On Monday, Coloccini, Jairo, Rodri and Adri??n were the four ?new’ faces that joined the pre-season stage at Abegondo. These four players are the last ones returning from vacations. The Argentinean assured after the training session there are no offers for him and that he hopes to stay at the squad for the new season.

Fabricio Coloccini and the loaned players that performed at Segunda Divisi??n during the past season returned on Monday in order to join the pre-season stage at Abegondo. The squad trained in a single session and will do it twice on Tuesday. Coloccini had more vacations since he played a couple of matches with Argentina’s national squad within the last weeks, while Jairo, Rodri and Adri??n ended the season at Segunda until June, reason why they enjoyed fifteen more days to rest.

Who didn’t train on Monday were Alex Berganti?os, Momo, Aythami and Rub?n Castro. Players that were loaned out on the past season and that are currently closing their exits to other clubs. Another absentee was Julian de Guzm??n. The Canadian midfielder missed the session for illness. The training was soft and consisted in a recuperation session since the squad played a game on Saturday.

After the training ended, coach Miguel Angel Lotina talked in the press room. The Basque said that Fabricio will be the goalkeeper for the second-leg in Intertoto and also appointed that Z? Castro could make his debut in the same encounter ?It’s too early to talk about it. But If Pablo (Amo) is not ready, and we have to watch Lopo too, Z? Castro could play. Dani (Aranzubia) is a keeper with tremendous conditions, but he still has to improve his pace, besides I see Fabricio is calmed and I think he’s better than the past year, with more confidence. Definitely, he’s competitive.?

Later Fabricio Coloccini talked with reporters, the Argentinean said that he’s happy and wishing to continue at Depor ?Here we are, content and working once again. As I always said it, I’m content, I’m fine here and for the moment, I will continue. There are no offers and I still have a contract with Depor. I still don’t know about a possible renovation of my contract, it depends on the club. I will like to see them making the proposition. I am fine here and it depends on the club.?

Coloccini also discarded himself for the second-leg in Intertoto against Bnei Sakhnin, match that will be played this Saturday at the Riazor ?It’s difficult to see me playing for the second-leg in Intertoto. I have just arrived and it’s impossible to see me fit to play the match.?
