I’m a family man who enjoys being at home and I love living in Manchester, you sort of get hooked by it. It’s a very beautiful city and I’m very happy here.” Otamendi stated

You always want to break your own records. When I was playing at Valencia I scored six goals, and my aim is to reach that amount of goals again, but my main aim is to defend and then if I score goals they are also welcome. The most important thing, as an individual and a member of a group too, is to help the team as best as I can, giving all I have.” Otamendi added
