Imanol: A final between Real Sociedad and Athletic would be very nice
Real Sociedad reached the Copa del Rey final on Wednesday night and La Real boss Imanol Alguacil hopes that they meet Athletic Club, who play Granada on Thursday.
The Basque side eliminated Mirandes 3-1 on aggregate and will have to wait to find out their rivals after the end of the other semi-final between Gaizka Garitano’s side and Granada.
«Surely I want Athletic [in the final] because it would be very nice for the Basque country,» Imanol told the press conference.
«I also like Diego [Martinez]’s Granada for what they are doing in the league, but a Basque final would be very nice.»
The Real Sociedad coach went on to express his feelings after leading his team to their first final in 32 years.
«It is very difficult to explain in words how one feels after reaching a final after so many years,» Imanol continued.
«We have had an amazing cup run, winning all the games.
«I want to thank everyone who has supported us.
«The most important thing is the final.
«Our responsibility is to win that final and I will not be calm until we win it and do something important in LaLiga.
«This is the year and we deserve it.
«The best is yet to come.»
After the referee’s final whistle, cameras caught Imanol celebrating on his own in the centre of the pitch.
«It is a sense of pride,» he noted.
«I have cried.
«I have remembered many people; my family, the staff that suffer with me.
«I was there seeing how the players enjoyed what we have achieved.»
