Vitorino Antunes is optimistic of his chances of continuing on at Malaga into next season: “I’d love to stay here at Malaga.”
The 26-year-old was signed in the January transfer window as a late replacement for Nacho Monreal, but sees his loan from Pacos Ferreira expiring in June.
“I’d love to stay here at Malaga, I’ll wait until the end of the season but I’m very optimistic,” commented Antunes to reporters this week.
“MAlaga are a fantastic outfit who have given me a great opportunity. The fans are incredible, I love the city…what more could I ask for?
“I've still got much more to give. I'm getting more confident with every match, and with my teammates and the Coach.
“I've got more experience now and I believe I've still got a lot more to offer the team.”
Malaga look on course for Europa League qualification this season, pending the outcome of their appeal against a European ban imposed by UEFA.
“The competition isn't over yet, there are still two matches left and we're determined to qualify for the Europa League and finish in fifth place in the table.
“We'll give it our all in order to achieve our objectives.”
