‘Granada counting on individuals’

Lucas Alcaraz insists Granada are counting on “their invididual talent to help the team” when they take on Sporting Gijon in La Liga on Saturday.

Alcaraz began his third spell in charge of Granada with a heavy 7-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid last weekend, but he felt there were positives to be drawn from the result.

“I want my players to help the team with their individual talent and not get lost in individual plays,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“It’s difficult to know how the game will pan out, although I predict Sporting will be a team that will try to make as least errors as possible and be close-knit because they have players who can break quickly.

“Against Atletico, we had passages when we had the ball, but we need to build on them.

“If we’re okay mentally and do good things then we’re more likely to win.

“It’s a special game for many reasons, so the fans deserve a happy day on the pitch.

“We know it’ll be difficult for us because when you're on a losing run, football gives you nothing, but we’re willing to make every effort to make the fans go home happy because they more than deserve it.”
