Interview with Mandia

Juan Carlos Mandiá, trainer with Club Deportivo Tenerife takes responsibility for the result in yesterday's game against Numancia. The game was at least equalised in the last ten minutes although he has now had three games with the club and still no win. "We have improved in some areas, but not enough to win a game. The players gave their all in every moment, you can't blame them at all. This is a difficult situation and we all need to keep pulling together. In general lines it was not a bad game".
As well he commented on the fans signalling that  "the people are fantastic, really good, especially as the team has had such bad results. When we were on the last run you really noticed their help”.

On the other side of the field the Frente Blanquiazul didn't appear in their stand during the first half of the match against Numancia.  This was a strike against the way the team are playing.and in the second half they were back in force although they took abuse from the fans around them.

Lastly as a result of the tension during the game, several times the Red Cross were called to help fans with anxiety attacks.


C D Tenerife 1 - 1 Numancia Game notes

Another point brings the total to 2 and still in last place. Slowly the team seems to look like something but a fair referee might just help. A hand ball in the Numancia penalty box wasn't punished and a last man attack on Iriome was just ignored.
The team struggles on and hopes to improve soon.

Marc Bertrán y Carlos Bellvís were the players to talk to the press on Wednesday in the Mundalito press room.
Bertrán stated that everyone should remain calm now. "We shouldn't panic but we need to work harder as right now luck doesn't seem to be on our side. The team is ok,the best they can be all things considered. We need to work together and stick together". When asked about Numancia he commented,"They are a good team. They have a strong groupand I am sure they will be a difficult rival. The key is to find our own identity and play that way".

When asked about Numancia, he stated, "I have many friends playing there and they are a strong rival but we are at home and need the three points. We know we aren't playing well but we need to stick together and believe that we can win this", he concluded.

First point C D Tenerife 1 - 1 Cartageña - Game notes

Perhaps finally the tide has turned. It may have been only one point but the players finally looked more like a team and less like a selection of men lost off a  sea wreck.
Chances were certainly available and with a little luck the team should have scored more goals.  Next week they play Barcelona B away and Barcelona rates CDT highly as it is in their top price range for seat prices.
Interesting to see 3 ex-Tenerife players in the opposing team (Longas, Toni Moral & Clavero.)

The sixth round of the  Liga Adelante second division, in the Rodríguez López with 16.145 spectators. On a very warm afternoon.


Mandia's first game

Mandiá was quoted as saying this week, that the players needed to  run themselves to death, be brave and calm.  Above all they needed not to let the other side score early. The trainer from Lugo also stated that the group should be generous, as this is needed when a team struggles.
When asked about Cartageña he commented "This is a complicated rival. They were strong last year and have reinforced their lines so this year they are more dangerous. That said we should know how to play them over the ninety minutes".

When asked about the team generally he said, "in the few days I have been here it is difficult to make a full assessment. We think they are good players and we are demanding everything of them. They need to make a big effort because at this level everything is very close and the team can still do well. I need them to give one hundred percent of themselves and I am looking for the best qualities in each player. We can win by playing the best we can. Although I have no ability to say anything to the fans right now if we just show we can make a great effort then I am sure they will be on our side. I want to forget about the five losses because what counts right now is what we do from today onwards”. He also mentioned how he had spent hours this week talking to the players. That he understood how they felt and hoped that things will come together as there is no pre-season for them together.
The game is on Sunday at 5pm in the Heliodoro and
