Only a win against Getafe on Saturday will do for Pepe Mel if he is to stay on as Deportivo La Coruna Coach.

Depor boss Mel on possibly being sacked after the game: “No-one has to explain to me what’ll happen if Depor draw with Getafe.

“It’s like this. When a Coach is questioned, they’ll keep questioning him at the drop of a hat.

“It changes with results. If you keep winning, you get to the summer.”

Getafe boss Jose Bordalas on a lack of patience among La Liga Presidents: “It’s my perception.

“I don’t know if there’s such haste in La Liga, but there’s been very few games played and I don’t think there’s any reason for it.

“There will be lots of changes in the table, everyone wants to stay up and everyone wants to be here.”
