Once again the loaned players of Deportivo didn’t shine at their teams; the injuries, lack of experience and in some cases lack of attitude contributed to see them failing. This is the analysis in the performance of Luis, Teles and Lemos.

Six players of Deportivo played loaned at other clubs during the season that has just ended. It can be said that it was a bad year for all of them as they didn’t shine at their teams, though in some cases the situation is acceptable as they were only searching for experience. Two of the loanees had to live a relegation.

This second part analyzes the performance of midfielders Álvaro Lemos and Sergio Teles, who played loaned at Segunda B with SD Compostela, plus striker Luis Fernández, who had the chance to play at Liga Adelante with CD Lugo.

Luis Fernández –Decent- (1,036 minutes at Segunda) Perhaps the loanee with the better luck on the season, the five goals scored and the assist are the proofs of it. And it’s that this 21-year-old striker joined CD Lugo in order to reinforce his experience after a positive first round with Depor in the previous campaign. He only played in 25 of the 42 matches on the season, which was the negative part, but it was for the injuries and not for the lack of confidence from coach Quique Setién.

The striker lasted in getting the pace at CD Lugo after spending scoreless his first seven games with the team, but then he scored three goals in four matches (Zaragoza, Llagostera and Mallorca), but unfortunately he suffered a knee sprain that kept him at bay for a month. He returned at the end of 2014, but by then Pablo Caballero was already the undisputed starter.

So, he spent the next seven games entering as a substitute, but his new role wasn’t an obstacle for him as he was able to score three goals within those seven games, all of them gave the victory to Lugo (Recreativo, Barcelona B & Llagostera). Unfortunately a new injury, this time an ankle sprain, sidelined him for a couple of months and the player lost the pace. Luis ended the season playing in six of the last ten games on the Segunda season and without scoring more goals. It was a positive stage for the Burela-born player, though the injuries prevented to see him achieving better marks. He will now try to convince Víctor Sánchez during the pre-season.

Sergio Teles –Irregular- (2,067 minutes at Segunda B). It was a solid season for SD Compostela, ending 8th at group 1 and fighting to enter the promotion until the end, but more was expected from this 22-year-old player. After all, he was playing at Segunda B, only one level above Tercera, the league of Depor B. The Portuguese played in 30 of the 38 matches on the season, but it never managed to have a protagonic role at the team, perhaps because the attention was more focused in players like Quim Araujo and Yacine Qasmi.

Teles scored three goals and provided three assists during the season; his best moment was to score the winning goal hosting Lealtad (2-1, October 19). His lowest moment was to be sent off visiting Guijuelo, though his team won the match (0-1. January 25). Teles is also part of the roster for the pre-season, but with so many centre midfielders at the first team, it looks difficult that he could stay in A Coruña.

Álvaro Lemos –Unfortunate- (867 minutes at Segunda B). He was 21 last season and was called to be one of the big novelties with the team that Fernando Vázquez was preparing for the Segunda season, but a serious knee injury completely changed the plans and the winger only played until the final matchdays, and did it at Tercera with Depor B. For this season, with the team at Primera, it was decided that the best was to see him playing loaned. The club sought for a Segunda club, but it preferred to close the operation with SD Compostela at Segunda B.

Things started twisted for him after the scans revealed that his knee injury wasn’t properly healed, so he needed a new recovery process and only played 11 minutes in the first round. But the winger returned stronger and ended playing in 16 of the last 17 games on the season, always on the right wing. His best moment came with the goal that he scored against a historic club, Real Oviedo, and that meant to grab a point (1-1, May 03). He was assisted by Teles in that goal. But it seems that his performance in the last stretch of the season didn’t’ convince Depor’s officials, because his contract, expiring in June, isn’t going to be renewed.
