Montanier: Malaga were tired

Philippe Montanier admits that he and his Real Sociedad players picked up that Malaga were tired in Saturday night’s match.

La Real ran out surprise winners at La Rosaleda for a first away win in the League since mid-January. The result also relieves some tension for the Coach, who had not won in the last four.

“We played well. It is true that Malaga have played a lot of games, one very difficult one in Milan. We have played a good game and noticed that Malaga were also a little tired,” Montanier remarked afterwards.

“We needed a win. The most important thing is the team, not me. The attacking set-up and its players worked. I like to play well.

“We had the right attitude and concentration for 90 minutes. The team has maintained a high level. Today, we found that little bit that we had lacked in other games to win.

“The victory is important after 10 months without an away win. I hope it’s the start of a great run.”
