Sandoval delighted with team ethic

Jose Ramon Sandoval expressed his delight with Granada's team ethic in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Getafe in La Liga.

The Andalucians bounced back from their opening-day disappointment thanks to first-half goals from Youssef El-Arabi (penalty) and Isaac Success, despite Angel Lafita's late consolation for the hosts.

“My players' collective game shone in the first half,” the Coach said after the game.

“The important thing was having the three points in our grasp at half-time.

“Getafe were very good in the second half and saw our lead cut, but this team know how to suffer.

“We all struggle from time to time [referring to Vicente Guaita's mistake in the build-up to Success' goal], this is football.

“In our last game, my team struggled and lost. What's clear, however, is that [the goal came from] a brilliant counterattack. We provoked [his mistake].

“In the last 10 minutes, [Getafe] had no chance of scoring. Personally, I hope my team always like they did in the first half because the most important thing was to take all three points.

“In this divison, whoever doesn't know how to suffer is going to find the season difficult because it's a very competitive league.

“There are teams with great potential, and we're still under construction because we have 14 new players.”
