Carles Gil: "The most important thing is we know which way to continue”

Carles Gil, one of the highlighted players from last Saturday’s match against CD Leganes at the Estadio ABANCA-RIAZOR, stated in Abegondo’s press room this morning that “I’m progressing well. The other day I was able to last eighty-something minutes at a good rhythm. The important thing is to have good sensations, no pain, and at the moment it’s going that way.”

He wished for Fede Cartabia, his teammate who has just undergone a similar operation to his, “to recover as quickly as possible. We’re waiting for him with open arms.”

He believes that the victory against Leganes was “very important, even more so after the other teams’ results. We knew it was going to be a difficult game. I think we played a good match. We achieved the objective and we’re happy for it.”

For the future, he requested “to be regular in our playing style and above all in the results. The most important thing is we know which way to continue."

Ahead of Sunday’s game at the Camp Nou, for the 16th fixture of LaLiga Santander, against FC Barcelona (8:45 pm, Movistar Partidazo), Carles Gil believes “we have to face it like an eleven against eleven match. It’s what we do every weekend. Logically, we know who we're facing, we’re facing a phenomenon. In the end every match has its conditions, its characteristics. The rival has its strong points but also some weak points which we have to make the most of.”

Along these lines, he emphasized, “Celta’s precedent (who drew 2-2 two weeks ago) can be good for us. When you go to the Camp Nou you know they want to have the ball, have possession. If you want to do something important, when you have the ball you have to try and keep it, not lose it quickly, in areas where they are more dangerous, where they rob it and come out quickly. We will rehearse this and prepare it throughout the week.”

Asked about the standings, each week tighter in the mid-bottom part, the Deportivista forward stated, “what’s happening this year is like what has happened for many years in Second Division, that now the bottom part, the mid-bottom part of the table, we’re all there together, with a 6 or 7 point-difference among many teams. In one sense it’s good because if you’re on a roll of good results you can climb more. But everything is much tighter. I prefer it like that because it makes you focus on yourself.”
