first_imgPacheta starts the new year with clear ideas. The coach of Elche CF has assured, in his first public appearance after the holidays, that he continues to ask 2020 for “permanence”, but has warned that “If the team achieves it soon, everyone will be happy and we will quickly change the objective“to start looking, then, to promotion promotion positions to First Division.The technical franjiverde has referred to the winter market, which is already open. The first message he has confirmed is that he doesn’t want to have too many movements in his locker room: “I would not like anyone to leave. I neither want nor desire many signings; only the two positions that are being talked about (central and front) and if there is any more demarcation to cover, for that we have the youth and the subsidiary. “ Pacheta has insisted on three occasions during his speech that he does not want any component of the workforce to come out, with special mention for Tekio, which is intended by Cartagena, leader of Group IV of the Second Division. His stance is firm: “In the second round can happen a thousand stories conditioned by personal or work situations. I don’t want more outings because the team is working well and I want it to stay that way. “The coach of Elche has begun his press conference taking the floor to thank “the samples of love” received after learning of the recent death of his mother. “I want to thank everyone, especially on behalf of my father“, he pointed out. For the staff he has also had words of praise because after being absent in three work sessions he has had”exemplary behavior“.Elche will premiere the year in official competition this Saturday, starting at 8:00 p.m., in front of SD Huesca. The ilicitanos are eighth, with 31 points, just one in the playoff and four of their next opponent. In the first leg, the Oscenses passed over the franjiverdes (2-0), but Pacheta warns that this time “think they are going to run“to the Aragonese team.”In El Alcoraz we did not play a good game, although it is also true that we are now at a different time than the first round“, has said.Claudio Medina is the only casualty confirmed by injury while Nino will be recovered from his injury in the right sole and can play. Footballers who have dragged discomfort as Josan, Iván Sánchez and Juan Cruz They are in perfect condition and everything indicates that they will be in the first game of the year 2020. The doubt in this month of January will be whether the new owner, Christian Bragarnik, will bet on players in his portfolio or leave freedom for Nico Rodríguez’s sports management to move freely in the market.
