In a La Liga contest that ended before, Villarreal beat Alaves 3-1 at home, sweeping away the haze of the previous tragic loss to Barcelona.
After the game, Villarreal coach Emery attended the post-match press conference.
"Even if there are some tactical changes, the overall thinking will not change. The players are used to controlling the ball. We sacrificed Chukwuze, who has the ability to fight alone, and increased our support for the center forward. Our player reserve is very large. Rich, so I can use the three-midfield system to give full play to their strengths. I am very satisfied with the players’ performance."
"Playing Atletico is not the same as playing Alaves. Atletico Madrid has to be at a higher level. We did not perform at a high level against Barcelona. I am very disappointed, but I hope to play against Atletico Madrid. Do it. We always try to get our opponents into our rhythm and take away three points."
"I like that everyone scores goals. Wing players come to score a few, and defenders also come to score a few. Of course, for them, scoring is a sideline, and for the center forward, scoring is the main business. So in order to do this One point, players in other positions have to send a lot of threatening passes to feed them, and we are doing this now. Even if Paco and Moreno scored not so wonderful today, I am happy for them."
"Mario is a player who has entered the national team. Although he entered the form late this year due to an illness, I am very confident in him. Today Mario found his own space and I am very happy for him. I I prefer to give more encouragement and support to players who are not in the best condition, because those who play well have the support and admiration of the world."
"I am satisfied with Kubo's performance, he can be competent in multiple positions. Kubo is a player who can bring a lot to the team, playing well does not mean scoring goals and assists. For me, The overall performance of the players on the court is the most important."
"I talked to Lava, and he also knows his situation very well. There are four players who are ahead of him in the same position, and for him there is only another way out."
