Eibar boss Gaizka Garitano reveals his delight after leading the Basque outfit into La Liga for the first time.

Eibar boss Gaizka Garitano has revealed his delight after leading his side into La Liga.

The Basque outfit recorded a 1-0 win over Deportivo Alaves at the weekend, with that result meaning that they now hold an unassailable seven-point advantage over the teams outside of the top two automatic promotion places in the Segunda Division.

"It's a historic day. I missed the train as a player nine years ago and since then I've had this thorn in my side," Inside Spanish Football quotes Garitano as saying.

"I've dreamt a lot about this moment, I've been waiting for this say and it's come true.

"We did it with the team in the dressing room; we did it as a team, suffering until the end with 10 players. I can't wait to see the look of joy on the faces of the older fans."

Eibar have secured back-to-back promotions after joining the Segunda just last season.
