Alianza Lima continues with the preseason work at the Inmaculada de Jesuitas school and Carlos Bustos adjusts the pieces to ratify the title achieved last year and, above all, compete in the Copa Libertadores. However, the Argentine coach carries out the activities with an incomplete squad, since he needs a goalkeeper. But, everything indicates that that matter is already resolved.
As reported by RPP, Jonathan Medina will be the ‘1’ who will defend the three posts in Matute for this entire campaign. Be careful, in the last three seasons, the goalkeeper wore the Sport Boys shirt, although his debut was with Melgar in 2012 (he was also in the ranks of Cusco FC and Comerciantes Unidos).
Already in the previous days, Bustos had indicated that they were looking for a doorman. “The departure of Steven (Rivadeneyra) gave rise to an experienced goalkeeper, I think we have young players with a lot of projection, but they have not played a game in the Alianza goal and that is an uncertainty”, indicated in Radio Ovación.
In the absence of the official announcement, Medina will arrive at the Alejandro Villanueva stadium to occupy the space left by Rivadeneyra. Likewise, the player must fight for the position with Angelo Campos, who was immovable and won the League 1 trophy. As a reward for his good work, the goalkeeper came to be considered by Ricardo Gareca for the Peruvian team.
So far, in La Victoria they have been reinforced with Christian Ramos, Pablo Lavandeira, Darlin Leiton, Piero Vivanco and Franco Zanelatto. However, it was decided to loan the last two players: Sport Boys and Alianza Atlético, respectively. In turn, Josepmir Ballón, Hernán Barcos, Ángelo Campos and Arley Rodríguez were renewed.
The first surprise of the week
Beto Da Silva appeared this Monday in the Alianza Lima preseason. In fact, in the social networks of the blue and white club, the forward appeared trotting on the field with the rest of his teammates inside the Inmaculada school, located in the district of Surco. As you remember, the player still has a current contract with the institution.
In the content uploaded by the Victorians in their official accounts, the footballers are distributed by groups. In the first instance, Hernán Barcos, Pablo Míguez, Edgar Benítez, all champions from last season, were seen. There is also Pablo Lavandeira, a recent addition.
In that same battalion, Beto Da Silva leaves, moving on the school grounds. The attacker, who was in the ranks of César Vallejo last year, is next to Miguel Cornejo and Axel Moyano.
