Sergio: We are looking forward to competing against a great rival

Cadista coach Sergio González spoke to the media ahead of the match against Athletic Club. "It's always nice to get people back, it adds competition and quality to the tasks. It's very important in terms of performance. There are players who are integrating, who are training with the group and that makes us stronger. From there, the competition to make it difficult for me to see who starts, who starts later. The more tools we have, the better, even if the decision is more difficult," he said.

A word for the last two additions of the summer transfer window. "Kouamé is a versatile player. We were looking for a midfielder for the double pivot, he's perfect for us to have more alternatives. Technically he has a good level. We have to see him in our structure because he comes from being a defensive midfielder in a 4-3-3. He gives us a very good feeling. We need to see if he fits in with what we are asking for. Robert brings a lot of energy, he helps us on both flanks, he is associative, he has a good shot, he has a good finish, he has a good run, he plays inside and he is a very good alternative. We complete the two flanks with Robert. I'd say it's been a good market".

Saturday's opponent. "Athletic is the team that has been the worst for us since we've been at Cádiz. It's a team that has been bad for us, we've conceded a lot of goals. We've got that thorn in our side. I've told the players that against Athletic it's a game that has a bad taste in our mouths. They are a very complete opponent, very balanced, very physical, their records are very good. They are one of the strongest teams in the LALIGA. Their passes are forward, they go for you, you have to be very focused. We must have our football, our possession, make them run at the back and try to hurt them. Playing at home multiplies their strengths. We're very confident and we're sure we're going to compete against a great opponent".

Message for the Cadista youth team. "The first thing is that if you work hard and compete you can achieve your dreams. Our first team squad has always been very large, that prevents us from having the habit of pulling from the reserve team. We are a coaching staff that has always looked at the youth system, we have given debuts to many players who have gone on to become consolidated in the first team. They have to be playing at their best because they have to knock on the door and we're going to be there, we're going to keep an eye on them".
