Juan Miguel Jiménez Lopez (Con, Málaga, 1993) officially became juanmi when together 16 years debut with him red color Feather copa del rey, A historic day crowned with a goal. The forerunner of a football career that has led to a bad experience Chieftain already consolidated into one betis who walks side by side with the greats Federation, Today’s real madrid, in the distance, World, Talk about everything with the world.
- Betis is the leader of the league with Madrid and you are the starter. You have scored two goals in three matches and I scored 20 runs last season. Do you dream of the World Cup?
- Well, I am happy to start well with three wins, and at the individual level, things are going well for me. As an aspiring player, I’m not going to lie, there’s a World Cup and I’m going to try to do things well at Betis to make it difficult for the coach.
- And now, Real Madrid.
- It has some of the best in the world. Kroos, Modric … Although they are a certain age, they continue to give a great level, they show that age does not matter, what matters is performance. And then also unbalanced footballers like Vinicius or Benzema. He is the kind of player any team would want to have.
- Debut with Malaga at the age of 16 How did it affect you?
- It all happened very quickly. It took two years to debut from the cadet stage. I was lucky enough to be a fairly focused guy who never did anything on my mind, and I dreamed of it as a kid: to enjoy being a professional player.
- The whole city will know him.
- Yes, but he was cool. I was surrounded by a very good circle of friends and family. I really didn’t understand what was happening. I was going to train and pursue my dream, people knew me but I didn’t care.
- always football?
- and tennis. I really, really don’t like Joacun (laughs). I was good at it but there came a time, when I was eight years old, when I had to choose and quit tennis. I started with Malaga and didn’t have time for both the games.
- Do you think street football is lost?
- I started on the road. When I was four years old, he enrolled me in a village school, but I always used to play in the street with older people. That’s the essence of football, that’s where you get the mischief and today I reflect on it on the field. That football is a bit lost, the kids have better facilities and facilities.
- At the age of 22, he left Málaga and signed for Southampton in the Premier League. Was it complicated?
- Yes, very difficult, but I thought it was time to take this step. Although it is true that at the level of the game things did not work out as I did not get a chance to show the player who I was. But it helped me mature on a personal level, which was also important.
- Aren’t LaLiga players crazy about all the money in Premiere?
- Yeah… what I see now is that they’re doing more hustle and bustle between the clubs there. I think they don’t see LaLiga players that much anymore. Before Cucurella, the last person to go there was Fornals several years ago. I think they don’t see the Spanish league that much and they want to strengthen the market there.
- Is LaLiga getting devalued?
- off course not. In recent years, Spanish football has shown that it is one of the most important leagues in the world, Europe has teams going far, Madrid champions of the Champions League… the level is still high and this must be preserved. Go.
- I have always looked up to Ral, he has been my reference. I felt like he played like me. I liked his vivacity and intelligence.
- How bad is it when you freeze a game without scoring a goal?
- This affected me more when I was younger, I took my work home. But over the years now I have tried to mature and learn. Go home, smile and run away.
