Raúl García “The Team Has Done Everything To Get The Three Points”
Raúl García’s second half penalty rescued a point for Athletic as the Lions played Celta to a 1-1 draw at San Mamés on Sunday night. While the point is valuable, the result felt more like a loss because Athletic were dominant throughout the full 90 minutes. The Basques had multiple chances to score goals but struggled to finish chances.
“The team has done everything we had to do to get the three points but it didn’t happen,” Raúl García told Athletic TV after the match. Athletic put in one of the best performances of the season but the result didn’t reflect the way the Zurigorri dominated the match against Celta.
Since joining Athletic in 2013 Raúl García has scored 54 goals and has been one of the team’s most important players. The 33-year-old will have to continue playing at a high level moving forward as Athletic enter a difficult stretch of the season and will need to secure points in order to remain in the race for Europe.
