Àlex Granell: “Girona is better and we all believe it”

first_imgGirona is again that team that scares and that many give him as a clear candidate for promotion to Primera. What feeling is in the locker room?The dynamics are very positive and I think that Girona now guarantees that each match will compete as the category demands.They have added 11 points of the last 15 and it is seen that the team has more confidence than before. What has changed?In terms of attitude, from day one, no one can recriminate anything to the team, but it is true that we now compete better and make more intense pressure. We feel powerful. Girona is better and we believe it. We are prepared to face the final leg of the course with all the enthusiasm to climb.What options do you think they have to ascend?The last weeks invite optimism, but you have to have humility and patience. We have to continue with the good dynamics until the end because there have been sections of the season in which things have not done well and there is no margin for error. What do you think will be your biggest rivals to achieve the goal?Each week this category gives you soccer lessons and making predictions is a sure defeat. But the teams that are now up I see them very powerful.Do you think the pressure has been able to take its toll at some point during the season?I think it has affected us to generate unreal expectations. To think that the objective would be achieved without sweating or placid way. We disrespect the competition and none knew how to stop the euphoria there was.You could leave Girona in summer and in the last winter market. Why did you reject all offers?I am not a passing player. My link with Girona is very important and I have the feeling that when I leave, this club should be in First. Later, it is true that at Christmas I received offers, but they did not approach the clause I had to leave and it was disrespectful to force any situation. Do you think you are at your best moment of the season?Yes, but because of my profile, if Girona is good, I am too. In addition, with Gumbau we understand each other in the field and it shows.In Montilivi, the fans whistled. Have you overcome it?It hurt me a lot. I think he deserved respect and not be so pointed or harshly criticized. Now I see it as a life experience and all the sweet moments I’ve lived here beat these.The fans seem to be with the team again. Will it be key in the final stretch?We have left pessimism behind and now there is euphoria. We have to give them hope. With them everything is easier.The third edition of its Campus in Soccerland Catalunya is underwayÀlex Granell presented last Wednesday afternoon in Girona the third edition of its Soccer Campus that will be held from June 28 to July 4 this year at the Soccerland Catalunya facilities in Tordera (Finca Can L’Orench, Ctra. de Blanes a Tordera, Km 2.5 08490 Tordera).
