Emery after aggressive, creative Sevilla

Unai Emery made clear his philosophy for Sevilla and refused to criticise them for drawing with Malaga on Sunday night.

Los Nervionenses recorded a 2-2 draw at home to Bernd Schuster’s team, having shown a particular vulnerability to counter-attacking.

Even so, their Coach refused to criticise Sevilla, nor compare the goals conceded with previous mistakes made against opponents.

“The Atletico and Slask games are different to this one [against Malaga],” argued Emery post-match.

“The first game was a more closed game whilst against Slask we were more productive and able to create more than the opponent and for our proposal we deserved to win.

“We had 3-2 with a legal goal but we were kept level at 2-2 and did not have enough. The opponent’s counter-attacks were dangerous and they generated two goals.

“Our attack-defence balance should be more level and on Thursday we did not suffer from those. Here, yes we have, but we must continue along this line.

“We have raised a proposal to create, to go for the win and to search out our opponent. From this proposal we have adjusted things and improved.

“I want a more aggressive and creative team, because nobody says that if we defend more we will win.

“It is something that is not negotiable and we have discussed it a lot – we want to win, be aggressive and be better prepared for knockbacks.”
