Liga Santander: Villarreal, a quarry that never stops | LaLiga Santander 2019



Fer Nio is the thirteenth player from the base football that debuts with Villarreal by Calleja

Fer Nio, in a match with Villarreal C.

Javier Calleja will be able to complete an eleven with all the players of the quarry of Villarreal whom he has made debut with the first team. The last of them is Fer Nio, who makes number 13 on a list inaugurated by Ramiro Guerra shortly after landing the Madrid technician on the bench. The striker of Villarreal C had the opportunity to play in the final leg of the meeting in front of Girona, in which the yellow team made the pass to the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey.

Nio is the third player of the quarry that debuts this season with the first team. Previously Miguel Ngel Leal, Migue, had done the first round of the Cup against Comillas, the same match in which another subsidiary's football player, lex Baena, debuted. However, the case of Nio, taking into account that he has made his debut with Villarreal without having yet played in the subsidiary.

The Andalusian striker, son of Fernando Nio -who was a central team like Mallorca or Elche, among others-, was one of the components of the youth that last season achieved the double conquering both the league and the Copa del Rey. It was precisely Javier Calleja who made him debut in Honor Division when he directed the youth, just a few months after arriving at Villarreal. This season, his site is in the second subsidiary, Villarreal C, but the plague of casualties in the attack of the first team has given him the opportunity to debut.

Boy he is the thirteenth player of the quarry who plays with Villarreal in any of the three competitions. The first to do so was Ramiro Guerra, who in the blink of an eye had played League, Cup and Europa League with the yellow team. Later, Dani Raba, Ander Cantero, Gens Montolio, Manu Morlanes, Pedro Martnez and Sergio Lozano will follow, all of them in the first season of Calleja on the bench. Last campaign was Samu Chukwueze, Quintill and Andrei who had the opportunity to debut with the first team at the hands of the Madrid technician, although Pepe Castao and Ivn Martn will also do so in the brief stage of Luis Garca Plaza. This campaign three more players have joined – Migue, Baena and Nio – to raise the number of players that Calleja has made debut with Villarreal to 13.

Since the rise of the yellow team to Primera Divisin there are already 84 players who have played in the first team in any of the competitions in which he has participated. A list that inaugurates, precisely, Javier Calleja the 1999-2000 season, and of which a good number of footballers of the current squad as Mario Gaspar, Pau, Gerard, Cazorla, Chukwueze, Trigueros, Morlanes, Quintill, Bruno or Moi Gmez
