Christian Stuani is feeling good with Girona, a team he joined in 2017, and talks on how he’s playing the best football of his life.

In 2017, Uruguayan striker Christian Stuani joined Spanish La Liga side Girona.

Since then, he has scored 33 goals in just 50 matches, in what he calls the best football of his life.

“I’m very happy with how things have gone and how 2018 ended. We’re in a new year now. Overall, regarding the season so far, I am very happy,” he spoke to La Liga.

“Not only with myself on a personal level, but also about the group, which is what matters most to us. I think we are competing very well.”

“Both the previous season and this one, I have contributed many goals that have been converted into points for the team,” he continued.

“That is the most important thing. I am feeling very well, I think I’m in good shape and I have great confidence.”

The Uruguayan footballer previously played with Albacete, Levante, Racing Santander, and Espanyol, and he knows the Spanish competition well.

“It is all part of many years of hard work, experience and the maturity that one acquires over time,” Stuani added.

“I believe that, above all, it is my mentality of wanting to do things well and of having a commitment to the club -and also of trying to help my team with everything. That leads me to demand a lot from myself in every game.”

“You never know, but I do think that the best is yet to come. It’s what I always say,” the Uruguay international said.

“Keeping that in mind forces me to want to improve and also contribute everything that I can to the team. It is always good to set goals and dream about big things. That keeps you alive, attentive and eager to compete.”

“I would ask for the future of the club to continue growing. I always say that the group’s objectives come before personal ones, although obviously, each player has his own dreams,” Stuani asked.

“But I would ask that the club stay up and become more consolidated in La Liga Santander.”
