Perhaps Deportivo aren’t living a comfortable situation at Primera División, but Fabricio Agosto is living the best moment on his career. He has played four games and helped to clinch three clean sheets.

Fabricio Agosto will be 27 the last day of this year, so he isn’t a rookie anymore, but the true is that the goalkeeper has only played a handful number of matches at the elite of Spanish football, more specifically 24 before starting this season.

 Forced to debut at Depor when he was 20 due to the conflict Munúa-Aouate (6 games on the season 2007/08), he returned to play at Primera until 2010. He just played one game with Real Valladolid as he was covering the spot of Justo Villar. From there he moved to Real Betis and after a promising end on the season 2011/12 (15 matches) he only made two appearances one year later.

With the Andalusian outfit going to Segunda he surprisingly sealed a return to Depor despite a previous legal dispute with the Galician club. It seemed that his role was secondary as he was the “backup” of German Lux on last season, but now a great opportunity has knocked at his door.

The Argentine man hasn’t lived a great moment and coach Víctor Fernández decided to make a change starting on the home meeting against Valencia CF, and the modification turned to work out as the Canarian goalie has been one of the best players of Depor within the last four games.

He didn’t have too much work before the Valencians, but one week later was the key to hold on a suffered 0-0 draw visiting RCD Espanyol, then the sparkle hosting Getafe CF was redeemed with another great performance visiting Córdoba CF, another goalless draw with six saves, including blocking a penalty.

The summary is to clinch three clean sheets in four games and to be included two times in the best starting eleven of la liga (whoscored.com). Last year Fabricio replaced Lux in a similar situation and Fernando Vázquez did the same as the Canarian man played five straight games at Segunda (between matchday 23 & 27). However Lux returned to the starting position for the end of the season, this time it still to be seen if Víctor will do the same or if Fabricio will extend the best moment on his career.

Fabricio talked to reporters and admitted that this is his best moment, “I’m feeling fine. The idea is to have a keeper feeling confident. My plan has been of transmitting secureness to the team mates, just like a defender or a striker transmit secureness to the rest. I believe all of us must do our best, because it transmits positive energies to the rest. “

The keeper also said to be satisfied for the three clean sheets within the last four games, “I believe the team is working fine. I believe we demonstrated it during the last game after spending one hour playing with one less man. I believe the sacrifice done was superhuman and we added an important point in Córdoba.”

Finally, he also showed his satisfaction for been the current starting goalie, “I try to do my best in order to help the team. We all are here for one purpose: to clinch the permanence and help the team. I just try to be in the better possible conditions for the weekends. We are on that and hope that the team could continue improving.”
