COLLETT BACKS AGUIRRE
May 23, 2014
The president of Espanyol, Joan Collet is hoping that Javier Aguirre remains being the manager for the next season but he is aware that the Mexican also has other offers for him to choose from.
“We’re very happy with him but he needs to decide if he wants to stay, because there are other offers, other deals that his work here has earned, but I don’t really think he wants to go. I’ve little doubt that he has the enthusiasm to stay here.” Joan Collet said.
Espanyol’s goalkeeper Kiko Casilla is a summer target of Arsenal, Barcelona and Manchester United but the 27 years old shot-stopper revealed that he has no intentions of leaving the club anytime soon.
“My intention is to stay here. This club gave me so much when things were going badly, and I always had a helping hand when I needed them. Now I am happy here, enjoying myself and playing. This is where I belong.”
“I’m not at all worried. I have a year on my contract and I’ll still be here for that time and hopefully even more. My intention has always been to stay here because when I’ve been out and things didn’t go well, I’ve always had the support of the club.” Casilla said.
Barcelona are still keeping their eyes opened in the transfer market for a replacement of Victor Valdez who will be leaving the club at the end meanwhile for Manchester United, Kiko Casilla can serve as a back-up for David De Gea.
Kiko Casillas has one year remaining in his contract with Espanyol and he has already expressed his desire and ambition of concluding the contract he signed with the Spanish club some time ago and the shot-stopper has even released statements of wanting to extend his stay with Espanyol for a longer period.
