Guerra: Rayo not panicking

Javi Guerra insists Rayo Vallecano aren’t panicking despite a slow start to the season that has left them with one point from three games.

Guerra debuted in Monday’s 3-1 home defeat against Deportivo La Coruna and is eager to start scoring after leaving Cardiff City.

“There’s only been three rounds and this is just the beginning. We have to forget about Monday as it’s not coming back, learn and try to improve because this team has the conditions for it,” he said, Marca reports.

“We have to go to Las Palmas to win. That would be very good. They’re a rival, let’s say, in our League, and are going to make it difficult if we want to win.

“A striker always requires goals and I want to do all I can. I want work, create chances and I’m sure I will score because I have for every team I’ve been at.

“Rayo’s style of play creates chances for the forwards so I want to adapt and bring my game to the team.

“My debut was sad because I want things to go well, win and play a good game and that didn’t happen. Now I’m already thinking about the next game.

“The team is sad because we wanted to play well and get three points. It would have given us more confidence in what we do and the style we want to maintain this season.”
