Resino demands intensity from Celta Vigo

New Celta Vigo coach Abel Resino has said the club's players must show more competitive spirit and intensity between now and the end of the season if they want to remain in the Primera Division.

Resino, 53, takes charge with the Galicians 18th in the table, four points from safety, despite winning plaudits for their passing football.

Vigo have managed only two points from their last five games and, after taking his first training session on Tuesday, Resino told reporters that all small clubs needed to battle all the way way through games, even if they had some talented players.

"Celta has a very good squad, but we need to make another step, to be more competitive," he explained. "I am convinced that, if we achieve that as soon as possible, we will be in La Primera next season.

"That is why this is a difficult challenge but a nice one. We must be a much more competitive team, more intense for the full 90 minutes of each game. That is something absolutely indispensable - without that, a small team cannot compete in the Primera Division."

Resino coached Granada last season, taking charge in January and leading the club to survival on the final day, only for the club to decide not to renew his contract.

His first game as Celta boss comes against Granada, currently in the group of teams just above the drop zone.

However, Resino rejected a reporter's suggestion that the game was already a "must win", saying: "It is clearly a very important game, and we all know that.

"Granada are an opponent similar to us, but it is not a final. We cannot say that if we lose the game we all have to just up and leave. It is important game, but the final is when there are no more games left."

Resino, a former Atletico and Rayo Vallecano goalkeeper, had hoped to appoint his ex-Atleti team-mate Salva Ballesta as his No. 2.

However Celta president Carlos Mourino decided against the idea after protests from fans who disapproved of Ballesta's strongly nationalist political views.

Resino said the matter was now closed, adding: "That is a decision taken by the club.

"I have spoken with Slava, and the matter has been cleared up. There is nothing else to say. If we keep talking about that, we will not be focused on Granada."

The coach also paid tribute to his predecessor Paco Herrera, who led the Galicians to promotion from La Segunda last season.

The new coach said Celta's players were as much to blame for the team's current perilous situation as Herrera.

"They must take their part of the blame," he said. "Of course Paco has his own part, but no more than he should. I know he is a good professional, and the players also need to stand up. It is not always the coaches who are to blame."
