Nico Melamed: ‘We come with a different illusion and joy’

The attacker of the RCD Espanyol Nico Melamed confessed, at a press conference at the Dani Jarque Sports City, that the squad comes with “an illusion and joy different from last year”, as the block faces its return to LaLiga Santander with emotion.

The youth squad insisted that the good feelings “are very noticeable in the environment.” Last year, after relegation to Second, the block started “with a very sour taste”, as Melamed confessed. “We came from the doldrums and the mood is now very different,” he added.

On a personal level, Nico Melamed said that he begins “with great enthusiasm and humility” the preseason. “I will play with the maximum commitment. As an ambitious footballer that I am, I want to be important, like all my teammates. That happens to show it from the first minute,” he stressed.

Asked about the collective goals, the footballer limited himself to betting on game by game. “We want to add three at a time. From there, we will try to enjoy every moment and every minute. We have looked at the calendar, although in the end we have to face everyone,” he said.

On the other hand, Nico Melamed valued the possible signings that the club makes this summer. “The reinforcements always help, but as we are, we have a more than valid block to be in the First Division. I see the team more than capable of competing,” the player analyzed.

Finally, the youth squad commented how the pandemic has conditioned his summer vacation: “My priority has always been work and being well for football. On vacation I have stopped doing some things because of the coronavirus. We knew we had to take care of ourselves.”
