Just a week ago, the current coach of Sala5 Martorell, Víctor González, announced on his social networks that he was closing the stage of six years in a row leading the senior men of the red entity. The technician admits that he feels that the time has come for a change of scenery after a very intense stage on board the ship from Martorell. For now, he will continue in the King’s League until July and does not close the door to other new projects.
González puts an end to six seasons in which there have been two promotions and the recent stay in Segona, which will keep Martorell in the second competitive step of futsal at state level for one more season.
This Saturday, González will see the season farewell in the last game of the Sala5 season, which will be in Castelló de la Plana, at the Bisontes Castellón track (6:00 p.m.). A victory could be the best way to send him off after a stage that he himself values as very intense and full of emotions.
Víctor, what were the reasons that led you to make this decision to leave the Sala5 bench? Has it been mulled over over the course of the season or has it just happened in the last few weeks?
It has been a decision for the whole season. A few months ago I was already clear that both for me and for the club a change of scenery was good. In all this time I have tried to make the effort to focus on the present moment, on what was at hand, but it is true that there are situations that must make you vibrate at the level of passion in order to work more deeply. And since the beginning of this season I’ve been missing that passion and energy and I’ve noticed more and more emptiness, when the place requires a lot of intensity and being at one hundred percent.
What will this mean for you and the club?
I think the club will do well and in my case it will be a finished stage after six seasons where I have emptied myself a lot, I have consumed myself and it is also good to change and close cycles. In the end I am a person that when I have an ambitious goal for myself I become very obsessive and work very hard, but when the illusion is diluted it becomes more and more difficult for me, and this is what has been happening to me. You need to be sensible with yourself, not cling to chairs and be clear. This is what has happened to me also on an emotional and passion level.
You are ending a six-year period in which two promotions have been achieved, great performances in cup competitions, confrontations against rivals from the Division of Honor… How do you look at it, all the way with the red club?
Seeing the trajectory in perspective, I think it is very good. To get this far, you have to put in every workout to make the house go well. If we look in perspective, in the Cup we have not been eliminated by anyone who is below our category and we have always been eliminated by teams from the same league or above and performing well. For the second year in a row, we will play the Copa Catalunya in a four-way final in which two professional teams, Barça and Industrias de Santa Coloma, will compete.
Has the permanence been the icing on the cake?
Salvation in Segona reinforces the project and I am very happy about it. We took the team to Tercera after being relegated. There were only three players left and I had to do tests to choose well. It has been a very beautiful and very competitive process and we have been exceeding our goals.
These last few days, some of your followers on the networks were thanking you “for bringing back the illusion of futsal in Martorell”. What do you think?
As you move up the categories, the funnel gets narrower and narrower, and Sala5 Martorell is now a benchmark for the population and also for Catalan futsal. I’m very happy and I’m very happy for the people, because I understand more years ago it must have been a very hard stick to leave the elite after 10 years. In the end, Martorell is a town that breathes futsal, and I am very glad to have it close again in these categories.
Of these six years, which moment would you stay with?
Due to the euphoria of the moment, a draw with 3 seconds left against Les Corts in a game on the penultimate day of the league that allowed us to depend on ourselves in the last, obtaining a draw in Santpedor. At that time, that was almost the achievement of promotion from Third to Second B, and it was really a title, a promotion. And also the cluster of things that happened to us in the last play-off of Segona B. The 5 games were an odyssey, but we won the qualifiers with a big advantage over the rivals. It’s very difficult to get to this point, to have won with these thrashings and playing very well. In fact, playing the best game of the whole year, no nerves, which says a lot about what we achieved.
Do you think that training more days a week will be one of the aspects that the team will have to face in order to take a step further in Segona?
In order to stabilize in Segona what is needed is to have more professional weeks. It may be by doing one more day of training, which they will have to regulate more at the level of load between players, since they work, and above all that they accept the challenge and are mentally with mental priority in Martorell. It is necessary to look for quality in the sessions that take place, even though it will be inevitable to face teams that will do double the sessions. You have to face it towards professionalism, which cannot be given in one season, but you have to keep improving there, because it will eventually be noticed, it will mean more points and allow you to grow.
Do you already know what you’re going to do next year?
Yes, I am now in the King’s League project, where I am having a great time. It’s a slightly different approach: there are a lot of uncertainties in almost everything and you can’t have everything as much under control as in a play off. It’s a breath of fresh air for me and I’m having a good time. The atmosphere is getting more professional, we are training more, the players are getting better and they are getting more involved. Now I will continue with them until July and I am open, but depending on which project. And if I was only at King’s for a while, I wouldn’t mind either.
This Saturday will be your Sala5 farewell. How do you deal with it?
Looking forward to winning in Castelló because these three points would make up the classification a bit and leave us with a good taste in our mouths. I have good vibes for tomorrow.
Do you see yourself returning to Martorell one day?
I hope to follow in one way or another at some other stage. In any case, may the stones that have been placed be higher and higher and that you enjoy it!
