Gonzalo Plata hopes to do more for Sporting next season.
Gonzalo Plata is in his home country, Ecuador, and has focused on his team, and in an interview with Extra newspaper he expressed his desire to continue from Assad to Sadr and be more influential in Lyon. “The title made me very happy. I hope I can do things better next season, and the idea is to add more to the team,” he joked with the goal he scored on the last day at Maritimo, which he sees repeatedly until his phone battery runs out. Just seeing the target. When I came from Portugal, I saw it until the phone battery ran out. That’s what I love to do, that’s what I always dreamed of.
The winger, who played the right winger, said that the moment he became a champion and got the medal, he remembered what it cost him to reach the top: “I remembered everything, and I thought about my mother and everything that happened as a player.”
At the title celebrations, when players boycotted Robin Amorim in the press room after his win over Boavista, Plata took the microphone and asked for more playing time, explaining in the interview with Extra that it was “a joke with his teammates”. As part of the selection process, he received advice from coach Gustavo Alvaro: “Tell me to be more active, try to get minutes.”
