Jimenez: Defeat was painful

Real Zaraogza boss Manolo Jimenez has described his side's 3-2 defeat to Deportivo as 'painful'.

The Blanquillos let slip a 2-1 lead to let themselves drop to within one point of the relegation places.

And the 49-year-old has admitted that it was tough to see his team go down the way they did.

“It was a painful defeat,” he told a Press conference. “We try hard and controlled the match at 2-1.

“But we made two errors and let in two goals. That has killed us.

“We played a very good first half, but the third goal we let in was an incredible blow.

“Deportivo were not superior to us in any area.”
