Formula Pellicer, revelation of Ramón, captaincy for Ismael, Jairo and the AFE

Equipment under construction. Málaga took three invaluable points from Castellón. This victory has a lot of value despite being on the second day due to the complicated circumstances, by all known, that the entity lives. The work of Sergio Pellicer, the Malaguista coach, focused on separating the sporting aspect from everything else, is paying off. Quarry, commitment, courage and the philosophy of ‘step by step’ promoted by Granada and that has taken them from Second to Europe.

Escassi endured with a fissure in a rib. Tremendous example of dignity, professionalism and honor. Playing with a cracked rib is more than annoying, painful. But Escassi did not wrinkle. He lasted like a champion for 90 minutes and at a very good level. He suffers the fissure after a blow he suffered in Tenerife. This is called commitment.

Ismael, youngest captain. The one from Linares was once again the youngest footballer to assume responsibility for the bracelet at just 19 years old. To find a similar fact we would have to go back to 2014. Vallejo, today Granada's central defender, was captain at 18 years old. Ismael retired injured. He suffers a left adductor injury. Pending diagnostic tests. When the transfer deadline closes on October 5, the squad will decide by vote who will be the captain.

Ramón Enríquez, the midfielder of the future. The one from Órgiva (Granada) was shown with a formidable goal that gave Malaga victory. Speaking to GOL he commented: “It was in a rebound in a corner. I have stolen the ball from an opponent, I have advanced and I have looked for the far post from the outside and, luckily, I have scored a goal ”. It is clear that this goal was not a churro.

Decisive meeting with the AFE. This Monday the third and perhaps definitive meeting of José María Muñoz, Malaga judicial administrator (hereinafter AJ), with the AFE (Association of Spanish Footballers) will take place. The players' union wants the AJ to withdraw the ERE. AJ will not do it, so the fearsome Employment Regulation File will be activated with all the consequences. Curves ahead.

Waiting for Jozabed and Jairo. The first was the ninth signing of Malaga, but this week it did not enter the call for the Covid protocols. Jairo is still waiting for Laliga to accept his registration. Your environment thinks that the operation can and should be done. The downside is that you lose your patience and catch on to another train. They are also looking for a goalkeeper … and Cádiz has one left over (Dani Sotres or David Gil). René or Cristian Rivero, other candidates, it seems that they will not come.

Friday fun. For the second time this season, Málaga have been given a game on Friday. This time against Alcorcón. It already happened to him before Castellón. The League-Federation battle caught him as a collateral victim. Pellicer is angry because he is obliged to prepare the game for Friday being aware that they can put it on Saturday or Sunday. It's a joke.

Hicham's misfortune. The Moroccan left at 89 'in place of the injured Ismael Casas and in his first race he broke. Muscle injury to the left quadriceps. Pending evolution. A pity because Málaga is not overflowing with fast wingers.

Cifu's goodbye. The defender has been out of Malaga for several days, with the club's permission, to finalize his move to Elche, which should be official in the next few hours.

What about Keidi Bare? The Albanian has not been registered by Malaga because he hoped to close his transfer to Espanyol. But this seems to have cooled down because it doesn't quite fit into Vicente Moreno's idea. AJ discussed another possible offer. Have to wait.
