Your role model at the first team?
Carlota: “I believe Depor Ladies have made a great job, and you can have any player as a role model.”
Sara: “The true is that every player at the first team is a reference, but if I have to choose someone is Tere [Abelleira], because she also had to leave home been very young, and was betting in a new project like this one. All the effort done in order to reach the elite was successful, and I want to follow that path. Also Iris, she is a player that’s a true professional. Sometimes you don’t notice it, but it’s key. “

References in football?
Carlota: “Without doubt Vero Boquete. She is here in Galicia, but after the season of Depor Ladies, anyone will do it, like Tere, Athenea and Iris.
Sara: “If I have to choose, I say that Tere Abelleira. She left home in order to fight for a dream. But also Vero Boquete and Mari Paz Vilas.”

How do you face next year taking in mind you will jump into the first team?
Carlota: “With great hope and hoping it will be a great year.”
Sara: “It’s a year full of hope for all the challenges. I want to debut at Liga Iberdrola and it needs a big effort. I am happy for the confidence and want to help the team.”

Do you have the goal of having a protagonic role on next season?
Carlota: “I already played with the team and hope to have more chances.”
Sara: “It’s a big challenge to train with the first team, because they are elite players, but I don’t want to put limits and it’s my dream and also my goal.”

What’s the goal for next season taking in mind the reinforcements in attack?
Carlota: I can play in several positions and will try to find a spot.”

Miriam is leaving, and María Méndez could leave too, does this means you will have chances at the centre of the defence?
Sara: “I am conscious of what it means to play at the elite. I know that I need to mature, physiologically and physically. I don’t want t put limits, but I understand that I am just arriving. Off course I will like to have minutes, but that depends on the coach. I will just give my best in order to have opportunities.”

How was your renewal?
Carlota: “I was ending my contract, and the club contacted me during the isolation. The true is that it was easy to reach the agreement, because I wanted to stay and they wanted to keep me.”

How do you see the team ahead of next season?
Carlota: “I believe the signings are bringing quality to the team, and we will try to cover the absence of the players that are leaving.”
Sara: “I believe all these renewals and the signings mean that we are making a competitive team, so we can repeat the performance and even to look higher. We will see a team with football and strength.”

Can you repeat the performance?
Carlota: “I believe the team is ready to make a good job. The first goal should be the permanence, and since then there’s no roof.”
Sara: “I believe that the fourth position wasn’t a lucky thing. The players lived it day by day and it meant a big effort. They had a nice reward and it was deserved. Off course we can repeat it, but we need to make a big effort as it won’t be easy for been Liga Iberdrola. It won’t be easy, but Depor have a high roof. Why we can’t end at the top?”
