Xisco returned to the starting lineup this past Saturday, something he hasn’t done since the Intertoto Cup. The Mallorca-born striker talked with newspaper El Ideal Gallego and said that he appreciates having Caparr??s’ confidence. The Fabril youngster talked about the bad record of Depor's strikers in the present campaign and also about his future.

Q: After all this time, you returned to the starting lineup on Saturday...
A: I'm very happy because the coach trusted me to replace Arizmendi.  Although we only managed a draw the squad showed a good performance, and I’m happy about it. During the present season I’ve only been able to play as a starter in the Intertoto Cup, but that doesn’t worry me. I am very young and the most important thing is to take advantage of these opportunities.

Q: How did you face returning to Fabril after having been in the first squad?
A: Well, after the injury I suffered, I was out for three months, and what I wanted was to play no matter if it was in the Primera or Tercera. I am a Fabril player, it's my team and I was returning to it, so it wasn’t a step backward. I am a member of the B team until they give me a professional contract, and to be honest I'm proud of it.

Q: It seems that the team is still missing a striker who is guaranteed to score.
A: No. What's happening is that the strikers are passing through a negative phase, but this happens and it’s not necessary to find an explanation. If the team wins and plays well, it doesn't matter who scores the goals.

Q: At this point the squad is playing all its cards for the present season.
A: Yes, if we win the next six points, we will be at par with Celta and be fighting until the end of the season. After this we would face the following three matches with enough confidence, knowing that we depend only on ourselves.

Q: And what about your future?
A: I have a contract until the year 2009, and for the moment I am not in a hurry. To hear people talking about my renewal surprises me, because nothing has changed.
