The Asturian team has great aspirations for this season
Since the Orlegi group took over the Sporting Gijon, the illusion has seized the fans. It is not for less, because they have achieved important signings in the summer market and they have Abelardo, a club legend, on the bench. But that’s not all, but also Sporting de Gijón is very clear about what will be their goal for the winter market.
The doubts of the past to make the squad and on the bench have disappeared. In fact, one can see a great communion between the players, which were conjured up at the beginning of the season to achieve the goals set by the club. Objectives that are none other than fight for promotion positions.
The exciting project of Sporting de Gijón
This summer market the Asturian team has achieved great signings, although not all that they wanted. Players like Jony, Cristo González, Pablo Insua or Cote with experience in the category, have come to the club to raise the roof of the team. But they have also acquired interesting players such as Juan Otero, Milovanovic or Jordán Carrillo…
In the same way, they have also got a key player in Carlos Izquierdoz, who from the first moment has become one of the team’s leaders. But the Asturian club still had plans to make one more signing. A signing that was attempted until the market closed, but that did not materialize.
The pending objective of Sporting de Gijón for winter
That signing is none other than Dani Ojeda, a footballer for SD Ponferradina who was on the radar of the Asturian team’s sports management. The footballer from Gran Canaria has performed at a high level in the Santander League and so far this season he has already scored two goals. However, despite being essential at SD Ponferradina, he could end up being transferred.
As we know, the player’s contract ends next June, so the winter market will be SD Ponferradina’s last chance to get something out of his sale. For his part, Dani Ojeda would welcome joining a project like Sporting de Gijón, because he knows that he has serious options to achieve the long-awaited promotion from the Santander League after years in the second category.
