A model team, manufactured by German coach Bernd Schuster. Getafe won everyone’s admiration as they play nice attacking soccer. They are good at home and away too.
Players In: Manu del Moral (Atlético) Sousa (Valladolid) Alexis (Málaga) Nacho (Málaga) Casquero (Racing) Cortés (Mallorca) Albín (Nacional) Abbondanzieri (Boca Juniors) Lucas Licht (Gimnasia de la Plata) Players Out: Pernía (Atlético) Craioveanu (retirado) Matellán Gavilán (Valencia) Calatayud Riki (Deportivo) Rivas (R. Sociedad) Nano (Cádiz)Transfers assessment:
Important players like Pernía, Riki, and Rivas left, but those who arrived are much better. Casquero, Sousa, Nacho, Albín are very good and some of them are experienced midfielders. Argentinean Lucas Licht, will replace Pernia and he has something to him (scoring ability). Cortés and Alexis will help a lot in defence, but the greatest signing was Boca Juniors' and Argentina international keeper Roberto Abbondanzieri. Excellent summer moves by Getafe.
Getafe will be a dangerous rival for any team. They will avoid relegation easily and will play freely so whatever they achieve will be good. Many are sceptical they can take a top 7 spot, but if they believe it, they can do it.
