David Simón spoke to the press in Abegondo at the end of this morning's training session.

Regarding last Saturday's Teresa Herrera Trophy at the ABANCA-RIAZOR against Real Betis, the Deportivista fullback highlighted the team's "great attitude and intensity".

He emphasized that the Coaching Staff "want us to be a team, to be all-for-one, to be intense and that anyone can make a mistake but having a good attitude comes first, that's what matters."

On a personal level, he explained that last season "I was out 2 months due to a groin problem. I then took part in the playoffs. Come the pre-season and I'm very excited, but once more, I have a groin problem which I have to take care of. We decided to rest during those weeks and I just began training back to normal last week. I have to work so that I'm ready when my opportunity comes."

David Simón believes that "there were very good players last season, many of them have left to Primera. This year we're a team, which doesn't mean that we weren't last season, but this season, I'm sure we'll be more united in the bad moments and I'm sure we'll run more. We're going to be more intense, have a good attitude, and be a great team."

Just like Eneko Bóveda last Saturday after the Betis match, he highlighted that in Second Division "you have to take each day as it comes along. We have to be calm down because this hasn't begun yet. There's still a lot left. In the end, we have to be positive. We've improved throughout the pre-season. The other day we did what the coach wants us to do. There's still a lot of room for improvement but we're on the right track."

He insisted that "the idea is to be ourselves, be more intense than the rivals and run more than them. And then do whatever the coach prepares as every game is different and has its pros and cons. The main thing is to have the attitude we're having, always double our rival's effort. From there on, whatever the coach asks of us, we'll do."
