Jimenez: Sevilla’s Loss To Deportivo La Coruna Is Not A Disaster

26345_newsAfter seeing his side go down 1-0 to Deportivo La Coruna, Sevilla boss Manolo Jimenez was keen to add some perspective to the result.

Speaking to Marca after the game, he said, “We were clear that we would to be champions by beating Madrid, and we are not going to be relegated after losing to Depor.”

“Deportivo have earned five straight wins. Juan Rodriguez played out of his skin.

“I am happy that they treated us as a big team. We were not wise.

“We spent more time in their half, but they played on the counter and ran a lot.”

Jimenez also dismissed suggestions that Sevilla had missed Luis Fabiano, stating, “Everyone has things to improve on.”

“The rotations worked well, and we put in a good performance.”
