Jemez: I like what I saw

Rayo Vallecano Coach Paco Jemez declared himself very happy with his side’s Madrid derby win over Getafe on Sunday.

Rayo won the game through an Alberto Bueno goal and while they remain the bottom three, Jemez was pleased with what he saw.

“What I saw on the field I liked,” Jemez told reporters post-match.

“We’ve improved and a week of intense work is paying off.

“We’ve kept a clean sheet and it’s a breath of fresh air. But if we want to continue doing well we have to go to Elche and win.

“Victories are always welcome but we are still in the relegation zone.

“But I hope we can continue like this. I want the team to play good football and win games.”

Jemez admitted however that in the second-half of the game the team switched to a more direct style, something with which he was unhappy but he declined to criticise the squad.

“The players have the ability to do better than that, but today their decisions were good.

“Raul Baena had to give balance to the side and he’s settled in well.

“He’s a very cool player, always in the right position and we looked good with him and Roberto Trashorras in midfield.”

Jemez also rejected the need for signings in what remains of the winter transfer window, pointing to the good performance of the team against Getafe.

“The team has shown there is no need to bring in anyone.

“If I had €10m given to me I’d be asking for signings but I knew the situation at Rayo when I joined.

“We’ve got to work hard. I know where I am, what I can demand and what I will receive.”
