MADRID, 28 (EUROPA PRESS)
Villarreal’s Argentine goalkeeper, Gerónimo Rulli, has acknowledged that this Wednesday’s duel against Manchester United “is going to be special for everyone”, since against the English team they experienced “the most beautiful moment in the history” of the Castellón club in the last Europa League final, warning that they are “capable of imposing” their game “from minute one” at Old Trafford.
“It will be special for everyone. The last memory against United is a victory for us and the most beautiful moment in the history of Villarreal. It will be a completely different game from a few months ago. We both played a lot. We will go with our idea for the three points at Old Trafford. The final is already behind us, “Rulli said at a press conference.
The goalkeeper explained that Villarreal’s objective is “to compete against any team as equals.” “We will try to impose our game. It has been shown that whether starting as favorites or not, we compete as equals in any field and competition, and this is not going to be the exception,” he warned.
In any case, he stressed that “a very strong team is waiting for them, which has just lost its first Champions League game and is going to want to win at all costs.” “It has the figure of Cristiano, who has not played at Old Trafford in the Champions League for a long time, and there will be many condiments for them to try to achieve victory, but Villarreal will try to impose their game from minute one and I think that we are trained to do it, “he confided.
To score at Old Trafford, the keys will go through “playing a correct game offensively and defensively, being forceful in both areas and competing from minute one to the end.” “We must be aggressive and have personality to impose our game. That way the result we want will arrive,” he said.
Finally, Rulli highlighted the good moment of his team. “The team is doing very well and I am talking about the 25 players that make up the squad. It shows not only in the games, but also in training, that the level is high and we are all capable of competing,” he concluded.
