Ronaldo Nazario: Bond between Real Valladolid fans and players key

Real Valladolid president Ronaldo Nazario believes the ‘strong connection between fans and players’ will help the club maintain their top-flight status.

The Blanquivioletas defeated Huesca 1-0 on Sunday to earn their third straight La Liga win to take them up to seventh in the standings.

“There is a strong connection between the fans and the players here,” Ronaldo told reporters, as cited by Diario AS.

“The great atmosphere in the stands is recreated in the dressing room and we feel there is a bond for continual improvement.

“This game contained a lot of pressure because both clubs are promoted and saw this an important match, but our home advantage proved to be the difference.

“Of course, I am happy with this and the current form, to win three games in a row is fantastic and if we continue on this path, we will stay up.

“We played with good control with the Coach and the players on the same page, so we are confident going forward.”
