At the end of Oviedo’s training session, with Cervera bellowing and asking his players for intensity, one detail: the winger Sequeira fading under pressure, stealing balls and facing his defender. The moment defines the situation of the player, who by decision of Cervera will be the first signing of Oviedo in this winter market. The 27-year-old Argentine player, who belongs to Pachuca after playing for Querétaro, has taken advantage of the Christmas break to get fit physically.
The difficult thing, convincing Cervera, was achieved despite not being fully. They say in the club that the Oviedo coach values his capacity for overflow, speed and attitude. Now, it is evident in El Requexón that he has taken a step forward and at the beginning of the year he will be ready to contribute to the team. For the signing of Sequeira to be a reality, Oviedo must release an extra-community card and the Aceves winger will be the one who leaves the club early.
The Mexican did work on the sidelines yesterday at El Requexón and if his departure speeds up, it is likely that he will not be back from work, although there is no rush in the entity either. On loan from Pachuca, the club values Aceves’ attitude and also considers him a player with projection. The problem, they maintain in Oviedo, is that he has a foreign record and it is necessary to release it to undertake new signings.
Most likely, Aceves will play for León, also owned by Pachuca, owner of Oviedo. At the moment, the Mexican soccer player is calm. Yesterday he took pictures with Oviedo fans in the sports city and participated in the Christmas toast with the rest of the squad.
Borja does not train and it is a serious doubt for the Cup. Borja Sánchez did not train yesterday at El Requexón after giving a scare in Wednesday’s session and it is a serious doubt to receive Atlético de Madrid. The man from Oviedo has muscular discomfort and is awaiting tests.
Tejera leaves Cartagena. Sergio Tejera, a former Oviedo player, has left Cartagena, after reaching an agreement with the entity to terminate the contract that he joined both parties and will play for Anorthosis Famagusta, in the First Division of Cyprus.
