The game against Ahletic Bilbao will mark the return of Christian Wihelmsson to the starting line-up after the physical problem he suffered during the past week. The Swedish winger talked with newspaper <i>La Opini??n</i> and expressed his happiness with his current moment and with the confidence that Lotina has on him.

One of the novelties for the game against Athletic Bilbao is Christian Wilhelmsson, the Swedish winger missed the past game with Real Murcia for a hamstring strain. He talked with newspaper La Opini??n A Coru?±a and explained his happiness when he saw the game at El Sardinero "I was very happy when I saw what they have done. To bring those three points from Santander represented a complicated thing, but the team showed a good mentality and a pretty game, it gave me a positive impression."

He also commented his surprise about the moment lived by Deportivo before to his arrival "Now it surprises me to remember the position that Depor was occupying when I arrived, because this is a group of players with great quality and with a big potential. I was at Bolton, therefore I don't have an idea of what was happening on here (he laughs). It's difficult to explain,, I guess that sometimes, you miss confidence and everything is more complicated. And when you start going forward, you finally find the exit and start winning the matches, everything is different. Luckily, Depor has made this."

Finally, 'Willy' thanked the confidence of Lotina "I am feeling fine and I'm thankful with the coach. It's very important for a player to feel the confidence of the coach, therefore I'm giving my best in order to take part of the next game, and we will see. I think it was very positive to leave me out of the last game. It was positive, because now I'm much better. It was a risk to see me playing and to take a break was the best decision."
