NEW MARK FOR MANUEL PABLO

18 Nov 2010
Canarian Manuel Pablo is now the fourth player at Deportivo with more matches at Primera División, and the side defender will surely reach the third spot as he’s close to surpass the mark of Donato.

Against RCD Mallorca, right-back defender Manuel Pablo completed his eight game on this liga season, and it was also his Primera match number 295 wearing Depor’s shirt, which means that he is now the four player at Deportivo is terms of liga appearances.

The Canarian passed the mark of  Sergio (294) and the good news is that he is just eight games away from Donato, who is currently third in the overall table to at the club. Therefore the Canarian will pass that mark on this season.

It will be difficult to reach the marks of Fran and Mauro Silva, especially since the 34-years-old veteran is living his last year at the club, though he has a clause in his contract that will extend his career at Depor for an additional season if his able to play twenty-five official games on the campaign, so far he has nine including the first-leg in Copa against Osasuna. To mention that among the all-time top ten list, only Valerón still as an active player of Depor, but he is 60 matches under the mark of his former partner at UD Las Palmas.

Manuel Pablo is currently living his 13th season at Deportivo and, taking apart the two seasons that he missed due to his serious injury (2001/02, 2002/03), he always had an important participation in the lineups of coaches Irureta, Caparrós and Lotina. Actually, last season he was the third player with more liga minutes, while in the current campaign he is sixth in the list with 720 minutes on the pitch, just behind Rubén Pérez (888), Lopo (855), Colotto (851), Juan Rodriguez (831) and  Adrian (842).
