Schuster: This is a good time for us

Bernd Schuster conceded that ‘this is a good time for us’ after his Malaga side beat Granada 4-1 on Sunday.

The Costa del Sol outfit defeated their Andalusian opponents in convincing fashion on Sunday afternoon.

And the German Coach admitted that his men have been in good form going into the season’s final stretch.

“Even though we were 2-0 up in the first half, I still thought we’d have an uphill struggle,” he told a Press conference.

“Particularly when Granada were awarded a penalty. I don’t think Riki’s injury went in our favour either, as I believe Piti is a much more dangerous player, causing us a lot of problems throughout the match. 

“This is a good time for us, and we’ve been waiting to get a great result like this for several weeks now. 

“Although we’ve won our last three away games, losing to Real Madrid here was tough, and we didn’t get the right result against Espanyol. 

“However, today’s victory is so important, not only because we were up against a direct rival with the same number of points, but we needed to boost our confidence and believe in ourselves. 

“We can’t stop now, and really must maintain this standard of play for the remainder of the season. 

“We still need more points, but today’s win has done wonders for team morale.

“We’re getting closer to our objective of staying in the elite, but there’s still a way to go. 

“I’m thrilled with today’s win in front of our home crowd, as our fans haven’t seen us win here for some time. 

“We need to maintain this winning streak in order to gain peace of mind.”
