What is more clear. The Pitu Abelardo was most clear in his presentation at society as the new coach of Espanyol, the third of this season because the team does not give foot with ball, now five points off the drop when it reaches the equator of LaLiga. And he did it with a comparison. “This is like the phrase of Luis Aragones, when he said: “win, Win, and win, and win again”. As it now is the same thing, but compete, compete and compete and re-compete”. That is the goal of the technical, as folksy as the natural, so confident in the green future of the Village.

Dress in a suit and with a shaven head completely, Abelard appeared with a smile in the press room, with messages azuzadores and faith intact. “It is a difficult challenge, but it can get. If not, I would not have come. The template you want to change it, and I've found a very good group, predisposed” is started. And he offered his formula: “My way of working is to live in the present and the day-to-day. The important thing is to regain that trust of the players, that have a huge quality, and many of them showed last year to get into Europe.” A recipe that explained, it's not much secret: “My goal and my promise is to work. I wish I could promise results. But it is not. Now you live in a situation similar to that of 2004, which was able to leave –with the goal of Corominas on the horn in front of the Royal-Society, and hopefully you now also be so. With hard work and effort to reach the results. This is a game. I promise that we will be competitive and that my players are going to leave the skin”.
Understand Abelard, who has already been in borderline situations with Sporting and Alavés, there is no other that the union of the costumes, also the connection with the crowd. “We have to engage the fans, who come to enjoy. But we must convey those wanting to be with us”, she resolved. And he added: “we must reverse this situation. It's about working hard because I'm confident in the coaching staff, the club and I love this challenge.”
"I'm Not worried about no signings"
Precisely, it seems odd that she would accept the Espanyol and not the Leganés few months ago, which by then was not far from in a situation that is so uncomfortable. “Well, as I am somewhat masochistic. But I loved the challenge. When I decided not to continue in the Alavs, I said that there would train in the summer. And so it was. I have that feeling like at the right time. And this offer came to me in the right”, he argued. And he added: “Now we are as we are, but it is a great club, with a history of spectacular. It is a historical club, with these facilities as good. It is desirable for any coach, I know the city, I have friends here....Clear that I wanted to. I feel privileged, honoured and proud to coach this team. When Espanyol called me, I didn't think twice.”
Debut Abelard against Barcelona, where he played from 1994 to 2002. “I will try to win with all my desire. I have always demonstrated my professionalism. That I promise. There is No more. Since I caught the Espanyol I am your biggest fan, the number one of the partners”, he blurted; “and against the club, for nothing, to win. It is not a brown but a blessing to play in this competition. We will win, that's for sure”. Not even concerned about possible reinforcements from Espanyol, focused on a midfielder, a winger and a striker. “I have not spoken of signings with the direction of the sport. I'm encantadísimo with the template that I have and try to pull it out forward. If they come in and improve what's there, perfect. If not, I am not concerned for nothing. I am confident in my template. What I want is that the team is competitive and the people vibrate”. Because Abelard, for the moment, leave him at the accounts: “there Are 20 matches and we have a handicap of five points. As there will be a comeback. There is No other”. Work ahead, you have.
