‘Rayo will show it can compete’

Rayo Vallecano boss Paco Jemez has claimed that his side will prove that they can compete in Primera Division.

The Franjirrojos play Levante on Friday evening, but after last weekend’s 5-0 loss to Atletico Madrid, the Coach wants his men to show what they can do.

“When something happens like last week, it’s probably good thing that we’re playing first on a Friday,” he told a Press conference.

“Everyone is waiting to show that last time was just an accident. I’m sure we’ll show that we can compete.

“I do not regret what I said about my players, but I know we have the best team for the budget we have.

“I’m proud of this team. We’re a good side and can be competitive in this League.

“For me it is an honour to be in charge. Sooner or later we’re going to give a lot of joy to these fans.

“I have a lot of respect for [Levante Coach Joaquin] Caparros. He always puts together decent teams.

“They’ll make it uncomfortable for us. They will want to win their first game of the season, so we’ll have to be ready.”
