Villarreal coach Javi Calleja was very satisfied with the work put in my his men in the spectacular goal bonanza against Almería in the second leg of the last-32 Copa del Rey match (8-0). "We played a perfect match from the beginning to the end. We did what we had to until the 90th minute. We didn't relax at any moment. We didn't put the result or qualifying for the next round in any doubt," he commented.

For Calleja, it was all happiness: "I am happy because we had a lot to lose and little to win. I think every match we are improving, and the scoreboard reflects that. Every player had a magnificent game."

The boss also made a special mention for the spectacular performance of Karl Toko Ekambi, who scored four of the eight Yellows goals: "Toko Ekambi scored four goals that will definitely give him confidence. It was proven that we have the ability in front of goal, but we needed to show it."

To conclude, Calleja was ambitious looking ahead to the future: "We want to get as far as possible in every competition. We wanted to get to the next round and we have done. We have three finals left in 2018, and we are going to work hard to get three wins."
