The Asturian coach is self-critical and only thinks about overcoming the Copa del Rey elimination and then adding the three points in the "vital" game against Sevilla FC
Valencia CF coach Marcelino García Toral has spoken to the media ahead of the Copa del Rey match against CD Ebro on Tuesday at Mestalla (7:30 p.m.), which is played before the LaLiga game versus Sevilla FC
How is the team feeling?
We have to be always reflective and self-critical. Knowing what we do well and what we do not and we have to improve. From there we have to think about tomorrow's game and we know that the next day of LaLiga is very important, that we have to face both with the only spirit of winning. We compete I think that extraordinarily well against Juventus and against Real Madrid we had a first time in which we were below the level for which we are qualified and we should demand, then we had a good second time, in which, if we had been successful, perhaps the result would be different. If we can play again at the level of the second half, we can beat any opponent.
Is Sevilla a decisive match?
We will talk about Sevilla next Friday. But it is very clear that it is a vital match. At the classification level and also at the mental level. We have to join forces to win that game.
What's going on with Guedes?
Guedes did not have a preseason. He was absent from collective work. Then he got in shape here, but he had a problem in the game against FC Barcelona. It looked like the adductor, but it was in the pelvic area. And that problem, persists. He had a good participation on the day of Juventus and the other day I think he was very limited. That prevents him from being at his maximum performance and he can not exploit his virtues. Measures to take? I do not know if a preventive measure or a solution that involves removing that pain will be taken. It has moments when it is good and in others it is not.
