‘Smoke damaging for everyone’

Luis Enrique admitted that the smoke canister that temporarily suspended Celta Vigo’s win over Villarreal was ‘damaging for everyone’.

The Celestes won 2-0 at El Madrigal last night, but the main talking point was the 20 minute suspension of the match after the canister found its way on the pitch.

“It’s damaging for everyone,” he told a Press conference. “It’s an isolated incident that tarnishes the game.

“Luckily no one’s been seriously hurt, but I have never experienced anything like that. This sort of thing shouldn’t happen at football.

“It was an important win for us though. In the first half Villarreal were better than us and probably deserved to win.

“But we had faith in ourselves and got the reward in the end.”
