He told Mundo Deportivo: "You never give up being a starter, but you cannot expect a place as soon as you arrive. I work daily and I strive to be ready when the coach tells me when I'll play.
"In the short time that I have been in the Primera I think I have done quite well. It is true that Jordi, who is 30 years old and will turn 31, is the starter, the club believes it and I believe it too, I am more a long-term project. I want to be prepared for when the coach decides to play me, but without being arrogant, I come to fight to play and I want to make it difficult for Jordi."
