‘Rayo do their best to win’

Diego Llorente insists the Rayo Vallecano squad are putting in maximum effort but results continue to go against them.

AS note Rayo are now 10 games without a win, seven in the League and three in the Copa del Rey, and the last time they went on a comparable run, in the 2002-03 season, a 13-game winless streak saw them relegated.

“The team does its best to win and if the game is fair, sooner or later there’ll be a victory because those who follow us every game will see we give everything and present a good image,” Llorente is quoted as saying.

“We have to [take the point against Valencia] to start the [second half of the season] and the next game, at home with the support of our fans, we have to get a victory.”
