Rodolfo Bodipo talked with newspaper La Opinión A Coruña and analyzed the third promotion to Primera on his resume; despite not playing too much he’s satisfied and grateful with the things he has lived in La Coruña and throughout his career.

It’s the third promotion in the resume of Rodolfo Bodipo, the previous two were with Racing Santander and Alavés, though on this one he had a lesser participation, “There was more tension now, with Racing and Alavés I played and scored goals. You live things in a different way, because you are helping the team inside the pitch, but on this year I was unable to help and the tension is higher as you are at home or at the stands.” He told during an interview with newspaper La Opinión A Coruña.

Still, the African attacker is feeling identified with the team and the fans despite only playing 86 minutes on the league season, “I felt part of the event, because football isn’t only a thing of the eleven or fourteen players that perform each weekend. It’s a matter of working the seven days of the week and you have to hold on at the good and the bad moments. We had created a solid group and everybody has put their grand of sand.”

About his enthusiastic celebration after clinching the promotion, Bodipo says that it was something special for him, “Everybody celebrates on their own way. I just felt a great joy, pretty emotive. We exteriorized the feelings, the tension and nerves throughout a year. I celebrated that way because it was what we felt.”

“This year there has been an important link connecting me with the fans and it's nice. The connection was also present with the team mates. They have supported me at all times. For example, when I returned from the African Cup injured and had to spend several weeks recovering outside the group.” He added.

About his future, the Equatoguinean attacker says that he hopes to stay at Deportivo for the coming season, "I always liked to stay at Deportivo. I have a year of contract and, for now, I want to enjoy the vacation and rest after a very hard campaign. I'm a real lucky. Football has given me a lot and I have to be grateful all my life.” He finalized.
