Huesca defender Jorge Pulido: Real Madrid move worst decision of career

Huesca defender Jorge Pulido admits he regrets moving to Real Madrid earlier in his career.

Pulido featured in yesterday's 3-2 defeat.

He told Marca: "I had another year on my contract at Real Madrid and, on September 1, they told me I wasn't going to continue. So you're without a team in September and you can't sign for anyone unless there's a long injury.

"I spent two months without a club and received a call from Albacete because a kid had seriously injured himself and they had a spare place. When you go without a team, it's difficult to keep up. I kept working, with a fitness coach and the excitement of a little boy.

"I went to Albacete and had two good years, then I went to Belgium to experience something new and it was good. But I received a call from Huesca, I saw the project they had, I came to play here. Maybe the decision to go to Real Madrid was the worst in my life and coming to Huesca has been the best."
