Malaysia or Bust? - The A-League where are they now thread


#1

Adelaide flop Sergi “Not Pep” Guardiola has just completed a €5m transfer from 2nd tier Cordoba to Real Valladolid in La Liga.

Real Valladolid have clearly fallen a long way.

But still have money to burn apparently.
In my OP I said that he transferred from Cordoba. They owned him but he was on loan at Getafe in La Liga this season where he made it onto the pitch 6 times for a total of 0 goals in 255 minutes.
I checked the table and Valladolid are 13th, 5pts clear of the relegation zone. An extra 5pts would see them 7th. Scoring goals appears to be their biggest issue, 19 in 21 games, only bottom placed Huesca have a worse record.
How they came to the conclusion that a striker who scores a goal every 2.5 games over his career and couldn’t get a game, let alone a goal, for a team in the same league beats me.
