Bruno: I’m sure many teams would love to trade places with us
After their demolition of Granada last Friday night, Villarreal midfielder Bruno Soriano was delighted with his goal and the great start to the season his team has made.
Following the convincing 3-0 victory against Granada, 29-year-old Villarreal midfielder Bruno Soriano shared the plaudits for his goal with team-mate Cani, whilst indicating that his team had bounced back well from their defeat at Real Betis.
“I struck it well, but truth be told, Cani set it up perfectly for me. We’re all playing at a good level and it shows. We’ve gone from less to more and we’ve finished off playing really well.”
The Villarreal captain also underlined that his manager makes sure that they’re ready tactically for each encounter, whilst also acknowledging that they’re a force to be reckoned with at El Madrigal.
“We prepared for games well with Marcelino. We did that against Granada, but at home we’re a very aggressive team when it comes to our attacking football and we’re getting the rewards we deserve in these games.”
A fantastic start to the season, with just the one defeat, sees Villarreal perched up amongst the Champions League places. Although admitting that it’s still early days in the season, he was more than aware that plenty of clubs will be looking at their progress, with envious eyes.
“At this stage of the season, seventeen points seems a lot. That’s the most important thing and we have to value them. I’m sure many teams would love to trade places with us. We have try to keep this up.”
Finally, Bruno spoke of the support of the fans and their calls for him to represent the Spanish national team, having received four caps between 2010 and 2012.
“The fans are phenomenal with the team this year. They really help us a lot and we notice their support. This is the way ahead for everyone. I’ve heard the fans singing ‘Bruno Selección’ and that’s because they have a strong affection for me. I work hard to be good and try hard, but it’s very difficult because I know that there’s top quality players in this country. I haven’t lost the desire though, that one day I might return to the squad.”
