Sergio González: We have tried and we have not been able

The Cadista coach analyzed the defeat against Mallorca at a press conference

The Cádiz CF coach, Sergio González, appeared in the Son Moix press room to analyze the yellow team's defeat against RCD Mallorca on matchday 34 of LaLiga Santander.

The yellow coach acknowledged leaving "annoyed for the first 15-20 minutes." "I think that Mallorca has come out of the game much better, they have come out with more energy, much more involved, winning the duels, the second plays, doing things that we had commented that they could do, and we have not come out with that frequency," he commented. before adding that "from the goal, the team has stabilized a bit more and, in the second half, I think we were better than them". "I don't know if that gives you a tie, I think the punishment in the first half is very serious, because we have a play with a horizontal ball, our center-back slips, it ends in a corner, second play... In their peak moment they have been able to score the goal, and we have tried in the second half", he deepened. Likewise, he emphasized detailing that "the team has tried by all means, but we knew where we were coming from, the strengths that Mallorca had... And we left annoyed, because we lost the first of the five bullets to be able to get closer to the objective" .

In any case, he remembered the importance of the next home game. "To clear our heads, to have a good week and to play it at home against Valladolid, which is a vital game". Immediately afterwards, and questioned about the development of the game, he recalled that "everything" that Mallorca warned about in the preview "has been reflected in the first 20 minutes, up to the goal: many changes of orientation with wingers, many second plays, many transitions... There it has been similar to what we had worked on, but we have not gone out with the frequency of the game". "Then we have been equalizing what has been his match, in the second part we have tried, but we knew that it would be difficult to overcome his block," he qualified.

In this sense, he stated that he knew "that the important thing was that they not get ahead of you on the scoreboard because then they strengthened their defensive phase, the first minutes have mortgaged us for the rest of the game, then we tried and we were not able to". "To recover, to be aware of the opportunity we have lost, but to clear our heads, to have a good week and we have another opportunity next Friday," he concluded.
