After just two minutes everything seems new, but then you focus on the game and forgot about the rest. It was incredibly to go out of the pitch to allow the entry of Valerón. I never imagined that it would happen. It is a tremendous pride and satisfaction.”

The Galician midfielder is also conscious that he still has to earn a place at the first team and that his normal spot still at Depor B, “Continuity is what a footballer is looking for, but at this point I do not know in which team I will play next week.
