Lendoiro refuses to panic at Depor

Deportivo de La Coruna President Augusto Cesar Lendoiro insists he is refusing to push the panic button at Riazor.

The Galicians suffered a 2-1 loss at Rayo Vallecano at the weekend to leave Jose Luis Oltra’s men third-bottom with just one win to their name all season, the opening La Liga game against Osasuna.

Nonetheless, Lendoiro acknowledges it is still early days and insists he is fully behind Oltra, while maintaining the team had a hard task last week against Real Madrid and no luck against Rayo.

“It’s only the beginning of the season so let’s not complicate things,” he told Marca. “We must forget the Real Madrid game while we did not get what we deserved against Rayo.

“We cannot do anything but congratulate the opposition but I think we should have earned at least a draw.”

Even so, it does not get any easier for Depor as after the international break they face Barcelona at home before the short trip to Balaidos to take on Celta Vigo in the Galician derby.

“There are some difficult games coming up but it’s the same for everyone. We have to make sure we convert Riazor into our talisman but we know it’s going to be tough.

“Hopefully we will be able to lift our heads up pretty soon,” he added.
