"The squad is still incomplete, but full of illusion"

The Tenerife coach was satisfied with these first days of preseason. He regretted the injury of Javi Alonso, although he said that he is a "mentally strong" player


Two weeks into the preseason, Luis Miguel Ramis was satisfied with what he has. ”I see a lot of desire. Although we have many players from the subsidiary, the squad is incomplete in terms of footballers, but full of enthusiasm ”, the Tenerife coach acknowledged in the official club media.

“Now”, he continued, “there are two weeks of adjustment, incorporating tasks and players who arrive booked or who are recovering from COVID and discomfort. We must repeat concepts this preseason, but for now, except for Javi Alonso's injury, which is a major setback, the rest is going as we think ”, said the mister.

With regard to the setback of the midfielder, he stressed that they are actions that are usually given. “It was in the third training session of the preseason in a fortuitous action, in competitive football. He is a mentally strong player, he will undergo surgery next week and he will surely recover and return with us. ”

The Tarragona native also referred to the contribution of the youth squad. "Players in training must be monitored more closely than we could last year, which was difficult due to our needs, context and obligations," he explained.

“We had to focus on the first team”, he clarified “and in these first training sessions we have many players from the reserve team and they will travel to Pinatar to train well and join the collective idea. They want to show that they have grown and can adapt to a Second Division that demands a lot ”, he commented.

Regarding the next days in Pinatar Arena, Ramis said that it will be an important work week, to establish a base work. “The incorporations of players make you modify some training sessions so that they all join the same message. I have found everyone receptive, with a good disposition ", he admitted.

The Tenerife squad had planned to play a game against the subsidiary this Saturday at the Ciudad Deportiva, but one B player tested positive and it was preferred to suspend him so one more training session was held at the El Mundialito facilities.
