Sergio Pellicer: “We played a great game in Ibiza”

The Málaga CF coach, Sergio Pellicer, stressed that against Ibiza his pupils played “a great game” this Sunday., due to the circumstances arising from the injuries suffered by his team and the entity of the second place in the group and direct rival for promotion. “They generate many chances out of nothing and we We came with twelve youth players. We are happy“, he argued after tying a valuable 1-1 draw in Can Misses.

The one from Nules recognized that regardless of what was achieved this weekend, now we have to think about the need to win at home against Alcoyano, next Saturday starting at six in the afternoon. “We have to get our act together, get everyone together. At La Rosaleda we have to take more risks. But having said that, we must recognize that the three teams above are doing very difficult things in the category,” acknowledged the coach who played his last sanctioned match in Ibiza (after seeing the red in El Maulí in Antequera).

For the top technical manager of the blue and white team, he once again remembered that you don’t win with a name. He insisted that the squad has gone 11 games without losing, 12 with the cup match, and is still third, “because Castellón and Ibiza are having a great season.” Thus their players are obliged to win “in all fields.” He also regretted, regarding the development of the match, that in the first half there had not been a “more incisive” Málaga CF.. Or that at the beginning of the second half there would not have been more experience to play the necessary game against the rival.

He recognized that the Ibizans have a “very well-worked team, which in attack has some of the best players in the category.” With the circumstantial call-up this weekend, the Malaguistas have generated “fewer chances than have been created. In that finishing zone we have to generate more,” he argued. In some phases he recalled that the defensive line should have been more active. “We have lacked that last precise pass many times, which is what is worth money in football.” , said.

Regarding Haitam’s great goal, which neutralized the also spectacular shot by former Malaguista Gallar, Pellicer stated that in that last area “the talent belongs to the players. Those goals do not belong to the coaches.” And he returned to justify that with the striker fresh from an injury, “you have to go little by little. During the week, with the workload we maintain, he still cannot play 90 minutes. The important thing is that he has returned and, as much as there is talk of signings in January, There is no other better signing than Haitam“he emphasized.

Regarding his scoring streak, for the Castellón coach it is “the green that was there. And that goes for all the players. That’s where it’s talked about. Haitam is an example and we must continue to take care of him. So that little by little you have more minutes. “In these two games he has shown us that he has something special.”
