David Simon was the centre of attention in Abegondo this morning.

The Deportivista wing-back spoke about the first 3 consecutive matches away from ABANCA-RIAZOR: “It was important to begin like that. Scratching points away is good for us and after we must do well at home.”

In a very equal competition, he believes the team must be “very regular like up until now. We have a lot of room for improvement. So, this is the way."

Regarding Saturday's match in Tenerife (8:30 pm, LaLiga 1|2|3 TV), David Simon, who is from Las Palmas, does not believe it to be anything special: “They’re another rival. I’m here in A Coruña. Before, when I was in Las Palmas, it was the derby there. I’m focused on work. We will go there to do what we’re doing, try to do our work and gain the 3 points.”

Asked about last Friday’s match in Almendralejo, the Branquiazul defender recalled “it’s not easy playing away in Second Division. The play many long balls...”

He also admitted that “when we're in the lead, they begin to gradually push you back. But there’s a lot of room for improvement. We’re competing well, which is important. We’re playing the ball well for many minutes during the matches. But the most important thing I’m seeing is the team, the group: all for one.”

Along these lines, he positively values the fact the team have only conceded 1 goal, from a penalty, in 2 matches away from A Coruña: “People are being very down to earth, working very hard, from the strikers to the defender. That is the way." “We can enjoy the team a lot and we have lots of room for improvement,” he insisted.

He explained that the style of play set up by Natxo Gonzalez “gives us full-backs a lot of freedom. We have to work on it a lot, which is what we’re doing. We have to carry on persisting."

He explained that the coach asks him “to always be well-positioned. When we have the ball he lets you create, lets you do what you want, always in that order.”

David Simon believes that Deportivo can be proud of having a team “with a lot of quality, a lot of talent.”

Even though the league is beginning, he believes it is “important” to already be at the top of the table, “especially us with 3 points away from home. Second Division is complicated. This is the way.”
