Jemez livid after Las Palmas capitulate

Las Palmas manager Paco Jemez unleashed a torrent of criticism at his players after their 2-0 La Liga defeat to Villarreal on Sunday.

Carlo Bacca opened the scoring for the visitors in the 67th minute before a penalty from Nicola Sansone in stoppage-time secured all three points for the Yellow Submarine.

Jemez was enraged after the defeat and went as far as to say that Las Palmas would probably be better off replacing the entire squad, including himself.

“When you don’t play like a Primera team, everything goes wrong,” Jemez said, according to Football Espana.

“It was a real disaster in every way, with things that I thought had passed but reappeared.

“I’ll try to think that it was just a very bad day, but it can’t be repeated. If it is, we’re dead.

“I appreciate that Villarreal are Villarreal, but there was a huge difference in pace between the two teams.

“Everything failed, we didn’t do anything right. We weren’t able to keep the ball for even half a second.

“They looked like they were flying on a plane, while we had our legs tied. We got worse with every touch. It was real chaos out there.

“If they had money and time, they’d have a reason to get rid of everyone here, me being the first, and bring in 24 new faces.
