GANDOY: “THE FIRST TEAM CHANGES YOUR LIFE”

23 Oct 2020
Yago Gandoy only played a few minutes on Sunday, but he was important after assisting for the winning goal. He was talking of how is the life after passing from Alevines to the first team.

Yago Gandoy addressed the media on Thursday. He was describing what he lived on the game against Salamanca CF after he assisted for the winning goal, "It was an incredible feeling. It was spectacular, at the last minute. It was worth to give us those first three points. We celebrated the victory as if we had won the Champions League and it gives us a lot of strength."

“When things are fine during the weekend, the start of the following week is much better. I feel good and this year I am one more member of the first team. Hopefully I could be a starter in the coming games, or at least to have minutes.” He added.

Asked about what’s to pass from the academy [he begun at Alevínes] to the first team, the midfielder responded that, "When you come from so low, you can't imagine that the opportunity will come. But once you go to Juveniles and Fabril you start to think that you have a chance to get there, and you take everything much more seriously. Being with the squad of the first team changes your life and more if you are from A Coruña, like I am, or like Adri [Castro], Valín and Juan [Rodríguez] and the people who come from below. It gives encouragement, that you can get there and it’s a pride to be there. I want to tell the lads at the academy that’s possible to land at the first team.”

The Galician player understands the doubts with the team after the first game, "We are in the first matchday. We have to go little by little. The important thing is that we have the first three points. The team will improve for sure, because we have a very good squad."

About the next game visiting SD Compostela, he commented that, “All the games in this group and in the whole Segunda B are tough. Compostela has the same base from last season. I know several of their players and I can tell you that it will be hard for us.”

Gandoy also commented the fact that the game will be played behind closed doors, "It’s clear that, at home, it is going to influence us. As everyone knows the other day the 3,000 people who were at the stadium pushed us to victory, it seemed there were 30,000.”
