Javi Pereria already serves as Levante’s new coach. Just landed from China, the Extremaduran technician he conducted his first training session this Wednesday afternoon in the sports city of Buñol and assured that he was “responsible” for the complicated situation that the team is experiencing but calm because it is something that he has chosen
“I am responsible for the challenge that it is, but it is something that I have chosen and I am looking forward to starting and be in contact with the green and with the players, ”he said in statements to the club’s media, after the entity did not want him to speak to the media upon arrival at Manises airport.
Pereira took over from Agustín Izquierdo and Pedro López, two of his assistants, who have been in charge of directing the team at the start of the week. He was seen to be energetic, correcting and encouraging his new players with great vigor.
Also this wednesday fitness trainer Gary Hall debuted, who has been with him since they met in the Premier League. “It’s not just me, I bring a very professional staff,” he said.
But for Pereira the sensation is not entirely new because during two campaigns he was the assistant of Juan Ignacio Martínez in front of what was the best Levante in history.
“The feeling is very good, I have found myself at home, with people who have been working here for a long time. It is a very family club and I am very happy to be here ”, he pointed.
The coach asked the fans to push the team for its debut against Getafe. “That they support us, they always have and these players have earned the credit. On Saturday we can fill the field, we need a push, we are going to prepare the game and we are going for the three points ”, he assured.
Of course, for this appointment he will not be able to count on all his players. At known injuries of Vukcevic and Jose Campaña has now joined the Jose Postigo, who suffers a muscle injuryr on the left soleus. The only good news is that I could get Roberto Soldado back, with which his predecessor, Paco López, could hardly count.
