Abelardo: “I’m happy, we played very well and we made arguments to win”

Abelardo Fernández, coach of Sporting de Gijón, was satisfied after drawing in Mendizorroza against Alavés. “I’m happy, we played very well.”


We have had those two actions from set pieces: that of José and Gio, who could change the sign of the game. The party was for that. I leave very happy. We have played very well. Against an opponent I know, on a difficult field. I wish the best for Alavés

How do you rate the draw?

I’m leaving happy. We have continued with that match we played in Eibar. Sporting has made arguments to win. We have read the game well. Both teams look for those transitions. It was a fairly controlled game for us, we had personality. In the end we had the doubt: in any play they can score a goal


They are two clubs that I want. Sporting is my home and I love Alavés very much


Both teams wanted to transit. We didn’t want to lose balls inside. We know what Alavés is like: with Ekain, Rioja… they steal and serve quickly from the outside… The attacks were quite a few passes and without much depth…

Gragera occasion

I did not see her. He was sitting. He didn’t know if he hit the stick or stopped it “Sive”. a pity

Reunion with Alavés

It has been very emotional. I love this club very much. Sporting is something else: I’m from Gijón and it’s my home. Deportivo Alavés has given me a lot. With Alfonso and Sergio my relationship is one of friendship. I met a group that made me enjoy a lot.

We’ll see what happens.

Equality in League

The equality doesn’t surprise me. From First to Second there is a qualitative leap. Any team can beat anyone.
