Galan’s career started very promising, he grew up in the Atletico Madrid academy and then moved to Almeria, where he was captain of the team, but after a serious knee injury, his career collapsed.
“If I could put myself up front, it would have changed everything. I was in the club for four years, I was a captain, and no one understood why the president took me to the streets after the cross was torn.” He said.
This failure made him try his luck abroad. He emphasized that the experiences he had gained over the past ten years had been invaluable to money, and that he could do what he loved most.
