Levante boss Juan Ignacio Martinez called his team’s Europa League win over Motherwell ‘historic’ but is now thinking only of La Liga.
Los Granotes overcame the Scottish Premier League outfit 1-0 at the Ciutat de Valencia to record a 3-0 aggregate win and move into the group stages of the competition, with new signing Theofanis Gekas getting his first goal for the club.
Martinez put out a strong side for the game, despite the comfortable first-leg advantage, and recognised how important it was for Levante’s debut in European competition.
“It was a historic day for Levante and we carried a great responsibility, but in the end it was a fair result against opponents who were well organised,” he told a Press conference.
“This shows that La Liga was a success for us last season and we have endorsed that.
“However, although we have also accomplished something important economically, the only thing I am thinking of now is Sunday’s game with Espanyol.”
