Girona vs Athletic Club: Coaches and players react to draw at Montilivi

Girona head coach Míchel spoke to DAZN after his side’s 1-1 draw with Athletic Club on Monday.

“I think it was a great point. Athletic are a great team […] We lost against [Real] Madrid, but Athletic are the side that made it most difficult for us in our build-up.

In quotes picked up by Marca, he also highlighted Pablo Torre, adding: “he is a very important player for us, who will give us a lot”, and later explained that in-form striker Artem Dovbyk is doubtful for the game against Valencia due to a calf injury.

Iñaki Williams’ thoughts

“We are looking at the European places. That’s our objective, that’s what we set ourselves at the start of the season.

“We came to the home of the leaders, which wasn’t going to be easy, but even so, we played very well. We had some very clear chances, we didn’t lose our heads at any point and we enjoyed ourselves on the pitch.”

Eric García on draw

“We’re frustrated and that’s a good thing. We were playing to stay in the lead, but we let them score,” said Girona defender Eric García.

“This feeling speaks of our mentality. On Saturday we have another game at home. Just when we scored the goal we fell behind and that’s not our strong point.”
