Villarreal is looking for a centerback

New coach Escribá has said N’Diaye is better suited for defensive midfield than centerback, so we are looking for another CB as the transfer deadline nears. Rumors still include Benfica’s Jardel, but he suffered a muscle injury so probably not; Costa Rican international Giancarlo Gonzalez, now at Palermo; and probably others.

N’Diaye was Marcelino’s idea—and to be fair the coach was pretty successful at coaching inexperienced center backs and making them damned good—but with Marce gone, N’Diaye’s future looks to be in the midfield. He is lacking confidence at the moment and El Madrigal didnt help with the whistling on Sunday when he came in.
