Chieti Story, Preseason 2019 – 2020: And the New Players Are…
Hello friends and welcome to a new article about Chieti’s plans to attack the top spot in the Serie A this season, the season when I hope that we’ll be able to lift our first Serie A league title.
Of course, the bookies don’t seem to give us a big chance, but we finished twice on 4th and this season it’s time to go higher:
I have decided to get rid of quite a few players that I considered dead weight even though they had decent performances last season – we need better lads and that’s what we get this season Of course, the only major loss is Novak about which I’ve told you in the previous post:
The new Chieti Players
I grabbed this lad for free and I am pretty pleased with him, even though we didn’t really need a new central defender or defensive midfielder. But he was so good and free that I had to get him!
Despite his name, this lad is Italian, which mattered a lot when I purchased him since it helps with the European player registrations. And he also seems like a very good central midfielder and our next playmaker!
This lad was ruling the player charts in the Romanian league so I decided to get him, especially since he was pretty cheap. I hope he proves to be professional and able to to a great job at the club.
Our most expensive transfer ever goes to this Serbian winger: he has nice stats and is the oldest player at the club right now (yes, at just 28!), so he also comes with some invaluable experience for the team.
I had to bring in a replacement for Novak and I found this Argentinian player who also covers more positions on the playing field. He was a little expensive for my taste, but I had no other option
I also decided to bring a back-up right fullback just in case, but hopefully I won’t have to play Koenders too often.
And these are the new signings – we really didn’t need much in terms of new players initially, but were forced to bring in the right fullbacks following the board’s stupid decision to sell Novak. So hopefully we’ll do well this season!
