JOSE AJA: 10 things you don’t know about me

1. My biggest fear is …

"To get injured, to not be able to play. Being injured more than anything. I always want to be 100%.”

2. If I could live anywhere, it would be …

“I like it here, in America. The life here is so nice. And I like Europe, in Spain. Spain, I like as well.” 

3. I’m motivated to work hard because …

“My family, every day. I have my grandmother in heaven, so I play for her and my family.”

4. I’m proud of myself because … 

“To be here, stay here, play in America. I like to stay here very much. To play soccer is my favorite thing to do.” 

5. My go-to music I listen to while I’m driving is … 

“I like different kinds of music, could be reggaeton, salsa. I think it would be those two.”

6. I could never go a day without …

“My bed. I love sleep, the nap. I always have to take my nap every day.”

7. My favorite family tradition is …  

“Eat barbecue. Sundays we eat pasta. In my country in Uruguay, we eat Sunday pasta and Saturdays the barbecue, so those traditions.”

8. My daily ritual is … 

“I wake up in the morning, I prepare my mate — a drink. A Uruguayan tradition so every morning I drink mate. I come here to the training, listen to music, chat with my teammates and then we train or we sing.”

9. My favorite meal is …

“Italian food, so pasta, chicken parmesan. Barbecue as well, I like the meat so much.”

10. Something I always have with me when I travel … 

“My phone so I have my music. Netflix so I can see a TV series. I like those things.”
