“The Osasuna followers do not come to El Sadar to observe the sport, they arrive to play it”

The goalkeeper Aitor Fernandez Abarisketa (Arrasate-Mondragón, Gipuzkoa, 3/5/1991) signed this summer time for Well being after terminating his contract with the I raised. Although he began the season as an alternative, he has already performed two league video games as a rojillo, wherein he has not conceded a objective, each at El Sadar. With Sergio Herrera recovering from an overload in his left knee, he goals to start out for Saturday in Vigo.

I learn you a tweet from @javierosasuna about you: “Aitor Fernández is the third Osasuna goalkeeper to not obtain a objective in his first two video games within the First Division, and the primary to win these two video games.”

–And that the statistics proceed going ahead, which will likely be good for the group (laughs). I am glad to have the ability to assist the group, which is at a hell of a degree and, when it is time to come on, it is simpler.

He performed his first sport by technical determination and the second attributable to a bodily downside with Sergio Herrera. What do you like?

-One of the best factor is to at all times play. We work for that, however we should study that sadly on this sport the eleven who play get the credit score, though there isn’t any eleven squad in any soccer group on this planet. The advantage belongs to everybody, all of us practice to play and the objectives are achieved by everybody or by nobody. Competitors makes us squeeze our asses and make us higher. That everybody trains exhausting provides up and the 20 factors we’ve got are everybody’s.

It premiered on matchday 10. How have you ever dealt with the substitution?

–From the position that touches you, you possibly can at all times contribute. For instance, within the day-to-day lifetime of goalkeepers, if we see that one saves so much, we normally goad one another to save lots of greater than the opposite. The position that every one performs at all times helps the group, not from whether or not I play on the weekend or not, as a result of that’s Jagoba’s determination (Arrasate) and no person can enter. It’s his fifth 12 months on the membership and what he has achieved right here is spectacular.

Osasuna has not conceded a objective in 4 of his 12 league video games, two with Herrera as goalkeeper and one other two with you. No matter who the goalkeeper was, it is a good signal for the group, proper?

–It’s clear that, if you happen to depart a clear sheet, you have already got a degree and it’s the host on this League so shut, however proper now I intend to win 100-99 all of the video games and that they rating 99 objectives, as a result of it is going to imply that we are going to be up and we are going to win the League (laughs).

They’ve 20 factors in 12 days.

-I set a considerably formidable objective within the locker room and mentioned that we needed to rating 21 factors earlier than the break for the World Cup, and we’re shut. There are nonetheless six at stake and all six must go battle. We’re in a position to get one thing optimistic out of Vigo and Barça’s day.

With such numbers at this level, is permanence nonetheless Osasuna’s objective?

-Within the historical past of the League, nobody with 20 factors has but been saved. There may be plenty of work left, though it’s true that we’re at a proportion of factors that persons are enthusiastic about, however it’s also true that I, final 12 months with Levante, went twenty-odd days with out successful and a nasty streak might come. That’s the reason the legendary phrase of going sport by sport is sweet. I at all times give for instance that when you’ve gotten an examination and you allow every part for the final day, you normally do poorly. That is why it’s important to go sport by sport, finding out just a little day by day and method every sport as if it had been the final. On this means we are going to obtain the targets, however the first is permanence. From there, to dream.

Have you ever needed to keep in mind within the Osasuna dressing room that streak of 27 video games with out a win that you just skilled with Levante between the tip of the 2020-21 season (8) and the start of 2021-22 (19) to cease the euphoria?

–I’ve needed to say it as an anecdote, to not get folks excited, as a result of right here it’s not essential. Anybody who involves see us practice is aware of that we’re at a really excessive tempo. There will likely be higher or worse video games, however the perspective of the folks is ten.

Do you perceive that the followers are enthusiastic about extra formidable objectives? With Europe, for instance.

-It’s clear that the typical factors say so, however we nonetheless must play in opposition to Atlético de Madrid, Barça, Athletic, Actual, groups which are higher than us by way of finances and gamers. It’s clear that we’re going to battle each sport, however we’ve got to maintain our ft on the bottom.

His first two video games as goalkeeper for Osasuna have been performed at El Sadar. How was the expertise?

-Superior. It’s true that, whenever you come as a rival, you understand how crowded you might be, though on one other degree, however when you’ve gotten the general public in your aspect, it’s spectacular. In dangerous occasions it helps you and a big a part of the targets which are met will likely be because of the followers. I at all times say that the Osasuna followers do not come to observe the sport, they arrive to play it.

A fan that applauds after the victories and after the defeats.

-It’s true. The video games we misplaced at dwelling in opposition to Getafe and Valencia weren’t the most effective for us, however the followers acknowledged the trouble even when issues did not work out for us. This makes it simpler to show the state of affairs round. With out such followers we’d be extra nervous at sure occasions.

El Sadar recorded final Sunday within the sport in opposition to Valladolid its second greatest attendance of the course, with 19,429 spectators. And that was performed at 2:00 p.m….

-It is the oyster. I feel there are additionally lots of people ready to turn out to be a member, however now they cannot. It’s one thing that speaks nicely of the followers. We recognize it and preserve coming again.
