Iborra: “Levante and Villarreal have the values ​​that I like”

Gabby Barker



Wherever he has passed, he has worn the bracelet.

I do not know how one becomes a captain or how one becomes one, I suppose that it is something that takes in the character and the way of being of each one. I have been fortunate that the technicians I have had in Seville, Levante and Villarreal, have wanted me to be a captain and also contribute to the team from that facet.

How have you faced that responsibility throughout your career?

For me it is a responsibility that I like, it seems beautiful and, I am proud that I am valued for a function like that. It is something that I accept with responsibility and try to do my utmost to help the team and the club in that chapter.

What is the role of the captain in a locker room?

One when he is captain must be clear that it is an important responsibility, and above all that it is not always pleasant; you know that there are complicated and good moments, but in the complicated ones you must show your face. I like to show my face for the team in the field and outside of it, it's something I've always done and therefore I like to do it here too.

What values ​​should a captain represent?

I think you should do what you can for the group, all the things that unite the group are good, and that is what I tried here and in the other clubs. Not only is a captain wearing the bracelet, the obligation of a captain or a player, is to try to help on and off the field, and that is something I like to do.

Now it's time to face Levante. Special match, I imagine.

It is strange to play against Levante, everyone knows what unites me to them, and although there have been other times and it is not the first, it is true that it is always very special to face them.

What does the Orriols set mean to you?

It is the club that formed me as a person. I arrived as a child and left as a man. I spent many years with them, I am a member, as is my family, and it is the club that gave me the opportunity to become a professional footballer.

With your notable differences, do you think that Villarreal and Levante have certain similarities?

Levante and Villarreal are very similar clubs. They are family clubs and with a clear philosophy, values ​​that I share; So I feel very good on both teams. I liked being there and I like being here, I think it has been easier for me to arrive and adapt for that. They are very familiar clubs, clubs with values ​​and a way of doing things that closely resemble my values ​​and my way of watching football, so I like to be part of them.

What seems clear is that it will be an open and attractive meeting at the Estadio de La Cerámica.

It will be a game with two teams that find goal easily, we are two teams with an offensive vocation, which makes this an open and beautiful match. We are scoring many goals and we have ease, but it is true that we are trying to reduce the goals against us, something that will make us much more competitive.
