‘Espanyol focused against Sporting’

Espanyol Coach Constantin Galca wants his side to stay ‘focused’ when going to Sporting Gijon.

The relegation rivals meet at El Molinon and Galca told a Press conference of the need for his players to be on their game throughout.

“It’s important to be ambitious and to think about winning the game. It’s a very complicated place to go,” he said, AS reports.

“The Sporting fans push you and we have to stay focused for the whole game.”

Galca was asked if the next month will decide his side’s top-flight future but replied in the negative, despite a run of fixtures against teams around the drop zone.

“We play a direct rival, but no. We have to fight and fight every game,” he continued.

“We just think of Sporting, concentrate on that and nothing else. Then we’ll think of Real Betis and Rayo Vallecano.”
