Vitolo’s time

At Athletic, Victor Machín “Vitolo” he missed 24 official games due to injury. At Getafe, where he arrived on loan this summer by the rojiblanco club, his time in the infirmary has left him without playing in seven of the thirteen games that have been played so far. Starting this Sunday, Vitolo will have an opportunity to start from scratch and show his best side again.

Vitolo’s arrival at Getafe this summer on loan from Atlético de Madrid was pleasant news for the fans of the southern Madrid team. Accustomed to granite football from Jose Bordalás In the past seasons, the acquisition of a man with fine footing and overflowing deluded the Azulona fans.

Nevertheless, Vitolo did not start his new adventure on the right foot. In recent seasons, injuries have hampered his performance. And, in Getafe, he started on the wrong foot. A muscular ailment prevented him from facing Barcelona on the third day. Although he reappeared to play half an hour against Elche and 77 minutes against Rayo Vallecano, then he relapsed and did not play another seven Getafe games.

Vitolo returned in a testimonial way eleven days ago. In La Cerámica, against Villarreal, he played eight minutes after replacing the Uruguayan Mathías Olivera. Between his departure and his return to the pitch, Getafe changed coach (Míchel by Quique Sánchez Flores), but the situation of his team is the same: he occupies the last position.

After the Villarreal game, Vitolo has had ten days to catch up. A mini preseason to complete your first sensations on the pitch. He has already seen the light at the end of the tunnel in La Cerámica and now he wants to rub the magic lamp to illuminate the change of Getafe, which needs the genius of the Canarian player to turn around his bad situation.

Vitolo, if he is fit and at a good time, can contribute talent translated into goals, vision of the game, pause, overflow and precision. In his best course, in 2012/13 in the ranks of Unión Deportiva Las Palmas, he scored fifteen goals. In Sevilla, he credited up to nine and six assists in 2014/15. His record for goal passes was given a year later, with twelve.

With those numbers he was international, but later, in his time at Atlético de Madrid (2017-2021) he gradually deflated until leaving his statistics of goals and assists in the past course to zero. His transfer to Getafe had to serve as a redemption for Vitolo, who could start his particular comeback next Sunday against Cádiz.

A change in profile

Quique Sánchez Flores inherited many of the most combative players of the era Bordalás. Nemanja Maksimovic, Mauro Arambarri, Damián Suárez, Allan Nyom, David Timor or Djené Dakonam These are just some of the names that underpinned the previous technician’s project. The current one, he found few more technical players: Carles Aleñá, Jakub Jankto and Vitolo.

Of the three, the first does not find its best moment. The second, a fine left-handed winger, was injured early in the season. And the third can finally play. And, while recovering Vitolo, Quique had to make the odd eleven in which up to four midfielders agreed. There weren’t many other options with his injured wing players.

However, this weekend, one of them is making a strong comeback. Vitolo, could enter for the first time in a lineup of Quique Sánchez Flores, that he will have an option to fill the right wing with fantasy, something that Getafe has lacked for some time and that the Canarian player does not lack, who needs to find himself and does not have much time. Without a doubt, it is Vitolo’s time.
