Ayestaran says he accepts this "challenge" because he sees it "as an opportunity", despite just taking two training sessions before the game.

Ayestaran said Las Palmas are a "special club" and he will try to bring "combative play" to a team which has "some techncial and tactical characteristics which lend themselves to a passing game".
