The surreal situation of Iván Saponjic in Cádiz

The Atlético de Madrid
will be measured this Sunday at Cádiz C.F. in the still stadium Ramon de Carranza. The Cadiz team has a large number of players related to the mattress team, among them, Ivan Saponjic, which came to the club in this winter market.

A footballer with whom the Argentine coach almost did not have Diego Pablo Simeone in the two seasons he has been at the club and has only had 45 minutes in Cup this course. For him, the visit of Atlético de Madrid It seemed like an opportunity to be able to vindicate himself, to show that he was worth.

However, it may not be possible. And it is that the Balkan forward lives a strange situation in his new club. He has been training for a week under the orders of Álvaro Cervera. But two days before the meeting with him Athletic can not debut.

The Cádiz club works against the clock to be able to make room for it. You have not yet been able to take your file officially because right now you have them all complete. The Cadiz He has to release several players, the idea is to do it with at least two, or even a few more, to make room for the Serbian and a couple of signings that he has in the making.

Cervera It does not have several players but the club cannot get them out at the moment. The one with the most options to go out is Bodiger, but that operation does not finish.

The preparer of Cadiz He is happy with it, he said, but does not know if he will be able to make it to the appointment before his former team. “He is a great player, a good spiker, he does good striker things, we have to see him on the big field. He does things that surprise you, as a forward who knows his trade. A little paradete, it is not a lot of spark but position “, he said to add” we are waiting if there are exits to be able to have him.

“I have been told that it will almost certainly come out this weekend. I don't know if this afternoon, tomorrow … ”, he added. The clock plays against the forward, who hopes to be able to play against him Athletic.


Since your arrival at Athletic from the Benfica B in the summer of 2019, Saponjic has not entered into the plans Simeone, who has barely given him five games in a year and a half, none of them since the starting eleven: two minutes against him Leganes and two against him Celtic, in the League 2019-20, and 107 in the Copa del Rey before the Cultural
Leonesa, a year ago, and the Cardassar and the Cornellá, this season.

Nothing else has played the Serbian striker, who is now looking for the route and the prominence that he has not had in the rojiblanco club, with which he maintains a contract until 2022. There were more interested teams, but finally he will play on loan at the Cadiz.
