They are always difficult to count on. and there we have them. We have to stay the same, we have not achieved anything and we have to continue adding, we have no choice, “Moreno said at a press conference.

I’m happy for the stage because we needed it and now let’s see if we continue along this line. Fans and team together, and we push together. Because if we go together – it will not be easy – but we will have many more options to win the games, “he warned.

The attendance of the people has been noticed, they wanted to win and they have infected the team. That’s where we started. To win the game, we give it a lot of value because we have not been able to achieve it for a long time, but we are down to earth because there are only three points, “said Moreno.

Depending on what the game forces you to do, I thought we could even do better. They have generated and They have demanded of us even doing it well and in that time we had to reduce it by having more of the ball, “he analyzed.

It neither surprises me nor does it stop surprising that he goes, but we are talking about a player of a high level. If he proposes it there is no end, he has no ceiling. Let’s see if he continues along that line and gives us many joys this season, “he concluded.
