Levante coach Luis Garcia was delighted with his side’s first victory upon their return to the top flight as they produced an excellent defensive display to defeat Almeria 1-0 on Wednesday evening.
Evergreen midfielder Sergio Gonzalez netted seven minutes before half-time and from that moment on the Valencia club defended with their lives to pick up what could be a precious three points come the end of the season.
A noticeably jubilant Garcia spoke to journalists afterwards about the performance of his team, and he beamed: “We have extended the performance that we offered against Villarreal [in their last league match], I loved the performance of the team and I feel that we have been superior to them.
“We are just winners, and this is the level of performance we want, all we need to do is stretch it a bit further. We have had the first kiss of the bride in the Primera Division, let’s see if we can give more.
“I did not like the first two games of the team, now I am happy with the work of the team, but it is important that we keep our feet on the ground. We must continue scraping all the points that are possible.”
Levante have the small matter of facing Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid this weekend as they look to continue their winning ways.
