‘Alaves must change dynamic’

Mauricio Pellegrino believes Saturday’s trip to Osasuna provides Alaves with the perfect opportunity to “change” their losing dynamic.

Last weekend’s 4-1 defeat to Real Madrid was Alaves’ third defeat in four games, which leaves them just a point above La Liga’s relegation zone going into the match in nearby Pamplona.

“This match is important for us to change our line of results in recent games and the image we gave of ourselves in our last outing,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“We want to show a better image to the fans that are coming to support us. Every week we compete better.

“It was clear that we wouldn’t have many good times this season, but except for Anoeta, I think we’ve competed in every game.

“My sending-off against Madrid? Although I didn’t expect to be sent off, I’ll fulfil the suspension as it’s the logical thing to do. We’ll find a way to communicate.”
