“I think it’s very important to connect with the human group. I’ve seen people who are willing to do things for their teammates. They’re guys who work hard to improve every day. I had been associated with Málaga for a long time, but I hadn’t been able to arrive. I thank everyone who has helped me to be here”.

Reasons to come to Malaga

“Every time I have faced Málaga I came with great enthusiasm. The fans were pressing, the field is spectacular, from the outside you can see many beautiful things. When I have the call from Manolo, I have not thought about it. He can tell you, no It’s been hard on my part.”

Pepe Mel

“Before signing with Málaga I had a conversation with him, he told me that he was looking for another type of profile, a fast and upright winger. That’s how the conversation went. I’ve been a versatile player, it’s a matter of the coach. All my career I’ve played more of a winger than a striker”.

“Everything that is said from the outside does not interest me, personally. I am focused on what we do here. We have Burgos on Saturday and we have to go out and win it. I hope the fans come to support us, we need them”.

What is missing to win?

“In the end it is insisting, the team competes quite well. We have spent many games in the red zone, that also affects. There is a psychologist who helps improve these aspects. If you win two or three games, the dynamics change. On Saturday you will see others stuff.

Several colleagues told me that the dressing room was incredible, the good vibes… Football situations make you not get victories by details. In this category it is difficult get out from below. They have welcomed the three of us very well. The adaptation is being very good”.

What is missing to the team?

“Málaga competes in all phases of the game, we are making mistakes or having bad luck at certain times, goals at the end of the game… We have to clear our minds for the next game. Our minds are set on getting the three points. The dynamics are important. Let the details fall on our side. There we will see a different Málaga”.

external critics

“You work well, you train well. There are no black sheep in the dressing room. We don’t have to go in to assess comments from outside the club. The work that is done every day is very hard to win on Saturday”.


“The team had just beaten Alavés and opted for the same eleven. I was able to make my debut at La Rosaleda. In this first round I haven’t played the minutes I wanted, the lack of rhythm is noticeable. I’m ready for when the coach needs me I’m going to fight for it.”

Arvin Appiah
