"The truth is that is cost a lot to watch from the outside at the start of the season for the pain in my soleus muscle, but I wanted to get to the derby to at least be with my teammtes," he says. "To help the team and score in the derby....to get three points at home for a Betis fan is the dream."
"The statistic are there to be broken," he said about not winning at home in the derby in 12 years. "We played a very complete game, as much in the first as the second, we were a serious side. In the end, Sevilla are a great team, they have great player and they make you suffer. But we knew how to counter them and I think that we were superior in all of the game. It's a deserved victory."
"I am privileged to be with this group of fans to be a bético, to have grown up here and to feel the importance of these games. The love, the respect, the admiration they have for me, I always say it, I will leave football happy because these people have given me everything," he said.
