Joseba Etxeberria: “We need to produce a solid and complete performance to win”

The coach stressed that “if Eibar play well then we can beat anyone”

Eibar coach Joseba Etxeberria held a press conference on Thursday and insisted that his team “need to produce a solid and complete performance to win”.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s clash at Ipurua (21:00 CET) against Levante UD, the coach of Los Armeros pointed out that “if Eibar play well then we can beat anyone”.

 

JOSEBA ETXEBERRIA’S PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES

“We know how much equality there is in this division, so teams can have good or bad runs. We just had a run of 10 games undefeated, but now after losing you can say that we’ve gone three games without winning.”

“It has been a different kind of week since we weren’t used to losing. We need to reset.”

“In those last few games, there were good moments in attack and defence, even if we didn’t win.”

“I think in the past two games Eibar have had two good first halves and two weaker second halves. We need to produce a solid and complete performance to win. We know that if Eibar play well then we can beat anyone.”

“Levante may be in a difficult run, but they had some injuries and they have a great squad. We have to be prepared.”

“We are clear that we want to have an attacking mindset. Our room for improvement as a team might lie in being stronger defensively, but we can’t lose the other side either. The most important thing is to win, and I’d rather win 3-2 than 1-0. Some may disagree, but that’s how I think.”

“It might be a cliché, but I think we need to go week by week. We’re approaching Christmas and the midway point of the competition, and I think then you can start to look at the groupings in the table. We want to put ourselves in a good position for the final two months of the competition.”
