BetisTOThe winter market gave good results with Pabn or Robert, but bad with Damiao or Baptistao
LThe Betis leaders have openly acknowledged thatone of your goals in the winter marketwhich opens next January 1 isthe hiring of a striker, before the goalscoring deficiencies of the three that there are at the moment in nmina. Although they have also made it clear thatthey do not want risks in that possible signing, which will be done as long as the numbers square andbe of guarantees – as it happened in the last winter window with Bartra-.
In the Sports Directorate led byLorenzo Serra Ferrerlook for that battering ram to help finishthe many arrivals generated by Sergio Canales, Giovani Lo Celso or Joaqun, aware of the enormous difficulties of signing in the middle of competition, and even more so of a nine.
The last precedents show that it is not easy to guess:Leandro Damiao and Leo Baptistao. The first appeared in Seville and entered February 2016 due to bureaucratic problems and went as it came, with a very poor performance.His fitness was very low due to a previous injury in the Cruzeiro and only 120 minutes., distributed in three matches, in which almost did not shoot to goalkeeper and,Of course, do not mark.
The previous one in arriving at Benito Villamarn wasLeo Baptistao yielded by Madri's Atticd. It was January 2014 and the Brazilian was expected to take the flight in LaLiga, but it did not work.They played 17 games and their little contribution was a uniqueo -al Getafe in his ninth duel with the verdiblanca- and a goal pass. Very little for a footballer who currently plays for Espanyol and who gavea performance from more to less to disappear at the end.
However, not everything has been bad news.In the 2012-13 campaign, with Pepe Mel as coach, Betis was made in the winter market withDorln Pabn from the Italian Parma. A transfer that proved very fruitful because the now striker of the Mexican Monterreyhelped to put the Helipolis in the UEFA Europa League, thanks toeight goals and 4 assists in 17 gamesdisputed. Beticism looked forward to its recruitment but, finally,Pabn decided to accept an offer from Valencia, where I did not pay at the same level.
In 2009-10, Betis contractedJonathan Pereirain search of the promotion to First and responded withnine goals, two more than those signed by Robert da Pinho – who came from PSV in 2005-06-in the 19 shocks that he played. The Villamarn decided to hire him for 3.5 million andone course later he scored nine goals before leaving the club.
The Brazilian Ricardo Oliveira had dazzled Beticismin 2004-05 with 22 goals, a campaign that ended withthe Betis campen of Cup and classified for the Champions, but went to the next course after a serious injury.Return in January 2009 to make six goals in 16 games.
