The Argentine’s injury Roncaglia and the good performance that Nacho
Vidal is offering this season for Osasuna have made the Valencian player become the master of the side
The 26-year-old defender will fulfill his eighth game in a row as a starter against Huesca this season, something he could not achieve last year when the rojillos returned to the top flight.
Vidal started the League as headline against Cádiz in the Ramón de Carranza to alternate later with Roncaglia in a key position in the gaming system that Jagoba Arrasate has been exhibiting since he arrived in Pamplona more than 1,000 days ago.
Chajarí’s defender was injured on January 27 in the Copa del Rey match between Almería and Osasuna. That day, the brave defender suffered a break of right
previous of his right leg with tendon involvement. A possible operation was considered, an option that was finally ruled out. The 34-year-old footballer works daily at the Tajonar facilities to try to come back before the end of this year, a difficult situation.
Since then, the former Valencia player has not led to surprise. The lack of competition on the wing and the recovery of his best version will mean that the fast athlete will have to dose his forces to help his team in the remaining games of the championship.
The signing of Jonas ramalho for the Navarrese team to replace the departure of Raúl Navas to Cartagena in the winter market, he came up with the idea of providing Arrasate with a versatile player to occupy the position of center-back and that of winger.
The reality is that the Basque coach has not yet made use of him and the question is whether Nacho Vidal will be able to hold the rest of the league playing every minute at the high level required to achieve the long-awaited permanence in such an important year as the Centennial.
It should be noted that the natural player from El Campello has played a leading role in 25 of the 27 matches played for the rojillos to date. Against Granada in the Nuevo Los Cármenes he was a substitute and the disputed round El Sadar could not play due to accumulation of cautions.
Osasuna faces this Thursday the penultimate session before measuring on Saturday at Huesca in El Alcoraz with the idea of leaving with victory to a stoppage for national teams that the red side will receive with open arms to be able to rest a few days before the final stretch in which he will have to take the rest.
