Julen Lopetegui, Sevilla coach, appreciated the preview of this Sunday’s match in San Sebastián against Real Sociedad. The Gipuzkoan praised the rival: “We are at the start of the season and we are going to have a very strong team in front of us. We will have to play a great game to win. La Real has grown exponentially during these years with a good mix of national and international players from other countries”.
Loss of the Real. “Real Sociedad has a large squad and I’m sure it will have alternatives to David Silva. It will put up a team of great quality and renowned players. In addition, it has a subsidiary in the Second Division.”
Realistic past. “As a child I was a fan of Real Sociedad and it is always in my heart but now I am a professional and my heart is white and red, we defend the interests of Sevilla one hundred percent”.
Ownerships. “Since there are five changes, those that start at the beginning are as important as those that leave later. Lamela and everyone is focused and at my disposal. In each game we will decide what is the best to compete at that moment.”
Salzburg. “The Champions League game is prehistoric for us, that’s already in the past. We are focused on an opponent who is going to demand a lot from us.”
Koundé. “We have to wait until tomorrow. The important thing is to have a large staff. Jules has trained, he’s going to travel with us and we’ll see what we decide before the game. ”
