Aguirre disappointed with draw

Javier Aguirre was disappointed with Espanyol’s performance in drawing 2-2 with Rayo Vallecano last night.

Christian Stuani gave Espanyol the lead after only three minutes but Iago Falque levelled before half-time. Joaquin Larrivey put Rayo in front shortly after the break but Diego Colotto scored a late equaliser.

“Hopefully we finish the League well with a better performance than we have given today,” Marca reports Aguirre said after the match.

“[The goals conceded] were preventable and the result of bad decisions.

“It was a strange game because we could have gone in at half-time 3-0 up, and then we could have conceded three.

“It wasn’t our best game. We didn’t win the ball back well. I don’t know if it was down to fatigue.

“We had no confidence on the ball and for most of the game we didn’t have possession.”

Aguirre at least took heart from Espanyol’s late comeback which, he said, displayed their determination.

“The team didn’t give up and fought until the whistle,” he added.
