Cucurella: ‘I am staying at Getafe, I would like to continue here for many years’

Marc Cucurella, footballer of Getafe, affirmed this Wednesday that he will not leave the Madrid club before the market closes and explained that he wants to continue “many years” in the club chaired by Angel Torres.

After the great game he signed against Betis, in which he scored a good goal and was one of the best, the value of Cucurella, a few days before the deadlines for signing players, has risen again to be a coveted player. However, the winger of the Bordalás team will continue at Getafe.

“I’m very happy here, in the end I think we can have a great year, we have to continue as before, with our hallmark, fight as if it were the last game. We are doing well, so I’m going to stay here. I would like to continue in Getafe for many years, “he said at a press conference.

Asked about the possibility of entering the next list of the Spanish team, Cucurella admitted that for “every” player it is a “dream” to be able to participate with his country’s team and added that while that option arrives he will try to put his “grain of sand “in Getafe for Luis Enrique to notice him.

“If there is that award, welcome, but always with my feet on the ground. I am very young, in front of me there are very good players and those who go to the national team are spectacular players worldwide. If in the end I enter the list I will enjoy this experience to the fullest. “

In addition, he said that this season, after a good first year at Getafe, he feels that he has “consolidated” in the azulón team and acknowledged that he feels “very comfortable” under the command of José Bordalás.

“I needed to contribute a little more in attack, with goals and assists. Yesterday I was able to help the team in that aspect. Very happy, we have a great team on and off the field and it shows. We all run for each other and we give it. Everything. Happy on a personal level and especially for the great start. “

He also spoke about the words of his coach, who after winning Betis said that he “stings” Cucurella telling him if La Masía only taught him to pass the ball and not to score goals.

“We all know the coach, he tries to get the best out of each player and with his jokes he tries to get with you to get the best of me. He has been telling me for years that I have to score goals. Last year I only scored one and he has already told me that It’s something I have to improve. The ball came in yesterday and I’m happy. “

Regarding whether Getafe has already forgotten the end of last season, when he was left out of Europe on the last day after signing a very bad final, he answered in the affirmative and pointed out that he is already “very focused” on this course.

“We know that it will be very hard and it will be the same or more competitive than the previous one. We knew that starting well was important. We are focused on each game and on fighting in the next three points. After the confinement, when we did not get results, We were anxious to score points. That is not good for us. The holidays have served to make a ‘reset’ and come with charged batteries.
