Bernd Schuster has admitted that Malaga’s only objective for the rest of the season is to stay in the top flight.
The Costa del Sol outfit lost 3-0 Athletic Bilbao on Monday, putting them in 11th place with 38 points.
But the German Coach has claimed that his team are still in a relegation battle.
“Athletic didn’t have too many problems in trying to take control of the game tonight,” he briefly told reporters after the game.
“One team competed well, the other didn’t, and that’s where the difference lies.
“Our goal is to secure our place in the First Division mathematically.
“That will be sufficient for us.”
