In what was his debut game in LaLiga, Celta Vigo coach Antonio Mohamed believes his side still have work to do following their 1-1 draw against Espanyol.
It was also a debut for visiting coach Rubi who faces the challenge of building on last season’s 11th place finish.
Mario Hermoso put Espanyol ahead just before half-time with a shot from inside the area following a corner.
Although it didn’t take long for Celta to peg the visitors back as defender David Lopez’s attempted clearance flew into his own net.
Mohamed cannot help but feel his men have missed an opportunity and perhaps should have taken more from the game.
“The team had the ability to go and look for the match, we had two clear plays to be able to win it, we made the effort, but it happens to us as it did against Mainz.
“We played very well in the opening 35 minutes and then the intensity halts because of the goal, however the team knew how to overcome that adversity and ended up making a good game, although we still have a long way to go to achieve what we want “.
Despite the frustration of a draw, the Argentine felt he learnt a lot about his team and loved every single minute of it.
“It’s a very competitive league, every game has a high degree of difficulty,” he analysed. “On a personal level I am in a dream, on a job level as well.
“We do not neglect any detail, anyone can make a difference, I am clear about that, and I have gained a lot of knowledge about the rivals after the first day.
“Many of them have changed coaches and play differently, which gives me the chance to continue learning and learning, in the meantime I am happy to have made my debut in this league and I hope to stay for a long time.”
