JIM: I’m responsible for relegation

Juan Ignacio Martinez has apologised to the Real Valladolid fans after his side were relegated to the Segunda.

The Pucela lost 1-0 to Granada on Sunday, meaning that they finished the season in 19th place with 36 points.

“I am responsible for this,” the Coach told a Press conference. “I was convinced we were going to stay in the League.

“But it just wasn’t to be. I have to accept the criticism that will come my way. But we’ll go down with our heads held high.

“We played a great game and deserved something more from the match.”
