More than once they discussed coach and technical secretaryabout the systematic absences of the player of thequarry of Real Madrid, who could not find his place neither in the center of the field nor in the half point. Braulio Vázquez,now technical secretary of Osasuna, maintains a strong link with Valencia: itsson Jesús Vázquez, left backof the youth, is one of the strongest promises of the Academy. And he recalled how it was his bet on the player: "For talent, I had no doubt that Parejo was going to be many years in Valencia, we signed him for five years, but not everything is talent, he had never left Madrid, for example Parejo had to combine talent and performance, and now he has achieved it, the first years were hard, but he has managed to adapt ", recalled the Galician sports director at Radio MARCA Valencia.
Braulio responds to one of therecurring criticism of Parejo, turnoversin own field. "If all the players were automatons and no one breaks the monotony, the teams do not go, it's funny when they criticize their mistakes, the whole Valencia game goes through it!If you do not risk, the equipment does not flow"And it reinforces his reflection:" The best thing that Parejo has is that he continues to risk telling him what they say. It has the hierarchy to ask for it. Others in their same place would hide.
