Grandson and son of footballers. Born in Hondarribia, Gipuzkoa, on 3 November 1971. After having won Europa League in 2014, 2015 and 2016 with Sevilla FC it seems to be easier to explain the path I had occupied since 1990, first as a player and from 2005 as a coach.

To tell the truth, I’ve always had great references that have guided me in this learning process, also now in victory.

Thanks to them, colleagues, friends and parents I learned to get up after a fall, blow, or a goal.

Thanks to them I am better.
