Levante reconstruction hand Joaquin Caparros
Levante has started a radical reconstruction at the hands of Joaquín Caparrós. From the bankruptcy of 2008 that almost cost him disappearance, Levante had been characterized by signing players who were not at their best or were defenestrated at their previous clubs.
It is a classic of the last three summers that the last movement of the Granota club is always to bring its forward reference in the final sigh of the transfer market. The player in question is usually of color and of international prestige but is not in his best moment.
Felipe Caicedo, Aruna Kone and Obafemi Martins arrived, they saw and triumphed. The three scored goals and left a good pinch in the coffers of the Valencian club, although the departure of the last one was not in the best way or at the best time. Waiting for the icing on this year, the club has started a clear remodel.
The brilliant European participation made the club take a level leap in a very short time, pero el “Barkero case” dirtied the end of last season, leading to an acceleration in the expected cycle change.
Four of the five involved have taken the way out. Sergio Ballesteros, Levante captain and emblem, Juanlu, a player who has scored practically all the historic goals of Levante, Munúa who has gone to Florentina and Barkero himself who has signed for Zaragoza, have left the club under the shadow of suspicion. Only Juanfran has managed to save the screen and only at the express request of the new coach Joaquín Caparrós, As he recognized in an interview with the Valencian newspaper Superdeporte.
The renovation is being deep. So far, Levante has closed seven incorporations in addition to the Utreran coach, which is a clear example of the quality leap that the club chaired by Quico Catalán wants to undertake.
Andrea Ivanschitz, Xumetra, Javi Jiménez Issam El Adoua, David Barral, Sergio Da Silva Pinto and Married, that arrives injured until November, So far they complete the list of signings of the Orriols club. But they don't seem like they'll be the only ones. Also, with the arrival of Caparrós, the quarry is expected to make a leap forward in a team that already has six homegrown players in the first team or a record of it. Vicente Iborra is expected to be the team leader, even though its renewal is in the air.
Reconstruction and quality leap, also bring the call “FIFA virus”. Loukas Vyntra, Pape Diop, Keylor Navas, Andrea Ivanschitz and Issam El Adoua are regulars with their national teams, while Rubén comes from participating in the World Sub 20 held in Turkey.
Definitely, a clear sign of growth and progression in a club that in 2008 was on the verge of disappearance and a preseason without players was beginning. If the club continues with the line of work and humility, successes will keep coming. The fans also have to add and not lose the horizon. Never forget the past without forgetting the future.
