Ferreyra: the ordeal of the wrong bet of ‘nine’

Home   /   Ferreyra: the ordeal of the wrong bet of ‘nine’

first_imgThe striker has only finished seven times in LaLiga in the 536 minutes he has played, while other batters such as Jonathan Calleri (28 shots in 1226 minutes), Raúl de Tomás (15 pitches in 360 minutes) or Wu Lei (19 shots in 951 minutes) significantly outperform him.With the elimination in the Europa League in the absence of the return and after the resounding 4-0 of the first leg, the situation of Ferreyra has signs of getting worse from here to the end of the championship. For Abelardo Fernández is the fourth forward. The player, with one of the highest salaries of the squad, will end his assignment in June and return to Benfica. A signing without performance. Before the Rubi case exploded in Espanyol, which ended up with the coach coming out the back door to Seville, there was a long and tended talk about Facundo Ferreyra in the planning of the next course. With Borja Iglesias (who had already agreed to a clause of only 28 million) in the shop window, the Argentine forward had arrived in January to be the future nine of Espanyol. But Rubi didn’t have them all with her. He had barely aligned him (209 minutes) in four months and believed that he could not be the replacement for Galician in case of sale. Then the coach left. David Gallego arrived. And Ferreyra was nine. The investment was made by Matías Vargas, one extreme, and not by a forward.Nine months after that earthquake in May and after investing 21 million in Raúl de Tomás, the Argentine forward has participated in 1,258 minutes between Liga, Copa and Europa League, scoring eight goals (six of them in the previous one), but his upward trajectory in the team broke down just when Eibar scored on day 4 its only goal in the domestic competition. He was injured and went into a bit. Since then, he has only participated in eight league games, three starts. He has not scored and has barely generated danger. Used to play within the area and lacking confidence, Ferreyra goes unnoticed in most games. In Wolverhampton he had the clearest chance that Rui Patricio stopped, while then he touched 23 other balls in different areas of the field, only one in the area.last_img
