*Below is a transcription of his interview from Spanish to English
Do you see yourself prepared for first division football?
“I am completely concentrated on finishing this year in the best form possible on an individual level as well as the collective level at Albacete. Though of course, it is the dream of any player to be in the first division. You have to be ambitious and yes, I do see myself as prepared”.
Could you play in the first division with Albacete?
“I am on loan from Real Madrid and the club will make that decision, but logically, I would love to play in the first division at the hand of Ramis and this Albacete team. It would certainly be approved by me”.
What is your future with Real Madrid?
“The truth is that I have not even begun to think about that, because we [Albacete] still have eight finals remaining and we are playing for everything. The rest will come afterwards”.
Zidane hasn’t called you?
“No, the truth is that I have not received contact from him nor Solari. But it is okay, that is normal”.
What would you bring to the first division?
“Well, first you have to get there and reach that level. But, I would bring ambition, hard work, and above all my competitive nature. It doesn’t matter what level, these values would be with me in the first, second, or any other division”.
Reguilon, the latest Canterano in the first team:
“It’s clear, Reguilon has demonstrated that he has the ability to be in the Real Madrid first team. I think he is an example for any Canterano that with hard work, your opportunity may arrive”.
