The Cordoba CF is every time closer to being promoted to the First RFEF and so it has reflected German Crespo in the press room after the victory against CF Villanovense (2-0). The clash, within the festive atmosphere, ended with some tension in the locker room tunnel between both teams, a situation that the coach explained. «They were a little stung by the previous statements, but I have spoken with the person I was referring tothe physical trainer. The boy has come to apologize to me for the gesture and their captain has gone into the subject a bit, the defeat has made him feel bad but there is no need to think about it anymore because everything stays in the field», he warned.

Regarding the possible promotion, Crespo reviewed that they gave “a big step” for everything to be finished. “I have told the players, we had to forget about what could happen tomorrow and focus on our game». In addition, another of the objectives was to “win to equalize the difference in goals conceded”, although he would have liked to “make a few more goals”. In any case, he ended up “happy because the first goal of trying to make a full at home is a little closer with six points to go” and they are already “waiting for what may happen tomorrow.

Manolillo’s debut and De las Cuevas’ 100 matches

During the game the left side made his debut manolillo. «We were going to make only the change of Viedma, but it is a price for the two years he has been working and the year spent with me». The Cordovan “has had the opportunity”, since «The boy, both on a sporting level and as a person, who is charming, I am glad that he had the opportunity to debut and in a duel like today, “he said.

On the approach of Extremadura, Crespo was surprised by what was seen on the green. «All teams come to El Arcángel the same. We had been working all week on a possible approach seeing them 4-4-2 since they changed coaches. We have found three central defenders and two lanes », he pointed out. However, he commented that “More than Villanovense’s demerit, it has been our merit” and highlighted “the game inside and between the lines.”

The coach took advantage of the situation to congratulate Miguel of the Caves to fulfill 100 games with the blanquiverde elastic. “I congratulate you and It is a pleasure for me to see him on the field. I wish I could have another 100 more. His injuries are respecting him in this second round and when he came out he lacked that competitive rhythm and he contributed. He now has that speed and confidence and it has been seen with the great game he has made today. You have to congratulate him and hopefully he has the luck to enjoy it much longer, “he added.

Looking ahead to next Saturday Merida You will be able to count on more troops than those that appeared for this week. «The sanctioned will be able to be, but in the end you see that in the line that the team comes, today they leave Visus and Bernardo Cruz and they play a very complete game. Crespo is “lucky to have the squad we have, whoever plays leaves everything on the pitch. For next week’s game, being able to count on the entire block says a lot »declared.

The idea to follow Montijo-Cacereno is “to see it all together but if it happens it would be ugly if we were each in our own house”. On Monday, in principle, there will be rest and he regretted not having been able to “enjoy or promote with this environment”, although “they will all be together to be able to celebrate it from the final whistle”. Because he, in his case, has asked his players to “at least enjoy it like me because it has been very complicated,” he concluded.
