Borja Viguera maintains he is not worried about Athletic Bilbao’s situation despite the Basques hovering just three points above the relegation zone.
Los Leones closed the first half of the 2014-15 campaign having scored 15 goals, their worst total since the 1984-85 season when they mustered just 12, yet the 27-year-old striker maintains there is no cause for alarm at San Mames.
“We are all aware we’ve not had a good first half to the season but there is still time to fix things. In the dressing room we have complete trust in ourselves,” Viguera [pictured, right] told a Press conference.
“At the moment there is a negativity in the team and that’s something we must change, to turn it into a positive, and we must reverse things as we did at the start of the season following the international break and a game against Real Madrid.”
Viguera, signed from Alaves before the start of the season, also asked for the support of the Bilbao fans and the need for them to be patient.
“We’ve got to be relaxed about things as we have players who are very capable of scoring goals, but I’m sure the supporters will be with us.
“I went through something very similar last year [at Alaves] and I know how important it is for the fans and the team to bond in these situations. When everyone is together it’s much easier.”
