He arrived two years ago with the star transfer poster and the most expensive in the club’s history at the time, but nothing could be further from the truth. So far Matías Vargas’ passage through Espanyol has had more shadows than lightsDespite the talent that he treasures and the one that the club continues without giving up, his situation cannot continue like this. In this way, and as the companions of ‘La Grada’ point out, the Argentine assumes that he will have to leave on loan not to live another year condemned to ostracism.
Espanyol does not want to get rid of him. He has a contract until 2024 and he is not resigned in his attempt to make the big bet that was made at the time go well. However, none of the coaches who have had the first team over the last two years have relied on him much.
His profile is very specific. When it shines the most is exerting the extreme left in a system with three attackers but that scheme is hardly used in the RCDE Stadium. Without her fetish position she does not perform the same, even though in certain matches he has complied with note. See the meeting in El Toralín at the end of last season.
With Vicente Moreno it started having a little more prominence but at the end of 2020 it was already downhill and without brakes. Only the final stretch, with the ascent in the pocket, reappeared on the scene. 621 minutes spread over 21 league games and three Cup starts was his little baggage.
To make matters worse, his little presence has led him to run out of the Olympic Games, the showcase that Espanyol relied on for the ‘Monito’ to revalue. A way out is sought for him and he accepts it. The fact that this July I get Spanish nationality will help so that they do not occupy one of the precious non-community places.
