Claro that there is win of Champions but know the difficulty that this comports. LaLiga Is the thermometer and consider that it was a good year".

"I agree in that the Leagues devaluate . It is an only attainment win 8 of 11. Never we did it in the history. More in a League like the Spaniard, of the most powerful of the world. Perhaps they do not value so much because we win them with 15 or 20 points of advantage the majority. It subtracts them value because we have been very upper to the rest", has explained, before launching a 'dart' poisoned to the rival maximum, doing quotation to his performance in the last campaigns so much in the domestic championships as in Europe.

"Every year we compete with teams like the Madrid, the Seville, the Athletic, Valencia... That they are teams that afterwards go out to Europe and win the Champions and the Europe League. We could centre us in the Champions and throw LaLiga and the Glass as they do some, but we do not play to the Russian roulette. Here it likes us do the things well, work from the first day, seat a base in League and arrive well to the last stretch of the season. We expect that this year we are able to raise them all", has sentenced.
