David's support system

Jose was considered David's best coach because he always expected the best from David

He used to be not only at every game at Atletico, but he was also at every single training session.  

Marivi has always a support system for her husband and son.  As Marivi remained homemaker and took good care of her family. 

Jose and his wife's support have helped David to build his career. Though David is very talented and skilled, his parents are equally responsible for his success. 

David once said his mum would call up, two, three, four times a week. She always said she was very worried about him. 

She used to be worried about balance between his studies and sports. His parents would drive 50 km a day just to look at him at Atletico's training ground in the plush area of Alarcon.

Born with a silver spoon

As David was born into a wealthy family, his parents not only raised him very comfortably, but they also pampered him in every possible way and fulfilled his every need. 

They also sent him to one of the best Spanish youth academics. David's love for sports started in his childhood. 

David's mom is a firm believer in an 'equal balance between education and sports.' That's why his parents wanted him to have a healthy balance between his studies and sports activities.

How David's career started?

In the beginning, he started at La Escuela De Futbol Atletico Casarrubuelos which was affiliated to Atletico Madrid

Cruz, David's coach, revealed some exciting news that many David's lovers would find hard to believe. He said that years into his career, David was a perfect outfield player until the age of 14 before he became a goalkeeper.

David was never into goalkeeping from the beginning. Instead, it developed later. 

When David was a kid, he also played for his school team. He could play for all the positions defense, midfield, and attack role as required. 

However, until David was 14, he played as an outfield player until the age that defined a turning point in his career.   

David was 6 feet and 4 inches tall, which restricted his speed as a footballer. That's why David decided to start a career as a goalkeeper for life. 

David's big height was not always a problem; it also helped David when he participated in the basketball tournament.
