translated from Spanish: Pellegrini: «Claudio understands that right now he can’t play»

Manuel Pellegrini, technical director of Real Betis, analyzed his squad’s big 3-2 win over Deportivo Alavés, after losing 2-0.Following yesterday’s engagement, Pellegrini stated at a press conference that «no doubt the team is confident in what it does, it doesn’t mess with the adverse score, perhaps as it was a while ago , when normally losing 2-0, we lost 4-0, because everyone wanted to make the most of it on their own.» On the check-up, the «engineer» stated that «it was a pretty special match, where the first half didn’t reflect at all what was going on on the field, we had bad fortune.» Halftime was essential, first because the people who came in from the bank, came in very well. Second, because we don’t play with the scoreboard on our heads, but we try to create the opportunities to turn the score with clear plays,» he complemented. On the other hand, he raised that «for different reasons an initial eleven is starting and there are important named players on the bench.» What I do see is a tremendous commitment from the players, whatever it’s like to come in from, or whatever it’s like to stay in the bank. We have two players of importance, for their ability, for their trajectory, for their leadership, such as Claudio Bravo and Joaquín,» he added. Pellegrini held on to the goalkeeper and the attacker that «they are the first two who are demanding the group, the first to be on top of the rest. So in that respect, I think we have a good idea to try to make a campaign as best as possible.» Finally, he felt that «Claudio fully understands that at this moment he cannot play, but the important thing is that they do not lower their arms or walk in a bad mood, nor do they think that they are indispensable, conversely, they demand a lot that he is playing.» It should be remembered that Bravo lost ownership in the last commitments, after overcoming a rebellious muscle injury. Real Betis, sixth in the table with 42 points, will visit Seville next Sunday, March 14, at 5 p.m., in a new edition of the Andalusian classic.
