In the cúpula go back to value if they have to award him something more than time or do borrón and new account.
In spite of that it did not have neither pre-season neither reinforcements, to the Cantabrian marked him some aims that has not fulfilled. There is some that warn that it would be necessary to leave him work and design a project to his measure, but others signal that in spite of that the staff has weakened even more, the chispazos of good game that has achieved are not sufficient and that the environment in the changing room has enturbiado with varied brush dangerous.
Although the directive backs, for the moment, to the technician, there are movements for tantear to several possible reliefs.
