The interview of the former Napoli midfielder in El Pais
“You can’t say no to a club like PSG, for the project they are doing, for the club, for the history. I still had one year on my contract, and both Napoli and I had an interest in finding another accommodation. . I think it was a great choice. It happened while I was concentrating on preparing for Napoli. My agents called me to inform me they were interested, and then I spoke to Luis Campos, who explained the project to me, how much he wanted me to do. I was here. Later I also talked to Galtier, who explained to me his way of playing, the ideas he had. Those conversations were very beautiful, they gave me a lot of confidence, that desire to be here with them, to work together, and it was one of the things that made me confirm that decision. They like what I have done over the years. At Napoli, for work or luck, things were going well, as a team and personally. “
“At first it’s a bit impressive, knowing that you will play with them, that you will live with them every day. It is a privilege. But at the same time it is normal. They are normal guys. I remember when I left Betis for Napoli. The first few months were very difficult. I also had a bit of a tough time. Because of the language, because of the change of the country. After so many years surrounded by family and friends, seeing yourself overnight alone in a new city without knowing anyone, it was hard at first. I was also younger. It may have been the most difficult change. But you learn from everything, and I never imagined that after four years I would be as good as I have been. Now I’m older, I’ve already had that experience and I’m a little more ready ”.
