Rubi: ‘I think that we were better in the second half’

The head coach does not want his squad to forget about ‘humility and work’ to strengthen the good team dynamics


Rubi knew the reason why UD Almería were able to achieve a new victory, the fourth in a row, in a closely contested game played at El Molinon. ‘I think that we were better in the second half,’ recognised when reflecting on the win during the post-Sporting presser.

Despite the Catalan acknowledged that nil-nil could have also been the final result due to the fact that the Rojiblancos scored in the last play of the clash, the Indálicos team head coach pointed out that his players knew how to impose their style of play within a ‘tactical battle.’ Then, he added: ‘The feeling I had in the second half is that we played the game as we actually wanted.’

UD Almería are strengthening their lead kin the competition week after week, however Rubi sent a clear message as he is fully aware of the characteristics of LaLiga SmartBank: ‘Humility and work is all I want from my team as there’s a long way to go and because there are great teams in this league.’
