Your path as a goalkeeper

The error of the Eurocopa against Croatia

“This year I have had ugly experiences, but you can’t stop at it. In the game you have to have the memory of a fish because you cannot be blind. Leaving the game due to a mistake is disrespectful. Mistakes are part of football. At that moment I forgot very quickly because I saw that the team needed the goalkeeper. It is a life experience. “

Agirrezabala’s competition

“I have seen him and knew him before. He has always seemed like a great goalkeeper. Jokin and Julen push me because they are both great goalkeepers. Sometimes we see that there is a problem in the goal and what we have is a virtue because there are three great goalkeepers. You have to see how Jokin works, he is prepared to play phenomenally. Armando, a youth goalkeeping coach, always says he loves to see us up there competing. We must value what has been done in the lower categories. “

Last was a beautiful season for me that I think I will never repeat

The balance of last season

“A beautiful season with five championships and four finals. It has been a very beautiful season. The path traveled and the moments lived is what makes you grow as a footballer. From there, everything he has learned in the national team this summer will be put at the disposal of the team. It was a beautiful season for me that I think I will never repeat. “

The experience in Eurocup and Games

“The whole summer that I have been away has been a terrible experience, with a lot of enrichment in personal and sporting aspects. The Olympics were a dose of humility because we weren’t going as footballers, we were just a few more athletes there. That dose of humility makes you reconsider. “

The lost finals

“I want to play everything and win every possible title. Soccer is about competing, but it wouldn’t take away any of the losses because the experience of winning a Super Cup and losing a Copa del Rey makes you learn a lot. Let’s see if we can repeat and excite our people again. “
