Jemez: Rayo played like children

Paco Jemez didn’t hold back in criticising his Rayo Vallecano players for their defeat away to Osasuna.

Wednesday evening saw early goals from Oier and Oriol Riera hand Los Rojillos an early advantage before the quarter-hour mark, before Roberto Torres put the game out of Rayo’s sight.

Miguel Angel de las Cuevas’ second half red card invited the Madrid outfit back into the tie through Alejandro Galvez’s consolation, but it was not enough to prevent their Coach’s temper.

“We said in the dressing room afterwards, we are making mistakes that are improper for this level,” Jemez mused to reporters.

“I see a team of young children competing against a team of adults. Our mistakes are making it complicated to achieve results.

“Until we are more intense and focused, we cannot do anything against any team when we continue to make mistakes.

“This is not the game that we expected and much less in trying to turnaround a result as complicated as that after just 13 minutes.

“Osasuna have made the most of our mistakes. There is only one Rayo, with very clear defects that have costs us dearly and with strength.

“At this time, our mistakes are outweighing our virtues.”
