West Ham United‘s player, Álvaro Arbeloa, spoke yesterday night with Juanma Castaño on El Partidazo, Cadena Cope´s radio program. It was the first interview given to a Spanish media, after joining the London club.
The defender admitted it is hard to join another club once you leave Real Madrid: “It’s like when you leave heaven, it’s difficult to pick a new place on earth. But I’m very happy because I am where I wanted to be”.
Arbeloa returns to the Premier League, a competition that motivates him: “’This was a chance to come to the Premier League and above all to come this year when not only does it have the players but it has attracted the top coaches and the competition is very open”.
Asked about Real Madrid, Arbeloa told that “they have started well. They won the Spanish Super Cup against Sevilla and the first two matches of La Liga as well. They should keep on this way”.
