El Elche, built against the clock

Elche is a mystery and it is impossible to foresee how they will respond to Real next Saturday. Their summer has only just begun taking into account that they were promoted to First on August 24. It hasn't even been a month. The architect of the feat, the coach Pacheta, was replaced and arrived in his place George
Almiron, who has barely been in command for three weeks. The people of Elche are building a team against the clock and will return to the elite to face Real with little preparation and with only two friendlies (UCAM Murcia and Barcelona in the Gamper).

After celebrating the promotion, the Elche staff only had two weeks of vacation. In addition, he saw how two of his most important players of the past year left. The ex-realist tip Jonathas does not continue in the Martinez
Valero and the left side Juan
cross arrived in Osasuna for 2.75 million euros.

The people of Elche have to build a team in record time. The two players who are assured of their presence in the match are Tete
Morente, far left from Málaga and Raul
Guti, who was presented on Sunday as a star signing after his good campaign at Zaragoza. Both point to the ‘eleven’ according to illicit information. The rest of the incorporations seem that they will not arrive in time to be measured against the Real. The two players from South American football, Jeison
Lucumí (Right winger who arrives free from Tigres) and Juan Sánchez Miño (Independiente's left back) are almost ruled out since they are waiting to receive the PCR results. The last to arrive, the striker Luke
Boyé -It is not yet official but he has already undergone a medical examination-, he could enter the call although he will not train at least until Thursday.

The lawn, a concern

The green of Martínez Valero is not in optimal condition. After presenting a terrible state during the playoff for promotion to First Division, in which it was practically impossible for the ball to roll in conditions, the grass of the Elche stadium will improve during the week. The operators finalize their set-up.
