FHe was one of the great architects of the return of Real Valladolid to First Division just a few months ago. His constant work and fight allowed him to score 35 goals last season. Something that always remain in the memory of the vallisoletano fan, who this Sunday live his return to Zorrilla defending the colors of Getafe. Both Madrileos and Pucelanos play a lot and Jaime Mata live a very special meeting, as he assured in an interview with Radio MARCA Valladolid.
We are talking to an international with Spain. Big words...
It has been something precious, something unique what I have lived these days, but you know that this is very fast. I am already focused again on LaLiga and fighting for what we are fighting.
Was the call from Luis Enrique expected?
The last days I knew I was shortlisted and had that tingling, but I was unforeseen. When he gave the list it was something incredible.
He left Valladolid in summer. What has changed his life in a few months ...
I will say from the last year in Valladolid. As a result of the last season everything has been rolled out on a personal and collective level. I have nothing to complain about.
How are you doing at Getafe?
Very well. In the end I am at home and I have close family and friends. The day is very easy. In addition, the team is going all phenomenal from the first moment. We achieved permanence with enough solvency and now we are fighting for European positions. In the absence of seven days, being as we are is to be very happy. Let's hope we can hold on.
Sunday's game is important for Real Valladolid, but also for Getafe ...
All teams are playing something, either above or below. You can not set long-term goals because winning or losing a game changes the situation a lot.
Important ... and special
Very very special Valladolid is the most special place I've been. I have experienced a historic ascent for the city as well as for the group. My son has also been born there ... The affection I have for Valladolid is maximum.
When you can afford it, do you follow Real Valladolid matches?
Whenever it does not coincide that we play at the same time I am in front of the TV. It is the team that I also want and also I have a lot of friends and friends playing ah.
What do you think of the blanquivioleta season?
They started very well and now they are having more difficulties to get the matches, but the line is correct. A few days ago they were praised by all and we must be aware of the difficulty of the category.
In Valladolid it has been commented a lot that this team with Mata will be much higher ...
I do not believe much in that ... You have to believe in what there is and in the work that is done. Although the moment is more delicate, we must continue supporting so that they finish solving the season and we are all in First the next.
The wardrobe defends to coat and sword to Sergio Gonzlez
I totally agree. The team has shown it and they only have to get the results with a bit of luck. The work that both the staff and the technical staff are doing is good.
How do you see your excompaero Sergi Guardiola?
It is complicated the year he has had: between the goals that the VAR has taken from him and the bad luck ... But I see him well and he is doing a good job.
What happens if you check on Sunday?
I will not celebrate, I have maximum respect. I have always thought that you do not believe in this kind of thing, because cario is shown when you are defending those colors, but I do not want anyone to be offended and the most logical thing is to apologize and wish that from Monday on we go to both just as well.
