Ebert ‘happy’ at Valladolid

Patrick Ebert has played down both his own value to Real Valladolid and the rumours linking him with a future move away.

The 25-year-old German has caught the eye with his performances since arriving in La Liga last summer and is heavily linked with a move in the future, with Atletico Madrid paired with him this week.

“My mind is focused in Valladolid and I do not know what my agent is intending for me,” commented the attacking midfielder at a Press conference this week.

“I do not have the speculation in mind, the summer is far away. I am just thinking of now and of Real Valladolid.

“I’m very happy here, I’m happy to play in this stadium in the Primera Division. We’ll see what happens in the summer.

“Could I get into the German national team too? I am not thinking of that, I give my best in every game, if I am called up to the squad or not. For me it is not important. If you work to your best, the rest will follow.”

Ebert looked to play down his worth further.

“Valladolid have also lost me on the pitch. I played against Real Madrid, not entirely, but I was in the field and you can say that we lost in part thanks to me.

“Against Mallorca I did not play well and we were lucky to win and against Celta and Deportivo I played badly and we lost.”
