Elche continues working in Oliva with the illusion of redirecting its course and launch the Machín era with good results before the end of the year. This has been confirmed by striker Lucas Boyé. The Argentine claims that “He has come to put his chest to win and move this situation forward, which is what we all want.” Lucas Boyé acknowledges that “The sensations are those of a new beginning and a new opportunity for the team.” “We have to keep working, as we were doing before, but it is normal that when a coach arrives it is a different start. The break has given us a lot of energy, it has cleared our minds a bit and hopefully it will serve to score points, which is the goal”.
There are 22 days of hard work ahead until competition returns in the Copa del Rey, in front of Guadalajara. The nine days of vacation “have come in handy”, says Boyé, because they came “at a time when it was necessary, after three straight defeats in which it was necessary to win and nothing was added”. “The break came very well and hopefully it will serve what is coming because it is necessary to add and lift this,” he insists. Lucas Boyé also affirms that “it is important to continue advancing in the Cup” before facing a very tough match, in the Metropolitan, against Atlético de Madrid: “In these years we have competed very well there and let’s see if, in addition to that, we are able to come back with something positive from that match”.
Finally, the Argentine striker, one of the most loved by the Elche fans, acknowledges that the comeback is necessary for the fans and for themselves because they are having “a bad semester and a bad start to the season.” “The first round is about to close and we have all suffered during this period of time. We are the first who want to move this forward to try to celebrate the permanence in this very special year, about which there was a lot of talk at the beginning and, for this reason, that it went so badly is a great disappointment for everyone ”.
