Eldense announced this Sunday that it will be joining Manu Nieto, a quality and dynamic forward on loan from Andorra, where he was promoted to the Second Division last year.
Nieto, 24 years old and training at the Betis and Cádiz youth academies, played 26 official matches for the Principality team (12 from the start), played a total of 1,145 minutes and scored four goals, including a brace. Previously, in 2020/21, Cádiz played 2 matches with the first team against Sevilla and Atlético de Madrid in the top category, both losing and accumulating 13 minutes of experience in the elite teams.
In two seasons with the Betis subsidiary, he played in 16 games in Segunda B and 46 matches born in Cádiz, and also in the bronze category of Spanish football, where he scored 9 goals. His arrival will, first and foremost, add mobility to Barça’s offensive front, ahead of the pitch in the First RFEF.
Defeat against UCAM
A season whose beginning is getting closer and closer. This weekend, Eldense played in their fifth friendly match at Nuevo Pepico Amat, where they added their first defeat of the summer by losing 0-1 to UCAM Murcia. Barça’s coach Fernando Estévez was satisfied with his team’s performance despite the defeat.
“I keep the positive things, especially the attitude of the kids. We did a lot of things that depended on us very well. In addition, the fans spontaneously gave the team the push when they needed it”, valued the coach.
“We still don’t have some money due to deals or injuries. With three players who have been with us for two days, we need to give some continuity to the people who came in this week. We don’t have a matchup process and we’re on the right track because the sentiments conveyed by the team, both in attitude and behavior, are positive,” he added. .
