GOOD-BYE PABLO ÁLVAREZ

05 Jun 2012
Right winger Pablo Álvarez played his last game with Deportivo at El Madrigal; he never earned a starting role with the three coaches that passed through Depor within the six seasons he spent at the team, but he never complained of the situation.

The match at El Madigal surely was the last official presentation for some of the players that faced the season at Segunda División, and the first name in the list is Pablo Álvarez, who´s leaving the club after six years. “The Shark” was even the captain of the team as he was the man with more time at the club among the eleven starters of Oltra.

The true is that the career of Pablo at Depor was unstable; he arrived injured from Sporting Gijón and never earned a protagonic role with the three coaches that passed through the club within the last six years –Caparrós, Lotina and Oltra-

And it’s that the 32-year-old winger played 85 games in liga wearing the Blanquiazul, but he was only a starter in 34 opportunities. His best moment arrived within the first two years of Lotina at the club, period of time when, despite not been a regular starter, he was constantly used as an alternative during the second halves. Later he was loaned to Racing Santander.

The best of him on this season came in the Copa series with UD Levante, though he missed a penalty at the last minute, a failure that could have changed the tie. El Madrigal has been a special place for him, a least during his stage at Depor, because he was picked for the first time for a liga clash with Depor playing there, and now it represented his farewell match.

The Shark said good-bye taking to Radio Onda Cero, “I really would have wanted to play more time and now I’ll miss the people and my friends at the team. The group of players on here is great and that’s what I will remember from here. I don’t know what will happen with me, things are stopped, I didn’t play too much and it’s hard to get a team, so let’s see what happens. “
