Celta Vigo boss Paco Herrera believes interest from the likes of Arsenal and other European clubs has affected the form of forward Iago Aspas.

iagoaspasThe in-form striker has netted six goals this season for the Galicians but has seen a dip in his performances after interest from Europe began around a month ago.

His coach Herrera has witnessed that dip in form and is keen to put things right before the season picks up following the winter break.

“The President has made it clear that Iago will not leave until the end of the season, so I am calm.

“What concerns me is that Iago has his head filled with nonsense. He is not at the same level as when he started the season.

“He began in the League in spectacular fashion and no-one could stop him in La Primera.

“But the reality is that he is now not at the same pace, and that worries me because we need 100 per cent.

“The praise is affecting his creativity, because he himself is creating very large expectations. And he did not have to do anything special to get attention, it is not necessary.

“In his mind there can only be a disappointment for wanting to show more of what is necessary, and that is what worries me because in terms of work and delivery there are no doubts. He always gives everything.”
