The winter market is no longer an emergency for Hercules as it did last season with the team struggling to avoid relegation. The great work done last summer with the creation of a wide and quality squad has paid off on the pitch with the team in second position and with good feelings. Not even bad luck with injuries to important players has diminished the performance of Hercules, something that would have been totally unimaginable in another time.
Without vital need to go to the winter market, the great reinforcement for 2021 would be the recovery of injured players. Benja, Raúl, Erice and Armando must be ready to return to the team in the first game next year, on the 10th against Nucía. “Toro” Acuña will not be there yet, and a long-term injury left him out of the team again in the game against Atlético Levante.
The Hercules will only go to the winter market -open from January 4 to February 1, both included-, if a player confirms that he wants to leave and the favorable conditions are given for it, that is, margin of reaction is allowed to the sports management Blue and White, who has seen replacement options in all lines as is his obligation at this time of the season.
Benja, who has not yet been able to debut this season, must undoubtedly be one of the great reinforcements of Hercules. Already recovered from his injury, he is eager to help the team and partially make up for the absence of Acuña. The Catalan striker claims to be already “one hundred percent” and ready to “give everything” to be able to finish the course well. The Barcelona player has been particularly saddened by the two consecutive injuries to his partner at the top of the attack, Javier Acuña, whom he praised for what he transmits on the field, although he specified that “there is no essential player” in the current squad.
The striker, who ends his contract on June 30, indicated that he has the “thorn in the head” of the poor performance offered by the team last season and ensures that, in this, the priority and “most real” objective of the club is “to remain between the first three to guarantee the team’s presence in the Pro League (which will bring together 40 clubs in the new third category of Spanish football next year) ».
The competition does not return until January 10, Sunday. That day, at twelve in the morning, Hercules receives La Nucía. If the Generalitat does not issue a sanitary counter-order, it will be the first with the public in the stands since last October 25. Entries will be by lottery and only for users of the Compromiso card.
Cubillo has summoned all his players on December 28, at 10 in the morning, at the stadium to start the post-vacation physical controls.
The Blue and Whites will play a friendly match against a team of the same category for seven days before returning to the competition to regain their competitive pulse, test the recovery of injured footballers and calibrate their fitness after more than a month unemployed in all cases. .
