Galca: Our mentality must change

‘It’s not a record we’re proud of’ – Howe on Bournemouth losing run to Man City

Espanyol coach Constantin Galca feels that his team needs to up their intensity if they are to get a result from their upcoming match against Celta Vigo.

The Periquitos are coming off a 2-1 defeat to 19th-placed Levante, and despite the fact that they are unlikely to be relegated, Galca feels that a change in mindset is needed if they are to avoid getting themselves into a dangerous situation.

"We didn't play a good game against Levante," Galca said in his pre-match press conference. "We thought we could win but there are games were you don't play well and you can't reach the objective. Let's see what happens [against Celta].

"Celta are a good team. They're daring in possession but they also leave spaces, so let's take advantage of that.

"Our mentality has to change. They have to fight for something more and take as much as possible from each game.

"We can't expect to be in a critical situation, currently we're not, but how we lost to Levante is a problem."

On the topic of his future at the club and the possibility of it hinging on the result against visiting Celta, Galca was dismissive.

"That's not a question for me, you have to talk to the directors. I will fight until the last day and for the club. I will be professional and not think about it," he said.
