In an interview with Radio Sir, Tony Martinez said that he has found in the Portuguese league the stability he needs to continue to develop and the ability to “knock on the door” of the Spanish national team.
“Portugal has given me stability, in Famalicao and Porto. I am calm, I am happy and very happy to do things well. I went through a bunch of loans and teams that didn’t give me any benefit. The players need stability, which I have found now,” said the Spanish striker who scored this season. Three goals in four games, I have all the experience, which made me learn and be the player I am today, but I am happy to find the perfect place.
“I am very happy to start the season as I finished last season, scoring goals and winning the team. I hope he stays. FC Porto is the elite club, the champions, one of the best clubs in the world. When the opportunity to play comes, you have to grab it and take it. I had the coach’s trust and I think I provide service.”
In response to a question about whether he wants to be called up for the Spanish national team: “The only thing I can do is to be happy for the players who keep scoring goals to keep knocking on that door. I am very happy to call up Abel Ruiz (Braga), it means that the coach (Luis Enrique) ) is aware of what’s happening in the Portuguese league. The only way to get involved is to keep scoring goals and playing well. If that’s the case, we’ll see, it can happen. It’s a dream I work for every day.”
