Morientes jokingly mention that Lainez would fit perfectly at Real Madrid "If he scores 50 goals," adding that the Mexicans that have landed in the Spanish league always leave great sensations.

The Spanish legend also adviced Lainez to seek for regularity to stand out in Spain, taking as example Hugo Sánchez who shine with the 'merengues' in the 80s.

Morientes concluded that due to his regularity, Sánchez scored every year, something that each player in that position should do to become strong in the league, not just Lainez but any foreigner and Spanish player too.
