Fiorentina midfielder Borja Valero is proud of his form this season.
Such has been his impact that Valero has been linked with return to Real Madrid.
â€śI am happy that the fans appreciate me. Itâ€™s magnificent to hear them chanting my name, especially as I am not a striker,â€ť he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
â€śIt is more difficult to make your mark and stand out without scoring goals. Perhaps this is my best season and I hope to remain on this level. Am I the symbol of the Viola? No, the symbol is the team and Vincenzo Montellaâ€™s football, as following those itâ€™s easy to look stronger.
â€śMontella is a winner. Even when we are leading a game, you can see if he doesnâ€™t like something as he gets very angry.
â€śPresident Andrea Della Valle is with us all the time and seeing him so hungry for success is important. In Spain the Presidents are calm and detached, so itâ€™s a new experience for me.â€ť
