Garcia would love Spain return

Espanyol’s Sergio Garcia has reflected that he is in his best form ever for Los Pericos and that he would love another shot at the national team.

The 29-year-old, who was a member of Spain’s victorious Euro 2008 squad, has managed four goals and two assists in his last eight matches for a rejuvenated Espanyol.

“I’m at my best since I joined Espanyol,” a confident Garcia told reporters today.

“And I feel very comfortable, with the support of the Coach and the fans. And so it makes sense that things are going well on the field.

“I would love to return to the Spain squad, but at the moment there are players who are at a good level and I know that it is hard.

“My priority is to do well with Espanyol. Mathematically we wouldn’t be safe with a win at the weekend against Osasuna, but it is an important game and a win would be a definitive step forward in staying in La Primera.

“The team is looking forward a little more freely too. We would like to achieve our first goal of survival, so that the League can be played out more relaxingly.

“If we achieve this goal we will not settle there, there will be more exciting things to fight for.”
