Joselu joined the trainings on Monday after completing the medicals; the Galician striker avoided the comparisons with Lucas and said to be available for the game against Athletic.

New arrival Joselu completed the medicals in the morning and later joined the trainings. He talked to reporters and was remembering that he already played at the Riazor with the Galician national team, “It was a different stage, it was the first time I played at the Riazor and hope that I can play many games, which is my objective. I am only thinking of playing and join the trainings as soon as possible. “

He is thankful for the opportunity, “I hope to restore the confidence this club has put on me and demonstrate it each weekend at the stadium. I will give everything for this club. I joined one of the best leagues in the world and hope to join the trainings soon and help the team the best I can.”

The Galician striker is aware that people will compare him to Lucas, “I know him and talked to him recently. He is a great person. It’s clear that we aren’t the same. I hope to be able to help the team. I don’t come here in order to replace anyone. We are different players and will work for the club. I will give everything for the club. Lucas made a great job and hopefully he will succeed.”

He also knows that people will compare him with Andone, “The coach knows that he can count with us, but we are different. Andone is a physical striker, hardworking, and I believe we can create many scoring chances.”

The striker was describing how he lived deadline day, “It was a little crazy, in the end the goal was fulfilled. It was a matter that the clubs could reach an agreement and in the end I was landing in Madrid and the papers were made quickly. The important thing is that it was done and now I’m here.”

Finally, Joselu said that he is available for the upcoming game against Athletic Club, “I hope to adapt to the team and t be available as soon as possible. I arrive in order to work and give everything for this team. I made the whole pre-season and I am fine. I hope to be with the team.”
