Portugalete - Betis: Rubi on Aleñá: "What he said was certain without ill intent" - SPANISH FOOTBALL 1

Joan Francesc Ferrer Rubi, coach of Betis valued the previous match of the copero that on Saturday plays Portugalete against the Basque club. “The team has trained with the same intensity of a league match. It is a different encounter to the usual ones and from the first moment we have to be focused, go for the playoff, that we do not get long and there are compromised situations. We want to pass as it may and we must adapt to different situations, the dimensions of the field and so on,” said the Catalan trainer.

Rotations. “There will be fewer rotations than before the Antonian. If we pass the playoff we will give it the same importance, against the Real and the next playoff. Nothing has been moved from the club, we all have it assumed. We do not see non-important matches in official competition. You have to fight to the fullest and get as high as possible.”

Attitude. “The attitude of my players doesn’t worry me at all. I’m sure we’ll be out to the fulland and wanting to pass. We’re squeezing them from day one for it. They compete to defend our shield, try to win minutes or stay as headlines. We want to be able to move the idea of game in a smaller field, in front of an opponent with the overflowing illusion and who is making a good campaign.”

Aleñá problem on Twitter. “I haven’t even heard the words. I’ve been informed from the communication sab. As I am lucky enough to meet the player, I am sure that what I have done has been without any kind of ill intent. Sometimes statements are put in a way that you seem to say something else. Networks multiply that by a hundred percent. He caught me by surprise, he didn’t even know it. I don’t have Twitter or anything like that because people from anonymity take advantage to say things that can hurt you.”

Victor Sanchez of the Master. “You have to have maximum respect for people’s privacy. He has little, I want to show my support for him and his family. There are always bad people trying to use people, little more to add, just give them encouragement.”

Carvalho. “The expectations are the ones I said last week, which at the end of the month may be available if there is no setback in its evolution. He’s done physical work, he’s been in the rounds… it still fits, but things are going well.”

Signing of Guido Pizarro. “There are two people from the club working to see if the onboarding occurs. That’s what I know, in the end I’m informed when I get out, if it comes out.”
