One thing is the assembly of the template and another the assembly of the team. When you see that it is engaging, the situation changes. He will tell time.”
“If you come predisposed… each one has to contribute where it touches him and put the best face. I believe a lot in that. The one who is outside makes the one who is inside good.

Conversations with Manolo

“We hope to improve society. We have been good in Cartagena. We have very fixed ideas, the group, Rubén and I. There is a lot of competition that will make us improve. We hope to improve the numbers. Rubén’s 20 goals did not serve for the play off. When I found out he was coming, I was very excited., we were already in contact with Manolo. It was special. When you connect with someone, you feel comfortable. I know how to associate with him, I know his movements, where he’s going to be… You have to keep him in top condition.”
“It conveys to us the conviction that we believe in the game idea. That’s going to give us the results we want.”
“Whatever Rubén says, I’m going with him. Prudence is good but the goal is to win every game. We will start in Burgos. No need to get tense. It’s something nice. It has been said too soon, but This team is built for it.”
The Rose Garden
“I have even played with La Rosaleda empty and it was already imposing. We cannot be in a hurry to please or to win. There are 42 games, 21 here. We have to be aware that people add and help. We have to give them more than they give us. It can be a definitive factor.”
