Aihen Muñoz: “I learn a lot from a great player like Monreal”

first_imgAihen Muñoz was called to be the owner of the left wing of the Royal Society in defence. Until the arrival of Nacho Monreal, which increased the competition in the position and relegated him to the bench until the arrival of the Cup. Now he opens the door of ownership again in league with the injury of Monreal. Aihen Muñoz, on his loss of ownership – Is this season still just as exciting for Aihen despite the fact that Monreal’s arrival has taken minutes away?Yeah right. For me being in the first team of the Real is a dream. Football has these ups and downs and now it turns around and I ended up playing.-Do you also learn when you don’t play in Primera?Yes Yes. In all situations you learn. In the day everything is an apprenticeship, especially for a young boy like me.– Do you consider that Monreal’s arrival hurt him?No, I don’t think so. I’m learning a lot. I had not experienced this situation of being on the bench and I am getting many positive things, and I learn a lot from a great player like Monreal, who advises me and helps me a lot.– It has given him many laps to the head since he lost the title in day 3 by the arrival of Monreal?Sure, because you always want to play. There are moments of downturn. But what you have to do is train well day by day.-And what was he taking refuge in?In training and giving everything in training, and stay with the clear awareness that I do my job well.-What were the most complicated moments?I could not tell you what they were exactly, but when you see that you do not play they give you dips, but you recover on a daily basis and you remain calm because you always give it your all and train well. -And if I give you a choice: win the Cup or enter the Champions League?The Cup, no doubt. We have not won a title for a long time and that would be amazing. It would be something precious.-Next rival, Betis …It has a very high level and high quality players, but we also have them. It will be nice to see and we will go out for all. It is clear that we will create dangerous situations, but we must be prepared to defend, that they also attack very well.– Does losing at home against Villarreal make them travel to Seville with more need?We are calm, because we are going game by game, and although it is difficult to win at Betis’ house, we will go out to make our brave game, taking advantage of the good dynamics away from home, to continue at the top. Aihen Muñoz, between winning the Cup and entering the Champions League – Happy to play again in the Cup?A lot, yes. I wanted to go back to eleven and it went well in Ceuta. I felt good, the team also went out for everyone, and in the end I was comfortable. We did the job well and became calm at home. And let’s see if we continue against Espanyol the same in Copa.– The fact that Monreal continues touched and the option is opened makes him take the week with more illusion?Yes that excites after not playing so long. Then Imanol will decide, but I’m looking forward to it.center_img -How is the relationship with Monreal?We get along really good. We are Navarrese and they are football things. It helps me a lot at all times and I take all his advice.– Do you feel that it is a good opportunity to have continuity again in the first team?I really want to play and you never know. I am prepared to play and then what has to come, it will be seen. Last year I lived on the bright side, and this year I have the other side, but I am calm, because I am a young boy who has yet to learn a lot.– At some moment it was considered to leave the Real one in the winter market?Nerd. I am very happy here, it is where I have always wanted to be, in my house. I’m very happy.– Is it compatible to do something big in the league and the Cup?Is that if we want to be with the best, we have to get used to compete two games per week, and I feel that we are more than physically prepared to do so. We are in both butt competitions and we go for both. – Did Imanol tell you something when Monreal arrived knowing that you were going to have fewer opportunities?No, it’s going. This is professional football and the coach decides who has to play, and has now decided that it is Nacho who plays. But this can change and you can choose me to play from now on. And I always work with that illusion.-You are always smiling, don’t you even lose it after all this time without ever playing?Impossible. Because this is a dream for me. If you tell me this a year and a half ago I don’t believe it. But it is clear that I want to play.– How a year ago in his debut at the Bernabéu has changed?I’m not the Sanse kid anymore. In that above all. In the desire not, I continue with them. “The Cup, without a doubt. We have not won a title for a long time.” “When you see that you don’t play they give you dips, but you recover on a day-to-day basis”last_img read more
