Villarreal CF round-up 07.01.19
 
Dear all,

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a great festive period.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks since I last updated you, as we move into 2019.

First of all, the first team has been involved in two matches, first of all a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid last week, thanks to two goals from Santi Cazorla. Him thriving after his injury is bringing so much joy not to just us here in Vila-real, but football fans around the world. You can read the match report for that here:https://www.villarrealcf.es/en/news/item/22920-a-great-point-after-a-cazorla-brace-2-2.

That result led to a great article on ESPN about Cazorla, which is well worth reading:http://www.espn.co.uk/soccer/spanish-primera-division/15/blog/post/3743116/santi-cazorla-shows-real-madrid-spain-arsenal-that-hes-still-got-the-magic-at-villarreal.

Yesterday, Luis García kept up his unbeaten run since replacing Javi Calleja, with a 0-0 draw at a difficult ground to visit, Ipurúa, home of Eibar. Once again it was an impressive performance from goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo, which has led to more calls for him to be called up to the Spain national side. You can read the match report from the game against Eibar here:https://www.villarrealcf.es/en/news/item/22940-a-hard-earned-point-at-ipurua-0-0.

That match also saw our right-back Mario Gaspar make history. He’s now made the third-most appearances in Yellow Submarine history, with only club legends Bruno Soriano and Marcos Senna ahead of him. You can read more about that here:https://www.villarrealcf.es/en/news/item/22950-mario-gaspar-steps-up-to-the-podium.

There have also been a few changes to the first-team squad. Nicola Sansone has joined Bologna on loan for the rest of the season, while Manuel Iturra and the club mutually agreed to end his contract. We also in the last hour announced the signing of midfielder Vicente Iborra from Leicester City in England. You can find out more about our new signing here:https://www.villarrealcf.es/en/news/item/22959-iborraisyellow.

Moving away from the first team, the U23s (Villarreal B) are flying, and are currently top of their league. They beat Badalona 1-0 at the weekend thanks to a Mario González goal. More on that here:https://www.villarrealcf.es/en/news/item/22944-villarreal-b-head-to-the-top-of-the-table-1-0.

And over the New Year period, we looked back at some of our academy’s impressive achievements in 2018, from Aixa Salvador’s Women’s U17 World Cup triumph, to our record-breaking U14 side. Take a look at our top ten moments here:https://www.villarrealcf.es/en/news/item/22956-the-yellows-academy-s-best-moments-of-2018.

And finally, as always, here are today’s press clippings in Spanish:https://www.villarrealcf.es/dossier/2019/01%20Enero/Dossier%20de%20prensa%2007.01.19.pdf.
