The coach of the Real
Valladolid, Sergio
Gonzalez, has warned this Tuesday that he has “few arguments” to maintain his usual tactical scheme, a 4-4-2, since “it has not produced results”, although he has pointed out that “with him the players are comfortable”.

“I do not see that they ask Lopetegui or Marcelino if they change their game scheme but, in the case of Real Valladolid, it will depend on the potential and the performance that the players take out, to go for the three starting points and power adapt to what the meeting holds “, he added.

As he commented at a telematic press conference “the past can no longer be changed, so what you have to do is compete again, show that there is talent, football, ability and that you can be more complete as a team, endure everything the game and clench your teeth in the bad phases. “

“We have to know how to suffer, close the rises of their lateral centers well, their hits at the edge of the area, their tilts and verticalities, because they like to play up, with people like Iñaki Williams, who breaks the spaces, or Villalibre or Sancet, who they know how to get there “, he analyzed.

Without Kenan Kodro for being on loan from Athletic

“I think that, with the fans, the players would have been more active and things would have been different, but I am clear that having an audience now would mean unbalancing equality, at the end of the season in a different way from how it started,” he said. apostilled.

Sergio trusts that, in the Athletic field, the team “believes it more”, because “it is prepared to take a step forward, as there are people with experience, and it must do so”. “That is what makes the difference, knowing how to manage those bad moments in which excess responsibility can take you,” he concluded.
