GetafeTOGathering BRAND in the Coliseum with Bordals and Jorge Molina, the two leaders of the blue miracle
Getafe is fashionable and the planet football wonders how it is possible for a modest to rub elbows with the biggest. Third in the League, tomorrow awaits Barcelona and around the corner is Ajax. With Jos Bordals and Jorge Molina we talk about the miracle of Getafe.
Question.They have known each other for 10 years when they coincided in Elche. What have they changed?
BordalsI have known Jorge for a long time and I have a great relationship, it’s easy. We are older. In my case as a technician you have more experience and experiences. It serves to mature. I see Jorge the same, I have always seen him very mature. He may not see me in the same way but I see that he is the same.
MolinaWe have known each other for a long time now. I believe that in what is the essence we are equal. It’s ten years, you gain experience and try to improve.
Q. Did you imagine this year improving the past?
B.It was unimaginable after the season the team made, qualifying for the Europa League and fighting until the last day for the Champions League. Statistically it has been very expensive to play in Europe and the League. We have recent references like Villarreal last year. The team is alive, has managed to dose and give importance to both competitions. We are happy and happy, there is still a long way to go.
Q. What is coming now: Bara and Ajax, dueling football styles.
M.Well (laughs), we can’t compare with them, but it’s a success that they do.
B. It fills us with pride but as Jorge says … The style is taste. Football covers a lot. It is beautiful in itself. Getafe plays very well and is an example for football. He is honest and honest.
Q. Let’s start with Bara de Setin. Bordals is good at his duels.
B.When you face a team, you are not a coach against another coach. I have never had that perception and I will never have it.
M.It is clear that going to Camp Nou is very complicated but we are hoping that something positive can be taken out. We go with conviction.
B.I think we can’t compare, there is a huge difference. Playing at Camp Nou has always been difficult. Score points are rarely given, but we have a lot of confidence in the team. The players are showing that they know how to do it well and believe in the work of the day. We have been demonstrating it all season.
Q. It is inevitable to talk this week about Setin-Bordals. His words were very hard.
B.I am totally isolated. I think it’s part of the past, I’m not spiteful. That happened and now the only thing I think about is football and my boys, in Getafe.
P. Bordals and Molina have shown that from Regional you can reach the lite on the benches and that a football player of almost 38 years can be one of the stars of LaLiga …
M.It is true that in that sense, the trajectory is ascending and has cost us to arrive. It is no longer our case alone, in the team there are other similar ones. That makes people more united and valued. They are cases like Jaime (Mata) or angel. Now we taste it …
Q. Do you have the feeling that the critics about the style of Getafe, the antiftbol and the fouls have already disappeared?
M.Surely there are people who think about it but they are things that fall by their own weight. You can go see the data of the Valencia game and there is no discussion. The team has many virtues and values and if someone does not think so, it is their problem. The team shows signs of having a great repertoire.
B.I honestly never worried about myself, I did it for my players. After what I demand, the waste that each party makes and that when you get a victory, honesty, honesty are called into question … I believe that Getafe has always shown signs of being an example. In fact many teams have us as a reference and somehow you always learn from the teams that do things right. If I have had any concerns, it has always been for them.
Q. Weight control, train more than anyone, always tightening … How does the wardrobe wear the permanent requirement every day?
M.In the end the master is a motivator, he speaks to you a lot and if you are receptive you are sure that you will improve. One of its virtues is that it makes the most of its players and teams. If you want to absorb the ideas, you pay attention and improve them. In training there is a requirement and then it affects the results. When the results are positive, they reinforce a lot.
B.Coaches must be good psychologists. Each soccer player has his personality. I have met players who arrive with habits that makes them cost more. When they adapt themselves they enjoy in the field, that is what it is all about. They have to feel able to play from t to t, whatever the team. I have no complaint, they are all good guys but they have to educate you to acquire those habits. It’s not that Bordals is more demanding.
Q. There is a lot of demand but everyone in the locker room boasts good vibes and being a family.
M.Mr. in confidence has a lot of sense of humor. We laugh a lot.
B.There are very funny people, sometimes I turn around so they don’t see me laugh. There are holy companions, there is a good atmosphere. Angel is very funny. Molina is fundamental, is a benchmark for colleagues. One is not aware of what lies in the rest and Jorge is a great reference.
M.Jokes there are few but it is true that it is a very healthy wardrobe, all have their grace. Damin is a to that generates very good atmosphere, always with jokes. Amath puts the music, it’s funny. It is another key.
P. Bordals spoke of Molina as the Cid Campeador because everyone follows him.
B.Is that as he acts or interprets what you give them also makes them follow their companions. It is essential for Getafe and for me as a coach.
Q. And how fundamental is it? If you go to Bara, what will Getafe lose?
B.You will lose a lot. Angel has given us a lot and is giving it to us. Any player is always an important loss. We hope he finally stays.
M.Angel is an important player for us for everything he gives us. He is a Getafe player and hopefully he will continue to be a union.
Q. Within the unimaginable thing that happens in Getafe, the one about Molina with almost 38 years is tremendous. The final is not seen according to their performance: 50 of their 55 goals in Primera have been thirties.
M.You have to be aware that the end is getting closer. As long as I continue to find myself well keep on waging war. As it has cost so much to arrive we will savor it more and enjoy every moment.
Q. The master has stopped smiling when he has said that the end is closer.
B.He doesn’t have to talk about it. Sometimes I tell him that he has to leave a legacy in football. Everything is in the mind and I tell him a lot. If you think you are older in the end you are. Today medicine has advanced, training is better, food … within everyone’s reach is to extend the career and be longer as a professional. That is why I have become serious, I do not like to think about that possibility. He has to enjoy the moment and have the mentality of a 20 year old boy. As a technician I have it, I don’t think I’m in the Primera or Europa League, I think about the illusion that my team is better every day.
Q. Even if you are looking only at the next game, another gift is to play against Ajax.
M.Yes, in the end one never knows. At no time when I signed on Getafe I thought about it, an Ajax was unthinkable. Three years later we are like this, which speaks of how well things are done.
Q. The Getafe of Bordals is reflected in Liverpool of Klopp, saving the distances?
B.We don’t reflect, we have our own personality. They can look like in a drawing and that’s why football is so great. A team like Getafe two and a half years ago was in Second and is now at the top fighting with the best. We will play a tie against Ajax, semifinalist of the last Champions. That gives you football. We are making a lot of people happy, not only from Getafe, but from football in general. I receive congratulations from other countries: from South America, from all over Europe, from Australia, from Japan. At Getafe, we are not aware of the good things you are doing in football. It’s crazy about this Getafe.
M.Today the differences are abysmal in terms of budget and structures. I think it is the sample that even having limitations, we work day by day with that requirement and commitment to achieve great things. It is no longer this year, but past years. In the end it’s a lot, it’s not a novelty. It takes a lot to get there, stay much longer. Many people are happy about that.
B.It is a blessing for football. You will have the same opinion if instead of Getafe it was another team. It is not easy, a newly descended team, we got a promotion and this is the fourth season that Getafe does things in a fantastic way.
Q. Do you have the thorn of not having won the Champions League last season?
B.In my case no. I am not a person who regrets me about the past. We think about this season, enjoy the moment and be better. We are in the middle of the crossbar, we have crossed it. We have the shore ah. If you come down, you don’t arrive. We want to arrive
M.In the end with time you value more what was achieved. The mrito is tremendous, football is one opportunity after another. Now we have to think about the present and the next game. We have done well.
P. El Coliseum korea all matches to Bordals and Molina.
M.They still feel identified in the way they arrive from below and fight for what we want. The results make everything go as well.
B.People immediately captured the effort and generosity of this team. Our hobby recognizes it and is a satisfaction. He is with the team. Our president has a lot of love, he trusts us and is a very important person, he is very close, he tries to give you what he demands. It is a family, we are all very close. We also thank the fans.
