Facundo Mura’s Journey: From Doubt to Celebration with Racing Club

On a night of celebration at the Cilindro, under the rain of water and the rain of goals that Maravilla Martínez unleashed, there was also room for a goal that had a value signified by its author. Facundo Mura in Racing sealed the final 4-1 over San Lorenzo and, surely, he experienced it in a very special way due to what happened in recent weeks, when his future was seriously in doubt; This was generated by a conflict that had occurred with the leadership due to his contractual situation. Gustavo Costas himself spoke about the Academy side after the resounding victory on Friday night.

“Mura who was leaving, who was staying… He scored a goal that will serve him well,” expressed Gustavo Costas, exultant, at the press conference. Among the changes he made in the second half, to maintain the 3-1 lead or extend it, the coach sent Mura onto the field in the 14th minute, replacing Santiago Solari. At 42 minutes, 13 after Cristian Ferreira scored, the Academia full-back received a cross from the insatiable Maravilla Martínez from the left and hit a perfect, clucking header that landed next to Altamirano’s right post. Thus, he put the bow on a rout.

The salary improvement that the defender awaits

The 24-year-old defender is waiting for a salary update for the contract he has until December 2025 and put pressure on from the pitch. About a month ago, the leadership made him an offer but, at least for now, there was no agreement. For this reason, the Academy side had agreed with Costas not to even go to the bench in the first two games: against Unión and Tigre. In the middle, there was a chance that he would go to Defense and Justice. But finally, he decided not to exert pressure to leave the club and stay to help wherever he could. This is how he returned to the list of those summoned against Estudiantes (he entered the ST) and this Friday in the Cilindro. Mura’s celebration in Racing with a special goal for him for the moment. @racingclub

In the 3-4-1-2, Mura would only enter as a winger-midfielder, where until now Costas used Gastón Martirena and Santiago Solari, the latter author of an assist against San Lorenzo and with a lot of participation on that wing. But if Racing at some point returns to the line of four, Mura could start again. At the very least, he will fight inch by inch for a place with Tobías Rubio.

Every time Mura scored a goal, Racing won by three or more points difference, in this case against San Lorenzo

Since he arrived at Racing in 2022, led by Fernando Gago, Mura has scored four goals. The previous three had been 4-0 against Atlético Tucumán, 3-0 against Arsenal and 4-0 against Colón. That is, every time the Academy side converted, Racing won by a landslide.. In total, with the Racing shirt he has played 82 games, 72 of them since the start. And he won two titles: the 2019 Champions Trophy and the 2023 International Super Cup.
