Lago: I’ll always be Celta

Getafe defender Roberto Lago faces his former club Celta Vigo this week, and the 28-year-old has admitted it will be a great occasion.

The left-back spent six years with the Celestes but moved to the Azulones this summer, and he has admitted that he is still a Celta fan at heart, but won’t want them to win on Thursday.

“I always want Celta to win,” he told a Press conference. “Except in two days’ time when we’re trying to beat them!

“Celta are a bit different from last year, but it seems they have made some good signings.

“I grew up there and spent nearly my whole life at the club, so of course I am still a fan.

“If someone asks me which team I am, I don’t say Barca or Madrid, I say Celta.

“But I am happy with the decision I made in the summer.”
