Setien ‘satisfied’ despite defeat

Las Palmas Coach Quique Setien was ‘generally satisfied’ with his team despite a 3-2 defeat at relegation rivals Levante.

Setien argued after the final whistle that it wasn’t a poor performance by his side, but admitted they need to be harder to beat.

“We have to be more secure and not give away goals to the opponent. Finding the balance isn’t easy but generally, I’m satisfied,” he said, AS reports.

“They got three goals and we got two. We were even on chances and we had more control of the game.

“Two goals isn’t bad away from home. Their first goal, we were unlucky, and the second came when we were the better side.

“They have fast players and you can’t make mistakes. If you do, you pay dearly, which is what happened. We had a clear chance in the first half but there are things you can’t control.”

Setien also confirmed he expected new faces at the club before the close of the transfer window on February 1.

“We’re going to sign. Vicente’s injury has hurt us and we’ll try to reinforce in midfield. The market gives us that possibility,” he explained.
