‘Getafe need strong mentality’

Fran Escriba cited the need for a ‘strong mentality’ to arrest Getafe’s slump after a heavy defeat at Las Palmas.

El Geta fell to a 4-0 defeat against their relegation rivals, their strength straight reverse and had Alvaro Pereira sent off on debut, a factor cited by Escriba.

“There was no game after that. I’m very disappointed because I expected to win,” he said, AS reports.

“The team is in very bad form. There are small differences, and if you let go of them a little, you lose and can even lose heavily.

“We have to be strong mentally, train more and try to reverse the situation. It’s my duty to be optimistic and I see options to win against Sevilla on Saturday.”
