JIM: Let’s convert Europa form to Liga

Juan Ignacio Martinez is happy that Levante won their opening Europa League group game tonight and hopes that the form can be replicated in La Liga.

Los Granotes won their opening game in the competition proper tonight 1-0 against Helsingborgs to take top spot in their group.

It was a performance that has Coach JIM both refusing to get carried away, but hopeful that a momentum can be built from it.

“In the Europa League we have been at a very good level and we will try to move it across to the League, which is our daily bread,” he reflected post-match.

“I have heard that we are group leaders, but I do not think about it, we won the game and we are doubly happy because we have made the fans happy, whilst the effort of the players has come in a week with many of them have been in discomfort.

“We are going to compete knowing that the Europa League will be complicated, for the rivals or the circumstances, but we will try to enjoy it without neglecting the attention on the League.”
