Eric Garcia, central for the National Team and Barcelona, spoke at a press conference the day after Spain’s defeat against Brazil in the final of the Olympic Games.
Feeling after the defeat in the final: “You have those minutes where you think you could have gotten the gold because it was a very tight final. But when five or ten minutes pass you reflect on what you have achieved and it is a pride for us. We have to be, and we are, very proud of what we have done. We value it and enjoy it as it should be. “
Tournament balance: “It has been a very different tournament for us. We have been able to enjoy this experience of being surrounded in the Villa of the best athletes. A unique experience that I do not think can be repeated. In terms of sport, the fact of playing against the best teams does more great what we have done “.
Vallejo’s move: “In football, sometimes you get it right and sometimes you miss it. We are lucky to be a team, no one is singled out for a mistake. The team showed incredible pride and claw. We are very proud.”
Messi’s departure: “Obviously I would have liked to share a dressing room with him because he is the best player in history. There have been things that they have done that he has not been able to renew. A very big shame, but I wish him well. It was difficult news to digest because he the best player in history is leaving our team. “
