I’m very proud to compete for the national team and to fight to achieve success at international level. “But due to the injury and the subsequent surgery, I’m not going to be able to go to the World Cup in China. I will nevertheless be supporting the team and hoping they have a great tournament. I’ve always been close to them for many reasons, we are a family. It’s not a slogan, it’s a reality of our team. I hope we can qualify for the Olympic Games and that I can be back next year.”

Those of us who love Pau support him and we know that he has made the best decision. I can only wish you that his recovery is perfect. Pau not only wanted to be good but to compete.
