Real societyTOThe azkoitiarra has recognized that the reception of the fans gave him goosebumps
IGor Zubeldia knows that yesterday’s 2-1 is not the best result that Real Sociedad has for the return in Miranda, but he trusts that he and his teammates give a great level and achieve the pass to the final.
Zubeldia has assessed yesterday’s 2-1 against Mirands. “I think that from the minute one we were tense, uncomfortable, we did not know how to play the game that we have done, but without it we do our best we get the game through. We know that it is very difficult, but 2-1 gives us a small advantage and we have to be optimistic. It is true that the tie is open, but we will go for all, “he said.
He has been asked about the spectacular reception the fans made when they arrived at the Reale Arena. “I had never experienced anything like this before a game and I got goosebumps. It was brutal to see the fans cheering, I don’t know if it will be for that, but we weren’t comfortable in the field. We would like to be encouraged like us , without them we are nothing, and we appreciate that they are with us from the first minute, “he said.
Zubeldia has highlighted the Mirands level, with his friends Merquelanz and Guridi.“We knew that we had a great rival in front, it was already seen that it was not going to be easy. We have acquaintances in that team, both Martn Merquelanz and Jon Guridi are doing a great season and hopefully they continue as before, but that in the return no have your best day, “he said.
The one of Azkoitia play this Sunday his match 100 with the Real.“I feel very happy and proud to reach that number of games. I will never imagine getting to these figures being so young. I am still 22 years old and to see if it is the beginning of many more games,” he said.
Finally, he has already referred to the meeting this Sunday in Eibar.“Since Eibar is in Primera we have not won, it is a very difficult field, it squeezes a lot, but we will go for it,” he said.
