Real societyTOThe azkoitiarra has become a fixed Garitano and takes more minutes than Illarra or Oyarzabal
Igor Zubeldia is, with 690 minutes, the player of the Real Sociedad most used by Asier Garitano in the eight days of the League that take, in front ofAsier Illarramendi, Mikel Oyarzabal or Willian Jos,that in principle they were destined to be those that more time were on the green one. The Azkoitiarra midfielder has become the undisputed unexpected for the Bergara technician.
Zubeldia seemed to have it complicated in the first days of Garitano in San Sebastian,when by the losses of Hctor Moreno, with his selection, and Ral Navas, for injury, was used as a center in the tactical training of the preseason. Who knows if maybe, instead of not counting on him, the coach did it to improve his defensive concepts.
The case is that the '5' played in the back in the friendlies against Eibar, Osasuna, Athletic or Deportivo Alavs,but with Moreno already in the form of his usual pivot position in the final test against Stuttgart of former Realist Tayfun Korkut, and the result must have liked Garitano so much that kept him in the center of the field at the premiere league in Villarreal and from then until now.
Zubeldia has played 690 minutes of the 720 that take the championship, losing the remaining 30 to be replaced in the absence of that time of the end of the game against Rayo, with 1-2 in the electronic of Anoeta and a yellow card that limited its delivery in a phase in which the txuriurdin were overturned to the attack. The other seven games he has played full and has been one of the best of his team.
