After two draws in the first two days, in La Rosaleda against his previous team, Mirandés (0-0), and in the field of Ibiza (2-2), Genaró considered that the competition in Segunda “is very close and any The team can paint your face if you don’t give one hundred percent. “
Genaro stressed that Malaga faces “an exciting, exciting year”, and that the competition will dictate whether they can be “higher” in the table, although he made it clear that they “want to achieve important things.”
At the press conference, the sports director of the Malaguista club, Manolo Gaspar, acknowledged that the possibility of signing Villarreal striker Javier Ontiveros is “an almost impossible mission” and that there are “very few options” to re-fish him three years after his transfer, because “he is an overrated player”.
“We are not going to throw the house out the window for anyone,” said the Malaga official, who has increased the salary limit imposed by LaLiga to about six million euros, although he clarified that this does not mean that “he has to spend it all “.
He added that they are “completing a compensated squad, with level players”, and admitted that they have “several options” in their portfolio to try to incorporate a striker, although they would only make an effort to hire him “if he improves” the team or has “a profile. different “from the attackers they already have.
