The Atlético de Madrid will be measured at Rayo Majadahonda tonight in the Copa del Rey. A match that will be a little more special for three footballers who once formed in the lower categories of the rojiblanco team, and who are now part of the majariego team that he directs Abel gomez.
Without a doubt, one of the names that will be on everyone’s lips will be that of Hector Hernandez. In principle, he is expected to start the game from the bench. But if someone is special to play the Copa del Rey against him Atlético de Madrid that’s the Canarian striker.
Hector Hernandez shared training sessions with the squad that LaLiga won in 2014 and was runner-up in Europe under the command of Simeone. That season he played only two games, one of them in the Copa del Rey against him. Sant Andreu in the lap in the Vicente Calderón. He left 14 minutes and as soon as he left he made the tie at one. Already in discount time Alderweireld would put the final 2-1. A game that was never at risk after the 0-4 in the first leg.
But that goal in his first minutes defending the shield of the bear and the strawberry tree allowed him to fulfill a dream of a declared mattress fan since he was little. The following campaign he would play a little more than a quarter of an hour on the first day with the Atlético de Madrid. But he never again had options, despite having entered several calls and training regularly under the orders of the Cholo.
The club yielded to Elche, Albacete, Malaga Y Rayo Majadahonda to follow its evolution, but the player did not finish exploding. In the summer of 2019 he leaves you free to leave for a season at Fuenlabrada, after that last season he played in the Cultural Leonesa And this summer at the age of 26 he returned to the Majariego team to try to take another leap in his career.
Although he will not be the only footballer of the Rayo Majadahonda that was formed in the lower categories of the Atlético de Madrid. The one that does have options to be the owner is Borja gonzalez. A right-back who came to be summoned under the orders of Simeone and that after playing in the rojiblanco subsidiary he went to Athletic San Luis. After his Mexican adventure he returned to Spain first to wear the shirt of Las Rozas, after the Sanse and now the rayista team.
Finally, there is Manny who did some training with Simeone. Highlighted in the Atlético de Madrid B as a left winger, although in recent years football has turned him into a winger. After leaving the Athletic tried his luck in the Celtic and then in the Elche. Now, at 23 years old, he hopes that Rayo Majadahonda help you reach the elite of soccer.
