Once UD’s promotion to First Division has been completed, the yellow team’s sports management, led by Luis Helguera, has the machinery activated to reinforce a template that is up to compete in the highest category of national football Given that the experience of the players who have a current contract in addition to Sandro, who will extend his relationship with the yellow team, only marks 362 games played at Olympus.
for now The great banners of Las Palmas de Pimienta, in the event that he renews his contract and continues on the Island, will be Sandro and Jonathan Viera. Between the two homegrown players they have accumulated 219 games in their journey through the highest national category.
The first, for which one million euros will be paid as agreed between Huesca and UD, He has also scored a total ofand 27 goals in Primera with the shirts of Barça, Málaga, Valladolid, Huesca and Getafe –in Sevilla, where he played 13 games, he failed to get wet–.
Besides, the yellow striker has recorded six games in the Europa League with one goal, nine in the Champions League, with another target; and eight games in the Premier League, when Everton signed him after his best season in the First Division with Málaga, when he registered 13 goals against their rivals in the League.
Marvin, Kaptoum, Sidnei, Jiménez, Andone, Loren and Vitolo, who end their relationship: 640 duels
BesidesJonathan Viera, despite his flashiness and divinity, has 134 battles on Olympus, 90 of them with the yellow jacket after he returned from his experiences at Valencia -18 games and 2 goals- and Rayo Vallecano -26 duels and 5 targets–.
The yellow captain, who if he plays ten more games next season with UD will be a centenary, record 21 celebrations with the team of his life. The one he left to play 88 battles with Beijing Guoan, also in the top flight, but in Chinese football.
Beyond these two banners, the experience of matches in the First Division among the members of the squad that was promoted last Saturday and that maintains a valid contract beyond June 30 of this year is scarce.
Because the list of wars on Olympus would be much higher if Vitolo (203), Florin Andone (91), sydney Da Silva (176) and Loren Moron (134) were to continue at UD: Among these four players, the LaLiga service card would stand at 604.
Other troops that are more outside the club than inside, such as Marvin Park (4), Alvaro Jimenez (22) –these two on loan– and Oscar Clemente (1)they would add 27 more appearances in elite football.
And it is that of those who are expected to continue in Las Palmas next season, we should look at the 39 games of Marc Cardona first. The striker made his debut with Eibar in the 2018-19 season, in which he signed three goals in 17 games and added 22 more services to Osasuna in the following season and a half -before being loaned to Mallorca-, to add just one goal with the red shirt
Valles, Domínguez, Sergi, Álex, Enrique, Moleiro, Kirian and Coco have not played in the highest category
Beyond the experience of the UD top scorer along with Viera and Sandro this season with seven darts, the one who has played the most with the stars of the national competition is Nuke Free, that in his year in the First Division with Elche he played 20 games –784 minutes–; to which it would be necessary to take into account another twenty that he played in his time in France with the Stade de Reims.
Similar situation to the one you have experienced Loio saysthat although he does not have experiences in the First Spanish, Yes, he was able to debut in Ligue 1 with Dijon and play 21 games between 2017 and 2020.
A peculiar question is that reside one Wilfrid Kaptoumwho has 15 games with Betis in LaLiga Santander, but that despite the fact that UD has a contract extension clause to keep him for two more seasons on the Island, it does not look like he will continue in 2023-24.
separate question deserves Álvaro Lemoswho has a contract until 2025 and his future is uncertain despite his five games in the First Division and a goal with Celta.
Testimonial matches of Benito, Pinchi and Fabio
Of the players who continue to have a contract for next season with UD, it is worth highlighting the flashes that three of them have experienced. The first, Benito Ramírez, who has accumulated four games in the First Division spread over two seasons and 180 minutes. The villager, who will have his record again after having recovered from the back injury that prevented him from competing in the second round of the current league, made his debut against Deportivo de la Coruña in the 2016-17 season and spent two minutes on the pitch, to which he added 14 more on matchday 33 against Alavés. One year later, the relegation season, he played against Atlético de Madrid (15′), Villarreal (44′), Levante (15′) and Girona (90′). Fabio González for his part played as a starter that same campaign against Atlético de Madrid and spent 64 minutes against the colchoneros. He had his chance against Valencia, but he fell at the last minute. The one who also has a game on his roadmap is Pinchi, who played 1 minute for Deportivo precisely against UD. | DR
