Fabricio craves Depor safety

Deportivo la Coruna goalkeeper Fabricio is eyeing safety with the Galicians and says talk of relegation ‘frightens’ him.

The Galicians are currently one point above the drop zone, level on 25 points with Levante, but the 27-year-old insists it is something he does not like to think about.

“I don’t like the idea of relegation and it’s a word that is not even mentioned in our dressing room,” he told reporters.

“I dread the thought of it and it frightens me. I’m afraid of pronouncing the word. Each of us has a clear objective and we knew it would be difficult to stay up because we were a newly-promoted team.

“However, we mustn’t lose our heads and must keeping doing what we have been doing. That will be the key. We can’t be afraid and have to be firm in our resolve and the way we approach matches.”

The Las Palmas-born player, who has a contract at Riazor until June 2016, insists his continuity is not a priority at this stage of the season.

“The main thing is that we achieve top-flight safety and all our futures depend on that. There are a lot of things the club would not be able to face up to if we went down to La Segunda.

“We need to reduce the debt as soon as possible and the players have to give their all to stay in this League, which is paramount, and after that the first step will be to sit down and talk about a new agreement.

“This is my home and I wish I could stay for another 35 years,” declared Fabricio.
