The coach of Granada, Aitor Karanka, explained the “tranquility” that he has to see his team compete to trust in achieving permanence next Sunday in the last day of LaLiga Santander, despite the defeat (2-0) against the Betis.

“I have seen them well. Maintaining that state of concentration is difficult. We have had a clear chance to draw and the team has never given up. Players who have not played in a long time have given everything. A month ago when we arrived the team was sunk physically and psychologically,” he told a news conference.

The coach of the Andalusians trusted in a week they have to prepare for the game against Espanyol and, depending on themselves, achieve permanence. “We have a week to prepare for the game, without cards and we play it at home,” he said.

“We are much better than a month ago, the peace of mind is seeing the team how it competes, a month ago it did not compete. They are not satisfied because we could have been free at the last minute, but they are much more satisfied with the image of the team. Since we’ve been here they’ve been giving everything,” he concluded.
