Deportivo Alavés

“I’ve got some wonderful memories, as I coached this team in a great year.  At that time, there were players such as Valdano at the beginning, Adorno, Arambarri…a number of players who I had, and still have, a big affection for.”


“It’s completely changed, to become more beautiful.  It’s the same as what happened to La Rosaleda, how it was to how it is now is an impressive change.  Here too is a very nice ground.”

Loved in Vitoria

“Since we arrived yesterday, I’ve seen many friends who came to visit me and give me a hug, as I did with them.  It’s a capital that won me over, both the people and the city are lovely.”
