It could have been more says Lendoiro

Deportivo de La Coruna President Augusto Cesar Lendoiro said Real Madrid could have scored more than the five they put past his team.

Lendoiro also asserted that Depor are not in the sameLeague as Jose Mourinho’s men and claimed the game was all over at half-time.

“At the end of the first half it was obvious that it was difficult for us to maintain that level but this is not the League we are playing in. The scoreline could have been worse than 5-1 but you can’t argue that Madrid did not deserve their victory,” he told assembled reporters.

“We now have some very difficult matches coming up but we don’t get bored of playing against these monsters of international football [Real Madrid and Barcelona], who are the two best teams in the world.”

On the subject of whether La Liga is a two-team competition, Lendoiro admitted Madrid and Barca are superior but feels there are other teams that have the potential to break the duopoly.

“There are some very good teams in Spain yet when you talk about it being a two-team League then maybe that is normal, but it would be the same if they were in any other European League.

“Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia and Malaga are all very good sides but the difference is obvious. Right now Madrid and Barca are from another galaxy,” said Lendoiro, who also set out Depor’s aims for the remainder of the season.

“We will try to play good football, enjoy it as much as possible and try not to encounter too much trouble.

“If we can get into the European places then so much the better but it will be tough as there are a lot of teams who are very evenly matched.”
