Elche surprises by signing Piatti

The people of Elche had been in talks with the Argentine for weeks, who has finally agreed to join the project. He was without a team after an MLS adventure.


Surprise at Martínez Valero and not because of the match between Sevilla and Elche, but because of what happened in the offices a few minutes after the match began: Pablo Piatti is already a new Elche player. The Argentine returns to LaLiga to join the Elche discipline to provide experience and goals and will help Escribá's team to try to achieve permanence.

Piatti, who was without a team after his experience in MLS, in Toronto FC, has 294 First Division games. The attacker went through Almería, Valencia and Espanyol. In total, he scored 48 goals in the top flight. Piatti expands a lead in which Boyé, Carrillo, Pere Milla and Nino are already there. It is the second signing that Elche has incorporated after the market closes and will arrive in the city tomorrow.

"Piatti is an experienced player who comes to add"

Elche coach Fran Escribá said this afternoon that the club's new signing, Argentine Pablo Piatti, is a player who will bring experience and who comes to join the team in the final leg of the season

The club from Elche announced minutes before the match against Sevilla (2-1) the incorporation of the Argentine attacker to its squad, who was without a team and will cover one of the two federative licenses that Elche had free.

The Argentine is scheduled to arrive in Elche this Sunday and in the next few days, after passing the medical tests and those established by the sanitary protocol of the competition, he will join the work with the group under the orders of Fran Escribá.

"The news has been a joy," said Escribá, who assured that he had not made "any request" to the owner of the club, Argentine Christian Bragarnik, in the meeting they held this week.

"I already said that if there was any option to sign for me, it would be fantastic," clarified the coach, who guaranteed that Piatti, with experience in teams such as Almería, Valencia and Espanyol, "will adapt in five minutes."

The Elche coach said he knew the striker personally, whom he described as "a ten on a human level."

"He is different from everything we have and very skilled in one on one. Of all those who play outside, he is the one who has the most arrival and goal," he said.
