Rodrigo Hernandez aims to be one of the mainstays of the new Spain of Louis of Origin. Indisputable for Guardiola At Manchester City, the man from Madrid is clear that despite the good level he showed at the World Cup as a centre-back, his ideal position is midfielder. “Qatar was a learning experience and I think I had a good performance. I showed myself that I can be versatile, but I think the one where I perform the most and the best is as a pivot “, he said in the press conference before the Scotland-Spain this Tuesday.
Rodri also supported the speech of Iago Aspas, where the Galician spoke about the lack of a plan B in Qatar. “Maybe it’s true that before we had players with the same profile and when we needed another alternative we didn’t have players with that quality,” explained the ‘citizen’, adding that he will try to do more than -attack with La Roja. . “It is an important weapon, especially against defenses that are withdrawn. In my club I am very proud of myself and in the National Team I want to implement it”, he said.
Scotland, a fierce rival
“I know them well. They are important, they have experience of playing big games in the Premier League… Great players.”
a complicated fight
“This is one of the toughest games in the group. We have to put in a good performance to get all three points.”
The series of Busquets
“I try to assume it as naturally as possible. I’ve been in the National Team for a few years and what I want is to make my way and try to improve every day. I know what to do to return, give the best version of myself and do my better football”.
The improvement in the second half against Norway
“There are different profiles. Ceballos handled the ball very well and that gave us a bit of control, which maybe we lacked. Iago is a striker, more vertical. They are different profiles and the change is very important to win against Norway” .
“They are a very physical team, who defend in the low blocks, but they also have quality players. We are going to continue on our way and try to take advantage of the opponent’s weaknesses.”
Does it look central?
“The coach spoke clearly. Qatar was an apprenticeship and I think I had a good performance. I showed myself that I can be versatile, but I think where I perform the most and best is as a pivot “.
“He had a brilliant performance, he made two great saves.”
The famous plan B
“It’s probably true that before we had players with the same profile and when we needed another alternative we didn’t have players with these qualities. Having a forward allows you to shoot crosses, be more vertical… The coach will combine these qualities to play in the best way. One day we played with Olmo and Gavi on the wing and then those who came out contributed others”.
What De la Fuente asks of the pivots
“I know very well what he wants from me in that position. It’s a common position for most coaches: they’re looking for a solvent player, who loses the ball a little, reliable, able to filter, decisive at the start ball and order. his colleagues. .To have a little more arrival, maybe, that’s what he asks of us”.
“I have been in the National Team for a while and my intention is to grow and infect the other boys, so that they learn is my goal. Zubimendi is a high-level player, trying to see him what we do, but he is a player who already has a high level of level. It depends on what the coach wants”.
His long shot
“It is an important weapon, especially against defenses that are withdrawn. In my club I am very proud of myself and in the National Team I want to implement it. It is not a matter of shooting for the sake of shooting. I will try more completely myself”.
