Tomás Alarcón: “For me the Chilean team is a privilege”

Tomás Alarcón, national midfielder of the Spanish Cádiz CF, indicated on Thursday that it will always be a “privilege” to be part of the Chilean team, despite the fact that in the triple qualifying date of October, against Peru, Paraguay and Venezuela, he did not see action. In a press conference on Hispanic soil, the former O’Higgins player was clear in pointing out that “for me the selection is a privilege, and I know the quality of players that are there, so I go with the mentality of fighting for a position and if there is the possibility of entering a few minutes, I will give my best at all times.” I go with that mentality and I know how to separate things well between the club and the national team. You always want to give your best, but sometimes there are trips and the body does not allow it, but I always go with the intention of giving my best,” he added. In addition, the 22-year-old clarified the differences in the style of play for a cutting midfielder between national football and the Spanish league. “In Chile it’s about playing the ball a lot, having the ball, a lot of possession, here you play a lot on the sidelines and more defensively, but there the containment midfielder is the one who starts the exit, the one who maintains the balance in the team and they are totally different. That’s why in pre-season it was very difficult for me to adapt because of the differences between what is asked in Chile and what is asked of me in Cádiz,” he said. Finally, Alarcón anticipated what will be this Saturday’s match with Deportivo Alavés. “It’s a final, it’s a super important match, which can give us a lot of confidence to win and lose can leave us full of doubts,” he said. The ‘Yellow Submarine’ accumulates four consecutive matches without winning, a situation that has it in a last 16th place in the table with seven units.
