Federic González is the most authoritative voice within Oviedo. He is Arturo Elas Ayub’s most trusted person and that is why his statements, not very abundant, never go unnoticed. On the occasion of the renewal of the sponsorship agreement with Digi, the Aztec took the opportunity to throw several darts at former blue sports director Rubn Reyes, now in the ranks of Getafe
“The Rubén de Reyes thing didn’t do me any good, we had more things discussed and I told him that he could have waited three weeks to announce his departure but he didn’t want to do it that way and I didn’t like it,” González began by clarifying. Ziganda’s departure also had its explanation: “I spoke with Ziganda three days before and I asked him to wait but he I made another decision“.

Perhaps the hardest part came when he unveiled the internal wars of the past course between Rubn Reyes and Ziganda, a relationship that was never fluid, and that influenced the club not adopting the decision to renew the Navarrese before the arrival of the sports director, as they did a year before: “This time it was different because the last time the sports director everything time was saying that he was not the coach he had chosen, these are things that people do not know, and I do not like to comment on them but since they ask me, I say so, we wanted to avoid a similar situation with the new sports director”.

Confidence in the new
Oviedo’s sports present is called Tito Blanco and Jon Prez Bolo. The club has placed total trust in both: “If not, we wouldn’t have brought them, we hope they do a job of excellence”. The bar set last year is not easy, but González also sharpens the statements: “We stayed one goal away in 23 gamesbecause with a goal in the 16 draws or in the defeats by the minimum it would have been enough for us, but it would not exist and the people who have come are more than capable of improving it”.
The lack of news in the club does not mean that they are not working: “We have said it many times, every day we come to work and we have progress, we cannot go out every day to say what our sponsor or player projects are, everything be announced when it occurs. There are many fronts to attend to and we are aware of everything“.
In recent years, season ticket campaigns have generated controversy between the club and supporters and this time they trust that there won’t be any, although they know it’s complicated: “We can’t please everyone, we cater to what people He asks us but we have to get what is convenient for the club”
