Full satisfaction. Michel Herrero fulfills the desire of his most intimate environment to continue his professional career in a historic club near his hometown, and Paco Pena tie the piece that he has been chasing since the moment he sensed that his former partner in that Hercules of Juan Carlos Mandia It was clear to him that he wanted to leave Tenerife despite having one more year on his contract there. The Valencian midfielder will be Blue and White until June 2024.
After the meeting they held on Monday in the capital of the Community, both shook hands and took it for granted that they would unite their destinies again. The review of the documentation by the representative office has taken longer than expected, but finally, on Wednesday morning, the go-ahead came for the two seasons that he has already committed to with the club where he reached his peak director as a professional: 14 goals.
► Risky bet? Míchel enters a project in which he is called to be differential, to provide added value, to stand out, but it is precisely his demarcation that is best covered in the team of Angel Rodriguez. With him, there will be four who will compete each week for the remaining place in the Leon coach’s system ahead of what, at the start of the season, seems to be a double pivot made up of Maxi Ribero and Cesar Moreno. Manu Navarro, Sandro Toscano and above all, Sergio MarcosThey have tough competition in Míchel that the coach should make healthy for the good of the group.
The footballer becomes the 15th summer reinforcement and it is wanted that he can travel with the team to Mallorca for the debut in the League
The intention of the Valencian and the technicians is that the footballer integrates into the group before undertaking trip to majorca so that he could accompany the team in the league debut this Sunday. Physically, he is at an excellent level and he can only show a lack of rhythm because since he left Tenerife he has worked on his own with a trainer.
Michel becomes the 15th summer booster. With him already inside, there is only one free senior card left, which must belong to the center-back that the technical secretariat is determined to incorporate as soon as the horizon of free agents is cleared. In addition, there are two U-23 licenses available in the first team, one will be for the goalkeeper, which is scheduled to be resolved before midnight today. Iván Martínez continues to be the main asset, the one that concentrates all the negotiating effort.
►The most desired signing. With Míchel Herrero, Hércules also guarantees the recognition of a large part of the fans who, since Peña’s interest in signing him was made public, have not stopped showing their support for him. The memory that the Valencian left in the stands in his only season as a blue and white exactly a decade ago has been enough to arouse the interest of the fans in his return despite the fact that he returns with 34 years recently completed and without ever having dropped from the Second Division. At the moment, Míchel adds in all senses, which is saying a lot at this point.
