What They're Saying: Jagoba Arrasate

"My eldest daughter is nine, the other two are five and one. So she understands on her level. She looks at the league table and because she's so happy in Pamplona, with all the friends she has, she thinks: if we're not in the bottom three, we're staying here, so I'm happy. That's how she relates to what the team is doing. I don't say anything to her about how the team is, but she's aware of that. All she's concerned about is not being in the 'red zone.'"
