During the press conference on the eve of the first leg of the Champions League Danny Parego Talk about the daunting challenge ahead Villarreal.
The yellow submarine succeeded in sinking Juventus led by Massimiliano Allegri in the second round and then also sank in the barge Bayern Munich. Two eliminations surprised many, but not the Spanish midfielder, who said:
“We are facing a semi-final against an opponent who is probably in a better shape. After eliminating two high-ranking teams like Juventus and Bayern, we got there with great enthusiasm and confidence.
Last year’s path in the European League, this year’s path in the Champions League kept us quiet. We have excellent personalities but the experience against Juventus and Bayern made us grow, we understood how to play against similar teams.
We made history last year by winning our first European title and this year by reaching the Champions League semi-finals in the club’s history. It is not casual. When so much is achieved in a few years, it cannot be a coincidence.”
