Bruno Soriano is eager to jump on the pitch again. The Villarreal CF midfielder and team captain is looking forward to his return after two absences these past matches. "After these weeks of summer break and not being able to help the team on the pitch, it has all seemed very long. I'm used to playing every game, but things came this way and there are many more to be played. I will try to get back to my level as soon as possible, this matters very much to me". said Bruno.
He has analyzed the upcoming match against SK Rapid from Vienna: "It doesn't feel as we are group favorites, though I believe we have a very good team and that we will definitely perform well on the Group Stage, but we have to prove it. That means a good start of the competition. We know our opponent will play at his 100%. We will be ready for a very intense match".
The team captain also talked about Marcelino's plan on the starting eleven and about this season's squad. "Our head coach always changes the team in European competition. We are all prepared to face the match in perfect conditions. It is indeed a good way to be ready anytime if required by the team. When all the players are healthy it will be very difficult to even get into the list of players summoned for a match as we have a big team. Last season the excesive amount of matches affected us but this year it looks like we have an even stronger team."
Finally Bruno wished a good and healthy recovery to Mateo Musacchio: “I wish Mateo can be ready as soon as possible. It's important that he recovers well and now we have to support him more than ever. I have seen him train today and it has reminded me of my time injured. His injury was worse than mine and he has to go little by little. The most important part are the player's feelings”.
