Rafael Jiménez Jarque, ‘Fali’, This season is experiencing an authentic dream with its premiere in the highest category of our football clad in the Cádiz jersey.
The Valencian defender enjoys the day to day, which has given him for victories against him Real
Madrid at Di Stéfano and before him Barça at Carranza, a draw at the Camp Nou and a good handful of great experiences. None, however, like playing in the fiefdom of Valencia, Mestalla.
Fali himself admitted this in an interview to the Andalusian club’s media: “Before entering the stadium (of Mestalla), I told the president (Manuel Vizcaíno) that a few years ago I was out of the field, I had a position on the trail . We got up at three or four in the morning to sell figures, vases and everything we found around. I’m going to play on that field now”.
And the illusion of seeing that dream come true was reinforced by remembering that playing at Mestalla, he also fulfilled a promise he made to his grandfather: “I told my grandfather that one day I was going to play on that field, and my grandfather laughed and told me how was that going to be, to keep selling at the stall ”.
“I told the president that dreams come true. You have to fight a lot and be lucky. You have to fight for your dreams, not try but do it. I have succeeded and now we have to fight to stay ”, Fali concluded.
