Victor: Depor situation not difficult

Victor Sanchez insists Deportivo La Coruna’s situation “isn’t complicated” as a win against Eibar on Saturday would guarantee them survival in La Liga.

Victor’s future at Depor has come under the microscope since Wednesday’s 8-0 home thrashing by Barcelona, despite the Coach only extending his contract in January, with President Tino Fernandez calling a meeting with his playing and coaching staff in wake of the defeat.

“The table is narrowing, but it’s not complicated for us,” he said at a Press conference.

“We have the advantage of relying on ourselves. A victory would give us mathematical survival.

“Reaching 41 points would be definitive, and we’ll look for them at Eibar.

“We believe [Eibar] will be difficult opponents, so we’ll have to apply ourselves a lot.

“For us, this page is turned [referring to the 0-8 against Barca]. We took the beating within our professional pride and, while it hurt, we can’t be distracted by it. We must think about the next game.

“We had a good first half against Barcelona, competing against one of the best teams in recent years, and a very bad second. We want to find the continuity we’re currently lacking over 90 minutes.

“[On his future, the players, coaching staff and I] had a meeting with the President [Tino Fernandez], where he gave us encouragement and raised awareness of the importance of our upcoming games. There’s nothing to comment on.

“[On Lucas Perez travelling to Eibar without having trained], Lucas took a knock to his foot [against Barca], but we understand there won’t be a problem [if he plays].”
