Nacho have confidence that he have never felt before

Ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions League quarter-final first leg against Liverpool, Nacho spoke to the media to discuss the game and his future. Nacho, perhaps in the shape of his career and in awe of how things are currently going. “It may be the best period of my career,” he said. “I have confidence that I’ve never felt before. It’s a dream come true and, I hope this confidence on the pitch will last what a player wants.” However, his future at the club is not curtailed. He admits that he could be influenced by a decision over Sergio Ramos’ renewal, or the arrival of new recruits could impact him. “Of course, regardless of whether they renew Ramos or sign a centre-back or two, these are decisions that affect my future,” Nacho said.

Sergio Ramos feels depressed

“It is normal, and everything affects the situation. I will look, analyze and talk with my club and my family, so I have spoken with the club, and I have this season and one more. I will make the best decision for myself after playing with my club”. What worries Nacho at the moment is the absence of Ramos. “Sergio is a teammate, he is a friend, and he feels depressed. It makes sense because he is the captain, and he will not be present during this critical period,” he said. “As a teammate, friend and Madridista, I can only say that the best for the club is that he stays. And for Ramos, the best for him is that he stays too”. Mohamed Salah recently said that Liverpool from the 2018 final closed the gap on Madrid, and Nacho agrees.

“Salah did not tell any lies,” he said. “Since that final, we have lost Cristiano, and they are the champions. But the difference is not that great. We enter the tie in a perfect way. We are focused on our work.” Diogo Jota is in great shape now, but Nacho doesn’t care whether it’s the Portuguese or Robert Firmino. “The most important thing is in the head, to be mentally prepared,” he said. “I like to think about myself, no matter who is against me, be it Firmino or Jota. Their front trio is impressive with a lot of connection between them.”
