Clarence Seedorf insists Deportivo La Coruna ‘won’t give up for as long as we can save ourselves’, despite staying adrift with a 0-0 draw at Leganes.
Depor’s failure to make their early dominance count against Leganes left them 18th in La Liga, six points behind Levante, who will move further clear if they beat Athletic Bilbao on Monday night.
Nonetheless, Seedorf told reporters after a fourth game unbeaten: “Mathematics says that anything is possible.
“I’m focused on the Barcelona game. We’ve drawn here and it’s another point against a good team. Coming to play against Lega is very difficult.
“They’re very dynamic and very organised. It’s easier to play against Atletico or other teams. Leganes bite for 90 minutes.
“We controlled the first few minutes and could’ve scored twice, but they were better than us in the second half.
“I’m not going to change anything, you have to balance everything out and respect your opponents, although I’m still motivated because the group are giving out positivity.
“I’m satisfied with the work of my players. We showed ambition, and the reason we didn’t get more from the game was due to Leganes.
“We’re not going to give up for as long as we can mathematically save ourselves. We’re still very much alive.”
