The 31-year-old midfielder, about to sign for two seasons with Efesé, after ending his contract at Oviedo
A footballer for creation who can also serve for containment. That was one of the pieces that Efesé was looking for in the market, an engine for the center of the field capable of giving strength to the core, in addition to making a game. And found it in
Sergio Tejera (Barcelona, 31 years old), a player who has just finished his contract at Real Oviedo and who is finishing his arrival at the club. This
about to sign for two seasons.
The midfielder has played the last three seasons in the Carbayón team. What’s more,
has experience in both First and Second. LaLiga Santander knows her because she participated in it for three years, the first two with the Mallorca elastic band and the other with the Espanyol jacket. In total, 43 matches in the highest category of Spanish football.
As for the silver division, where he has developed most of his career, Alavés, Nástic de Tarragona and more recently Oviedo have been the clubs in which he has played, adding
230 games in the eight seasons that Second Division football has enjoyed.
Tejera, a left-hander with great ball displacement and a midfielder who looks out over the balcony of the rival area every time he has the chance, scored four goals last season, also offering three assists. In their career, they have been
20 the goals he has scored since he started his growth from Second B.
Formed in the bases of Espanyol, Tejera
He was hired by Chelsea when he was only 16 years old. The English paid 250,000 euros, enlisting him for their reserve team. There
he trained several times with José Mourinho, of whom he has once confessed that he has fond memories for the special attention he paid to it.
After living the English experience, he left on loan to Mallorca, a club that finally decided to hire him. After passing through the Balearic team, he returned to the parakeet box, where he learned, for example, from
Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine coach, currently on the Paris Saint-Germain bench, had the Barcelona player, but after the coach’s dismissal he lost prominence. With Javier Aguirre he only played five times until the end of the 2012/13 academic year. Before, in Mallorca,
Michael Laudrup or Joaquín Caparrós were other of its formators.
At Nástic, six years ago now, he began to feel important. Since then he has played practically everything. More recently, in the 2018/19 campaign, he landed in Oviedo, a team in which he coincided with Richard Boateng, recently signed by Efesé.
