He did not say it explicitly, but Abelardo clearly targeted Trabanco in the run-up to the match against Leganés. The man from Gijón will be the solution to the casualties on the right side (Guille Rosas is suspended and Pol Valentín is injured) bringing to three the debutants in the League who have made the leap from the subsidiary this season. He started with Queipo and continued with Nacho Martín. Along the way, Diego Sánchez, Jordi Pola and David Argüelles have also participated, to a greater or lesser extent. These three, however, had already appeared the previous campaign, although with a testimonial presence. What is evident is that in the face of casualties, the team is rebuilt in Mareo. Only in the call, the rojiblanco coach has cited a total of seven footballers with fiial records.
The numbers did not add up to Abelardo, but the idea of betting on the quarry is clear. El Pitu added a fourth rookie this season when referring to the case of Trabanco, although the man from Gijón would really be the third. Always, referring to the league championship. It will not be his first competitive experience with the first team. He already lived his first official match in the Copa del Rey, two seasons ago, against Amorebieta. At 21 years old, and after a start to the campaign in the subsidiary in which he has even been used as a right half, the youth squad player has a new opportunity to show that he can earn a place in the first team.
Trabanco took his first steps in soccer at Colegio Inmaculada, from where he was signed by Sporting. He knows teammates like Queipo and Nacho Martín well, the last to gain the trust of an Abelardo who already took advantage of the last day of the League last season to offer alternatives to some who repeat this season. It was the case of Jordi Pola, who lived his first minutes of the League in the match against Unión Deportiva Las Palmas that shelved a bitter campaign, in which the team flirted dangerously with relegation. In the same game, Diego Sánchez, the player who has played the most for the subsidiary so far, appeared before the public, behind Queipo. Before, Martí had opted for David Argüelles as a relief for the left side, experiencing his first minutes, curiously, against Leganés. It was in Butarque.
On the bench there will be more players from the subsidiary waiting for the alternative. These are the cases of Aspra and Oyón, although the latter already knows what it is to have minutes in the League. David Gallego made him debut during last season’s match at El Molinón against Real Sociedad B.
