Imanol Bailiff says he is in favor of sticking with all the players he currently has next season. Among them are Sorloth, on loan from Leipzig, and Illaramendi, who hasn’t renewed until a month before the end of his contract. The coach also assures that Sadiq is “far away” from being able to play and he already has his sights set for the next campaign.
About Sorloth, the man from Oreiro spoke as follows: “What do you want to tell me? I have always said that when Alex gives his best version, he is a top player, he has shown it again and Not only in this game, but during the whole season. When he is well it is the difference”, said the coach. “His season is going very well,” concluded the Norwegian coach, but not before remembering that he also stands out because he is “well surrounded at Real.”

Imanol, for his part, could not dispel the doubts that hang over the continuity of Asier Ilarmendi: “He is playing less, but for me he is a special player,” he said. For all this, he insists that “I have the best team, of course there could have been others with more talent, but I am clear that what we have right now is gold”. It doesn’t hurt for the coach to make sure “To me, there’s no better team than the one we have, that doesn’t mean they’ll all be here next year.” He expects there will be players who ask to leave because they are not enjoying the minutes, but “I would like all of them to continue next year.” And it is that, in his opinion, “they are giving everything and that is priceless.”
Sadiq, Para 23/24
Finally, he mentioned Sadiq Umar, whom he gives no option to play in the remaining three matches: “He is too far away. We are putting him in, but he is too far away. Hopefully everything will be fine.” And he does a good job on leave because, unfortunately, he won’t be able to stay much longer. He needs to put his batteries together for the pre-season. We want him to develop well so that he is ready for the tournament Available. Starting”.
