To the renewals, the coach will add two footballers for the coming season that he could hardly enjoy, but that he is looking forward to putting in the starting eleven
Waiting for the incorporations that Luis Helguera will carry out,
García Pimienta has two signings for the 2022-23 season. The Catalan coach will be able to count, for the first time and if nothing goes wrong, with Enzo Loiodico and Pejiño together. Never before has he been able to put the French midfielder and the Cadiz winger in the same line-up due to injuries.
Vital in the club's plans, since the level of both players was sublime when they were healthy and physically well,
Enzo and Pejiño capitals will be craving again in the schemes of UD Las Palmas. If they recover their optimal version, they are undoubtedly players to watch in the Second Division. In fact,
with Pepe Mel, when the injuries gave truce, they were indisputable. Pimienta wants to enjoy them and in her notebook she has their surnames written down in red.
To Loiodice they killed him in the derby of the second round, after a criminal coup by Enric Gallego. He tried to go on, but his shoulder said stop. Then he tried again and had to go through the operating room to treat the injury he suffered in his right shoulder and which ended successfully on March 18. His last match refers to the duel against Huesca, just a week before his operation. Since then, a void.
The Frenchman had been a pillar whenever he was available to Pepe Mel. Also for García Pimienta. 24 games and a goal behind him, where he added 1,544 minutes. Already with Las Palmas in the promotion promotion, Loiodice returned to exercise with the group and even traveled with the rest of the squad to the first leg of the semifinals against Tenerife at the Heliodoro Rodríguez López.
Although he did not enter any call, having him again being one more was a tremendous joy.
The French is a much-loved player in the locker room for his nobility and humility, as well as for the yellow fans.
he could feel like a footballer in the final stretch of the championship, entering the Canarian derby from the bench, is a dagger. An extreme of yesteryear and that Pepper wants to squeeze the most. Already with Mel, at the start of the League, he became a reference in the category, scoring five goals in the first eight days.
He finished the competition with only 16 games played (751 minutes), which weighed heavily on the offensive power of Las Palmas. The Catalan coach, for his part, never hid praise for his "Peji" in the press room.
Now they will arrive at the preseason, which will start at the beginning of July, in full condition to pick up the physical tone and be able to be important again with the Sports Union.
"I've already learned that I can't play with pain anymore"said Pejiño in an interview granted to this newspaper.
Then, like Enzo, he had to have surgery.
ANDhe Andalusian went through the operating room to treat pubic discomfort that never disappeared. But that is history and both, with a valid contract, will be important.
