Luis Muñoz ‘the desired’: a leader with a future and stripes of a boss

Luis Muñoz has been the most desired ‘signing’. And we put quotation marks 'signing' because in reality it has been the renewal of a contract that concluded at the end of the 2019-20 season. It seemed that the man from Malaga would fly from the Rosaleda. But the circumstances and, above all, his tremendous desire to continue have been key to making what seemed impossible possible.
Of all the offers that it has had, the most outstanding have been two, one from Tenerife and the other from Elche. Engaging enough proposals. They did not work because Luis Muñoz had in his heart and mind to stay at home. And so it has been. He renewed until 2022, he finally has a professional number (he has inherited Adrián's 8) and will have stripes. He will certainly be one of the team captains.

The central defender and midfielder gave some interesting words in Ser Deportivos, from Cadena Ser de Málaga. “I told my representative how I felt about the club, I knew it was a difficult situation. I told him I wanted to wait for Málaga ”, He specifically mentioned Elche's proposal. “Yes, that existed.” But Manolo told me to be calm, that the club was going to make every effort to sign me up. I took his word for it because since he came here he spoke to me clearly. As he was a clear and honest person, I told him that if he went with the truth ahead of him, he would trust ”.

One of the most interesting and emotional moments of the program was when Mari Carmen, Luis Muñoz's grandmother, came on the air, a staunch supporter of Málaga and a fan of her grandson. “My grandmother called me a lot, she asked me. I explained to him a little that I was waiting. She told me to wait to be here. ” Now Luis Muñoz hopes to find the desired rhythm and that Vallecas (a thunderous 4-0 defeat) “won't happen again.”.

He referred to the complicated issue of the ERE that has led to the departure of eight players. “It is not an easy situation, each one fights for his own and it is something that must be understood. Wishing them the best, they know they can count on me for whatever they need if I can help them with something ”.

Orlando Sá will miss the match against Las Palmas

On the other hand, the club has reported that Orlando Sá suffers an injury to the adductor muscles of the right hip that has prevented him from being part of the training this Fridays. Cristo, Lombán, Hicham and Joaquín Muñoz also follow their respective recovery processes.

The Portuguese forward will miss this Sunday's game against Las Palmas. Setback for Málaga and for the player himself who is having a hard time guiding his adaptation process after having landed at La Rosaleda from Belgian Standard de Liège.
