Joselu and Lucas are the best couple of Spanish gunners

first_imgLast summer Deportivo Alavés announced the arrival of two strikers with a great reputation in European football. They were Lucas Pérez (A Coruña, 09/10/1988) and Joselu Mato (Stuttgart, 03/27/1990), who arrived from West Ham United and Newcastle respectively. Two gunners who came from trying their luck in a Premier League who, unfortunately, had not repeated the taste of their goals so regularly as other leagues of the old continent had done. The ‘7’ Coruña scored an unprecedented personal record in the League: 7 consecutive days scoring, something that only he has achieved with the shirt of two different teams in Coruña and Vitoria. A vertiginous figures from which a Joselu has not taken off, who with the goal of last Sunday at Sánchez-Pizjuán shares the figure of top national scorer of LaLiga Santander together with Roger (Levante UD) and Ángel (Getafe CF).The 9 and 8 goals of Joselu and Lucas place them as the Spanish couple that makes the most goals in the league championship. Of the 23 goals that the Vitorian team has achieved, 17 have carried the seal of one of the two. Some figures that approach, but do not exceed, the 16 goals scored by Gerard Moreno and Santi Cazorla, of Villarreal CF. This Friday, before SD Eibar, Deportivo Alavés faces a very important clash facing the goal of permanence. Joselu already knows what it is to score a goal to the armorer team, and that is that ‘9’ was the author of the two goals that marked the first home victory of the course in the Basque feud. Lucas could not travel to Seville last weekend because of discomfort in the pubis but today he has trained with the group normally. His seemed to be a fierce battle to take the position of striker of a babazorra squad who wanted to forget the Calleri and Borja Bastón last year, and the first to hit was a Joselu Mato who scored his first two championship goals in the matches against Levante UD and Getafe CF. A drought scorer of Asier Garitano during the 4,5 and 6 days made fear that the goal albiazul lost his reference, but soon Lucas Pérez joined the cause.last_img read more

What I want is to win titles, like every other player.“There’s no lacking in winning titles [at United] – we have to improve.“We are a big club, we are not here to take second place. We have to improve and make this club great.”He is a hugely popular player with fans and last season he was voted the supporters’ Player of the Year for a fourth time, while he won the Premier League’s Golden Glove trophy for the first time after keeping the highest number of clean sheets. 2 2 De Gea has been at United since 2011, joining in a £17m transfer from Real’s rivals Atletico and has earned a reputation as the world’s best goalkeeper.The club have agreed a deal to sign Fred from Shakhtar in a £52m transfer as well as Diogo Dalot for £17m, but news of De Gea’s commitment is likely to trump any new arrival.last_img read more
