How was your experience in Udinese?
They commented very well on me, the team and the city, and when the opportunity to sign came, I did not consider it. I think it will be a good thing for me to finish the one-year race. I was right. I am satisfied with my decision. Hope this season can end smoothly, and then we will see what to do next.
There have been no matches for a long time, but now it seems that the usual Llorente has returned.
I feel better every time. Maybe it didn’t hurt me after playing for so long. You will feel uncomfortable only after training because you do not have a rhythm of the game. For football players, the important thing is the game. I found it bit by bit, but I want to keep improving. The position for so long is not good for me, and now I must maintain my composure to restore my best condition.
It took him almost a year to score again, which is a winning streak for you. How does it feel to score?
I am alive again. This is the feeling I miss. Of course, if I continue to play football at the age of 36, it is precisely because of that, because I feel good on the ground or when I score. It’s hard to forget. I want to enjoy it as much as I can.
He recently said: “Udinese is very small, but everything is first-rate.” What makes it so special?
Although I already know the club well, when you arrive here, you will realize that the organization of the club is very large. The possibilities we have in the stadium where the facility is also located are incredible. We have everything to do our best. The club owner knows how to help the players. Everything football players need to do their best is here: physical trainers, various trainers…the way of working is different. I am very, very happy, and I hope this year is over.
As the second striker, his position went back again. During your time in Seville, did you see Baptista-style players?
Yes, I must live a different life now. We are playing 3-5-2 and we want to stay tight, especially when we are playing with some known teams, if they play internally, it may make us back down or get injured. We strive to be compact. Maybe I have fallen behind a lot in many games, which is not ideal. But there are many teams that can speed up the game and make us go further.
