«After winning the European Under-21 Championship, Sporting spoke to my agent and showed a lot of interest. It made me feel more important than at Sevilla, so I thought I was the right time to leave the house. It cost me a little, but I think it was the right option. I lived very beautiful things in Portugal. It was the best stage of my career. It is true that I reached the semi-finals of the Europa League and won a Portuguese Cup [2014/15], but those nights when you play a big game and hear Alvalade singing your name mark you. And the greatest recognition is to feel that even today I am cherished by the fans and the club ”, he explained in the Idols, Youtube channel.
Finally, Capel highlighted the coaches he met at Sporting.
«With Leonardo Jardim I had a very good season. Then I also have to highlight Jesualdo Ferreira and Domingos Paciência. They helped me a lot and managed to put me playing at a great level in Portugal. Basically, they knew how to get the best out of me », he concluded.
