Fran Escribá: “Conceding goals in such a short period of time hurt us”

RC Celta manager Fran Escribá showed his disappointment at the sky-blue team’s loss to Athletic Club. “We leave disappointed because we didn’t want to lose. We were in a field where there is a lot of intensity and we were not doing well. But conceding goals in such a short space of time hurt us.

Looking ahead to the final match against Rayo Vallecano, the Valencian trainer was moderately optimistic about the current situation in the standings. “The locker room knows it’s close but there was no euphoria because it’s not done. The goal tally keeps us safe but what saves us is beating Rayo and it also puts us in a better position”, he said.
