The Uruguayan international has scored 45% of the goals Girona has so far in the 2018-2019 season of La Liga tournament.

Christian Stuani has scored 12 goals in the Spanish La Liga 2018-2019 season.

The Uruguayan follows fellow countryman Luis Suarez, who has 15 goals, and Argentina’s Lionel Messi with 21.

“I personally hope that what is to come will be even better, but I have to say that at the moment I have very good numbers for goals,” he told La Liga.

“I have to continue working to try to grow and be able to continue giving points to the team.”

“I think it’s the most important thing for a club like us, that I can score so many goals. It is reflected in the standings, and I have that mentality of continuing to grow -because in football you have no limits and you can always improve,” he explained.

“Looking at it like that, it’s incredible, but I’m keeping my feet on the ground knowing that it has been difficult to do what I’ve done. I know how difficult it is to score goals, even if it seems easy or simple.”

“I always have that in my head. I’m very proud of what I’ve done, because it not only gives the team peace of mind, it also gives them confidence. That helps the team and the atmosphere surrounding the club,” he commented.

“I think that’s essential for a side playing their first few seasons in LaLiga. I will try to continue scoring more goals, helping the team, and – why not? – improve on last year’s numbers.”

“I consider myself a team player. I never give up on a ball. I always try to be in the right place at the right time in order to score goals. Inside the area, everything that happens presents a chance for me to score,” the Uruguayan said.

“I’ve always tried to be ready so that, when the chance comes, I can be in the right place to score. Now I also have a little experience. Over time you improve many things, but I think the mentality of wanting and thinking that you can do it is also very important.”
