His words, “Not playing is frustrating,”
“Realeza del Fútbol Latino” podcast. I know I have the conditions to always play, but because of other people, I cannot do it.”
“If I were a bad player, I would accept it, but I’m a person who wants to win and always play.
“When you see you don’t have the same opportunities as your team-mates, it’s hard. I wanted to leave but the club wouldn’t let me.”
“He has his own tastes for some players and you have to respect that,”
“I don’t get involved with things like that.
“I wanted to go somewhere where I would have played, as I knew that I wouldn’t have chances to do that under Zidane because he already has his base.”
