Alex Berenguer has become the Athletic’s top scorer this season with his seven goals in the League plus that of the Cup against Levante which allowed the lions to qualify for the final. The trajectory of the Navarrese footballer with the Asturian coach on the bench has been clearly upward. In fact He has gone from being a substitute after the change of coach to having a fixed slot in the last rojiblancas alignments.
Marcelino himself explained the reason for this change with Berenguer. “He had to adapt to playing on the right wing because his best football performance until then was always on the left or behind the striker. His virtue has been to convince himself that he could be a great player by switching to the other band.. He has earned it hard ”, explains the Athletic coach.
The reason for this band change, as clarified by the Athletic coach, was due to the fact that the left-handed wing had a lot more to choose from within the squad than the right-hander. “When we arrived we found many footballers on the left wing and not so much on the right. Berenguer is here, performs satisfactorily and is going through a great moment of form and efficiency in achieving ”.
When asked if having paid Torino ten million euros for the Navarrese can be considered a cheap or expensive price, Marcelino made it clear that “I could not say it because I am very bad for the economic valuations based on the footballer. It is the market that decides”.
