The coach of C.D. Leganés Mehdi Nafti talked this Monday after the end of the match against the U.D. Las Palmas at Gran Canaria Stadium, corresponding match of the thirty-three gameweek. 

The trainer analyzes the match,, “ It is a hard defeat against a good rival. If I need to put a but, is that after the 1-0 we needed to stop the match a little bit. But after a center from the lateral they tied the match after a loss and a penalty, they hit us again and we went to half time with a 3-1. On the second time, we need to risk a little bit more, always with two forwards. I’d love that we could provoke them a couple of risky plays, after the 3-2 at the moment they make us the 4-2. It is a hard defeat for us, we need to think about the next match. 

Nafti believes that, “one positive thing is that these players never give up, we knew that at Las Palmas we were going to have some opportunities, it was a thing of making the second goal. The lads entering the field  has helped us and add on to the match, we appreciate the effort. This is a defeat after a long streak, and there is nothing left to congratulate the rival and work for the victory against Fuenlabrada.

“I´d would like to see more intensity with the 0-1, but I keep the bottle half complete and I appreciate the players to not give up”

For the Franco-tunesian coach, “we started the match being more intense and aggressive in due to 2-1. I´d like to see more intensity with the 0-1, we have reacted but with the scoreboard against us and a rival as Las Palmas that wears you down, it is complicated. We will analyze and work but I keep the bottle half complete and I appreciate the players to not give up”.

At last, the pepinero trainer assured that since the moment he has been on the bench the team “has a mentality of never observing the classification table. Our only interest is to look at the next rival, and since this moment it has been very positive so I do not think that the dynamic will change.
