Real Mallorca defender Pedro Geromel feels it is more important to win at Osasuna on Sunday than whether he plays in the game.
The Brazilian, 26, was signed from Cologne during the summer but is yet to make his full debut for Joaquin Caparros’ men after their fine start to the season.
Los Bermellones currently sit second in La Liga following two wins and a draw in the opening three games, yet Geromel insists three points are what matters rather than any personal glory.
“Every player wants to play, that’s normal, but there are a lot of us and only 11 can be on the pitch at any one time,” he told a Press conference.
“Mallorca are doing well and for me that is more important. I’m here to play and help the team, but the most important thing is that we keep on winning and taking points.”
Geromel has seen his way into the side blocked by the superb form of Pedro Bigas and countryman Anderson Conceicao, yet feels that hard work is the way he can turn the situation around.
“I’m going to do everything possible to get into the team. I’m working hard every day to improve and I’ll give everything for the club.
“Adapting here has gone very well. The players have helped me a lot and made it easier for me,” he said.
