FHe was the last to arrive but it didn’t take him long to take ownership. Gabriel Fuentes has already been a starter for two games and is convincing Zaragoza fans. The defender was an emergency signing due to Pep Chavarría leaving Rayo Vallecano at the last minute. Coming from Junior Barranquilla, he has quickly adapted to Spanish football.
The loss of the Catalan was a hard blow for the defense of Real Zaragoza, which had been the best in the past campaign and was working in the current one, except against Lugo. There were doubts about the Colombian, but he has been dispelling them in these two clashes where he has been an important piece.
Bold in attack and solid at the back so far, Fuentes has left a good impression. He is still too early to make a definitive assessment, but the winger has landed on his feet in the team and has soon grasped the automatisms that Juan Carlos Carcedo wants. for now, He counts his games by victories and that has helped in his emergence in the hand team.
The defender lives his great opportunity at the age of 25. It is his first jump to Europe and, although he is on loan, Real Zaragoza has a purchase option of just over a million euros. Gabi does not have his future in his hands but if he has a good season, the hands could consider his continuity. His good level is one of the best news of these two victories.
