Another remarkable performance was on the way for Luisma when Bengaluru had to play against FC Goa on 17th March.
The mid-fielder was introduced following 70 minutes of a goalless game and the team was successful in winning the game by 1-0 when the extra time was just going to finish. It came as the second honor for this Spanish player without making a goal or without offering any assistance in the game.
A year down the line and Luisma looks to return to Spain, at this point with no signal of being signed. He has hinted to the press that he is considering joining the police force.
In a recent interview with Betway Online, he spoke about his time in India.
How did the ISL compare with playing in England?
“It’s a little different. The fifth division [in England] was much harder, with lots of physical contact, lots of force, long balls, 4-4-2.
“The Super League, on the other hand, is a little slower, with more control of the ball and players with great individual technique. They are very different leagues.”
Do you think more players should go abroad for opportunities?
“Definitely. Lots of Spaniards end up in India or other countries.
“We have very good players in Spain, and more and better players are leaving.
“I really enjoyed having played abroad and it is something that every footballer should try and least once in their life.”
What was the final like?
“For me it was just one more game.
“I started on the bench and came on in the second half, with the score at 0-0, thinking how I could do my best to help the team.
“I am used to controlling my emotions quite well. I only think about having fun, trying to do things well, enjoy the moment. I don’t tend to get nervous because I don’t think about it. I’ve spent plenty of years practising this sport.”
