Ximo: "You have to try to make a jump in the classification"

On the option of falling to the left-handed band this weekend, he commented that "I will be available to the master if he considers it appropriate."


Ximo Navarro has regained prominence within the Asier Garitano team. The Alavés defender appeared before the media in the sports city of Ibaia. "I am happy. After having been several days out of the team, now I have played some games in a row and that is what we want all the players, ”he said in footballers.

Ximo can play both central and in the last two weeks (Eibar or Madrid) and right back (he or Martin could cover the loss of Duarte by penalty this Saturday in Granada). “Maybe I feel a little more comfortable at the center but I can also play in the band because you see something I have done many times during my career. The important thing is to add minutes because that is good for me and also to help the team, ”he added. On the option of falling to the left-handed band this weekend, he commented that “I will be available to the master if he considers it appropriate. He is the one who makes the decisions. It is usually better to play on a natural footing but there are also many players who do it with a changed leg and get used to it very well. I already played left back with Mallorca or Almeria, for example. ”

On the rival, he said that “Granada is one of the revelation teams of the season that started very well, making great football and perhaps now they have entered a small pothole of results. But they are upstairs, in a comfortable area and away from the descent posts. They are not playing badly and even less at home. It will be a tough game there. ” From the Vitorian team, he observed that “I see Alavés well now. We play looser, braver and start adding out with victories like Eibar's. We are in a good moment and we will travel to Granada with the intention of adding the three points. It is clear that these are the matches that you have to try to win because they are the rivals with whom you are going to play permanence. There is little left for the Christmas break and we have the opportunity to make a small jump in the classification. ”

Ximo also talked about the VAR. "There it depends a lot on the referee who whistles but if there is a contact like Aleix's the other day against Real Madrid, the normal thing is that he will consult him so he can see it." Navarro was born in Granada but never played in the Nasrid team because he was very young when he moved to Mallorca with his parents.
