Fabian Ruiz back with La Roja. Absent for almost two years, the 27-year-old midfielder returned to the selection at the start of the year.
Present from the March rally, the left-hander has since participated in four of Spain's five matches, always being on the scoresheet. “I am happy and happy to be back and for that I thanked the leader for his trust, for which I work to continue representing the country, which is a pleasure for me” explains Fabian Ruiz at a press conference in comments reported by Mundo Deportivo, very grateful to Luis de la Fuente.
Back in March, the Paris Saint-Germain player had not worn the red jersey since the last Euro in June 2021. He then played around 70 minutes in the five Spanish matches. Since then, the former Naples player was visibly excluded from the selection, for no apparent reason.
“I don’t know why he didn’t call me,” explains Fabian Ruiz about Luis Enrique, 2018 coach at the last World Cup. "It's a country where we have good footballers and I'm working to get the opportunity, but it didn't happen and now, with the new coach, I've come back and I'm very happy," he said. -he declared, emphasizing that he liked “having the freedom to enter the box to shoot or pass, but also to go down to receive.”
Also asked about the resignation of the president of the Federation Luis Rubiales, Fabian Ruiz preferred to kick into touch. “In concentration we are not very aware of what is happening outside, it is true that we discover it. We respect the decision and in last Monday’s statement we said everything we thought.”
