Villarreal presents midfielder Fernandez to fans

Villarreal presented Chile midfielder Matias Fernandez to 3,500 fans Thursday. The 20-year-old officially joins the first division side on Monday.
"I didn't expect this welcome. It's very nice that all these people have come to greet me; that's one more reason to play well in my new team," Fernandez said at the club's El Madrigal stadium in eastern Spain.
"I am aware that the Spanish league is very difficult and, although I have seen many matches on TV, it's not the same as playing," Fernandez said.
Villarreal president Fernando Roig said Fernandez would improve the club, which is 11th in the 20-team division with 22 points from 16 games.
"We are very happy that he has come because he is good player who can make a difference," Roig said.
Villarreal reached the Champions League semifinals last season, losing 1-0 on aggregate to Arsenal.
