"I want the fans to identify with the team"
David Gallego insists that he has worked hard to live this moment.
His presentation has not disappointed anyone. David Gallego has been clear and direct in all his answers. Accompanied by the vice-president of RCD Espanyol of Barcelona, Carlos García Pont, and by the director of professional football, Francisco Joaquín Pérez Rufete, the new coach of the first team has assured that he faces this challenge "with a tremendous illusion".
"I can lead a project at home; it's half a dream because there's still a way to go. I hope it can be many years. I have a very clear objective: we are going to do our best and we are going to achieve it. The mother of our project is to be united with the fans, because united, we are stronger. The perico DNA is humility, suffering, commitment, solidarity, identity, feeling... We are a family and if we are capable of the team transmitting this feeling, we are going to make people feel identified with us", said David Gallego.
Gallego said that he has dreamt of this moment and that he worked for it "I had to be prepared", said the manager, who has remarked that he likes his teams to be "protagonists with the ball. My style is similar to others, but with nuances. We know it's going to be a year of a lot of demands and effort”.
The vice-president of the RCD Espanyol, Carlos García Pont, has celebrated the election of David Gallego as coach of the first team and pointed out that it is "the first step of a brilliant stage. It is a greater joy than other times because it is a person that I have followed and know". For his part, Rufete said that this is a very important day because this working group is going to give continuity to a project. I want to take this opportunity to thank the players, the people of the club and the fans for feeling again the illusion, the desire and the sense of belonging to our Club".
