Fran Escribá: “We were an organised team, but that’s not enough.”

Fran Escribá analyzed RC Celta’s defeat against Real Betis. “It wasn’t the dream debut. Not only for the result, but also because of the sensations. We were an well-organized team, but that’s not enough,” said the Valencian coach, who explained his match planning. “Our idea wasn’t to lose as many metres as we lost. We wanted to open the pitch a lot and play on the outside to gain advantage and I don’t remember any moves like that,” he said.

The sky-blue coach also highlighted the attitude of his players. “The players have given absolutely everything. I’m very happy with their attitude throughout the week and today, but there are things at a football level that we haven’t done,” he said.
