Dépor practise set-pieces and Fernando Vázquez analyses the pitch factor

20/11/2020 13:01

As usual, two days before match-day, Deportivo had a lighter session in Abegondo.

The lads rehearsed set-pieces after warming up, some rondos and football-tennis. The players then went to the gym for a recovery workout and then to the physio room to receive massages.

Valín, Derik, Juan Rodríguez and Adri Castro trained separately, the latter at home.

This morning, Fernando Vázquez spoke to the press in Abegondo. He stated he is "very excited to return" to the bench this Sunday in Guijuelo, after being suspended. 

Vázquez warned that the Estadio Municipal de Guijuelo's astroturf pitch "is a reality we have to be aware of. The pitch factor is a factor the coach always takes into account. We're going to play at a ground in which everything levels. A team that isn't adapted suffers, tactical aspects disappear, skilful aspects level, therefore it's a match in which the casual factor can predominate."

Just like Álex Bergantiños yesterday, Fernando Vázquez was also asked about Javier Tebas' latest statements in Marca where he claimed there was pressure from Galician authorities and irregularities in the Xunta de Galicia regarding the Fuenlabrada case, to which he replied, "I find him to be ethically dishonest and a cheater. He lies knowingly. But he is like that. What can we do? I don't think it's complicated to understand what happened and discuss it with intelligent people. He is stubborn, he is in denial and he wants to show and sell his fantasy to the media that are interested. There's no opposition because Deportivo wants to overcome this situation. But what Mr Tebas is proving with these statements is that he is a blatant liar. And whoever wants to buy this will buy it, but obviously neither us Deportivistas nor the city of A Coruña buy this."
