Jurguens Montenegro spoke with Agustín Lleida about the option of going out on loan

San José, (elmundo.cr). – Jurguens Montenegro spoke with us this week at the High Performance Center in Turrúcares de Alajuela. The attacker sets himself the goal of being able to have minutes of play to be able to show himself to the coaching staff of the Senior National Team and seek the objective of receiving an opportunity.

The puntarenense was clear, he seeks to play in Alajuelense or in some other club on loan, here we share part of the interview.

In this next championship many players are looking for personal challenges for the tie, most are looking for a place in the senior team, how does Jurgens Montenegro take this next tournament? Do you think that the more minutes a player manages to have to show himself grows in the possibility of being called to the selection?

– Try to add as many minutes as possible, I know it is not easy but if I play regularly at the club I can have minutes at La Sele. I think that if the player is constant in the team and does things well, and in his position he does what he has to do, I think the call to the national team is easier and it all depends on how you want to face it.

My mentality has always been to go to a World Cup, but you always have to work with your feet on the ground and go step by step, not trusting yourself and realizing the opportunities you have.

«I feel difficult, but not impossible. I talked about wanting to get out of loan or with one of the options that they had, but I have put everything in the hands of God, now I only have to look for more minutes and look for an opportunity so that they take me into account, but everything is regularly and if I don’t have the minutes or I don’t earn them, they won’t call me to the national team ».

– There was something curious the previous tournament, he played some games but when the important games arrived he was not a starter, how do you take it?

I always handle it in the same way, even if I don’t always support the team, I give my best effort where it touches me, whether it is on the bench, in the bleachers or at home. Personally, I always try to do things well, I feel that in several games I did things well and sometimes it was not my turn, but it is part of football and I had to face that with great maturity. But here I am fighting and taking every opportunity they give me.

– From the outside, how do you see the attacking sector in the National Team? Do you think it is an area where there is a lot of competition?

– Right now those who are here, they have earned it for something, the teacher called them and I hope they do well. There are many who did not call and I know they can take the opportunity and try to do things well, such as Manfred Ugalde and Jostin Daily, I think that as young people they have the same illusion as one, to try to reach the national team and take advantage , sweating the shirt but everything is step by step, and those who are right now also try to do the same, and if things do not work out at least they tried, but there are still more players, for example there is Moya and Ureña who in the Past playoffs were very important for the national team and I think they are doing a good job right now.

Professor Suárez has said in press conferences that he wants to get involved in the training of the teams, however, he is at a setback because everything is very close to the tie, but he says that he wants to take advantage of his stay in the country, And not only focus on the games, but have a relationship with the coach of each team and their players, in what way do you visualize this?

– As a player I feel that there is too much interest on the part of the teacher in seeing the players, that is good and for the player as well because he will feel good and will feel motivated and I think that this consideration on the part of Suárez will help the team a lot.

– Have there been approaches of teams that want to see how this circumstance of Jurgens Montenegro?

– That is handled by my representative, there have been rumors, but if there is an offer that is the best, I prepare and train, to be able to do things well and be able to get ahead with a good rhythm. When there is something concrete, many times things do not work out, however, we have been close, I have to continue doing things well and hopefully it will be achieved so that I can go to another country.

– How does Jurgens see himself today, after that moment of setting foot in Liga Deportiva Alajuelense for the first time? Why was it difficult for you?

– I always try to maintain that attitude and commitment from the first day I arrived here, I had a dream to fulfill and I had to train hard, make an effort to fulfill it, thank God, little by little, I have been fulfilling it, it was difficult but Life is not easy, there are always obstacles, but it all depends on you as far as you want to make excuses.

For me it was complicated, many times in the economic part my mother did not have to help me with the tickets, but I never made excuses. Sometimes a friend would come and help me and I would come to the League. When I started with the League it was also difficult, they did not help me much because it is always like that with the newest ones, I always walked from Villa Bonita to the stadium, it lasted about an hour and that was what motivated me the most to fulfill my dreams and thank you I made my debut to God in 2017, and I spent three months in U-17, then Wilmer López got on me.

– When you speak of Villa Bonita de Alajuela, was it because there was someone you were staying with?

– Yes, I was staying with Greivin Fonseca, for which I thank him for opening the doors of his home to me, since then I knew he was going to make it difficult for me, but I knew that if things are difficult they are enjoyed more and since then I decided to goal of being in the first division and since then I have fulfilled my goals and objectives.

«I owe everything to Mauricio Montero who came and supported me from the beginning, he always advised me and motivated me. I remember that one day we were training on the new synthetic court, and he told me: Jurgens goes with the first one, and I didn’t believe it, I thought it was a joke because sometimes I was hesitant about the color of my hair. That day I realized that I was summoned to the Liberia party and from there I am grateful to him, Wilmer and Hernán Torres ».

Have you and Alonso Martínez been two players who reflect that it depends on the player if the loan start ends well or badly? Because if the loan is profitable you can return to the club, how do you see it?

-In the beginning I made the decision, I spoke with part of the coaching staff, and later Cartaginés arrived and gave me the opportunity, I spoke with Carevic about my minutes at the end I made a decision with my mother and with Juan Vicente (his representative), in the end I took advantage of the opportunity that Carthage gave me. At that time they wanted to leave me here in the High Performance but I wanted more experience in the First Division. We did well in Cartago with Martín Arriola and Hernán Medford. Then I went to Jicaral and that opportunity was very nice and I took advantage of it in the best way, I tried to enjoy it and, since I am from a similar town, then it was not so bad.

– Have you put the issue of minutes on the table with Carevic or Agustín?

– I spoke with Agustín about certain issues, and that I did not feel comfortable, I asked him if there was an offer to go on loan that he would let me, but let’s wait to see if it is maintained and they let me out because I know that if I have the regularity, the minutes and I do things well, I could be in the national team. My goal is to be champion with the League, then if I am given the opportunity to go to the qualifying rounds and to the World Cup if the team qualifies.
