“Pacheta asks me to be dynamic, aggressive in pressure and to reach the area”

first_imgHow was your signing signed by Elche?A Spanish intermediary called me to tell me that the Club was interested in me. Then Nico (Rodríguez) called me and everything went quickly. I signed two years and a third party.Has Elche improved in January?The first thing is that the three companions who left are three friends who helped me a lot, especially Yacine. The player changes are normal and the three signings will help us. Jonathas is a great forward. I see him well, with presence and speed. Victor has quality to help us in the center. Escriche is dynamic and Josema will add competence to the centrals.And what does Elche aspire to?At the moment, we are sixth. We are happy because we are close to 50 points. We do not look beyond the next game, it is not the time. To add in Tenerife we ​​must be one hundred percent.Why do they add more outside than at home?I don’t know, I can’t explain it. Maybe because of the way the rivals play; We bet on the same style inside and outside. At home our matches are good and we deserve better results.Do you feel valued by the fans and in the city?If much. I have come with my wife and my son, who will turn three in March and start going to school in Elche. Every week we go to a language school to communicate better (the interview is in perfect Spanish).On the other hand, are you waiting for the call of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to play?I have not known my selection for a long time. Let’s see what the future holds. In my national team there is a lot of level and it has a great future. If I continue like this, I wait for a call. How is your adaptation to Spain and your new team?Very good. I like Spanish football, La Liga and Elche. I had little time for adaptation because when I was starting to get well, I chained two injuries. The first, in the quadriceps. And then the adductor. I am happy and I feel better every day. Is it considered a midfielder of work or arrival?Both, I do not care to be defensive or offensive pivot. I just want to be in the field, although I like it more ahead.What does Pacheta ask for?That he is in contact with the ball, that it is dynamic and reaches the rival area, refolding everything he touches. From the center I must move the ball to the bands and be aggressive in the pressure.How is it different from Ramón Folch?Ramón (Folch) is more protagonist in the exit of the ball. Organize and give fluidity, manage the tempo. The recovery task is of both.Do you feel more protagonist after the departure of Villar?No. It is an important casualty, but the team is above all. I add five straight games as a starter, but I don’t feel added pressure.With 20 years debuted in Ligue 1, but had no continuity. What happened?Rennes went down to Second and changed coach. I was a year blank, with only a few games in the subsidiary. I decided to step back to get stronger. I signed for the Red Star, in Third (Second B in Spain). We went up as champions and last season, as captain, I had a good but we went down because there were three coaches and we played an hour from our city.last_img read more
