NOT EVERYBODY IS HAPPY AT THE SQUAD

04 Sep 2008
Taborda in private and Mun??a in public have already expressed their lack of conformity with their situation, while Aouate maintains silence. Manu has admitted his confusing role at the club and Barrag??n could be the next one since he was left out of the list for la liga. Cristian is also worried for his situation. At least Taborda and Mun??a might find an exit in South America.

The decisions taken at the club about the conformation of the squad for the new season continue to have repercussions. The overbooking at the squad forced the club’s officials to leave three players out of the list for la liga: Barrag??n, Manu and Taborda, while keepers Aouate and Mun??a were surprisingly included in the list tough Lotina didn’t want them anymore.

The whole situation has just created tension inside the squad, something the papers have started to report. The first one that showed his unhappiness was Gustavo Mun??a. One day after the market closed its doors, the Uruguayan keeper was blaming Lotina for his problems �I thought that I would be without a spot. The player can do nothing and is difficult to explain what is happening on here, in the end you are the bad guy of the film. The coach has not given me any explanation nor he is forced to do it, there are people who should give explanations to themselves. I think we should not be playing with people."

However a solution to the case with the Uruguayan keeper still open: to return to Nacional de Montevideo. According to Sportpaper AS, the negotiations between Deportivo, Nacional and the same Mun??a are very advanced and a deal could be reached soon. The details of the possible deal aren’t public yet, but in any case it will mean the definitive exit of the player since he ends his contract with Depor in June of 2009.

Another case is Sebasti??n Taborda, he hasn’t said anything in public, but the papers know he had a conversation with Richard Moar at Abegondo in order to know why he was left out of the list for la liga, apparently Moar  responded that it was a decision of Lendoiro. Later the player hit a door and as result of this, he suffered a wound in his right hand.

Like the case of Mun??a, Taborda still has a second chance, newspaper La Opini??n A Coru?±a reported on Wednesday that Atl?©tico Paranaense inscribed the player for the Brazilian league, meaning they are interested in the striker. So far Atl?©tico Paranaense is 16th after 23 matches in the Brasileiro and it needs reinforcements in order to avoid the abysm.

Another player in the mess is Dudu Aouate. Like the case of Mun??a, the Israeli goalkeeper was inscribed for la liga, but Lotina already said that Aranzubia and Fabricio are the only choices that count for him and even that Marcos Val?­n, the keeper of Deportivo B, is the third choice in his private list. All this means that Aouate won’t take part in any match and that his only choice is to wait until the winter window is opened (January 2nd). So far Aouate hasn’t said anything in public. 

Who is accepting his new role at the club is Manu, the keeper that came from Sporting Gij??n and that’s now without room in the squad. On Thursday he talked with reporters and assured that he’s accepting the decision of Lotina of leaving him out of the team and that he is open to play for Fabril, though Tito Ramallo must accept him first. He also said Jos?© Luis Tamargo is no longer his agent after he did nothing in order to find a Segunda club for him.

Meanwhile, AS reports that Antonio Barrag??n will have the approval of the doctors in eleven days, but that he will find there’s no room for him at the squad, meaning that his progress will be blocked. Lotina already said the best thing is a loan in January. Finally Deporte Campe??n (DxT) reports that Cristian is worried about his role at Depor. The Catalan was included for the game against Real Madrid though he didn’t take part of the match. DxT wrote that Lotina promised to him a chance and that Cristian didn’t search for an exit due this reason, but that now the Catalan is worried because he fears he won’t have too many minutes.
