The landing of Antoñín in this new Málaga by José Alberto is not being as many expected. The man from Malaga is called to be a fundamental footballer this season. His self-confidence and his ability to see the goal are his main guarantees and the reasons that led Manolo Gaspar to launch himself for his incorporation as soon as he was shot. However, it is difficult for him to shine in these first games.
At first, he was called to start from the left, but Kevin's notable irruption has pushed him to the center of the attack, where he is pairing up with Brandon.. And there he is finding it difficult to function to the point that in the last game he was relegated to the bench. In Almería he had a discreet match and the departure of the young man Robert improved the team in attack. José Alberto awarded the 19-year-old youth squad against Girona and the bet turned out well. Roberto did not shine in front of goal, but he did leave several details of his talent and a huge job in darker tasks.
It remains to be seen if the Asturian coach continues the eleven that gave him such a good result against him Girona or if he returns to Antoñín the starting status that Roberto is threatening at this start of the season. “I have spoken with him on several occasions and we are clear that he is going to be an important player for us. What you have to do is be calm, keep training, get the ideas we want as quickly as possible. In the club and in the coaching staff we have a lot of confidence in him and all we have to do is help him to see his best level. He is doing everything on his part to make things work out, but it is not easy to return home, all the illusion that is generated not only in him but also in his surroundings. He has to learn to live with it and perform from peace of mind, “said José Alberto about the forward in an interview with Malaga today.
Tranquility. That is the recipe that the technician points out to return to enjoy the best version of Antoñín. But while he arrives, Roberto continues pressing hard and demanding minutes. There is also the Jozabed option, another alternative that should not be ruled out although his choice would imply a change of drawing as long as José Alberto does not use it in the double pivot with Escassi given the discomfort that Luis Muñoz has dragged on his right ankle since the meeting Sunday.
