Neto Murara is one of the main protagonists of LaLiga with his performance as a goalkeeper. In his interview to LaLiga he recognizes that in Valencia CF he has found his place.
What does it mean for you to be a goalkeeper?
For me being a goalkeeper means being able to do what I love doing for living. I never saw myself doing anything else, I am a dreamer, I have many personal goals in my life and my career, and I will do my best to reach them. To be able to enjoy and be able to live the way we live is only for a few, so I try to live intensely as much as possible. I think I was born to be a goalkeeper.
The role of the goalkeeper has changed a lot in recent years
Football has changed a lot, now the game is very dynamic, very fast. If a goalkeeper does not participate you have one less player, you need the goalkeeper to help you, to pause the game ... every team needs a good goalkeeper, because that is where everything starts, it can give you points and avoid a draw or defeat, then it is a fundamental position.
There are many goalkeepers who have made history in Valencia CF, like Cañizares, who means a lot for the Club. Casillas with Real Madrid, from a young age has made incredible seasons. I always liked these two goalkeepers. I try to do my own thing and I am very happy about that.
It's his second season at Valencia CF
Watching from the outside, Valencia CF always called my attention for its history, had great players, competed in Europe and I was lucky to find a place where I feel good. I had a very quick adaptation and from the first moment I felt at home, all this makes me feel better every day.
Expectations I had
I needed to feel important again, it was what I was looking for. Reach a league like the Spanish, a club with this dimension. Last year we achieved an important goal, I felt good, protagonist, it was what I was looking for, but also very excited to be able to improve and grow, making the next season better.
What do you think of Mestalla?
I am fortunate to be able to play in this stadium, with that atmosphere, with the energy that this profession generates.
What is the OBJETIVE?
On my part and my colleagues, we sacrifice ourselves to the maximum to take Valencia CF to the place it deserves, which for me is to play in big competitions, win titles...
