Ruben Pardo has reflected that Real Sociedad must push forward in their upcoming fixtures to try and end a winless run of eight games.
Domestically and in Europe La Real have not won since the end of August and face tough trips in the next few days to Valencia and then Manchester United.
For their up and coming midfielder, though, now is the time to push on with belief in what they can do.
“The team is mentally prepared for what will be important games,” Pardo has told reporters this week.
“We must take a step forward and go all out for these games. It is true that the team has had a poor run of results, but now we have to think about Saturday’s game against Valencia, which is very important.
“I believe we will do everything to bring the three points back home. Valencia are a great team that will be fighting for the top positions.
“But if we are right, we will give them a lot of trouble. In recent years we have returned with a victory from there, let’s go for it.”
