Emery: Tiredness not an excuse

Sevilla boss Unai Emery has insisted that his team have 'no excuses' as they prepare to face Rayo Vallecano today.

The Andalusian side played Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey semi-final on Thursday, but the 41-year-old has claimed that his side have to be prepared for a tough match at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

“There are no excuses,” he told a Press conference. “We have had three days’ rest, and now my payers have to be prepares.

“We will need to play at a high level if we want to win this game.

“This is a match that requires a lot of attention from ourselves. We will go into this game as if we were facing Real Madrid or Barcelona.”
