A list had to be drawn up with athletes, assistants, doctors, delegates … Whoever was not on the list could not attend. In football, we included those who we understood could be in the Games. So I covered my back, I did not want to have a wear. In June there should have been a smaller list, around 50. From there would come the 18 chosen.Were Ramos and Piqué going to be there?I don’t know (laughs). I always said that it is a pride that Sergio, Piqué, Iniesta, Villa … All this list of players who are in a position to go seems to me a pride as a Spaniard and as a soccer fan. Starting from there we will see what happens. I want to fill that quota of three majors because there are very good footballers and because there are nine players from the European Championship in Italy who are over that age and have the right to experience this event. Not everyone can be, but we will try to be fair to go to fight for a medal.How do you see the evolution of Ansu Fati?We did what had to be done. It aims very good conditions and for me it has exceptional potential. But you have to give it your time. You must take the steps of any person and footballer. He is very young, he was pressured a lot by the media. He has been having the participation he has had in his club, and as he participates in his club the more he will have more options to be in any of the selections. He is a player that interests us and could contribute a lot. In these circumstances, naturally, he is like another player. We would do him a disservice by speeding up the process. Let’s make it natural. Behind are very good footballers, the generation of 2000 comes from being champion of Europe U17 and U19. Younger still we have Pedri, who is doing an exceptional season in Second. Ferran … So they are players who have a long history in their clubs and in the National Team. We will try to choose those who can contribute the most at specific times, because in a week you are risking everything.Returning to Ramos. Both agreed in Sevilla, in the quarry. What was that Sergio Ramos like?He was an advance, in fact being a Cadet he already played in the Division of Honor. He was with us for a few months, because he quickly moved to Sevilla Atlético with Manolo Jiménez. And he quickly debuted in Primera with Caparrós. He was fortunate in the talent that God has given him. He played from the side, the center … We had these debates about where he could best develop his football potential. In those categories he played even as a midfielder, he had no problem. He was lucky to live in a club like Sevilla that bet so blindly on the quarry, and lucky to have coaches like Manolo Jiménez and Joaquín Caparrós who bet on quality rather than age. It was not difficult for them to give him the opportunity when he was very young. He was a footballer who was a leader, that’s what you have. Fast palpas that has the ability to lead a group and be a reference. We saw that he would have an exceptional career, as it has been season after season. And what’s left…How is the day to day of the Federation now?We must continue to watch matches and rivals, each within his responsibility. Of course we have the possibility of continuing to see the players in games in which they have competed, to get to know them better and thus have different variants. And of course the relationship between us, we have two or three weekly video calls where we put together the coordinators, technicians … We continue to maintain the activity because this does not stop. There is a lot of work. Luis de la Fuente, Olympic and U21 coach, attended the AStv program “La Futbolería” live to analyze the postponement of the Games until 2021. How are you doing in confinement?I think like all of us, with a lot of discipline and order. Obviously staying at home, which is what corresponds in this difficult and complicated situation. But at the same time I will say that I am doing extremely well on a personal level. The days are not long for me, I have a very established routine. I am very tidy, that helps me get through the days without making them long. I can stay much longer, although I want to leave soon.Do you see a lot of football these days?Yes. There is a lot of time. I have it well structured and there is time for everything, but much of my day is spent watching soccer. I analyze our matches, I make corrections and reinforcements that we call, I see the matches of the rivals that we will have in September, October and November. And then of course football in general and team training that I can see on the Internet. We must continue improving, training and acquiring knowledge. We are in that task.How have the players taken the postponements of the 2020 Games and the U21 European Championship in 2021?There is no other choice but to accept the situation. Unfortunately these measures are due to this pandemic and this drama so hard that we have to live. No one could think that it could happen to us. You have to accept the changes naturally and optimistically, you have to be positive. We were all very excited about the Games. When it was considered that the Games should be held on the established dates, I wanted it to happen because of what that circumstance meant, because it meant that we would have overcome this very difficult situation. It was not the fact of going to the Games, but it meant that we would have overcome this and the conditions were back to normal. Unfortunately, this could not have been the case. We must continue working, they will have one more year of preparation and that is good for everyone. You have to accept it professionally. Surely we will do very well.Does the decision that they are U-24s seem fair this time?It seems most fair and reasonable to me. It is a generation that has earned it. I also know, from the relationship I have with footballers, the illusion they have for being. It is only fair that this generation can be in 2021. I wish health to be able to choose among those good players that we have.His idea does not change then … Take the 97 and the first on the list for the three exceptions are the champions of 96 …We had a lot of work ahead of us, we had the last push … We have talked a lot about it. We were talking that you couldn’t think what was going to happen in June. Well, see how this has changed. Who would have imagined this? Not in the worst case scenario … Imagine a year and a half. The idea is to keep the group we had before the postponement happened. But in a year and a half so many things can happen … It is far away. I think about it, but more about the immediate commitments that if God wants we can play in September. We have the idea in the technical staff, although we will see what happens at this time.You already sent a prelist. Are they all signed up?
