On the right path

Hi everyone,

I have been looking forward to this for a long time: writing on a Sunday evening just to show how excited we are in the team. On the pitch we could exhibit the team’s potential and we enjoyed our game, and I also have to thank our fans for always being there, for their trust and support. Beating QPR is only one game, that’s pretty clear to me, but I also hope it is going to start a good streak that will take us far, to the place where we want to be.

In the last few weeks I have been telling you that we are working very well in the training sessions. With so many new players and a new football style we need time to adjust to each other. It takes time to bear fruit but I knew that was going to happen. We keep working on it and a victory like this one against QPR comes to show that we are on the right path.

Personally, playing alongside guys like Blind, Rojo or Falcao is a joy. They will become more and more adjusted to the team and their quality will help us a lot. We have been working together for a few days now, getting to know each other, and I’m sure we will be a better team as weeks go by. As regards to Di María, it seems he’s been with us for a long time. Ángel is a very enthusiastic guy, a great signing. After the game I gave to him the MVP trophy and improvised as his translator for the TV. He looks happy and that makes us happy as well.

Now we have a week to prepare the next game against Leicester and to keep working together as a team. I was looking forward to enjoy a week like this after a good result.

In Spain, the most remarkable game of the weekend was the derby in Madrid. Atlético beat Real with a goal from a player I really like: Arda Turan. Pure talent.

Before I say goodbye I would like to congratulate the girls of theSpanish national team after qualifying for the Women’s World Cup for the first time ever. Good luck in Canada! And I send all my support to our national teams of basketball and tennis; soon we will be celebrating your success again, I’m sure of that!

Thank you for your support and for congratulating me after my goal

Keep it up!

Have a nice week.
