" The renewal offer of Celta was ridiculous compared to the current market. After trying to improve the conditions but my decision no longer was taken solely for the economic, "said the attacker in an interview on the program" AoContraataque "of the Radio Galega.

Pest to everything, the attacker from Santiago, which this course has 13 goals with Espanyol, is still feeling" celtista ", and wishes" the best "to his former team, which will be measured this Wednesday in Cornellá-El Prat. "At no time this season I thought that leaving Celta was a mistake, it was a decision I had made because it was time to take on a new project, in which they would trust me." When I left Zaragoza, my intention was not to return to Celta, "said Borja Iglesias, who missed" a little more affection "from the Vigo leaders.

" They said they wanted to renew me but the coach -Antonio Mohamed- did not call me at any time to be on the team I did not know if it was true or not, nor from the sports management they called me I know that Felipe Miñambres talked a lot with my agents but the last message I exchanged with him was before the playoff of promotion with Zaragoza ", explained.

He did not hide his admiration for Iago Aspas, with whom he speaks "from time to time", although he does more with Kevin Vázquez and Lucas Olaza, with whom he has "a great friendship" since his time in the subsidiary leste. "The improvement of Celta since the return of Aspas is very evident, I think Celta's position in the table is not according to the level of its staff, it has very good players, but Aspas is the best for me, I admire it very much both as a player and a personal because he gave me a lot of advice ", revealed.

Borja Iglesias said he was" very happy "with his performance in his first year at LaLiga, and he keeps" the dream "of being summoned by Luis Enrique Martinez to play with the absolute selection.
