Everybody has their strengths, says Alves

Sixth season in Valencia this year was Diego Alves. The Brazilian goalkeeper has started the running league season on the substitute bench, but he quickly returned between the rods and does not have to regret so much that he did not get his transfer to Barcelona, ​​which he was interested in during the summer…

> I am satisfied here During the summer there is constant debate and somebody is moving in. I am here for six years and staying in Valencia was my goal I could not imagine going away At 31 I feel I have a lot of experience I am calm and every day I’m trying to improve.It counts on what I’m going to show on the lawn, “ Alves realizes.

Alves has been eliminating seventeen penalties in the Spanish league two weeks ago in Leganés and became the new record holder of the championship prepared his legendary Andoni Zubizarreta, and then he improved his performance in a duel against Atletico Madrid, during which he did not lose Antoine Griezmann or Gabi in the Brazilian, Alves in Spain faced 41 penalties and 19 destroyed himself, one shot helped him and one shot did not hit gate.

“There are no secrets. Every footballer has his / her strengths and I’m good at catching a penalty. The gate is large and the penalty shootout has plenty of options. But I’ve already laughed, I was lucky in this respect.It was natural, but I never thought of some records, it just happened, “says Alves.

The 31-year-old Southamerian is in the base line of Valencia fighting Mathew Ryan and another competitor is Jaume Doménech , with whom the management signed a new contract last month, and now all three are trying to convince the new helmsman about their qualities, with the team a few weeks ago, Pako Ayestarán, replaced by Cesare Prandelli. he trained honestly. In the opening two league matches, the coach had more options and chose someone else. You accept this, now I’m catching and I’m happy. I never made any thoughts about whether to catch or not. Just like any other post, there is competition in the gate.In our case, perhaps more is debated on the basis of having three goalkeepers, but that’s normal, “Alves said.

” Prandelli is very hot, he is a trainer with many years of experience. We will try to adapt as quickly as possible to what he wants us to do. We must work and improve not only on physical but also on tactical aspects. That’s what the coach is working on at this moment, “ is evaluating several-day co-operation with a new coach.
