"These weeks have not seen a lot of football and have done it a bit of far. I have put a bit of distance with what is happening but when you go in a club to 200 by hour can not happen to zero of at all. Yesterday I saw the semifinal of Glass to whiles, by television. The only complete party that have seen this month has been the Athletic-Barcelona of Glass", explained.

The Txingurri happened on tiptoe by it sucedido in the Glass of Rey. "Always it costs to see again to the teams in which you have been of recent way, for putting distance. But if we speak of the party of quarter-finals of Glass is very seemed to the that had the first party of League in Saint Mamés. I do not want to generate controversy with this because I do not want to give foot to any conclusion. Of each place in which I have been take out things to take advantage of to future. It is necessary to adapt", commented.

"The League? The Madrid is strong this year"

This yes, left clear that his colours are the rojiblanco of the Athletic Club. "If I stop me to think and go back the sight backwards, by all what supposed for the people, win the Supercopa with the Athletic to the Barcelona was special. I am of the Athletic and train to the club of the that are and of the that is your surroundings does that win and lose was much stronger....But well, the Athletic has a so good climate that it is the best that have done and have found me in my career. Go back? I finish to fulfil years and see young trainers like Garitano, Etxeberria, Iraola... The future goes through they", said.

In Rome do not finish to be in the party and always thinks that with which were could take it out. And in Liverpool when we begin to play did us the goal that wanted to avoid. A goal us given the classification and in a minute put us two goals. They are situations that give . Always you put you in the position of the that wins. In the gone with the Liverpool suffer a lot but could win by four goals", remembered.

"The Champions is complicadísima to win, the Europe League, the world-wide and eurocopas....They are all tournaments that depend on a party, of a situation.

Look to the future

Are what supposes to train there from all the points of view and am loved to have been there. When you sign the agreement already know that everything depends on the results and that the trainer always goes to be the manager. I do not think in if I have felt me unfairly treaty. I understand that it ask after this, but of what treats is to make a fresh start and not giving turn. To me it interests me that I go to look advance and not looking to backwards", affirmed

"I have thought to go to see to several teams, also want to be with other trainers, talks with them, confrontar subjects and different situations", added. When they asked after him his favourite to win the League, surprisingly said that it saw to the Real Madrid champion. "The Madrid is strong and very focused in the League", concluded.
