‘Espanyol want points every game’

Diego Colotto has outlined Espanyol’s primary focus over a busy fixture schedule is to take points from every upcoming game.

The Catalans play four times in the next 15 days, as League action returns and includes an upcoming midweek round.

For Espanyol’s defender, the issue of timetabling is not one that he or his teammates are focused on. 

“For several years there has been this discussion of scheduling, games and other things and it is something that is handed by the television companies and we abide by their decisions,” reflected Colotto on the issue.

“These are 15 days that are very important, with four games, and we intend to go step by step, with the plan to pick up points in each.”

First up in Los Pericos’ run is Granada away for Sunday lunch.

“We want to tru and win there, in a difficult field and against a team that has strengthened well, and who will obviously want to win at home.

“We plan on trying to pick up points in every game and every week, but we are looking no further at the moment because this is the beginning.”

The last time Espanyol travelled out to Granada, they had just appointed Javier Aguirre as Coach.

“The situation was different then, the Coach had just arrived, we were asked to keep a clean sheet, we did, and the team began to work and improve from there.

“It will not be different this time, the team will go in with the same commitment, attitude and discipline.

“We have continued working for the last year with the Coach and have improved in many facets, which we try to translate on to the field.”
