Granada boss Joaquin Caparros said he was hurt by the 4-0 Copa del Rey defeat to Andalusian neighbours Sevilla on Wednesday.
Caparros’ side crashed out of the tournament 6-1 on aggregate, a Kevin Gameiro brace and strikes from Iago Aspas and Denis Suarez making it a comfortable night for Unai Emery’s men, and he admitted he was smarting from the defeat.
“We can’t hide from anyone because nobody likes to lose 4-0 and we must now prepare for the next game. I know of no other way,” he told reporters.
“The truth is that this was always going to be a difficult tie yet after our display against Real Sociedad at the weekend we wanted to kick on.
“But we were playing against a team of the highest calibre and although we worked to create chances you cannot be weak at this level.
“We now need to focus and break this bad run we are on. There is still one game left in the first round of League fixtures with the whole of the second half of the season still to come.
“We have to trust in ourselves and get ready for the next game,” he added.
