He confesses that the weeks are "getting longer" because of circumstances that "we have never experienced." He explains that he tries to get away from the long confinement and that he tries to distract himself with other activities such as “drawing, playing basketball, ping-pong or driving on a simulator” that he has at home. Raúl de Tomás, RDT, prepares himself thoroughly, keeping in mind that he must "be ready", if the competition resumes soon, to "give back to our fans what they want so much, just as we do."
He is aware that we have entered a decisive phase that can determine when and how training could start and expresses that "we want to compete", but for that to happen, "high safety guidelines must be given, with optimal conditions and with protocols that we have to follow."
He accepts that it will be time to "comply with certain rules and do it with the utmost responsibility so that, when everything is more normal, we will get down to work, as we have work to do."
Despite the break, forced by this pandemic, he stresses that, “I am very happy. I only have words of appreciation for the fans, the coaching staff and for everything that surrounds Espanyol, because it is epic. The virus has paralyzed everything, but if everything restarts, I will do my part, and my colleagues will do the same, to achieve our goal.” And ends with a pledge in that same direction addressed to the Blue and Whites' fans, in which he demonstrates his commitment “We are going to leave everything on the pitch to achieve what we have been searching for so much this season,” he says, waiting to see how things will develop in the coming days.
