Mikel Oyarzabal stopped by ‘El Larguero’ of Cadena SER last night to discuss with Manu Carreño the Cup title won with Real Sociedad last Saturday.
– Trumpet controversy. “Anyone who has known Illarra since he was eight years old knows that he plays the trumpet with the txaranga at the festivals of his town every year. Asier did not bring the trumpet, Carlos Fernández got it, through a contact he had in Seville. He played it at the party after the game, at the hotel, with the Real’s anthem …. It was a moment for us to have a good time, without making offenses, without hurting anyone. It was our moment because we knew that Illarra also played the trumpet “.
-Athletic hallway in Anoeta. “What we don’t want is for them to feel obliged to do it. It is worth me with what we saw on the pitch, with Athletic holding out until the end when they lost, that you have to know how to do it and they knew how to do it very well, with Much respect. Although it is true that the rivalry is very great, there is respect. We have friends in the other team who have played with us and we do not want to do any harm. We are proud to have a team like Athletic in Euskadi, the respect is mutual and great. “
-The Cup penalty. “We were all clear that if I was on the field it would be my turn. I was clear about it but what gave me the most confidence was that the teammates trusted me 100%, that gave me an extra. Then you have to put yourself there and And there are times when you have to change things, I knew I had to do something different the next time I shot, especially with Unai (Simón) in front of me, with whom I have many stories behind and we know each other so much “.
-Future. “Maybe one day, for A or for B, both on my part and on the part of the Real, we do not want me to continue. It is useless to take oaths ten years from now, only the present will do. I feel like the happiest boy there is here. I feel dearly loved in Donostia, even if I’m not from here, at the club, in the city and I can’t say anything else. I don’t want to think about anything other than La Real “.
-Explosion of joy after his goal. “I had already heard the narration of the goal on the radio. Also the last part. It’s nice, you like that people get excited, that people love what you do.”
