Real Zaragoza boss Manolo Jimenez has claimed that his team's 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao was 'deserved'.
Goals from Apono and Helder Postiga gave the Blanquillos the three points at San Mames, and the 48-year-old Coach has admitted that his men were worthy winners.
“It was a very important victory for us,” he told a Press conference. “We worked hard against a tough team at a great stadium.
“Everyone played their part – closing down spaces and hitting Athletic on the counter-attack.”
