“I wanted the Kroos shirt but my son said 'Kroos? No, Modric's ’”

Juli, veteran captain of the Alcoyano, expressed his happiness after the team's classification in the Cup at the expense of Real Madrid (2-1). In the words “El Larguero” (Ser), the soccer player admitted that they believed it was possible. “The pools were there and my dream was to reach the end alive.”

“For us this means everything because here we are now in a very complicated situation due to the coronavirus and for a few hours the people of Alcoy and of Alcoy, thank God, have been able to forget about the problems,” he said, referring to the team's ‘crush’.

Juli revealed that, by Covid protocol, the players' shirts cannot be ordered on the pitch. “Madrid contacted us to choose shirts and last week our sporting director came up with a list and told us to state our requests. I asked for Kroos's, but my son said 'Kroos? No, Modric's. ' And I had to change ”.
