Villarreal midfielder Rubén Gracia Calmache, 'Cani', explained at the press conference that, even though the team improved in the second half of the match against Huesca, the team still has learn from the mistakes made in the first half. "I have to say that we didn't play that well against Huesca. We did just enough, but we should run more and be more organised, and in order for us to improve, we must be self-critical, so it doesn't happen again. We were better in the second half, because we started to run more. When you win, things always feel differently. The environment or your standings, but it wouldn't change the fact that we performed poorly during the first half".
However, as the former Zaragoza midfielder pointed out, as important it is to be self-critical – it is also important to be patient as well, because we have not even played ten matches yet. "We are at the beginning. The season is very long, and those who thought that we would have won all the games by now are very wrong. It's a tough league, but we are confident that we will reach our goal – but that doesn't make it easy. We need to have patience and faith in ourselves. I know that the team has the quality and ability to reach the goal, but we will have to work very hard for it."
As for how the team is playing, Cani said that the team is having difficulties sometimes when they are ahead of the rivals. "Normally, you will play better when you are in the lead, but sometimes it's also the other way around. We have only lost one game, and we are making it difficult for every team to compete against us. The only thing we have to change right now is working on how to take advantage of the lead in every game. If we are leading, we cannot start defending, we have to keep playing the game and finish it in order to secure the win. If we start doing this, we will also play with more self-confidence."
