This Wednesday Espanyol has published the second video of the #VineAlTemple series for the match on April 22 at 11.00 against Atlético de Madrid at the RCDE Stadium. In this the players are asked which were their first referents and teachers. Curiously (or not), the father of each of them was the first person with whom they learned to play football.
"I've always had my father behind," defense Elba Vergés explains. He tried to correct my mistakes, he told me to look here, not over there. " The father of midfielder Maria Llompart was, in the most literal sense, his "first coach", besides being the one who "advised him in everything". Brenda Pérez "just told me to have fun." The wildcard midfielder also remembers that his referents "were formerly smaller," but that "today there are more girls."
The video ends with Elba explaining to an eccentric coach that he had in his beginnings: "I had a Japanese coach who did very strange things, he put us swimming goggles with the bottom part painted black to look up, it was a scandal".
