Fran García: “I’m coming back to show that I can play here”

Fran García is, above all, an example. The example that with professionalism, work and perseverance everything comes. Like a multitude of homegrown players throughout Madrid’s history, the bolañego was forced to leave La Fábrica in the direction of Vallecas in search of minutes and with the aim of making a name for himself in professional football. First it was on loan, and the following two years as a player owned by Rayo Vallecano. Although Madrid, aware of its potential, reserved 50% of its rightseither to re-fish it in the future or before a hypothetical sale.

Three years later, he returns with the ambition to give everything and show that he can be Madrid’s new starting left-back.the dream of any homegrown player. His five goals (one of them against Barça, eternal rival) and eight assists in 122 games with Rayo, in addition to his regularity and good defensive performance are sufficient arguments. Now he looks back and remembers his evolution with pride: “I see a boy who left home with enthusiasm and the desire to come and do what he liked best at the club of his dreams. I had the opportunity to grow and forge my career because I started out very young. I come back being a man and wanting to show that I can play here”.

Now that his first days back in Valdebebas are over, Fran has assessed his first impressions before the club’s media: “Going back to what has been my home since I left at the age of 13 makes you happy and proud after so much work.” Besides, He has also spoken about the high demand and the hard work of readaptation after returning from vacation: “The first days are very demanding, with a lot of gym and with the work of Pintus in the field that we all know”.

He has also had time to remember Carlo Ancelotti, his new coach, whose closeness he stands out from day one: “Try to correct any game situationespecially on certain positions or heights that I must have when leaving the ball or in the game. That closeness, especially to the new ones, helps us a lot”. Regarding the rest of the new signings, Brahim, Bellingham and Arda Güler, he highlighted “his ability to adapt” coming from other countries: “They are developing very quickly like the rest of the group and that speaks volumes about how we do things here.”
