Andoni Gorosabel has appeared at a press conference in Zubieta after training to assess the development of the season, personal and team goals, as well as the return of the public to Anoeta this Saturday.
HOW’S THE PRE-SEASON GOING?
“This beginning has been a bit hard, but little by little we are getting used to it and picking up habits. The first game went well, we were comfortable but now it’s another game, we have been training for two weeks and little by little we are picking up pace “
ON SATURDAY THEY COME BACK TO PLAY WITH THE PUBLIC IN ANOETA
“Surely it will be a little strange at first after so long, but it is something that makes us very excited, that makes us very happy and that shows that little by little we are taking steps towards normality”.
HOW DO YOU SEE THE MATCH AGAINST ALAVÉS?
Now the important thing is to find sensations. Alaves are in the First Division and they will surely make things difficult for us. But that is not the important thing, the important thing is to find the rhythm and that each one improves his sensations ”.
DOES PREPARATION CONDITION HAVING THE OLYMPICS OUT? DO YOU THINK THEY WILL ARRIVE WELL?
“Everyone will arrive very well at the start of the season. We will all pick up the pace and surely for the first day we will all arrive well ”.
WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING AT THE PERSONAL LEVEL OF THE SEASON?
“Last season I found consistency and this year I want to maintain that, raise the level, continue to progress and help the team.”
WHAT OBJECTIVES DO YOU HAVE THIS SEASON?
“It is another season in which we are very excited about Europe, the Cup and the League. We are going to give our best in all competitions. and then whatever has to happen will happen. We want to be happy and proud of what we do ”.
LAST YEAR YOU PLAYED MORE THAN JOSEBA ZALDUA DO YOU FEEL A HEADLINE?
“Last year it was my turn to play more games, but until last year it was my turn to play less. In the end, no one feels like a starter, each one fights for the position and what we want is that when the coach has to choose, he chooses you, he chooses you and, when he does, do the best possible. I think in the end it is a healthy competition that makes us both better ”.
AFTER LAST SEASON THE LIST IS HIGH …
“Last season was very good collectively. Winning a title after many years is very difficult, but we will try to achieve the maximum possible achievements, be as high as possible and fight for the Cup and in Europe. With our weapons we will try to overcome those teams that are at the top and cut the differences as much as possible ”.
THE MARKET IS STOPPED. THERE ARE JUST SIGNINGS. DOES THAT BENEFIT THE REAL, A YOUNG TEAM, WHICH HAS KEPT THEIR PARTS AND WHO IS IN PROGRESS?
“It seems that the teams are not making big signings or big moves. We have the team made, a base for a few years and that is good for us, we all know each other, we know how we work on a day-to-day basis and keep that secure block that will make us compete to the fullest and make us stronger ”.
WHAT HAS IMPROVED SINCE YOU DEBUT?
“What I notice the most on the pitch is confidence, believing in myself, gaining that maturity on the pitch. In the end we improve every day, but I have aspects to improve in attack, defense and tactically and I am working on them to keep improving ”.
WHAT WOULD YOU BE SATISFIED WITH THIS SEASON?
“Repeating last year would be good, but it is difficult. We have to try to fight to get into Europe again, try to fight for the Cup and go further in Europe. We have many open fronts and many options to improve what we did last year and we are going to go for them ”.
