The players talk of their happiness after the game against Xerez

At the end of the CD Tenerife-Xerez CD game, the faces of the local players reflected the happiness they felt at the victory and the fact for the first time this season the team was out of the relegation positions. The players to attend the press were goal scorers Pablo Sicilia & Antonio Hidalgo, as well as Richie Kitoko who played for the first time in the Heliodoro.

Sicilia: “The fans were great. We need to thank them for all their help. We suffered but we are going home happy. The feeling in the team is different today. We are improving. Again we were better. At the start of the game there weren't many chances but towards the end it was different. Who scored isn't important. What counts is that we gained three more points. The best thing is the happy faces of my collegues in the dressing room. Not only are we out of relegation but we are getting better”.

Hidalgo: “Today is a day to enjoy. But we need to carry on adding points as we are seriously short. The team is recovering feelings and points which finally is what counts. We are on a good run. We know what counts is that we win more games. But anyway the league is very even this year and any rival is difficult. Right now we seem batter able to read how we play each game. Xerez has been on of the best teams to pass through the island this year and with victories like this on things look different, better”.

Kitoko: “I am really happy we won and how we played. The most important thing though are the three points. We can't thank the fans enough for their support. We need to keep going the way we are. Right now we are becoming a strong team who gets the respect of every rival and we can go anywhere and win. We received their gaol really quickly and this changed the way we played. It made us compete right to the last second. Our rivals now know that CD Tenerife is better than before”.
