Iago Aspas relieved as Celta Vigo (just about) safe

Iago Aspas is delighted Celta Vigo will be safe for another season.

Celta's safety is basically confirmed as Girona would rely on a series of unlikely events in order to remain in the Primera Division.

"After [the situation we were in] in the last few months, we would all have signed to be where we are going into the last matchday of the season," Aspas said at the press conference prior the game against Rayo Vallecano.

"We were in a difficult situation and we have to be proud, while we have to face the game against Rayo [with a good mindset] as this is our last game played at home [this season].

"For me [this campaign] is a failure because we didn't finish where we should have.

"I said three years ago when we played in the Europa League that I would like to fight again [to be in Europe], otherwise for me it is a failure.

"[We have] a squad with a lot of young players and there were a lot of changes compared to last year, and a lot of coaching changes.

"When all these three things happen, something has not gone well and it's the players who suffer."
