Jonathan dos Santos was very excited during his presentation at the Madrigal.
About 1,500 fans welcomed the new Villarreal CF player, Jonathan dos Santos. The president Fernando Roig was the master of ceremonies for the presentation: “We are very pleased to have signed a great player like Jonathan. I think it has been a great decision taken by the CEO Fernando Roig Nogueroles, because he is going to contribute much to the team. We hope to grow together. The Mexican player expressed also his happiness for having signed for the Submarine for the next five seasons. “For me it is the most important step of my career, I come to a historic club that is going to play three competitions and this is very attractive.
I will do my best, and I will try to play every game. I know there are great players in the midfield already but I think competition is always helpful in a world class team. I thank the club for believing in me and hope to bring many successes, “said the 24 year old midfielder, who declined several offers to wear the yellow jersey. “I think this team is very well suited to my style of playing, it is very technical and offensive. Moreover, my brother is playing here and we will fulfill our dream of playing together since we were kids. Gio is very happy at Villarreal and this has been an essential aspect of my decision. We will be the first Mexicans brothers to play together in a European team and it will be very special. He even told me that he wanted to end his holidays and start the preseason. We really want to start playing together. “
The player said he has fully recovered from his knee injury he suffered last season at FC Barcelona. “I’ve been working for eight months, I’m recovered and I feel great physically. Actually, before the end of the season I was already training with the group. I did not want to go on holydays in order to keep the best shape”, said the midfielder, who was contacted by Marcelino Garcia Toral before his transfer. “I had a talk with the coach and that influenced also my arrival, he told me what he wants: intensity in the training and competitivity. And that’s what I’ll do, “he declared.
