Eunate Arraiza: “Deafness forces me to try three times”

first_imgThe agreement is very positive, to be able to secure a contract. Despite the fact that in Athletic we have a very good situation, the footballers also study and train in other areas. We know that we cannot live from soccer like the boys. And our priority, apart from soccer, are studies because we don’t know what tomorrow will bring us.What are you studying now?I am studying sign language, I am taking the levels of Sign Language.It is an example for many after reaching the elite with deafness, how was that fight?It is true that deafness forces me to work with triple the effort of others in any field, including soccer. I always have to try much harder.How was your deafness diagnosed?My parents realized that I was not listening well when I was two or three years old. They took me to doctors and they started treating me deafness. At the age of eight, I had surgery on my left ear and an implant. The device I have is called a Cochlear Implant and with it I play soccer. It doesn’t bother me at all and I wear it normally.What advice would you give someone with such a problem?May I never throw in the towel. I have overcome many obstacles on my way. We must not stop fighting for dreams. With work, sacrifice and effort, everything is possible. My case is an example of this. I always dreamed of being a footballer and I have succeeded. Deafness has taught me many things in life. One of those things is that you have to work hard.How do you remember women’s football when you were little?Women’s football did not exist in the media when I was little. No players were seen on television. I never imagined we would come to this. I had no references because the players of that time did not appear anywhere. Now we are a reference for girls and boys and, therefore, we must work to give more visibility to women’s football.Who are your references now?In men’s soccer, my reference is Messi (Barça) and, in women’s soccer, Irene Paredes (PSG).How do you see your future?I have two more years of contract in Athletic. We will see what will happen then. As I am mentally and physically, I will decide what to do. Eunate Roots has shown that there are no barriers in life to get a dream. Navarra, which suffers from severe deafness, is an example of improvement in football. Based on work and sacrifice, the Biurrun footballer has managed to become a place in the soccer elite female. With a League in his record, Eunate has competed at the highest level, including Champions, with Athletic, at the same time that it has been international with Spain or has been recognized by UEFA for its sacrifice.Behind is a young woman from Navarra who started kicking a ball when she was seven and that he took his first steps as a footballer at Lagunak, where he debuted in Primera at the age of 14 and from which He made the leap at 21 to Athletic. In the midst of this quarantine, the footballer attends AS to talk about her career and how she feels at be an example in sport and in life itself.How are you doing the quarantine?Well. I am with my family in Biurrun and I try to evade myself a bit so that it does not get hard.Is it difficult to train at a high level from home?At first it seemed very strange to me. Now I get along very well. We train very hard every day, we even do a double session some days, as if we were going to return the next day.Would you like to end the season?There are so many rumors that you don’t even know what to think. I believe that the first thing is health. Many people are dying and the situation is serious. Soccer is secondary.Psychologically, how is it affecting the team?This situation has come at a time when the team was in very good dynamics. It’s a shame because we had just qualified for the Cup semi-finals and we had very good feelings.What does it mean to wear the Athletic shirt?When I signed for Athletic I knew I had to take this opportunity and I am delighted with the result. In Athletic I have achieved many dreams that I had as a little girl.How do you assess the arrival of the agreement?last_img read more
