Betis: Borja Iglesias: “Therapy has given me a way of understanding life that doesn’t allow me to see”
meme ‘Panda’ He is the fashionable forward of LaLiga. With four goals in three days shares the leadership of the ‘Pichichi’ with Lewandowski. But his hot streak is nothing new. He comes from afar…and he comes from one of the lowest moments that Borja Iglesias lived as a footballer after landing at Betis full of doubt: 3 goals in 37 games in his first season.
His second campaign as an Attic began the same as the first. Just one goal in eleven appearances in the first 16 days. And doubts assailed his head. “I went to sleep thinking that I had not enjoyed my day. Sometimes it’s hard to talk about not being well. What people see is a soccer player who earns money and does what he likes “, he was sincere in an intimate conversation with the journalist Martin Einstein in the program ESPN’s ‘Bike Diaries’
“Go to therapy with my psychologists Patricia and Mara It has given me a way of understanding life that I was not allowing myself to see“, tells the forward with an open heart while pedaling through the streets and parks of Seville
A message and two goals that change everything
“There was a home game against Sevilla, I came out in the last minutes and I was bad, very bad. I went home quite upset, but Andrs Guardado detected how I felt and wrote to me that night saying that I was maturing as footballers, that everyone trusted me and that I was close to being fine”.
The Mexican couldn’t have been more right. Just a month after that day, Borja began to see the door regularly. Winning goal against Osasuna, goal in the defeat (2-3) against Bara, winning goal against Getafe, brace in the victory (3-2) against Getafe… and so on until adding ten goals in the second round of the championship.
“Since that moment I have had two very good seasons”. Beticismo knows it well. Last season, his 19 goals took the team to be fifth in the league, fight until the eighth of the Europa League… and win the Copa del Rey with two goals in the semis and one in the final!
