Jenni Hermoso: “The goal in the national team is a matter for the whole team”

A week has passed since he had to leave the concentration in the Spanish team due to a sprain of the internal ligament in his right knee that will deprive him of playing in the European blow that Lovely Jenny still difficult to assimilate. The Madrid striker participated in MARCA in the presentation of the new Samsung NEO Qled 8K.

Question. First of all, how is the damage?

Response. Well, every day better and with better feelings. I work with my personal trainer, with a recovery treatment and gym. I already cycle and do other exercises that make me feel better. I have much less pain than a week ago and I imagine that in three or four weeks I will hardly have any.

P. Do you think you would have arrived in time to play the European Championships?

R. I always thought I could get there, but there are things that are not in my hands and I can not do more. The medical staff thought I would not get well for the first match, but I would have tried to the end and would have done everything on my part to improve myself every day and be there.

Q. You said you did not want the European Championships to be a year and see …

R. It was karma! It makes me angry because it’s something I’ve been waiting for a long time. At club level I have won everything and I wanted to do it now with the national team.

Q. Have you cried a lot?

R. Yes, of course I cried. The first few days were awful. The phone was on fire and I was about to throw it in Manzanares. It’s something that hurts, but the days go by and you learn to enjoy other things like enjoying my Madrid. But I’m not going to lie to you, I still have moments of decline.

Q. Do you keep in touch or have you chosen aircraft mode?

R. Many people ask me daily how I feel. Maybe we do not talk as much as we could because it still hurts me, but I keep in touch.

P. A goal is lost in the national team, who will take that responsibility now?

R. The same thing always happens with the national team’s striker: if she does not score, things go very badly and if she scores, she is the best in the world. The goal of the national team is everyone’s concern. You should not put pressure on any player and it would be a mistake to put labels on forwards.

P. Do you think that with your absence there are less chances of success? How far can Spain go?

R. I think there are the same options. The players who are there are trained to play good games and go as far as possible.

Q. Your contract with Barcelona expires on June 30, what does the future hold for you?

R. It will soon be known. At the moment I want to recover completely and when it can be announced I will communicate it. I hope I have many years left if my body and head last.
