ANDhe time of Miguel Torrecilla for Real Zaragoza is leaving more shadows than lights. Of course, with the forwards it is not that there are shadows, it is that it is an absolute blackout. His signings in the scoring section in the three windows he has had has been a total disaster. The sports director ends his contract in June and, except for a major surprise, will not continue with the new ownership, like Juan Ignacio Martínez.
The man from Salamanca arrived in December 2020 at the mao club and his battering ram to solve the problem with the goal was lex Alegra, who only managed to score a target in 15 days and almost 1000 minutes. Later, in the summer, their bets were two dismissals from Cdiz, Nano Mesa and Álvaro Gimnez, who have not met expectations either.
The player from Tenerife, affected by injuries, has barely managed two goals in 23 games and more than 1,000 minutes. And he will not be able to raise that figure, since due to his shoulder injury he is not expected to play again this season. Meanwhile, the man from Elche accumulates five goals in 31 games and almost 2,000 minutes.
With these numbers and the team in trouble, Torrecilla was only able to find Sabin Merino, who did not count in the Legans, and sign him with a contract of three and a half seasons. A footballer who is already 30 years old. Far from proving his worth, the Basque has yet to see a goalkeeper in 13 games and 740 minutes.
Therefore, The summary of the sports director’s management with the forwards is that his four strikers have scored eight goals in 82 games and played almost 5,000 minutes. An absolute disaster. Although he got it right with Eugeni and Grau, he has never been able to get it right with the attackers. That is one of the reasons they will leave you out. Another is the famous ointment, where Real Zaragoza have never really been and have run out of options too soon.after spending more time fighting not to go down.
