Giráldez establishes his hierarchy – Faro de Vigo

Three games have been enough for Claudio Giráldez to leave his mark and establish his first hierarchies at Celta with the largest squad in recent times. The coach from Louriñés has used the 3-4-3 as the header pattern and has formed a defined eleven type with a perfectly identifiable game model that is based on the premise of being the protagonist in the opposite field through possession of the ball.

The results have been mixed (a win, a draw and a loss with an average of 1.3 points per game), but the image has been good and the team’s play, despite the mistakes made, has convinced both the fans and the fans. as well as the footballers themselves, who feel more comfortable with Giráldez’s proposal than with Benítez’s constricted model.

But like the man from Madrid, The Louriñés has established hierarchies based on technical and tactical reasons, the characteristics of the rival and knowledge of the game system. Giráldez has not repeated eleven. The starting team, however, has hardly changed. With slight tactical modifications, nine players have started all the games. Eight of the stalls have been repeated, one has danced and another has no owner.

The only position that the Porriñés coach has not clearly awarded is that of the axis of the line of three centre-backs. Unai, against Sevilla; Starfelt, against Lightning; and Jailson against Betis have alternated starting in a position that the Brazilian and Renato Tapia have also occupied coming off the bench.

From an individual point of view, the biggest novelty that Giráldez’s Celta presents is the ownership of Hugo Álvarez, a young footballer who has compensated for his lack of experience with versatility and talent. The coach has used the man from Ourense in both lanes (on the left against Betis and Sevilla and on the right against Rayo), but occasionally also as a left winger, replacing Bamba. Manu Sánchez has been the starting choice for the left wing when Hugo Álvarez has played on the right, while Franco Cervi has been a bench resource for the final minutes in a couple of games.

Nine footballers have repeated all the matches: Guaita; Mingueza, Carlos Domínguez, Hugo Alvarez, Beltrán, Hugo Sotelo, Aspas, Larsen and Bamba, while Javier Manquillo has started two of the three (against Sevilla and Betis) and Manu Sánchez was the choice for the left side against Rayo. Only four players have played every minute: Guaita, Mingueza, Beltrán and Iago Aspas.

Four other players, however, have not played a single minute: Iván Villar, Kevin Vázquez, Miguel Rodríguez and Williot Swedberg, although the Swedish attacker has only been available for the Benito Villamarín clash. Giráldez has given, in any case, minutes to 20 of the 24 players he has had at his disposal. Joseph Aidoo, Mihailo Ristic, Carlos Dotor and Luca de la Torre have also not played, in this case due to injuries. Both the American and the Real Madrid youth squad were medically cleared for the last game, but Giráldez preferred not to call them up as a precaution. It remains to be seen what impact the return of both has in a position, that of midfielder, especially saturated with troops.

Unlike Rafa Benítez, who rarely exhausted the changes, Giráldez has left nothing in the bag when it comes to moving the bench. The man from Louriñés has made the five substitutions in the three games with different solutions. The modifications have affected all the team’s lines, except the goal.

One of the constant drivers of the Louriñés has been Carles Pérez, scorer of the first goal in Seville, whom Benítez’s successor has rescued from ostracism to sharpen the right lane. Another new addition has been Damián, a boy with a reserve team record who played for Gran Peña last year, whom he has used to refresh the midfield axis. Tapia and Jailson have also come off the bench to play in different positions, while Starfelt and Unai, who for Benítez were little less than essential, have done so to give breaks or replace teammates with physical problems.

What is striking is the lack of prominence that Tasos Douvikas is also having with Giráldez, a forward with an excellent relationship between goals and playing time who has only been on the green for a handful of minutes. Even Allende, who had not played until the last game against Betis, now surpasses the Greek striker in prominence.
