Garcia critical of Malaga players

Malaga head coach Javi Garcia was livid after his side was knocked out of the Copa del Rey on Tuesday night following their 1-0 defeat to Segunda Division side Mirandes.

The La Liga side needed to win after losing the first leg of the tie 2-1 away, but were just as ineffective.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Malaga boss Javi Garcia has criticised team's performance and felt their lower division opponents thoroughly deserved their win.

"We did a lot of things badly and competing like this we won't be able to go anywhere and play," he said.

"My players tried their best but the performance was not good and I must congratulate our opponents because they deserved it. We didn't demonstrate we were superior, although we did some good things, but it wasn't enough.

"We started brightly and made some good chances yet after that we got worse. In the second half I had to replace Ignacio Camacho and we know how important he is to us, and will continue to be."

Despite the result and Malaga's poor start to their La Liga campaign, Garcia was quick to play down the possibility of him resigning.

"I come here every day with the intention of doing my job well. Nothing else," he concluded.
