first_imgAs the season progressed, Jorge Cordero, who signed me and then was the sports director, called me to tell me that they wanted to renew and extend my contract. Then, when everything changed, my representative was told that they didn’t count on me. Nothing happens, I was always calm. He played in an entity similar to Elche, in Salamanca. I terminated my contract and the Numancia option appeared, where I am now happy.Did someone explain the reasons?No, it was all through my agent. With Pacheta I did not have the opportunity to speak. On Sunday I will see him and, like the rest of the companions who are still in Second B, who are many, I will be very happy to greet you again.Do you keep in touch with the Elche costumes?The one he talked to the most was Gonzalo Villar, who left transferred. I am very happy for him because these opportunities change your life and cannot be missed.The Elche de Pacheta, is it very different from the one you met in the year of the ascent to Second?Then we played Sory Kaba a lot, to take advantage of the speed of the extremes like Josan, Collantes or Iván Sánchez. Now it is a team to take it more from behind and do it less in length. What does remain unchanged is the intensity and desire that the team imposes on each ball.Do you consider Elche a direct rival in the fight for promotion promotion?Elche is in a different league than Numancia. We aspire to maintain the category and add 50 points. Now we have several days without winning, but we remain halfway up (they are ninth). That means we are doing things right.But Elche also maintains that this is its objective: the 50 points.Yes, but Elche has a bigger budget and players with great potential who aspire to be up.Finally, do you expect a good reception?Of course. I gave everything I had in Elche. I played 20 official matches, which is not bad for an U23 player. I felt one more of that season of the ascent and now I wish you the best, it cannot be otherwise. Iván Calero (Madrid, 1994) will once again step on illicit lands. In this case, as a rival. He does it without rancor and grateful for the opportunity that Elche gave him to return to Spain. It happens to be one of the best laterals of Second, after Nico Rodriguez gave him the freedom letter in summer.Go back to Martínez Valero considered one of the best lateral rights in the category. A few months after your goodbye, how do you feel?The first thing I must say is that I am happy to return to Elche. There I lived a very good year, personally and collectively. We achieved promotion to the Second Division and I am very grateful to the three coaches I had: Vicente Mir, Josico and Pacheta.Elche was the club where it was converted to the side …Yes, with Vicente Mir (he already did it with Bernat in the Mestalla). I used to act as an extreme on the left wing and the injury of Gabriel Corozo, who was right back, offered me the option to play there. I recognize that at first I did not dominate the defensive concepts and we had to apply patience. In the end, I got it and now I’m happy occupying this demarcation.Did it hurt that Elche did not give him the opportunity to return to the team after his excellent season in Second Division B with Salamanca?last_img
