Florin Andone spoke to the press in Abegondo this afternoon.

The Deportivista striker described Alaves (Deportivo’s rival this Saturday at 6:30 pm in Mendizorroza, Bein LaLiga), as “a pressing and very physical team. They’re going to go all out. They’re going to try to kill us and go out to win the match. We have to make things very difficult for them, we’ll have to play our football and go with the mindset of playing a good match and bringing those 3 points.”

The Romanian international assured “we’re working every day to improve things, to improve the things we haven’t done well so far. I think that little by little we’re going to gain that strength that the coach conveys, and those things that he wants to correct. I see the team is doing better each day. Let’s hope that shows on the pitch.”

Towards this decisive stage of the competition, Andone urged fo everyone to be “united, the people here, the Club workers, players, coaching staff... We have to be united, strong and pull this off. Nobody else is going to help us.”

He promised Deportivistas, “We’re going to work our arses off, we’re going to give our all until the end, and whatever will be, will be. I can assure you that we will do whatever it takes until the last minute. I’m sure we’re going to pull this off, I’m convinced. The team is going to give its all, we're giving our all. The sun has to come out for us some day too.”

Asked about Clarence Seedorf, he explained, “we have to give him some time. He’s very excited, extremely enthusiastic. We're working hard tactically to improve things. He’s doing a good job. For people, this is only reflected in the results and how the team plays at the weekend. He’s come with the utmost enthusiasm, and we’re very comfortable with him. We're going to go all out until the end. We’re going to all row in the same direction and pull this off.”

He insisted that the players “want to save the team. We're going to give our all until the end. Our names say we’re good players, but we have to prove it on the pitch. We haven’t had the best rewards so far, but there are 15 games left, 15 battles ahead, 15 finals in which we have to give our all. I’m sure that with new hope, a new coach, and with all the things we’re working on day in day out, we’re going to pull this off.”

He highlighted, “every match we’re going to play from now on is a final for us. I’m sure we’re going to pull this off. I don’t want to relegate to Segunda and I assure you that nobody wants to relegate here. We’re going to pull it off. I’m sure.”
