"I apologize on behalf of the group" - Mubarak Wakaso

Ghanaian midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has rendered an unqualified apology to the supporters of Granada following their home 3-1 loss to Valencia over the weekend and assured them they will fight until the last game of the La Liga season.

Wakaso Mubarak does not want to give up yet to Granada after his defeat against Granada because in his opinion "there are still possibilities" to remain in the First Division.

"Now we have another home game in which we have to fight for the three points but we can not give the facilities we gave in yesterday's game (against Valencia)," he said.

The international midfielder with Ghana stressed that the effectiveness of both teams in the first 45 minutes could decide the game: "In the first part we had 3-4 chances to score our first goal, they get their two goals soon and then we tried to do something But we can not. This is part of football but we have to fight to the end."

Questioned about why the team has defended so badly despite the improvement in the previous meeting played at Riazor, Wakaso responded that "we changed how to play against Deportivo. The other day we played with a 4-4-2 and today with a 4-3-3. It's very different."

On the other hand, about Ezequiel Ponce commented that in the locker room "he asked for forgiveness of all" and stressed that "we are a team, we are with him, we have to leave this case behind and fight for our goal. I can also ask for forgiveness from the group. "

Wakaso did not want to delve into a hypothetical continuity in the Grenada during the next campaign and only declared that this matter would have to speak "to end of season. I do not know if the club wants to continue or not and that we will have to speak at the end of the season. Right now I'm happy here, with good people, in a good club and I see that there are good people in the locker room and outside the locker room. "
