Coman spoke after the victory over Rayo Vallecano about the performance of his compatriot, “We need de Jong, we want the midfielders to be more aggressive in attack.”
He added, “He has a lot of technical quality and helps us in depth. We spoke with him to help in the attack and score more than one goal per season.”
“Now he is more integrated than Ajax, he creates and scores more,” he added.
“We played a good game, the opponent performed well, but we created more chances,” the Dutchman said.
“We dealt well after being late in the result and we scored more goals, but the most important thing is to qualify.”
He continued, “There was a penalty that we did not get, we played well and complicated things.”
And he concluded about facing Athletic Bilbao in the league next Sunday: “When you win, do not feel tired, the results give you confidence, and we will be good on Sunday.”
