Toni Munoz, Getafe’s sporting director, said today that his team were missing at least three of four players in order to truly strengthen.
Describing the club’s sporting policy, Munoz spoke of their wish to combine young talent with experienced veterans to make for a more competitive squad.
Several players have been linked to Getafe and the sporting director sought to address a few rumours. On the topic of Pedro Leon, Munoz said that their plan is to simply pause and wait to see what happens whilst the transfer of Ruben Perez has not been ruled out.
Speaking on the latest player to arrive at Getafe, Munoz described the transfer of Miguel Marcos Madera ‘Michel’ as “a great occurrence for the club” . The player himself has come out to explain his decision to join the Madrid team reiterating his faith in the project and his belief that Getafe “have always been a big club”.
Having played for Birmingham City, the English club that bought him in January 2010, the player was sent out on loan to AEK Athens a year later due to limited playing time in England.
Sold to Getafe for an undisclosed fee, the player told reporters: “The project is very good and that convinced me to come, plus I felt like returning to my country to enjoy the best league in the world.”
