Transfer news


12 Jul 2006
Yesterday Iv�n S�nchez 'Riki' was presented to the fans. The Madrilian striker is the most expensive signing so far (�4.6 million) and expressed his happiness at joining Depor, a team that in his words will be fighting in the top spots of La Liga. The next presentation will be the one of Juan Rodr�guez, the Andalucian midfielder who will be presented this afternoon (20h15).

During the presentation, Riki explained the reasons why he joined Depor.  "I chose Deportivo because it is one of the biggest clubs and we will be fighting for a European spot, where we deserve to be." The Madrilian striker gave his opinion about the amount of money Depor spent on him. "If they paid that much for me, I guess that's what I am worth. I will try to demonstrate that on the pitch while I'm here."

Riki also admitted that he hasn't talked with Caparr�s yet, but he explained the positions in which he is able to play. "I started in Getafe playing on the left wing; later Schuster put me in the striking zone. I felt comfortable performing in any of these positions.  After all, the important thing is to participate and help the squad."

Today, the Andalucian midfielder will be introduced to the fans (20h15). It will be the fifth presentation after the ones of Bodipo, Cristian, Lopo and Riki. For the moment, Estoyanoff, Barrag�n and Pablo Alvarez are waiting to know the date of their presentations, which will occur in the next few days.

Juan Rodr�guez comes from M�laga FC.  His contract ended in June and he has signed a five-year contract with Lendoiro. The midfielder will go through medical exams tomorrow morning, and will join Caparr�s' team on Friday.
