In the summer 2018, Borussia Dortmund secured the services of Paco Alcacer. During his debut season, the stormer, who was heavily committed after the initial loan, shot full 18-league goals, but was often only allowed to play as a joker. No matter what the 25-year-old is.
That he rarely stood on the lawn more than 90 minutes was due to the fact that he “almost two years did not make three games in a row”, but between the playing times he had now “worked incredibly hard” not to miss any more games, said the Spaniard, who rejects the reservist anyway in conversation with “Sky Sport”.
“I don’t like sitting on the bench because I am a very ambitious person. I’m a cheerful, funny person, but when I sit on the bench, I don’t like anything anymore, then I’m a complicated guy, which I don’t like myself,”Alcazar becomes clear.
Also the missed championship –the BVB played a nine-point lead on the FC Bavaria- depends on the offensive player. He had to “often, very often” think about it, according to the national player. And further: “We were so close to winning a big title and it was relatively easy. We had ten or nine points ahead of the Bavarians. It was a big head start. Football has its moods and we did not make it.”
Alcazar: 18 league goals for the BVB were”not enough”
Above all, it was annoying that there were games that the BVB”should have won”, says Alcazar. Therefore, he was satisfied with his profits from 18-hits, but as it was only enough for second place, it was not enough. No wonder the goal of the former FC-Barcelona stormer is clear: “I’m trying to help with goals, that we can climb another place in the table up.”
The attacker also said about his first change abroad: “It was hard at the beginning, since I’ve never played with a team abroad before,” Alcazar admits, “But quite honestly, a football player’s life is easy. With the team, the coach, the handlers, we can do this. It’s more difficult for my wife. She left everything behind to be with me. But we are happy, everything is fine.”
Without a doubt he does not regret the signature at the BVB, especially as the Borussia is”extremely familiar.” Fans, coaches, players and the whole team are like a family, that’s great. Marco Reus, Axel Witsel, Marius Wolf, Mario Gotze and Achraf Hakimi have even become “close acquaintances”.
