Eric Garcia: "Our idea got us to where we are now, and we will die with it"

Eric Garcia had no qualms about choosing Montilivi to look for minutes and grow under the orders of Míchel. However, the size of the team had nothing to do with what he was used to, even though he was only 22 years old. The poster came from another level. But he had the guarantee of City Football Group and the support of Barça, the club that had loaned him to Girona. The bet turned out well.

Martorell’s central defender quickly gained the trust of the Madrid coach and contributes to the magnification of the red-white story. Eric Garcia secured a place in the starting line-up and was not only a key player in the team’s ball delivery, but also the author of Villarreal’s second goal (1-2), which put Girona in the lead for the first time this season. Season.

Since then, Míchel’s men have been at the top of the table, fighting for the top spots with Madrid, Barça and Atlético. It is therefore understood that the defender was on loan from the Barça club When the game against Athletic ended, he landed on the ground as if he had lost a final with a draw (1:1). The commitment is total. And the attitude of the team is one of the keys to this sweet moment.

“When we scored, we had no control for a few minutes. The action of Iñaki Williams’ goal made us attack, with Miguel very high up. We didn’t have good coverage at the back.” The feeling is a little helpless, but it’s a testament to the team. Because of the mentality you have“, commented Eric Garcia in the mixed zone of Montilivi.

The centre-back insisted that “we didn’t sign the draw” and that “Athletic caused Unai Simón to lose time in goal.” Now “thinking coldly, It’s a point we have to make valuable against a very difficult rival “The best way to take advantage of this result is to win on Saturday,” he added, already thinking about Valencia.

Eric Garcia explained that he continues to grow with each game. “I have to improve a few things. The coach demands a lot from me during the week.” I think that makes me want to improve and become a better footballer.“. To Míchel he also said: “When I came to Girona I knew that there was competition, but I also knew that the coach trusted me a lot.” I am very happy with him.” At the same time he explained that ” the coach decides whether I go to the national team or not,” after entering Luis de la Fuente’s final pre-selection for Spain.

Follow the same path

Girona lost the lead alone and is now at the top together with Real Madrid. An unimaginable dream, but one that must be faced with humility and normality.

“It would be a mistake to think beyond that. We prepare the games very well week after week because every opponent is different and they know us better and better. We’ll see at the end of the season.” A priori, Barça, Madrid and Atlético should be at the top, but wow, we are doing very well. We have had two very difficult away wins (Osasuna and Rayo) and we have to consider this point as good, although we always want more. If we follow this line, we can achieve beautiful things,” he assured.

There is no doubt. “We have a very clear idea of ​​the game. We have to adapt it because all rivals are different, but we have to die with this idea. The coach always tells us. And we did it against Athletic. Pablo (Torre) had a chance at the end, a few Savinho games too. The team believes. Our idea got us to where we are now. We all feel identified. “Sometimes it’s a little risky, but it’s the way we play,” he concluded.
