Kubo's New Life

In the League, the Japanese has in four games with Getafe almost the same minutes that he played at Villarreal in four months. In a week visit to Real Madrid.


The coach's confidence in his players is key to their development, especially when they are young. This is what José Bordalás is showing with Takefusa Kubo. The Japanese has found his best version under the orders of the Alicante technical director, who has him as a fundamental piece for the remainder of the season. This is shown by the numbers: counting only the League, Take has already in four games with Getafe almost the same minutes (254 ') that he played playing more than four months with Villarreal, where in 16 games he played 292.

If the ratio of minutes per game is analyzed, the data is even more illuminating. In Getafe he disputes 70% of the minutes, while in the Yellow Submarine he was only on the grass for 20%. Although it is true that Unai Emery counted more on Kubo for the Europa League (he played 375 '), the coach used to put his second unit for the continental competition, and most of them had more presence than the Japanese at the end of week in League.

In less than a month it can be deduced that Kubo's change of scenery was a success. Both the player and Real Madrid wanted to enjoy every possible minute in the Primera, and that is how it is with their new team. In addition, he does it as a left-handed extreme, a common position in the white team and in which Zidane does not have too many spare parts. He currently uses Marco Asensio and Rodrygo, who is currently injured. From the sports direction they do not lose track of him and closely follow his evolution.

Getafe will experience one of the most complicated weeks of the season. This Saturday he will visit Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán (21:00 Movistar + LaLiga), while during the week, on Wednesday, he will play his postponed match against Real Madrid in Valdebebas (21:00 Movistar + LaLiga). This second will be very special for Take: he will once again face those who could soon be his teammates next season. He already visited Di Stéfano as a Mallorca player in 2020 (his team lost 2-0) and, this same season, at the Estadio de la Cerámica, he played against the Whites as a Villarreal footballer, although it was only a minute (0- 0) .
