SITO Castro today revealed how miserable his mornings used to be.

And the 27-year-old Ipswich Town full-back does not want to go down that road again.

After being out in the wilderness for many months, the Spaniard has become a regular in the Blues back line over the last few weeks.

From looking a certainty to leave Portman Road when his contract ends in the summer - and perhaps leave on a full transfer during the transfer window - Sito is now looking to do enough in the remaining weeks of the season to earn a new Ipswich contract.

“Waking up in the morning used to be a miserable experience,” said Sito.

“I knew I would be going into work, but just to train with the youngsters.

“The first team would be in one area of the training ground, and I would be in another.

“It is something I don't want to go through again. I don't want that feeling any more.”

To his credit Sito kept his head down and continued to work hard - and he has got his rewards.

Always a firm favourite with Ipswich fans, Sito stressed his wish to stay in English football next season.

He hopes it will be with Ipswich Town and, if manager Jim Magilton does offer him a new contract, it will be a remarkable turnaround.

“In football you always have a chance,” continued Sito.

“I love it in England with the extra passion and, if given a football wish, it would be to still be at Portman Road in 12 months time. Over the next four months or so I will be doing all I can to achieve this.

“If I can stay in the team that will be a plus for me, but in football you never know what is around the corner.”

Sito confirmed that he has not begun talks with Ipswich over a new contract yet, and that he has had no contact - through his agent - with any other clubs, English or otherwise.

“Our back four is working well, and we are not conceding many goals,” said Sito, who rooms with fellow Spaniard Pablo Counago on away trips.

“But there is room for improvement as we look to put right our poor away record.”
