Paco Herrera delighted to lift Celta Vigo into Primera Division

Celta Vigo coach Paco Herrera is thrilled to have taken the club back into the Primera Division.

A draw with Cordoba was enough to see Celta win promotion behind Deportivo La Coruna.

Former Liverpool coach Herrera told Marca: "It is a pleasure to coach a squad like this. It's true that this team is a group of friends, a group that unites to support each other.

"This season we have the fortune of having two or three veteran players that have contributed a lot.

"The fans deserve to see their team play against Real Madrid or Barcelona. Moreover, next year we will again have the derby against Deportivo La Coruna, so Galician football is the winner from our promotion.

"I will never forget this image. It has been amazing to see Balaidos full like this."
