From controversial and incomprehensible signing to being the one who transmits the most to the fans. Aleix Vidal has managed to turn the tables in just over a month. Although he had his stage at the Paraguayan base, his recent past at Barça and the need to reinforce other positions led the fans not to welcome his signing. Now everything has changed.
“It’s normal that people at first thought that maybe I came here to retire, to hang out. But I’ve never been like this. I will defend the Espanyol shirt with all my heart. I don’t think it’s a problem where & rdquor; comes from, he explained in an interview with ‘TV3’.
The match against Betis at Benito Villamarín marked a before and after. Vidal opened the can of a duel that could not end due to a set with Pezzella that cost him a leg injury with 15 stitches. Blood, sweat and tears were left on the grass. Literally.
He wanted to force himself to play Alavés just three days later but was advised not to. Nevertheless, Yes it was from the game against Sevilla a week later. “What I did the other day is what many players would do. It is a risky situation, yes, because there was a high risk that the wound would reopen & rdquor;, he acknowledged.
Now Real Madrid arrives and Vidal trusts not to leave empty. “If we thought it was a different game, we would be wrong. They are still three more points. The Sheriff won at the Bernabéu. The games are to be played and football is more evenly matched every day & rdquor;he added.
