Pedro Mosquera stated in Abegondo's press room this morning that during Cristobal Parralo’s first days in charge, “We're working on many things we needed. Everything he’s doing is very positive. And it’s reflected in the last games. We want more.”

The Coruña midfielder believes that the new coach “is totally integrated. The first weeks were a bit odd, with one match after the other, with Copa del Rey in the middle and with very little time to work. Now we have more time to work. He is adapting really well. The coaching staff are totally integrated, and we’re delighted.”

He explained that the Branquiazul coach “detects our needs both with and without the ball really well, and he is conveying it very well. He gives us intensive training sessions where he conveys his personality, a strong one, which is what we need. In that sense, the team is developing a lot.”

Mosquera is convinced that, despite the defeat against Atletico de Madrid by one goal in stoppage time, Dépor came out feeling stronger “because of the sensations we had on the pitch. It was a good game. We played them one-on-one, a team which is one of the best in Europe. When the fans see that we give our all, when they see the team is at a good level, they support us regardless, they always have done and always will. Thank them for having given us an ovation, even though we lost.”

Along these lines, he believes that “a communion between the team and fans will lead us to a very good season.”

Regarding the injury that kept him side-lined for some weeks, Pedro highlighted, “I’ve been training with the group for weeks. I don’t have any pain. In that sense, I’m very happy.”

He described Sunday’s game in Malaga (12 pm, Bein LaLiga) as “crucial. They're a direct rival that aren’t going through a good moment. We have the option of distancing ourselves by 10 points and the goal average, and in Primera Division that’s a lot of points. With the matches we have left, a 10-point difference with a rival is super important.”

Pedro is looking forward to the end of the international break, and “going to Malaga and displaying all the good sensations we’ve had these past few matches. Go there and try to beat Malaga whichever way possible and try to bring three points home.”
