Villarreal coach Emery wary facing Cadiz: They've improved a lot

Villarreal coach Unai Emery says there'll be no underestimating Cadiz today.

Emery spoke about the Yellows, emphasising the importance of Sunday's game and the call-ups for Pau Torres and Yeremy Pino with Spain.

He said, “Everything starts with LaLiga. It's the competition that is going to give us the chance to be in Europe. This Sunday's match is very important to have chances in the future. Cádiz are a team that have improved a lot and we recently had a painful defeat against Osasuna. Winning away from home. We need to find consistency and find footballing and mental responses.

“We're in an improvement process in every aspect, especially on a mental level. We need to find consistency and be capable of playing games midweek and then at the weekend. We have constant tests and Sunday is one of them. We need to be capable of playing with the same starting XI in Turin or with a completely different starting XI. It's a challenge we need to overcome."

On Pau Torres and Yeremy Pino being called up by Spain, Emery also said: “It's really positive that Villarreal players are called up by their country. We have a lot of international players in the squad, which is recognition for the club and also for each player. Their successes on an individual level also please us."
