Samuel Sáiz moved to Leeds United from Huesca in 2017.
The attacking midfielder managed five goals and seven assists in 34 league appearances in his debut season in the Championship. However, he struggled to find the back of the net in the first half of the 2018/19 season and lost his place in the squad in December 2018.
Leeds then allowed the 29-year-old to join Getafe on a short term loan deal in January 2019 and later that summer, the Spaniard joined join Girona on a permanent transfer.
Sáiz interacted with the fans on Instagram this week, and he spoke on various subjects, including how his move to the Segunda División side materialised last summer.
“Three months before the end of the season, Girona was in the first division. They already wanted to sign me. Then the opportunity came again and I took it. They gave me a lot of facilities; they paid a transfer fee to Leeds and I was delighted. I am well here,” AS quoted him as saying.
Sáiz’s decision to leave Marcelo Bielsa’s side for Girona hasn’t paid off as he has managed only one goal and two assists in 21 league appearances this season. The former Leeds man was ‘self-critical’ about his own performances for Girona.
“I’m not living the dream season. I’m not doing well, but the club is wonderful. People are very nice, friendly. I am very comfortable here,” Sáiz stressed.
