Edgar, the son of the striker who conquered Sarriá

The central Betis debuted yesterday in Primera. His father, Lluís, shone in Espanyol in the early 1990s.


Edgar was one of the great names of the triumph of Betis against Valencia. The canterano debuted in Primera being the third central in liza before the sanction of Feddal and the injury of Bartra and left good details before leaving the field with physical discomfort. "It is a position in which I had never played, the efforts are not the same and I preferred to ask for change," said the Betic defender after the duel. Until then, he knew how to give Rubi's scheme some consistency with physical and air potential. He stood between Mandi and Sidnei and did not hesitate to move between the position of libero and pivot: "The coach gave me confidence since mid-week and people helped me a lot to play."

He is not the first canterano to be released by Rubi's hand. Ismael also did it at this start of the course and the quarry takes center stage while the team tries to find its place in this League. The case of Edgar is curious: he is the son of Lluís González, Espanyol striker between 1991 and 1995 who managed to become one of the idols of Sarriá's fans. The central now finds its time in the elite after being released last year already in the Copa del Rey under the orders of Quique Setién.

"I hope to continue this debut in Primera", outlined the player after the clash against him Valencia. He still has to improve a lot to join elite football, but his start-up delivers optimism to the green-white fans. Look to the future waiting for more opportunities knowing that Rubi's trust and respect for Villamarín fans won. Bartra aims to return this week and Feddal will also be available, but that does not stop the illusion of the young defender, who exposed his qualities to leave them in the hands of his coach.
