The involvement of the Spanish coach and the list in the administration. How and why the former coach of Piraeus recommended players to Piraeus, who stand out and the exceptional cases that will make the difference in Greece.
The good relationship that Mitchell maintains with Olympiacos has recently been confirmed again, according to information from sportdog, as the Spanish coach has never ceased to have an open channel of communication with Piraeus as well. But also with all the groups he has worked with.
Obviously a sacking or resignation can be a rift in a manager’s relationship with a club, but the Spaniard is a top footballing figure and it is no accident that he has so many friends in the field and few enemies.
In the contact he had with people from the environment of Olympiakos, after the agreement with his new team in Saudi Arabia, Al Kasidiya, he informed that there is very good material in its roster. As it is a team that is in the second division of the league, but has a clear goal of moving up to the big division of the league.
Don’t be too quick to say that Piraeus can’t find material to interest them on the roster of a team in the second division of Saudi Arabia, as Al Kassidiyyah is a club that has emerged to move up to the top flight and wedge itself into the top 5.
Typically, that is, it gives money that the big ones also give and attracts notable footballers, as they offer them a great professional/financial incentive. Mitchell found the same motivation to go to the second division of Saudi Arabia, but also his predecessor in the team, Robbie Fowler – Veteran striker of Liverpool!
Which players are on Cassidyya’s roster who could employ Olympiacos and get a first-hand update on their progress through Mitchell? Let’s start from back to front:
Joel Robles: Spanish international goalkeeper (with the U21s), with spells at Atletico Madrid, Rayo Vallecano, Betis, Wigan, Everton, Leeds, 33, out of contract next summer. Keep his case in the back of your mind, for more reasons than one.
Alvaro Gonzalez: International Spanish stopper (also with the U21), with spells at Zaragoza, Espanyol, Villarreal, Marseille and Al Nasr. At 33 years old, he is a starter this year and his contract ends in the summer of 2024. It is not just a coincidence that his market value is 2.2 million euros. And let’s keep this case at the back of our minds for more than one reason.
Alexander Hack: German stopper, left-footed, 30 years old, who under conditions can also play as a defensive midfielder, international with the U20 of Germany and with a long career in Mainz. And his own market value is at 2.2 million euros, but he has a contract until 2025.
Max Power: Huff, 30, first-team player, with spells at Wigan and Sunderland, plays in positions 6 and 8 (but also at right-back) and is out of contract in the summer of 2024.
Luciano Vietto: International Argentinian-Italian striker, with a huge career in Spain, in Atlético Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla and Villarreal – Antonio Cordon is the man who brought him to Europe in the summer of 2014. The market value had reached 20 million. euros (he is now almost at 2.5 million euros!), he is 29 years old with a contract that expires in the summer of 2024.
Baget Diane: International Senegalese striker, with a spell at Juventus, Galatasaray, Bruges, Ajaccio, West Brom, whom Jose Botto wanted last summer for Nelson Oliveira’s position at PAOK. Finally the Portuguese technical director had left Dikefalos, Diane’s case had not progressed, and he had signed a contract with Cassidilla until 2025. Last season he had scored 25 goals in Turkey and had everyone talking. This year he already has 3 in 7 matches.
Andre Carrillo: Tenure at Sporting Lisbon, Benfica, Watford, Al Hilal. At the age of 32, he is an international 96 times with Peru, attacking midfielder and right winger, with a market value of 2 million euros. He is also an exceptional case.
