Granada's Juan Antonio Anquela was left fearing for his job after a 1-0 loss to a Real Valladolid side praised for their defending by boss Miroslav Djukic.
“As this is Spain, we are all in danger,”said Anquela, after El Grana's eighth defeat in 13 matches this season. "The first half was more than acceptable but in the second we lacked the confidence to get the points. That’s football.”
“Today’s victory is especially significant as it comes at home," said Djukic. "Our connection with our fans is very important and we have to make our home a fortress. Defensive solidity was the key. The team suffered but never broke down."
