BARCELONA, 5 Oct. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Villarreal CF coach, Unai Emery, praised the “good track record” of the ‘Submarino’ in Europe, where they are first in the group in the Conference League, so they will try to secure the lead this Thursday against FK Austria Vienna.
“We want to become strong at home, every time we have the opportunity we want to enjoy it with them. In Europe the trajectory is good, the joint identification with the fans is high and tomorrow we are going to want to live this”, explained Emery this Wednesday at a press conference .
In this line, the ‘groguet’ coach highlighted the management in the continental competition. “It speeds up before reaching the World Cup, we are going to play many games. Europe is a place that gives us important group management in order to distribute responsibilities between the players. Tomorrow the first objective is to reach 9 points and secure the first put,” he added.
To do so, they must remain undefeated after painfully beating Polish Lech Poznan and Israeli Hapoel Beer Sheva “They were very tough games, with hard-fought victories. Now, against FK Austria Vienna, we try to balance the rival’s ability, in their league now They are not doing well themselves, they have just lost a tie to be in the Europa League against Fenerbahce.
For the duel, Alberto Moreno will return to the call, having recovered from his knee problems. “He is training like what he is, a player who gives us tremendous energy, much loved in the locker room. My idea is to call him up tomorrow and make a progression in his appearances and start getting minutes on the pitch,” he said.
About Manu Trigueros and Pepe Reina, both already train with the group. “In the case of Reina, she has some discomfort that makes her unable to train one hundred percent, but she is very close. With Trigueros we are careful. It is a joy that players are recovering. Juan Foyth and Gerard Moreno are close”, he admitted .
Given the absences, Emery will pull the subsidiary and enter the De la Fuente list. “It gives us that balance of play that we need, especially with Foyth’s injury. In the quarry there is also a responsibility to help us. My idea is to give continuity to the players, and find performance based on confidence and demand,” he added.
