The Bordalás era begins

Valencia starts the preseason this Wednesday without any new face in the first team and with the future of its main references pending in the market.


The Bordalás era starts in Valencia without signings or references. The only new face on the first day of testing will be that of the young Georgian goalkeeper Mamardashvili, who has arrived on loan and will have a subsidiary file. Anil Murthy and Miguel Ángel Corona have not yet closed any of the incorporations promised to Bordalás and thus the Alicante coach, like Javi Gracia a year ago, will be the main attraction in the return to work of his Valencia, a team that he wants to recover your DNA.

Over the next few days the players, by groups, will undergo medical (PCR included) and physical tests. The first to go through Paterna will be the 10 homegrown players who will carry out the first pre-season phase with the team at Oliva Nova Golf: Esquerdo, Molina, Koba, Jesús Vázquez, Fran Pérez, Hugo González, Menargues, Diego López, Alberto Marí and the aforementioned Mamardashvili. On Thursday and Friday, the rest of the players who have not been with their national teams will do so (Hugo Guillamón, although he was with the Sub'21, he will train from now on). Among other players mentioned are Rubén Sobrino and Jorge Sáenz, who are returning from their respective assignments to Cádiz and Celta.

In this way, Bordalás will not have several of those called to be its referents, although almost all of them are awaiting the market to know where they will play next year. These are the cases of Guedes, who continues to be the number 1 target in sales, Kang-In Lee, Cheryshev, Wass, Maxi Gómez, Gayà and Carlos Soler. From the first day, players whose future is also uncertain, such as Diakhaby, Jason or Jasper Cillessen, do join, although Bordalás would like to count with the Dutch goalkeeper.

Valencia, which will debut next Friday 16 against Villarreal, is tracking the market in search of reinforcements, although it does so with the handbrake set in economic terms. Lim, as happened last summer, does not authorize any disbursement until making cash or releasing payrolls beyond those of Gameiro and Mangala.

Hence, to date they have only maintained tenuous contacts like last Monday with Getafe, a meeting in which Murthy asked about Juan Iglesias and Arambarri and about Ángel Torres' predisposition to take over Jason or Cheryshev. Waiting for reinforcements, Bordalás formally assumes from today the rank of the burning nail of Valencianism.
