Wisła Kraków is planning a spectacular transfer. Nearly 80 matches in LaLiga
- World Soccer Today -
Wisła Kraków may soon acquire another Spaniard. Left-back David Junca is expected to undergo a medical at the club in the last week of December. He played in LaLiga and LaLiga2 in the past.
Wisła Kraków, after falling to Fortuna 1. Liga, was supposed to fight for an immediate return to the top league. However, the facts are inexorable - Wisła is currently closer to the relegation zone than the second place, which gives a direct promotion. "White Star" takes only 10th place and loses as many as 10 points to the second Puszcza Niepołomice. Although there are still 16 rounds left until the end of the season, it looks like Wisla is still fighting for the play-offs.
To take places 3-6, the team needs reinforcements and solid ones. This is what the new sporting director of Wisła, Kiko Ramirez, a former Spanish coach, among others, is to take care of. just Wisła Kraków. AFTER hiring him and two other assistants, it was to be expected that the "White Star", as it did a few years ago under Ramirez, would become Spanish again. A few days ago, the club announced the signing of winger Alex Mula. Now it has been announced that another Spaniard will appear for the medical tests.
Kiko Ramirez works. Another Spaniard may go to Wisła Kraków
This time it's about 29-year-old left-back David Junca. The player has a CV that would not be despised even in the top league. In Spain, he represented the colors of Girona, Eibar and Celta Vigo. He played 79 matches in La Liga (zero goals and 11 assists) and 85 matches in its backroom (three goals and eight assists). He spent the last season in Girona, with which he won promotion to La Liga. Although he did not play in the play-off matches, he had previously played in 25 league and three cup matches.
Where is the catch? In the history of injury. In the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons, Junca did not play at all because of injuries. And after promotion to LaLiga, Girona resigned from his services. The result is that the Spaniard has been without a club since July. He will try to rebuild in Wisła. As long as it passes medical tests.
Interestingly, a few days ago, the president and co-owner of the club, Jarosław Królewski, posted a joint photo with Kiko Ramirez on Twitter. Both gentlemen were at the airport, and Królewski made it clear that they were going to talk to a potential left-back. Looks like it was Junca.
Wisła had previously acquired Igor Sapała, who was recently a football player for Cancer Częstochowa.
