The future of Asier Garitano at Leganes He is heading wildly towards a rupture that seems impossible to avoid except for a radical turn in the results of the Blue and White team, now plunged into relegation places and with a panorama of irresistible social tension. Precisely the pressure of Butarque, his critical judgment against the trainer cucumber, weighs as a fundamental argument (among others) to glimpse a horizon of uncomfortable farewells. Saying goodbye to a legend is not an easy task. But the public has already passed its sentence and its mallet of verdicts points directly to the bench occupied by that of Bergara without there being any intention to change the conspicuous animosity towards the coach.
This Sunday Butarque It became an enclosure to house a Leganés – Valladolid and also a courtroom that from minute one had as its main designated a Garitano to which the part of the stadium (there was also applause, the least) whistled while his name was chanted over the loudspeaker.
An unheard of criticism
The gesture is unheard of and unusual. Never Leganes He had judged so harshly and openly the one who is the best coach in his history. The one who got his team on First in just three seasons against the odds and then keep him among the best. But football does not understand by heart and only from a present that, for Garitano, begins to have the shape of an unstoppable roller, although he, in the press room, preferred to downplay this unbreathable atmosphere.
“I am left with the chants after 0-2. There I heard where we come from … I listen to other things, the ones behind me … but I keep those songs because that will be what will keep us going. You may like it more or less … I have to assume absolutely everything. You have to know how to live with all this. Is part of this”, He commented relatively serene, or perhaps mentalized that there is not much option to modify such a tsunami of criticism.
A growing tension
After the boo before the game, already during the match, the collective and individual criticism against the coach grew, more as the scoreboard went against and an impotence grew that, later, was primed with other members of the cucumber team.
The whistles he received Arnaiz in the change they were also striking, although probably mixed among those criticisms he had also camouflaged some slap on the wrist himself Garitano due to the delay in the change (the first relays, already 0-1, were in the 63 ‘) and because of the barely offensive of the relays: at no time was there a change of scoreboard, only variations of names in the same positions. Leganés remained 4-2-3-1 at all times.
The club, pending
Within the club this environment worries a lot. The walls of Butarque are porous to this incessant trickle of tension that, already from the 2nd match before the Burgoshas been permeating the general mood of the public, increasingly predisposed to anger before each meeting, predisposed to judge their own and criticize, not so much what has not happened yet, but the previous disappointments, which are already several.
In the box Victoria Pavon has shown public support for Garitano up to two times. In the last one, he asked for patience, but it remains to be seen if this week’s results (visit Wednesday to Alcorcón, match against Tenerife Saturday) give him room to keep his desire or if, on the contrary, he will have to take, along with the rest of the hard core of the board, some drastic decision. Meanwhile, the rest of the Leganes is aware of how complicated the moment is and that, with such tension around the team, the continuity of a legend like Asier Garitano on the bench.
