MOTIVATION
He admitted in 2013 that the motivation behind his move to Qatar was financial security. "I am sensitive to seeing my best friends, who play in Spain, have financial difficulties.

COACH'S CALL
Spanish coach Valero Rivera helped persuade him to make the move to play for Qatar. "He [Valero Rivera] was a key figure in my career. If it was someone else, I would have had to think more carefully about it." (handball-planet.com, 29 Oct 2013)
