Escriba proud even in defeat

Fran Escriba was proud of his Elche team despite losing 1-0 to Granada on Saturday afternoon.

The Franjiverdes went down to El Grana in a close encounter at Los Carmenes, but even in defeat, the Coach was happy with his side’s performance.

“I’m disappointed with the result but I’m certainly proud of these players,” he told a Press conference.

“I thought we competed well in both halves and controlled the game at times.

“We certainly dominated midfield and can come away with a lot of positives.

“We may not have won, but I’m happy with my boys.”
