Albiol press conference
Raul Albiol was extremely upbeat about the preseason to date and discussed the new signings and head coach during Tuesday’s press conference.
We have the pressure and responsibility of winning titles. We must accept it and we are aware that we cannot go another season empty-handed. We are all going to play our best in order to please the fans, the club and the whole world. We have to believe that we are going to win. We will play our hearts out to win the treble and we are excited about our chances.
Canales and Pedro Leon:
Canales and Pedro Leon are working very hard. They are young, talented and motivated and they want to prove that they can play here. We love having them because they are good teammates aside from being good players. We must all contribute because it’s going to be a long and difficult season.
The coach is organizing the squad in a manner that allows us to improve and accomplish our goals. We will welcome any player who comes with open arms because he will be here to contribute to what promises to be an exciting season. We must all stick together to accomplish our goals. Training sessions have been very demanding and intense. It’s all for the best.
We found out about Pepe yesterday. We hope he recovers soon. Kaka will need a bit longer. He is an important player and a great teammate. His situation is quite sad, but we hope he gets better as soon as possible. He has had it rough and has suffered a lot, which is why we try to cheer him up.
Spain in Mexico:
Wednesday’s friendly between Spain and Mexico should be a great game and I know everyone on the team is excited. I hope we continue winning. I know just how happy it makes everyone to see the star above Spain’s crest. It will be there forever. The best feeling was seeing how happy the whole country was.
