That was my mission, and also my biggest challenge”, he stated.
“Garnacho was a ‘street boy’, from a Getafe neighborhood, and we immediately decided to transfer him to the club’s hotel, because he was not a good student. He was smarter than the rest of the boys, but he became troublesome. He was a scoundrel and did not behave well inside the hotel. He would sneak food into the room, candy and stuff, and he would hide his phone and stay up late at night,” he explained.

We ended up winning 6-0 and the entire coaching staff expected a negative reaction from him, a complaint or indiscipline. But it was the opposite.

He has that thing that special players have: they can be rebellious.”
