‘Santi Mina is a rough diamond’

Luis Enrique praised young striker Santi Mina after the 18-year-old scored the only goal in Celta Vigo’s 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao.

The teenager netted in the 71st minute as the Celestes claimed a narrow victory against their Liga rivals in the Copa del Rey.

“Santi is a rough diamond,” he told a Press conference. “He’s very hungry to do well and is craving to play.

“It wasn’t only him who did well though – all the boys played their part in the win.

“We’re satisfied with the win, but anyone could win this after the second leg.

“It’s just a shame that this win couldn’t give us three points in the League!”
