Granada was the best decision for Jesus Vallejo in recent times
On Wednesday night, Jesus Vallejo returns to Valdebebas as his Granada side hosts defenders parent club, Real Madrid. He has also revealed why things haven’t entirely gone to plan since he left Real Zaragoza for the Spanish capital in the 2016 year. The 23-year-old has had many injuries so far in his early career, but his time in England on loan to Wolverhampton Wanderers stands out as a terrible memory. “I trained like the others, I took care of myself, and I was ready,” Vallejo told reporters. “But they didn’t give me much explanation as to why I didn’t get minutes. There was something behind it that I have no clue. I never knew and will never know, no matter how much I ask.”
“I prefer to concentrate on other things because that would be a waste of time. So I changed clubs to have a healthier environment. Coming to Granada was the best decision in recent times”. Some thought that Vallejo’s injury problems upon arrival at Real Madrid were reduced to stress, but he doesn’t think so. “I don’t think it had any impact, I didn’t have any stress,” he said. “I think I suffered more at Zaragoza because I was the captain and the young guy who went through the academy and I was 17 years old than later at Real Madrid or now at Granada. Jesus will remain on loan at Granada until June 30. At this point, the defender and Real Madrid will have to decide his future, especially with rumours about David Alaba arriving at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
