Jemez: Get rid of everyone!

Paco Jemez launched a scathing attack on his Las Palmas players after their 2-0 defeat to Villarreal, suggesting the club should “get rid of everyone”.

Las Palmas slumped to their sixth game without a win and fell four points adrift of safety after Villarreal won through late Carlos Bacca and Nicola Sansone goals, drawing the ire of their Coach once more.

“When you don’t play like a Primera team, everything goes wrong,” he said after the match.

“It was a real disaster in every way, with things that I thought had passed but reappeared.

“I’ll try to think that it was just a very bad day, but it can’t be repeated. If it is, we’re dead.

“I appreciate that Villarreal are Villarreal, but there was a huge difference in pace between the two teams.

“Everything failed, we didn’t do anything right. We weren’t able to keep the ball for even half a second.

“They looked like they were flying on a plane, while we had our legs tied. We got worse with every touch. It was real chaos out there.

“If they had money and time, they’d have a reason to get rid of everyone here, me being the first, and bring in 24 new faces.

“We weren’t up to scratch today, but there’s no remedy. If I have to promote eight of the B team then I will, even though I’d be very sorry for them because they’ve played a lot.”
