Athletic Bilbao climbed out of the relegation zone with a tough fought 2-1 win away to Celta Vigo with the Basque boss calling for his side not to pull the foot off the gas.
Gaizka Garitano, coach of Athletic Club, assessed his side were deserving of the win.
“We needed this victory, we won in a difficult field making a very solvent match, we are happy but we have to keep winning, we do not have to lower the piston,” said the Basque coach at the conclusion of the crash. He was quoted by Faro de Vigo.
“When you’re in this situation, it’s complicated to be solvent, you do not have that looseness that gives you some more points, but we still managed the game well and we won a deserved win,” he said.
The Athletic coach congratulated the good reaction of his players after the Celta levelled in the first half.
“In these situations, what we can not do is to lower our arms when something bad happens to us, I will not let them lower their arms, we have recovered well, we have scored the second goal and then we have defended well,” he explained.
“More than Beltran, we were more concerned about stopping Okay and Lobotka , who are the Celta players who get the ball well, we have been good, we have stolen balls, but it has been difficult for us to choose in the last step. and we are going to enjoy it. “
