Las Palmas like to 'make opposition dizzy'

The 24-year-old is enjoying life on the Canary Islands, where he grew up, but also the style of football at his club: “Since I was a youngster, the philosophy at Las Palmas has always been to play, to control and the ball and the match… to make the opposition dizzy.”
