Francisco: “We have a diverse and versatile team, we’ll see if it gets better”

Francis Rodrigueztechnician Elche CFyesterday presented the traditional press conference before tomorrow’s league premiere Monday (9:30)in the stadium Benito Villamarinin front of Betis. The Franchiverde coach hardly spoke during the entire preparation period and only appeared in public at the beginning of the preparation period. So, as it made sense, Elche was asked to evaluate the squad that the team will face in the 2022-2023 season, the incoming transfers and the targets set for the new route.

Almeria coach, eAre you “happy” with the established team? and regarding the new additions, «cWe found a different right-back profile we were looking for with Pol Lirola. Roger Martí is an experienced player, just as Carlos Clerc and Álex Collado are good football players».

Francis stated “It’s been a tough market and pre-season. At times there were options that we hoped to close that could not be made by the clubs of origin or the players themselves who eventually decided on other sites. But overall, I’m happy with what happened.

The coach of the Elche team did not dare to say whether he has a better roster than last season. «Yes, it’s different and more versatile. Now we need to prove that it is better.“He reminded that last season’s squad fought very well and scored the necessary points to reach the goal. We hope we can achieve that in this campaign”.

One of the things that the Elche coach regrets is that he was not able to get the new additions into service earlier, and the numerous physical problems that a few players had during the month and a half of training: «Any coach likes to have players adapt as soon as possible.. But I am happy. We’ve been able to protect the base since last season and a lot of effort went into that. We didn’t have a routine in the pre-season because there were a lot of injuries and injuries and it wasn’t easy. But this is not an excuse. Those who came and those who stayed were those who wanted to be here, they are the best for me.. We are ready to start the competition,” he said.

Wounded and in pain

As for the injured football players and those who suffer, «We are happy with Boyé because he is responding well and we hope he can join the group next week.. Pastore has two training sessions with the group and it’s going well. The preseason didn’t do as well as we expected, but mentally “El Flaco” is very good. Gonzalo Verdú is also doing well and will be back soon. Y We await your evolution with Raúl Guti. He had a problem on Wednesday and couldn’t train like the others. We’ll see how he fares in the last two training sessions. If it’s not 100%, it won’t travel.

As for the first game against Betis, he commented: “We know how difficult the match will be because they are big opponents and they are playing at home in front of their fans. While they may not be able to save some players, they can take an eleven that will be ready to compete in Europe.. They have top players and it won’t be easy. But we prepared the match well in order to fight well and try to get a good result.

Finally, Francisco wanted to send a thank you message to the fans for their great response to the season ticket campaign, saying, “We all have a very clear purpose and that’s permanence. we know and We appreciate the support you have shown us with over 22,000 subscribers. This is great for a team like ours.. We asked them at the end of last season and they answered. Elche fans are smart, we all know the preseason challenges and I hope we all enjoy it together.”
