An Argentine will be the plan B to the non-arrival of the Portuguese
Coach Diego Martinez count the hours to debut with him RCD Espanyol, but first you need to consolidate your workforce 100%. For example, in defense I needed a piece to cover the exit of Didac Vila but also one more reinforcement to accompany the trio behind made up of Cabrera, Gómez and Calero.
That name was that of the Portuguese Sunday Duartea defender that Diego Martínez knows very well during his time as coach of the Granada C.F.. The Portuguese finally left the Nazarí club but not heading to parakeet painting but to Getafe CF. In this way the operation with this player fell through but the probability of signing a Facundo Garces.
Who is Facundo Garcés, the defender that Diego Martínez has requested for Espanyol?
Of Argentine nationality, only 22 years old and playing for Colón de Santa Fe, Facundo Garcés becomes Martínez’s plan B in the face of Duarte’s non-arrival. Although the characteristics of both are different, the Galician coach has chosen him because he can occupy two positions at the back, which by coincidence are the demarcations that the Catalan team needs the most attention.
Thus, Garcés can be used to form the central pair or to occupy the left back, something like the role that Alaba plays at Real Madrid. Among his qualities, his aerial game stands out both to clear and to score on corner kicks. His 1.89 cm height and 82 kilos weight also allow him to fight balls with strength and hierarchy.
Diego Martínez hurries the sports management of Espanyol with the signing of Garcés
Various information from LaLiga Santander and the Turkish league have landed in the offices of the Perico team, indicating that there are more than 3 teams interested in the Argentine defender. Two of them are Betis and Granada, the latter precisely looking to take over from Domingos Duarte.
Galatasaray and current champion Trabzonspor have appeared from the Turkish Super League. In this way, the blue and white team has 4 rivals to defeat, although the Betic club is truly the opponent to defeat. If the option of going to Europe is open, Facundo Garcés has LaLiga Santander as a priority and Espanyol is ready for anything.
