Xerez is the only club from Segunda Divisi??n that hasn’t signed any reinforcement for the season 2008/2009. In fact, the club hasn’t informed yet its players about the dates for the pre-season. However, the president of the club has said the fans should expect for signings during this week and that Depor’s Rodolfo Bodipo is one of the targets. Meanwhile, Aythami talks about his situation.

According to newspaper La Voz de X?©rez, Rodolfo Bodipo might end playing for X?©rez, the Andalusian team is currently the only Segunda club that hasn’t made any signing for the season 2008/2009. The president of the club, Joaqu?­n Morales, said on the past Friday that he was going to ask about Bodipo’s situation and also that the first signing would be announced on Monday.

However nothing occurred yesterday and now reporters are informing any announcement about new incorporations could be delayed until the weekend. X?©rez is living a complicate financial situation, the Andalusian club was denounced by some players for lack of payment and the team could end playing at Segunda B. Besides, the club was sold to a new owner and president Morales will leave the team during the week leaving his job to Francisco Garrido.

Bodipo only scored one goal in 19 liga games during the past season; the fans became desperate with his lack of aim and he was constantly whistled at the Riazor. Coach Lotina has Bodipo in the list of discards and the club is searching for a destiny for him. The Guinean striker signed for Depor in 2006 after the Galician club paid €2 million to Alav?©s. He still has three years of contract.

Meanwhile, defender Aythami Artiles talked with Riazor.org about his situation â€?Nobody inside the club has talked with me, but I already know my situation, they don’t want me and I will have to go out loaned. The coach hasn’t talked with me, but I know he doesn’t want me, I don’t count for him. As long as Lotina continues in A Coru?±a, I won’t have options. Anyway, I must work hard in order to return someday.â€?
