Manuel Jimenez believes that Real Zaragoza have their fate in their own hands as far as retaining their La Liga status is concerned.

Real Zaragoza coach Manuel Jimenez has said that he is confident his side can stave off relegation from La Liga this season.

The Andalucian side defeated Rayo Vallecano 3-0 at home on Sunday to move a point above the drop zone with four more rounds of matches remaining this season.

"Because of the work we were putting in, one day luck had to shine on us," ESPN quotes him as saying.

"But we still have four finals left to play. Our fate is in our own hands, although we are just one point above the relegation zone. We have done nothing yet.

"We are who we are. Were not so bad before, nor so good now. If we beat Levante, [this win] will be even more important. If not the doubts will return."

Deportivo La Coruna, Celta Vigo and Real Mallorca are the three clubs in the relegation zone at the moment.
