Real Oviedo midfielder Gastón Brugman appeared before the media today, as the team went back to work at El Requexón.
After the disappointment of yesterday's match against Girona, the Uruguayan admitted that "I don't know if it was the hardest defeat of the season, but it was the most difficult one to swallow. Less than 24 hours have passed and we still have a bitter taste due to the result. We weren't at the races for the first twenty minutes, but we finished very well. We prepared to play with a high press, but Girona are a good team and the start was difficult for us. After the change in formation and going back to our normal way of playing, the match started to go more in our favour, and we had several opportunities to get a point at a difficult ground."
Regarding how yesterday's match will affect the squad's daily work, Gastón believes that "there are moments in which everything goes well for you and others in which it's hard. We've just had two straight defeats, but the team is still alive and we are going to fight to the end."
Los Azules will have an opportunity to make amends next weekend when Real Valladolid visit the Carlos Tartiere. Discussing the encounter, the midfielder highlighted that "it's a crucial match and we are going to give our best and go out there to win. We have been trying to move closer to the playoffs for a month now and the team has earnt the right to fight to the end. Our objective is clear, we know what it is. Now it's time to think about Valladolid. We are going to fight to the end."
Finally, asked about his feelings on an individual level and his future at the club, the Uruguayan stated that "I'm happy with the season I've had, although in this recent period I've not had the consistency I would have liked. I hope that better times are coming. I'm not thinking about next year. I'm just thinking about this here, there's a long way to go."
