MARCHENA RETURNS TO DEPORTIVO

03 Sep 2013
The signing of Carlos Marchena was confirmed on Mondays night after the centre-back signed his contract with the club. He made the medicals early in the morning. Last season he was an importance player at defense despite the relegation.

Carlos Marchena signed a one-year renewal with Deportivo. The Andalusian centre-back pushed for his return and landed to A Corua during the weekend. On Monday he made the medicals and hours later was signing his new contract with the Galician club.

The exits of Ze Castro and Aythami Artiles were leaving coach Fernando Vzquez with the only options of Kak and Pablo Insua, plus Uxo Marcos, who will be playing with Deportivo B. So, the club was convinced that this reinforcement was needed.

For this reason the negotiations with Marchena didnt start until the exit of Aythami was confirmed, it has been reported that the defender rejected bigger offers, like the one coming from RCD Mallorca, this since he wanted to return to Deportivo.



Marchena after making the medicals
Before signing his new contract, Marchena talked to reporters and explained why hes coming back, I always had the intention of coming to Deportivo and thats why Im content, happy, enchanted for returning. I was always happy in A Corua and would love to give back the love that people offered to me on last year.

Marchena was an important piece on last season; he was the leader of the defense and left a positive impression despite the poor record of the team regarding the goals allowed. The main problem with him were the injuries, precisely the situation that caused him to miss many games; actually he didnt play in the last stretch of the season, just when Depor needed him the most.
