As soon as the club completed the exit of Bruno Gama the administrators approved both signings and both players arrived on Monday.

On Tuesday’s morning both were already training with the first team, the goalkeeper completed the full session, but the Portuguese defender just part of it as he was traveling by car and arrived until a couple of hours before the session. In the afternoon both men were presented at Plaza de Pontevedra.

The return of Fabricio and his past relation with Deportivo focused the attention of reporters, the keeper explained why he left the club, “I really needed to play and I thought that I wouldn’t going to have minutes with Aranzubia on here.” Meanwhile, president Lendoiro explained why the case ended in a courthouse, “I was defending the rights of the club, and now I believe I did the same. He’s a good keeper and has signed for us. I am not a rancorous person. It is a sin of youth and must be understood. He came too young from Vecindario and now returns with much more experience.”

Then the keeper said that, “Now I am much more mature, with a longer career, because I have competed at Primera División and have radically changed. I even have beard [he laughed] When they told me about the interest of Depor, then I know that we would have to wait until the exits were completed and the wait was long. It was agonic and I had to say no to other clubs, but I’m content for been here, to return home.”

Meanwhile, Luisinho said that, “I was happy to sign for Deportivo and hope to fulfill the three years and even to play more time on here. This is a big club, as anybody knows, and the references were always good. I was pleased when Deportivo presented an offer and I am willing to do a great job.” He also explained that he can also play as a left winger.
