Alex Blanco is the new face of the Valencia club’s first team this season. Although the number 37 jersey assigned to him still looks like an idol trainee, he is indeed in the past two La Liga games. Played for Valencia.
Blanco also has a well-known identity, that is, the son of Tito Blanco, director of sports at Levante. Affected by his father's work, most of his childhood time was spent watching football on the stadium, playing outside, and watching live football on TV at home. Jiangmen Huzi, talented, was selected as the National Youth, he has all the conditions to become the "Prince Levante". But he became a fan of Valencia since he was a child.
Appreciating the skills of Villa, Mata and his idol Silva in front of the TV made Branco fall in love with Valencia. "When I was a kid, I was waiting by the parking lot of the training ground, approaching the stands closest to the player aisle, watching those talented players walk by, and I dreamt that I could one day be one of them. Children, always The team that picks more stars and wins more goals to like." Little Blanco said confidently.
When he learned that he had the opportunity to join the Valencia Junior Team, he felt the happiness that his dreams reflected in reality. In the fourth round of the league against Real Sociedad, his Valencia first team debut directly faced his idol David Silva. In the game, he was a little immature and almost made a big mistake in defending Januzhai. The referee's missed penalty for Valencia and Blanco escaped. "I really don't want to admit it, this is a mistake made by being too young."
Of course, the 22-year-old Blanco is still young enough, “It’s not easy for someone to work hard to reach this level when it comes to the top leagues of professional football. Turf, when playing with my friends on the court, this is still an unattainable dream. As I continue to grow, my goal has gradually become clear, and that is to become a Valencia player."
In the past few seasons, Blanco has experienced foreign rent. But like every social animal who is eager to work close to home, Blanco's wish is to stay in Valencia and play for many years. "Isn't it good to play with my hometown team every day and enjoy the sunshine of Valencia?" Blanco's goal is very clear. Now what he needs to do is to establish a firm foothold in the Valencia first team. And to do this, hard training, humble attitude, unremitting enterprising spirit and crazy ball ups in this good time are what he will try to do next.
