I’m here now and hope to make a big impact, and that’s it’s a good year for the club and for me. I hope we have a great season, and I’ll do my best for the team and the fans to make sure we arrive as far up the table as possible.”
“Malaga’s offer was what enticed me most, I want to be at a club where the fans want me, and I felt this affection here,” he said, while adding, “I’m delighted to be here, now the most important is to start the league. I really hope things go well and that it’s a great year for us.”
He also spoke about Malaga’s exciting project “the aim is to rise up in the classifications with a lot of ambition and young players, the coach has told me he’s going to be very demanding. In the end, if you want to be up there with the best you have to be persistent if you want to do well”.
