Dídac says that it is time to "start fine tuning" the team's form, because "temperatures will be higher, and we will be working harder"
After two and a half weeks of preparation, Dídac Vilà acknowledges that the work being done during this time is satisfactory, although it is not possible to predict what will happen in this phase of conditioning before the competition.
He assures us that he and his teammates work hard "to get into the best shape possible", and recalls that "the most difficult thing has been having to train at home. We've successfully been having double sessions for some time now, and people are getting into shape."
For him, this is the time to "further fine tune" preparation "to get better bit by bit. It's feeling better," he says, while noting that "time will tell where we'll be at the key moment." What he doesn't hide is that "being better than your rivals will make all the difference. Now you have to focus on the day-to-day, on feeling that you are working and achieving the goal of getting in shape."
In terms of the training sessions carried out so far, he argues that "we have to push ourselves as much as possible. It will be hard because the conditions will not be optimal to return to competing at 200 percent. Temperatures will be higher, and we will be working harder. Besides, you haven't had any preseason games to get in shape. It'll be all at once."
Finally, 20 years on, he looks back on the Copa del Rey in Valencia with "incredible memories" of that day. It was my first year as Youth B. It coincided with reaching the final of the Copa del Rey, and going on to win. It was an amazing moment that I will always remember. Just like Tamudo's 'murri' goal. You didn't know what had happened, but the ball was in the goal.
