Coulibaly reinforces the left side

The full-back arrives free after terminating with French Le Havre and to compete with Forniés, who had taken the position after Alberto De la Bella's injury.


FC Cartagena does not want to have setbacks in the remainder of the season and has taken on the services of Yocouba Coulibaly, who joins to make up for the long-term absence of Alberto De la Bella. After the Catalan's injury, Forniés had remained as the only left-back in Luis Carrión's team, who will now again have alternatives for said demarcation.

Coulibaly, 26, was without a team after terminating his contract with Le Havre of the Second Division of France and signed with the Albinegro team until the end of the season. He trained at RC Bobo in his native Burkina Faso, from where he made the leap to European football. In his first two courses at Le Havre he played 47 games and last year he was loaned to Paris FC. In the next few days he will arrive in Cartagena to join work with his new colleagues.

Forniés has responded well

When Alberto De la Bella's dismissal was confirmed, all eyes were on Forniés. The man from Elche, who started last season in Second B, had left doubts in his few appearances this year and that also caused the sports commission to comb the market in search of a left back.

In the last two games, against CD Leganés and RCD Mallorca, Forniés has started, both at a high level. In the first, a clean sheet was left against one of the teams with the greatest offensive potential in the competition and in the visit to the leader he scored the goalkeeper, which at that time meant a tie on the scoreboard. Now he will have more competition and will fight for a position in Carrión's plans with Coulibaly.

Navas and Gallar, back

On Friday, FC Cartagena receives SD Ponferradina. For this meeting, Luis Carrión recovers two important men: Raúl Navas and Álex Gallar. The former served a penalty game in Mallorca, while the winger returns after recovering from a muscle injury that has kept him off the pitch for about a month.The negative note is the loss of Nacho Gil, who was sanctioned with two games for his expulsion against CD Leganés.
