“He’s a great player. He is one of the best in the world and has now been awarded as such in Dubai [at the International Sports Conference]. By signing him when we did it was very high risk,” Miguel Angel Gil Marin told AS.

“I know that he is comfortable in our League, in our city and in our club.”
