The few minutes that Luis Fariña has spent on the pitch during the pre-season have been enough to lift the expectations of the fans. He showed great individual skills and also scored a goal in a free-kick action.

With the attention focused in the signings of Lucas Pérez and Isaac Cuenca, the arrival of Luis Fariña has meant fresh air. First to all both Lucas and Cuenca haven’t even debuted yet due to the injuries, later the Argentine playmaker has showed interesting skills in the three friendly matches in which he has played, enough to raise the expectations.

Against Acádemica de Coimbra he looked sharp with his long runs, and against SC Braga he gave a lot of problems with his individual moves, especially a play at the end of the first half in which he eluded four rivals before his cross was cleared by the defense. Against Racing de Ferrol he complemented his performance with a free-kick goal.

The player talked to reporters on Wednesday and said that he’s feeling comfortable at Depor’s team, “I’m content for the goal, but it’s only useful for the confidence. The true is that the friendly games are also useful for that: to gain minutes and know the partners and until now I felt comfortable. Little by little we are noticing it an improving. “

He’s convinced that Deportivo already have a base and that for this reason he isn’t facing any problem is getting used to the team, “There’s a good base on here, with experienced players and also young lads. The base is the most important thing and I believe that Deportivo have it.”

Finally, Fariña said that it wasn’t important to see him scoring a free-kick goal in the friendly against Racing de Ferrol, “You like to score goals, but the important thing is to see the team going well, in the end it is what matters. I try to improve in that sense. I don’t have references in that kind of plays. I just kicked the ball.”
