Jemez warns against complacency

Rayo Vallecano boss Paco Jemez has warned his players against complacency after their impressive start to the season.

The Franjirrojos currently sit in seventh place in La Liga having won nine of their first 18 League game.

But the 42-year-old Coach has claimed that his players can't take their foot off the gas as they go into tomorrow's match with Athletic Bilbao.

“I am worried that my players are too relaxed,” he told a Press conference. “But my job is to make sure that doesn't happen.

“We still have a lot to achieve – in fact, we haven't achieved anything yet. We have the possibility of winning four straight matches, and that's something that we haven't done yet.

“We want to finish the season in the highest position possible, and that continues to motivate us. If we relax, we are fools.

“Athletic are not at their best at the moment, but they are always a good team at home. I expect a very difficult game.”

He then commented on Los Leones' San Mames stadium, which is to be knocked down at the end of the season.

“Despite being one of the oldest stadiums in Spain, it is one of the most beautiful. It is shame that this is going to be the last time we can play there.

“The stadium has something special – every player loves playing there.”
