Gaizka Garitano has appeared at a press conference prior to the last training Athletic Club before the match tomorrow (Son Moix, 10 pm) will face RCD Mallorca in the fourth matchday of La Liga Santander. The red-and-white coach has shown his respect to a rival recently reached the category, but which has come after two seasons of success: ‘They have been winning for 24 months and that gives you confidence in what you do. They have a winning dynamic and that’s very important. It’s not easy to get two consecutive promotions. They beat Eibar, lost to Real and the other day, despite losing, they played very well against Valencia and gave a great image. Like all Primera teams, we’re going to have difficulties, but we’re going with the intention of playing a good game and winning. We’re optimistic because we’ve been working well all week‘.

The red-and-white coach, who has pointed out that the starting eleven ‘logically, it will be quite similar” to the one of the last day, believes that the break of a week in the competition has not interrupted the good start of the team: ‘After the breaks we tend to start well. But beyond that, we have our line and we always try to maintain a balance, both when we are up and down. We started well, but the competition will put us in our place as the days go by‘.
