DEPORTIVO’S PLAYERS IN 2012

26 Dec 2012
Bruno Gama is the player with more games in the year; the Portuguese winger only missed 2 of the 43 official games disputed in 2012. Meanwhile, Riki is the top-scorer in the year and Valerón the man that provided more assists.

Time to take a look to the performance and the stats of the players during 2012. Portuguese Bruno Gama is the player with more appearances and minutes in the year. The right winger played in 41 of the 43 official matches disputed within the period. He even played in the two Copa matches of 2012 and only skipped two games at Segunda: at Recreativo de Huelva (Feb 4) and at home against Real Valladolid (May 6).

In the first game he was injured and in the second suspended. Bruno is currently one of the two players at the Galician team that have taken part of all the 17 Primera meetings on the season –the other is Riki- Gama is also the Depor’s player with more minutes in the year that’s ending: 3,221. It’s a radical change for him as in 2011 he arrived and got injured during the pre-season, reason why he debuted in liga until November of 2011.

The second player with more minutes in 2012 is Álex Bergantiños (3,147 in 38 games). The Galician midfielder was the only field player that took part of the 42 matches on the season, but when Depor landed at Primera he wasn’t in the list of Oltra’s preferences, though later he became a normal starter. Only seven men played 30 or more official games with Depor. Valerón, Laure and Aranzubia are the only players that have participated in 30 or more games in each one of the last two years at the club.
