Espanyol Javi Chica: "Winning Betis, you reconnect and see the light" – Transgaming

by: Adam Smith


What do Espanyol and Betis mean in your career?

Espanyol is everything to me. I got ten years old to fry and went up to touch First. I grew up, trained and learned. Betis is no longer a team as it was the first after Espanyol. He opted for me, I left home, I became independent, I went with what is now my wife …

What do you call optimistic and do you think Espanyol will be saved?

Having experienced similar situations. Outside, it dramatizes a lot. The situation is complicated, but sometimes from the inside you see it differently. I was the first player to look at the standings and say, "If we win, we're two points away." If you win Betis, log in and see the light.

Why do you think from your experience this situation has been achieved?

There is a coach change, you start the losing path against Sevilla, you have been focused on the Europa League from the start … The whole preseason is official. And then comes the League and you're a little clueless. Unconsciously, the player sometimes thinks so.

Europe affects, therefore.

It was not played for many years and there are also few players who are on regular teams in Europe. Only Diego López, David López or Estebán Granero … The player is excited, represents the focus and motivates. LaLiga too, but you come from a long trip, to play on Thursday and it's not the same thing. Espanyol can use to play on Mondays. It affects mentally. I read Moses Hurtado, who spoke on Twitter to fans who said CSKA had to be beaten, that feelings about the match against Betis were important … But when he won in Europe, positivism didn't change in LaLiga. This does not affect.

And do you see the team going far in Europe?

With Betis we went to Monday and Sevilla eliminated us on penalties to access the European semifinals. In the end Betis had a very good team with names, but he went to the hole. It is the mindset. It can go far.

Has it bothered you to lose the European sequence since you also collaborated on 06-07?

We put our grain of sand. Annoyance, but what matters is winning Betis. Change this sequence to win Betis and see the light.

How would Betis fans live a situation like the current Espanyol?

Everything is lived differently. There were children who did not attend school. I remember a ten year old in a T-shirt that said "Betis is my life, don't play with it". It affects you.

And besides, Betis arrives with Ruby at verdiblanco bank. Was your departure the beginning of trouble?

Ruby gave a magnificent collective and individual performance and is hard to match. Gallego came from home and met everyone, and for whatever reason, everything changes. I don't know who the club bet the most on, it's all the past water. In sight are the growth of Hermoso and Borja and the money that has been withdrawn for them, including all that has been said about Roca. Melendo knocked on the door and Pedrosa played in the end. We do not know more details about what happened. Maybe Ruby didn't bet on Espanyol or the club didn't do it for him.

How do you rate the reception that awaits you?

There are things we will not know about your departure. Fans go to the stadium and let off steam. Sometimes rightly and sometimes without. I see & # 39; Girl Selection & # 39; unfair and I didn't like it when they whistled in Seville. It is important to support the player.
