Vitolo already wears blue. His presentation in the Press Room of the Coliseum has been surrounded by great expectation and the footballer has been excited about this new stage in his career: “I thank the president for bringing me. Start a new path and I want to do it well and show that I still have football. We all did our part and the agreement was quick. I wanted to stay in Madrid with my family and Getafe gave me a chance to play. I have known Míchel for a long time and he is a great coach. “
Of course there are those who think that Vitolo is taking a step back in his career: “I don’t think so. I have been in big clubs and also in more humble ones. I come with the maximum enthusiasm. I am 31 years old and I have left. I want to play. When I saw the coach coming, it was a reason to come. Getafe has been in the First Division for many years and it is an ideal club to play and feel important. “Somehow it needs to recover after a few months without participating in Atlético:” Last season I had few minutes. Training and not competing over the weekend led me to make the decision and at Getafe I can have minutes and earn the confidence of the coach. “
The name of the technician seems important in Vitolo’s decision and this is how the canary explains it: “I have spoken with Míchel and he has told me that he believes in me. That is fundamental and he has told me that he wants to try me in other positions. We have not spoken about the club’s aspirations. It will be to stay and be as high as possible. What I need is confidence, to feel loved and important. “After the medical examination, on Wednesday he will start training with his new teammates.
That Vitolo is one of the most important signings of Getafe in recent times is demonstrated by the simple fact that it was Ángel Torres who accompanied him. The president praised his new stara: “Who doesn’t want footballers in Vitolo’s category? Welcome. It came about like this and I thank Atlético for facilitating this operation. Vitolo knew Míchel and we fixed it soon”.
