Valencia CFTOCelades preferred Jaume Costa rather than a signing with a future that presents
Cwhen GeoffreyKondogbiahe was injured in the 34th minute against thePomegranate,CeladesI had no other natural option on the bench.WassI had to go play withEqualand thierryRanorJaume CostaThey must occupy the side position. The two jumped to warm up, but there was not a moment of doubt:before the left side veteranThat the young promise.
Thedecision, loaded withlogic and common senseEven if it had gone wrong, it forced him to wonderwhy I had not preferred the young right backsigned at the end of the market due to the decline inPicciniand for which the club has paid12 million euros to Sporting de Portugal.
Celades justified his decision later: "When we put a right on the left, nobody is surprised, but vice versa. I don't think it's any surprise." And nor it has nothing to do with the leg you play witha footballer but with the fact that in full stage of iPeter Lim's direct interventionismon the team – regardless ofMarcellin,LongoriaYGermany– Valencia pag12 million euroson a right side to whichhe is predicted a great future, but whose present still raises doubts to the coach (who was there and who came later).
Then, the club tried to make more sense of Celades decision:"Jaume Costa had already played right backI had even scored goals in that position. "It's true. Jaume Costa played in May this year in theBernabuas right side with theVillarreal. Were8 minutes and by injury of Mario Gaspar, that had no replacement on the bench. And scored a goal. The other times I played in the right wing was becausethere was no specific player in that position(in Villarreal, withJokicas a starter, Jaume played a couple of times when Mario Gaspar was injured or when he had to advance his position due to the injury of another player). He also scored a goal starting from the right back inSecond in 11-12 – seven years ago– against Hrcules and scored a goal.
JaumeCosta complied, as expected, and as he has done during theGay lesion.For that, he was transferred to Villarreal – despite Lim's doubts – this summer. lHe knew his role and is doing itto perfection.
Whatis not explained is what Thierry Correia. No matter how much money is taken when transferred in the future, theValencia is a football team and immediate results are requiredand should not afford to pay 12 million fora footballer who cannot replace an injured in Mestallaagainst Granada.
CeladesHe did what he had to do.Put the one you considered bestfor this match in these circumstances.
For a club like Valencia it is essential that you dosignings of young playerswith a certain risk of those who expect to be able to obtain a great economic benefit.Diakhabywas from that profile last year –15 million for a 21-year-old plantbut with an important nuance:I had played 55 games at Lyon. That is why he started from day one because of the injuries of the incumbents.
Correia is not to blamethat Valencia paid to Sporting de Portugal 12 million euros -2 of them destined tocommissions– by a soccer player with7 matches in the first Portuguese team. And with Celades he has had the opportunity to dispute180 minutes between Getafe and Osasuna. And when he had athird timeto put it, bound by the circumstances against thePomegranate, it did not. At least, Correia could keep rolling with thesub 21 selectionfrom Portugal this week.
