They struggled once more to stay in the Primera Liga, but not as much as two years ago when they were buried by most of the people familiar with Spanish soccer. Gregorio Manzano was the saviour, and 'old' and well known face in Mallorca, but most important were the winter transfers. Since Jan, Mallorca changed from a mediocre team to a 'Cinderella', performing excellently at home and away.
Players In: Varela (Betis) Maxi López (Barcelona) Jordi López (Sevilla) Dorado (Sporting) Héctor (Deportivo) Players Out: Campano (Nàstic) Cortés (Getafe) Farinós Okubo (Cerezo Osaka) Tuzzio Borja (Real Madrida) Potenza Maciel Yordi BraulioTransfers assessment:
Many players left, but that was the best thing that could happen to Mallorca. The few that came are what Mallorca really needed and together with the rest of the players who are in the team, they compose a nice squad.
Mallorca have great individuals and start a new season having all the time to prepare appropriately. The team they created last January is now even better and will avoid relegation easily. Mallorca are good at counterattacks and set pieces. Position: 12-14
