Gracia wants ‘serious’ Copa challenge

Osasuna boss Javi Gracia has urged his men to take the Copa del Rey ‘seriously’ as they prepare to play Malaga.

The Rojillos travel to La Rosaleda on Sunday to play the Costa del Sol outfit, and the Coach has claimed that his men can’t have their heads on the League.

“The cup is an opportunity to try and do things,” he told a Press conference. “We want to try and get as far as possible.

“I might try and give a few players who have played less minutes a chance, but we have to take this challenge seriously.

“On the one hand we want to continue doing the right things, which we have been doing. But on the other, we have to improve results.

“We are all working hard, and we deserve to be rewarded for that.”
