‘Rayo desperately needed that win’

Joaquin Larrivey has conceded that whilst Rayo Vallecano ‘desperately needed’ their weekend win at Celta Vigo, they were also fully deserving.

The Madrid outfit picked up a surprise 2-0 result at Balaidos in Week 13, made concrete with a second-half effort from their Argentine striker.

“The truth is that we desperately needed the win,” conceded Larrivey to his club’s official website this week.

“I am glad to have contributed my chase from the bench and am happy for everything. Honestly we were deserving of it and we did not give anything away.

“In Vigo we played a very complete game and although at first we struggled, we then did things very well, we gave away little in defence, we created a number of chances and took our chances well.

“Paco Jemez’s words of support? Sometimes it is difficult for a striker when he does not play, but the fact is that whenever I have, I have given my all and that is what Paco has asked.

“I imagine that he is happy with me because I always give everything in every game, every training session and try to contribute where I can.”
