It is confirmed that the Cameroonian winger will finally play for SD Huesca

Sometimes the importance of knowing how to negotiate can change the trajectory of a footballer. This could have happened to Racing de Santander with Soko. And vice versa. The Cameroonian winger he rushed into a contract several months ago that now, as much as he wants to, he can’t break it. Soko will be a new player SD Huesca.

Both parties must be clearly understood. Here there are no guilty. The Racing de Santander could not renew Soko because he had a much higher offer than the Smartbank League. When the offer came, Racing was going to slipstream Sports of the Coruna and the final outcome could not be known. He could not reach those amounts in any way.

Racing’s problem with Soko

Also at that point, Soko didn’t know what would happen. He only knew that at that moment he had a higher category offer that far exceeded the amount he received at that moment. But SD Huesca should have demanded that the contract be signed to avoid scares in the future.

From there the story is what we all know. Racing won at Riazor and completed a record second lap. And Soko became one of the most charismatic and beloved soccer players by the fans. Now Racing has been promoted to the Smartbank League and Soko would like to stay in Santander. But the contract signed a few months ago hampers any possibility.

Possible substitute for the Cameroonian

And since in football it is no use looking to the past, Racing de Santander is already working on the search for a guaranteed substitute for Soko. Many names have come out in that context to date. There has been talk of Xeber Alkain, Víctor Narro or Umaro Embaló.


But write down another name: Miguel Rodríguez. The RC Celta youth squad is being one of the great revelations of the First RFEF. In fact, against Racing on the day of promotion he gave an exhibition at El Sardinero. To seek a transfer for the next season in the Second Division, the Cantabrians would be interested. We have to wait until the end of the season, since Celta B is involved in promotion and, logically, if they are promoted, it would not come out in any way.
