I feel just as important within the group”, Ditch.

But his press appearance this Thursday was aimed at that second importance. The one to measure Osasuna. TO Jagoba Arrasate, who directed him for two years. “He has made his team play with very clear ideas and, with the exception of these months of complicated results, he has achieved a lot and has plenty of weapons ”, he warns.
