"The team has released some pressure and managed to win against a difficult opponent," said Voro. "We can look to the future with optimism, although we have not achieved anything. This victory does not solve all the problems - in the same way that if we had lost, we'd not have been left without any options."
He added: "Timo Hildebrand accepted the decision to play Santi. I always had confidence in Santi because he is mentally strong and could give us much-needed security at the back."
