‘Eibar an example for La Real’

Eusebio Sacristan believes Real Sociedad need to be more like Eibar if they wish climb up La Liga ahead of Sunday’s Basque derby.

The former Barcelona B Coach has suffered defeats in his last two matches after making a winning start against Sevilla a fortnight ago, and he looked up to Jose Luis Mendilibar’s high-fliers as an example for his side to adopt.

“Eibar are a team who play to their strengths,” he said at a Press conference.

“They’ve picked up more points than us and have left good feelings in their matches, while we have many things to improve on if we want their consistency levels.

“Still, I see my team in good shape, excited and hoping to get back to winning ways.”
