Now he is finally making his debut in La Liga, the dream to which every Spanish footballer aspires. It is true that he did not play the entire match, as he entered in the 78th minute replacing Pablo Martínez, but he was finally able to enjoy the acclaimed competition. "Yesterday was a very special day for me. Debut at home and in front of my fans. Thanks to my teammates for helping me and to all who have made it possible," he posted on his social media profiles.

However, in this last year he will have to prove his worth to gain time on the pitch and fight for the confidence of his coach.
