Lasure: “The competitiveness of the division makes you give your best every day"
The presentation of Daniel Lasure as a new Eibar player until the end of the season
Daniel Lasure has been presented as an Eibar player.
In a press conference with club president Amaia Gorostiza and sporting director Cesar Palacios, the Aragon-born defender has spoken about the competitiveness in the Segunda Division, and how “it makes you give your best every day.”
“I look to support the team. It’s a united group that is on its way. It’s a time to help in every way they ask of me. I feel very good physically, in a good competitive rhythm and I’m prepared for what is needed. I’m a very disciplined person in my day-to-day life, and that comes through in my game. I try to adapt to the circumstances and what the coach requires of me in each moment.”
“Eibar is a team that has spent a lot of time in the making, a very emotionally compact group, and that allows things to go well when you arrive as a new player. The reception has been very good. I have felt comfortable from my first day, and that helps you give 100 percent from the first moment.”
“We are all on trial every day, it’s always a constant trial. I came to support in any way I can and give the maximum day-in, day-out. That’s important when you are trying to achieve things.”
“It’s very even in every position, whether it’s at the top or the bottom. That competitiveness makes you give your best every day. You can’t relax in second place because any team can beat you. That level of effort is what pushes you to be at your best every day and to try to win all of the games.”
“Eibar has a very consolidated squad, very strong and while there are injuries, there are players available who are at a very high level. You just try to support and give your best when you are called upon. What’s important is that the team functions, that the best player plays, and that generates competence.”
“I send a hug to Imanol (García de Albéniz) and I appreciate his commitment, effort and the motivation that he has shown from the first moment, and even after his injury because he continues to support us. The other day, he came to the game at Ipurua with crutches, and he is going to be one of ours until the end.”
“Dani brings what we are looking for, a boy with experience that knows this division, a player with the commitment to help the team and be part of the group. We are grateful that he was available to come and spend a few days on trial. We needed an immediate impact and because of that, we wanted to have a period of trial. Everything has been positive. He has given us confidence in how he can help and do his part and compete until the final moment in this very difficult mission that is the Segunda Division.”
“The team is demonstrating soundness. There are players who are having to adapt. You have to be so grateful to Sergio and Analtz, their positive mentality is helping the team…everyone is showing that. The team is showing it knows how to adapt to difficulties in a competition, and that’s a part of our strength. The squad is together, and those who are playing less are also supporting the team and remaining important. To those, we continue to show our gratitude for their commitment and their dedication. That is our strength.”
“Over the course of a season, there are always moments where you have highs and lows. In this case, it is with injuries, and at times results. It is worth appreciating the mental strength this group has had since last season through to this season, to know how to get back up in the face of difficulties, and always with the mentality of helping the team.”
“You have to value Gaizka, too, and the coaching staff that we know has reinvented positions due to the difficulties with the squad. The team, the squad, is the strength, it’s what makes us who we are.”
Daniel Lasure comes from the youth setup at Real Zaragoza and is a player who we have followed for a number of seasons. The circumstances have now allowed us the opportunity to bring him in because he was a free agent. Unfortunately, the reason for his arrival has been the injury to Imanol, and I wish him a good recovery, and that he gets better as soon as possible.”
“Now, this is your (Daniel’s) home, and I hope you enjoy a lot with us, that you suffer, too, because we are going to have to suffer. I hope that you support us with all your knowhow and your talent. I hope that you help to make us a great team and that you can achieve great things.”
