Zaragoza’s job ‘half-done’

Manolo Jimenez has reminded his Real Zaragoza players that their Copa del Rey tie with Levante is only halfway through.

Carlos Aranda’s goal decided the first leg in the visitors’ favour on Thursday evening, but for Jimenez, caution was the post-match message.

“Half the job is done, but the other half is still left to do and is against a great team like Levante,” the Coach warned his players at full-time.

“We have worked well in the beginning of the game and we have had our chances, before they then tightened a little, until the end, with that great goal from Aranda, we have gotten the win.

“The return leg will be difficult because they are a tough opponent away from home. We have taken an important win here, but not a definitive one.

“We have done 50 per cent of our job.”
