PRIMERA MATCH REPORT

Primera Week 25 - 24 Feb 2013 (14.00 UK)
2 - 2 Valencia
Estadio de La Romareda

Ernesto Valverde conceded that his side could have easily lost against Real Zaragoza, but Manolo Jimenez was more worried about the refereeing.

Los Che came from behind to draw with the Blanquillos at La Romareda, but the 49-year-old admitted that the game could have gone either way.

“It was an intense game right from the first minute,” he told a Press conference. “We did not do too well early on – conceding a penalty and then another goal. But we came back.

“We feel like we could have lost, but we also feel like we could have won. It was that sort of match.”

The home team Coach though, believes that the officials could have cost his team a point.

“If I talk they'll hurt us even more,” he told a Press conference. “There were some clear decisions that weren't given, and they could have damaged us.

“I have to praise Helder Postiga though. He was sensational today. It needs to be highlighted how good he was.”
