Munir: the wall of Malaga and the heir of Deusto and Gallardo

Munir, with 29 goals conceded in his 38 games played, is the ‘Zamora’ of the Second Division. 0.76 on average. The player from Melilla has overcome Alberto Cifuentes (Cádiz) and Diego Mariño (Sporting) in a beautiful fightIt is highly deserving of the fact that Munir is the least goalscored goalkeeper in the category in a season in which Málaga has gone through so many difficulties. The stops of the Moroccan international have given more than ten points to his team. Salvation points. Munir has a contract with Malaga until June 30, 2021. To safeguard this medal, Sergio Pellicer did not line him up on the last day of the championship against Almería. In his place came the young Gonzalo Cretaz who did very well.

It is not the first time that a Málaga goalkeeper has been awarded for being the least beaten. In the season 1971-72 Deusto took this recognition because he received 31 goals, in this case, in the First Division. In that campaign the team with the fewest goals was Valencia (30 goals) but Meléndez (19 games) Abelardo (eleven) and Cota (five) played. Deusto, once international, is considered one of the most important goalkeepers in the history of the club along with Américo, Koke Contreras, Gallardo, Fernando Peralta, Koke Contreras, Arnau or Willy Caballero. And of course Munir.

The other 'Zamora' is José Antonio Gallardo, with painfully special connotations. On December 21, 1986 he was shocked after an unfortunate collision with the Celta striker Baltazar. He passed away a week later and was recognized posthumously. One of the access doors to the La Rosaleda stadium bears his name, Gallado, with 18 goals, was at that time the least swept goalkeeper of Segunda.
