Si Las Palmas is the second team with the fewest goals scored in the First Division It is, in part, because the good work of Álvaro Valles. A debutant in the category, Valles has put in top-notch performances this season. UD has only conceded 12 goals. That is, three more than Real Madrid, the same as Atlético or one less than Barça. Team figures with great aspirations.
But the figure and importance of Valles becomes important in statistics that speak very well of the work of the Sevillian. Las Palmas has an expected goals conceded figure of 17.4. Some indices are very far from the dozen that have fit. Parties like the one who signed at the Santiago Bernabéu or the last performance in El Sadar with two point-blank stops are just two examples.
Some performances that have not gone unnoticed in the different technical secretariats from Spain and Europe. Valleys contract ends on June 30 and has not yet renewed. It is also true that in his current contract there is a clause of automatic renewal if you play 8 more games this course.
Death of Henry Stambouli
The death of Henri Stambouli has overwhelmed the UD Las Palmas family. The Algerian was yellow coach in the 2003-04 season. An atypical course in which the Canarian club had no less than four coaches. It is true that Stambouli only sat on the bench for one game, against Algeciras.
He spent almost his entire career in Francein teams like the Rodez, AS Monaco and Olympique de Marseille. He made the leap to the bench, serving as coach of the Olympique de Marseille, FC Sion, Sedan-Ardennes, Raja Casablancaamong others, as well as the Guinea and Togo teams.
