Sad, as if he had not yet assimilated the last kick, Quique Cárcel wanted to face. The speech, which could not be clearer, is very harsh but realistic: any air of greatness is over and it will be time to work hard if Girona wants to aspire to do important things in the future. “We have suffered a new traumatic psychological blow, perhaps because the reality of the new budget is very different from what we had. We have to forget about getting big things, from now on. We will look for the 50 points, ensure the permanence in Second and if nothing else has to come, it will come. We have stopped being the favorites, this has hurt us. History says that there are many teams that have been on the verge of going up after coming down from First, like us this year, they have finished in Second B “, said the white-and-red sports director, who acknowledged that a large number of important players have to pack Montilivi because their contracts cannot be maintained. “The budget will depend on sales and departures, now everything is in question. There are things that will not happen, such as League aid, or figures such as last year. Everything will be much more humble. This means that players with high contracts will not be able to continue, because we will not be able to face it. But they have a poster and we will surely find a solution “.
One of the first questions, obligatory, has been about the continuity of Cristhian Stuani. And perhaps it would have been better not to ask, because to the sadness of the defeat against Elche is added the depression that will cause to know that the Uruguayan has all the numbers to leave the entity. “He has a three-year contract, but it is difficult to retain a footballer with the figures he presents. The goal is sought, and he has proved to have it. Surely many clubs will want it and with the goal not achieved it is more difficult. I don’t rule it out one hundred percent, and I don’t doubt what it feels like for our colors, but it will most likely go away. All we have to do is congratulate him, thank him for everything he has done and find him a replacement that is as appropriate as possible, ”said Cárcel, who did not mention any other names but did so in a way that global. “If we talk to each of the footballers, they are delighted in Girona, because they feel that it is a project for the future. But the contracts mark the line to follow. I haven’t received any messages from anyone saying that they want to leave, but it’s clear that if they have better offers … The idea is to keep a certain blog, yes ”.
The Girona club will not compete on equal terms, because it has not known until this week in which category it will play and many of the options it had, they have not expected it. Jail, however, does not want to cry. “It simply came to our notice then. We are the last in everything: when we arrive at the market, when we choose players … We will have to know how to live together, creating passion and signing players with hunger who, led by Francisco, push the goal forward “. One of the first to arrive may be Àlex Corredera (Bajadoz), with whom there are advanced talks, and the right formula will also be sought for Manchester City to transfer youngsters to Montilivi, on the other hand, Francisco will continue on the bench, and is expected to be there for many seasons because “It’s a guarantee to know that he will be the driver, he’s a very prepared person. I think he can draw a project in which positive things happen, and I’m excited to have him.” lo ”.
Footballers below expectations
Quique Cárcel has acknowledged, without saying names, that many players have not lived up to it. “It simply came to our notice then. It’s true that we fought to the last second, never better said, but we’re not happy. The first to be disappointed with their performance are them. Everyone has wanted to do their best, but some have not had a lucky year. It has not been easy, because turning a leaf costs. Everyone was excited, we felt pressure, and we didn’t perform as well during the first three quarters. ” Girona, however, is still immersed in a winning era that the sporting director wants to value: “It is brutal to fight for such important things, but I am also aware that we have to win, and we have not. We have to keep believing and thinking that the best is yet to come, but we have missed a great opportunity. Football is for the winners, not the losers.
Enric Franquesa, first new face
Trust in Jail by the property remains intact. “I feel recognition for myself, and that’s the most important thing. The day after the defeat I already focused on the new challenge, I appreciate the confidence. I can’t ignore that they are many times in a row, but we need to regain hope. Trying it again now makes us a mountain, even though we’ve already experienced it, we already know what it’s all about. We will do it from common sense, with new expectations. Now I’m sad, like all the fans and the whole club, because there were a lot of excited people, and seeing them broken saddens me. We didn’t deserve it, honestly “, he said.
