Luis Enrique admitted his Celta Vigo side ‘deserved’ to beat Real Valladolid on Monday evening.
The Celests beat the Pucela 4-1 yesterday to move up to 10th in the table, with a respectable 43 points.
“It was a good night for us,” he told a Press conference. “A good night for everyone involved with the club.
“We knew it was going to be difficult because they needed the three points, but we were effective in possession and played some nice football.
“I thought we were far superior to them.
“The players deserve every success because they have put so much work in this season.
“It’s been a difficult year, but it seems that now everyone’s forgotten about what happened in November and December.
“It’s a day to praise the players for putting their faith in me and for their ability as professionals.”
