Luisinho spoke to the press in Abegondo this morning.

The Deportivista left-back believes the team finished last Friday’s match against Espanyol “with a better sensation than other matches. We know one point is no good. In the situation we're in, we have to make 3 each match because the situation is a little delicate.”

However, according to Luisinho, the team proved “it can do even better. One point was unfair, we deserved 3. The team was alive and in the game from the first to the last minute. We created the best opportunities. Spirit-wise, the team is well and proved it can pull this off.”

He did warn that “we have to achieve this as quickly as possible because otherwise it will be more complicated towards the end.”

For this reason, he emphasized that the games this week against Getafe away and Eibar at home on Saturday, “are very important for us. With a victory in Getafe and then another receiving Eibar, we can climb out of the zone we’re in. We have to start winning now. It’s not going to be easy until the end. It’s in our hands. We can still climb.”

On the contrary, if we do not gain any points, “it’s going to be difficult to pull off. Mathematically you’re not out (of the competition) with 10 games left, with the fixtures we have at the end, it’s not going to be very easy.”

He confessed that at the end of last Friday’s game in the centre circle, Clarence Seedorf, with all the players around him said, “this is the way to get Deportivo out of the situation it is in.”

He thanked the fans’ behaviour at the end of the match: “The crowd is always with us. They showed they are with us, the acknowledge the team’s work and they’re always there.”

Regarding the away game against Getafe on Wednesday, at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez (7:30 pm, Bein LaLiga), he pointed out “all away games are difficult. Getafe are doing a great season. They’re a very coherent team on the pitch. They concede few goals. They play as a team. There isn’t going to be any easy match from here to the end.”
