Enrique: La Real are superior to us

Luis Enrique says he considers Saturday’s opponents Real Sociedad are superior to his own Celta Vigo side.

The Galicians travel to Anoeta for tomorrow’s game having picked up three away victories on their travels so far this term, and Enrique believes it will be an open game.

“I think the match will be an attractive one for the supporters because of the style of play of both teams and possession of the ball is going to be one of the keys.

“Real Sociedad are a team that is on a superior level to us. At the end of the season they are going to be up there fighting for the European places.”

Enrique has been under fire from the local Press this week for holding training sessions behind closed doors, yet had a simple explanation.

“I didn’t want to give our opponents any kind of advantage,” he told reporters.

The former Barcelona B and Roma boss has been boosted by the return of defenders Jon Aurtenetxe and Gustavo Cabral after injury, who he says “are both in the squad and ready to play”.

However, captain Borja Oubina is out with a fractured toe while Mario Bermejo, David Rodriguez, Jonathan Vila and Carlos Bellvis have all been omitted for technical reasons.
