Calleja: “The Copa del Rey motivates us”

The Manager assures that his side have a lot of “respect” for cup rivals Ponferradina

In today’s press conference, the Villarreal CF Manager, Javi Calleja, assured that the Submarine are approaching their first cup game with maximum excitement and respect for opponents SD Ponferradina in the first leg of the Round of 32 of the Copa del Rey. “We love the cup and it motivates us. We have high hopes to go far in the tournament and we are going to fight for that”, Calleja commented. 

For Calleja, the fact that SD Ponferradina play in the Second Division B should not lessen his side’s level of concentration: “We face this cup tie with the same respect as the other competitions. Ponferradina are a team that have players that can compete to a high level. It’s true that they’re not going through a great spell at the moment, but player for player they’re good footballers”.
