In the absence of nine days to finish the season and the transfer of Take Kubo to Getafe, the Japanese footballer is still waiting for the moment of his explosion and this must come now. His latest performances invite optimism. Against Elche he stood out on his return to the starting team and with his team he made a great game against Argentina seasoned with two goal assists as a result of his great set-piece hitting. Precisely that very long journey of twenty-five thousand kilometers separated him from the possibility of being a starter against Osasuna, but this week he is training perfectly with the group.
Kubo arrived in Getafe in the winter market looking for the prominence that was denied him in Villarreal. So far it has not succeeded. Despite the fact that he has only been left without playing in one of the thirteen games since his arrival. He has only started five and always ended up replaced. His numbers are not brilliant, with a goal assist as a poor business card, but the footballer has not lowered his arms and his moment has come.
The casualties will condition Bordalás eleven against Cádiz on Saturday. Especially up front, where neither Cucho Hernández (he will not play again this season) nor Enes Ünal will be. The Japanese will dispute a position with Ángel, who lately seems forgotten by the technician. He’s in great shape and has regained his confidence, so with no endless travel in between, his time must have come. He only has nine days left to show at the Coliseum that he can be important in the First Division.
