The coach of RCD Mallorca, Javier Aguirre, has analyzed the team’s league start, highlighting the defensive facet that the squad has shown on the pitch in the first six league games. “I think we are where we should be. I believe that the team defends better than it attacks and we are focused on that, on improving the topic forward, organizational, combinative. Looking for solutions to the problems that come our way, especially at home. To look for a better game, more volume, more fluid, that’s where we are. Defensively, I think we are a team that defends well. We have it very clear. We are supportive. With the ball is where we are all missing a better game.
On the other hand, the Mexican coach has taken stock of the numbers he has achieved with RCD Mallorca since his arrival on the Mallorcan bench last season: «Since we have been here there have been fifteen games: we have won six, we have lost six, and we have drawn three. More balance than that, I don’t know. So it’s a lot for us.”
For Javier Aguirre, effort and dedication are not negotiable and his main objective is to stay in the First Division. «For us, being in the First Division is something very good and people value it. The fans are happy. We are happy. If we are able to maintain the category and if on top of that we demand that we play with the ball better, it would be fantastic. I think that, as I tell my players, The last thing people can demand of us is that we don’t give ourselves up on the pitch. That while I’m here will happen. We will fight to the end, may it cost us blood, sweat and tears, ddefend this t-shirt and make people go home proud of what they see and if it is in First, better ».
Regarding the next League match against FC Barcelona, the RCD Mallorca coach has recognized that “It will be difficult to get a hold of Barça, but we will try”. In addition, the Mexican has been clear about the work that the squad has done so far: “I think we can be calm and with our heads held high, we give what we have. We don’t hold anything back.”
