Adrian Lopez was the centre of attention in Abegondo this morning. He assured that the team “is one hundred per cent behind the coach. We believe in all his plans, in the training sessions he organises. We’re all happy in this sense. We just need that victory that would give us much more than points, because we haven’t won in a long time and we need the win in every sense to turn this around.”

He explained that Clarence Seedorf “analyses everything about the rival and he gives you every option which he believes could harm them, such as counteracting them...”

Regarding yesterday’s match, the Asturian striker believes “from my point of view, it was the typical match to draw 0-0. Those two free-kicks knocked us out of the game.”

Adrian insisted that “we think that the team has improved many things, especially being solid as a team which was not our strong point throughout the season. I think we're more solid now. They don’t create as many chances against us as they used to. We don’t concede as many goals. We have to try and score, try and take the lead and see if we’re able to get 3 points with things in our favour. There were several games where we could’ve achieved that, but we were slightly unlucky. Above all, we’re more dangerous at home and we deserved more in the last games.”

Thus, he coincides with the coach and concluded by saying “I also see positive things in the team and in the situation we’re in, it’s important to draw out positive things. There are always things to correct, to improve, that we have to continue working on. But we have to draw out positive things to see we’re able to rise from this.”

Regarding next Saturday’s match at the Estadio ABANCA-RIAZOR against UD Las Palmas (1 pm, Bein LaLiga), he described it as “a very important match against a direct rival, who is in the same battle as us. We’re playing at home. We have to win because we want to and we need it. We have to prepare the match the best possible way to play like we have done lately at home. It’s complicated for points to slip away playing matches like that.”
