Celta Vigo coach Eduardo Coudet has denied he considered resigning over the summer.
It was claimed Coudet was ready to walk away over a lack of signings.
But he said today: “We went to the United States with eight professional players. I grabbed the captains and told them: if 20 arrive, great, and if no one arrives, I'm here with you. I feel that my players throw themselves headlong for me and for a coach there is nothing more beautiful.
"I feel like I had to create a compromise. There was a nervousness, it is not easy to start 15-20 days with twelve players in the preseason. For the players with the most experience, it's hard, but the predisposition was always total. When I saw some nervousness, I had to grab them and let them know that we are all committed. Luckily, players have arrived."
Carles Perez has joined from Roma and Coudet continued: "He's fine, but he arrived three or four days ago. I don't think he's for 90 minutes. I look forward to it. Rarely have I seen a player exert so much force to get to a place. We were the first option, the players who have arrived wanted to come here."
Coudet also spoke of Denis Suarez and his row with the Celta board.
He added: “It is a situation that we knew from the previous one that these circumstances could arise. He is a boy that I love very much and he is living a different situation. Only the club and he can solve it."
