Diego Martínez referred at the post-match press conference to his scuffle with Unai Emery, with whom he embraced before the start of the meeting at La Cerámica. The Nasrid coach downplayed the fact: “Football is tension and what happens on the field stays on the field. From my point of view it does not matter. We are both competitive, football is tension, each one fights for his own. Unfortunately, maybe on camera it looks worse than it really is and we don’t give it more importance ”.
Regarding the game itself, the Galician coach did not miss the opportunity to congratulate his players once again: “First of all, congratulations to the team. We were facing a great rival and we managed to overcome many adversities in the match from today. The concentration of the team has been very high. Regardless of the sending off and the penalties, the team has done a formidable job. I would like to keep the goals of Soldado and Kenedy and having played a game to deserve this point ”.
The point added against Villarreal gives Granada 28 at the end of the first round, a new record. And this, achieved with more wear and tear than anyone. “We are a very modest team, very humble, we have improved the first round of last year with 28 points, also doing it with three competitions. We don’t have the budget or the squad that other teams have, we are the First team that has played the most official games this year. That reflects what has been seen in the field. Regardless of the circumstances, we always go forward, we never complain. If we lack Gonalons, another player comes out. If they give us a penalty against us, we try to stop it. You have to put a lot of value on what the team has done. We have fulfilled the game plan very well. It has a lot of merit, a lot of value, it is a very important point. 28 points with three competitions in tow, which is very exciting but for us it is a brutal demand. It is extraordinary what these players have done ”.
