A KEY WORD: SOLIDARITY

24 Nov 2009
A lot has been said during the season about the solidarity of the players on the pitch. And the best example is the fact that 10 of the 24 players at the team already scored a goal in liga. Only two teams in la liga surpass this mark.

On these days is very common to hear coach Lotina and his players to mention the word “solidarity” as one of the main reasons that explains the current good moment lived by Deportivo. The word is related to the pressure put to the rival, the hard work over the grass and the continuous aids that the players bring to their team mates throughout the matches.

And the best proof of this can be seen in the names of the players that are scoring the goals. Depor is currently the sixth best offensive line in la liga with sixteen goals in favour, on past seasons the most criticised thing was that the strikers weren’t adding too many goals to their tallies. On this campaign it isn’t different as nobody at Deportivo as scored more than two goals in la liga competition, but the difference is that everybody is putting their grain of sand in order to help the cause.

After the goal of Guardado against Atletico Madrid, it’s possible to say that ten different Depor’s players have scored at least once on the liga season. Only Real Madrid and RCD Mallorca can presume of a better number (11), which demonstrates the existence of the concept “solidarity“ inside of Deportivo.

Also to emphasise the fact that the header of Diego Colotto against Atletico Madrid has increased the tally of goals scored by the defenders to four, which is the highest mark among the rest of Primera clubs. So far Barcelona FC and Real Zaragoza are behind the Galicians with three goals conquered by their defenders.
