I think I’m ready to play here: Javi Siverio

Javi Siverio speaks about his short, long term targets and more

In the hope of adding more firepower to the frontline, Hyderabad FC turned to Javier Siverio in August. The young 6-foot forward has spent his entire playing career in Spain before taking the bold decision to move to another country. In his brief career, the 24-year-old has demonstrated enormous potential wherever he has played. At 19, Siverio was a part of the Las Palmas B side that trained under current HFC head coach Manolo Marquez in the 2016-17 season. After spending a couple of seasons with Las Palmas B, Siverio joined Racing Santander in 2018. In the 2018-19 season, the striker turned up for Racing Santander II.

Currently, sitting at the top after playing fourteen matches till now, HFC will hope to finish in the playoffs spots. Speaking to Sportslumo, Javi Siverio opened up about his short, long term target and why ISL will benefit from having a longer format.

Q. Do you think ISL should be held throughout the year like European leagues or are you happy with the current format?

I think that it is too short. For me, there could be a minimum of 30 matches. I think that for Indian football is better to have more matches and a longer competition.
