Llorente confident of avoiding drop

Osasuna forward Joseba Llorente is confident his side can escape relegation, despite a 1-0 home loss to Valencia yesterday.

Roberto Soldado gave Los Che their first win under new boss Ernesto Valverde, but the 33-year-old believes his team are capable of climbing the table.

“The situation is not as chaotic as it was a month ago,” he told terra.es. “Because then no one saw the light.

“We are in a fight and we have to clear ourselves from it as soon as possible. We have to grapple right until the end.

“Yesterday, Valencia scored when they had the chance – but we cannot despair about that. They took the three points, but we must forget about that and move on.”
