The team worked again on Tuesday during a double session, Guardado, Filipe, Omar Bravo joined the group after spending the holiday season in America. Mista couldn’t complete the sessions due to his injury case, while Verd?? talked about the future.

Deportivo continued on Tuesday preparing the clash against Getafe (Sunday 21h00 CET), the training was divided in two sessions in which the level was more intense. Guardado, Filipe and Omar Bravo joined the team after missing Monday’s training, the three of them had permission to arrive one day later than their team mates, but they will have to complete an extra training session during Wednesday’s morning, this in order to pass some medical tests. Who has arrived to La Coru?±a yet is Gustavo Mun??a, the Uruguayan keeper still have permission to stay in his country and will join the group until the next week.

The novelty on Tuesday was that Mista wasn’t part of the group due to his abductor injury, the Murcian attacker is a big doubt for Sunday’s game due to this reason. Another player that didn’t complete the sessions was Joan Verd??, the Catalan suffered a problem in one of his knees during the friendly game between Catalonia and Colombia, but his case isn’t serious and he should be available for the match at the Alfonso P?©rez coliseum.

Verd?? himself talked later at the press room and analysed his situations after the rumours that were linking him with a move to Espanyol or Valencia, �Deportivo was the team that allowed my debut at Primera Divisi??n, just when nobody else allowed it and I will always have in mind this. But for the moment the subject has been managed by my agent and he will tell me when he has to tell me something. Right now I don’t want to talk about this until the moment to announce something arrives.�

Later the ex-Barcelona midfielder analysed Sunday’s rival, Getafe, �It’s a tough team with very good players, a rival that can harm you at any moment. These three points are very important, because they can give us confidence in order to face the rest of the month.�

Returning to the subject of Verd??’s future, his agent M??gico D?­az talked with Sportpaper AS and analysed the situation of his renewal, "We had a first approach with Lendoiro, we didn't reach an agreement, but it's normal. The priority for Verd?? is Deportivo. Lendoiro has valued Verd?? in a certain amount, but if other clubs offer the double... If the differences are huge, evidently we won't have any agreement, but the player is content and is difficult to start from zero at any other place." The agent said.
