Is football in Spain more competitive now? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/PJQbxAg9X8
In a recent interview with AS, Athletic Bilbao's veteran forward Aritz Aduriz said, "We are a little tired of seeing Barcelona and Real Madrid win everything. But it is nice to see competitions with more dynamism. You can see it in England, [where] it's enriching. It's a format that people like. I have been fantasising about [winning the cup] for a long time. At the beginning, it was a fantasy, and it may be closer now, although it is very difficult. Imagine retiring from football this season and winning a title. It's anyone's dream."
