Monte can bounce back from relegation – talisman Maccan

CD Montesinos talisman midfielder Maccan is predicting that the Los Montesinos, Alicante based club will bounce back from relegation after dropping out of the Valencia 1st Regional G8 in the 2018-19 season.

“I am hoping that the club can return to the Valencia 1st Regional Group 8 division at the first attempt,” Maccan exclusively told me.

CD Montesinos suffered relegation in May – after a woeful season – that put an end to two seasons in the higher echelons of regional football.

Relegation came as a huge shock to both the club and their loyal band of supporters, who had seen further progress on the cards, after winning promotion to the 1st Regional.

A summer of change is afoot at the club – with a new club President incoming in replacing outgoing Felipe Parades.

Felipe, at the helm of the Vega Baja outfit for four years, said: “My term has come to an end and a new President and committee will soon be in place.”

Felipe added: “Hopefully the club can move forward, after a season that went terribly wrong, for a number of reasons.

“It was a high, in gaining promotion two years ago, and I have faith that the club have the capacity to bounce back.”

Felipe has aired his views on attracting players to the club – with bigger financially backed clubs proving difficult to compete with.

And Maccan believes new signings are a must in the summer – if the club’s ambitions are to bear fruit.

“During the summer hopefully we can sign six or seven new players – because I think that we need them,” said Maccan.

“With the new President I think we will make the signings – and hopefully gain promotion once again,” said Maccan.
