Juanfran spoke to the press after the training session in Casa del Agua finished. After achieving the first away win, he said he was “very happy. We really needed to win, also win away. We’ve taken an important step to be calmer and remain in first division”.

Along these lines, he believes that Wednesday’s encounter (6:45pm, Bein Sports) against Betis is “very important to take an even further leap”.

Regarding the match in El Molinón, he acknowledged that the game wasn’t “brilliant. But the team knew how to suffer, knew how to be together. Something that we didn’t know how to do other times. And we got something positive out of a very difficult match, in a lovely ground to play in, with a lot of our fans who went to support us. What best to give them something to celebrate?!”

Despite having many games in few days, Juanfran pointed out “we are professional. We’re ready to play. At the end of the day, it’s a pleasure to play every three days. Let’s hope that next year or the following years we can play every three days with Dépor. I see my teammates are fine. We’ve recovered well here in Casa del Agua, I’m sure we’re going to be fine”.

He insisted that “it’s not normal that Betis have two extra days to prepare the match. That’s LaLiga’s doing. We cannot get involved there. But it doesn’t favour us”.

He spoke clearly about his future, and confessed that Barça were interested in signing him: “It’s a compliment, it’s the bee’s knees that a team like Barça show an interest in you.

But he assured that “I´m going to finish the season here January wasn’t the right moment and even less now to talk about going from one place to the next. The most normal thing is to renew for more years in summer and to continue more years here”.
