give their all. The games like these, always leave a very sweet taste in our mouths. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the crowd at El Sadar do the wave. It was very nice.”
