Super Eagles duo of Keneth Omeruo and Chidozie Awaziem will face Real Madrid later tonight even as Leganes re-echoed its motto aimed at gingering players to put in their best no matter the opposition.
“There is a sign every player sees when they walk out of the home changing room on a match day which reads: ‘El talento depende de la inspiracion, pero el esfuerzo depende de cada uno’. Talent depends on inspiration, but effort depends on everyone”
The club in what could pass for stock taking noted that it has gone through a lot changes from a period of financial constraints to the present where it is not only competing favourably in the La Liga but is able to pay its bills with increasing fan base.
A lot has changed in Butarque, the changing rooms have had a total makeover, the number of VIP boxes has increased ten-fold and the teams Leganes take on these days are known across the world.
Despite being seen as under dogs in comparison with Real Madrid, Leganes established in 1928 believe they stand a chance of earning a good outing at the Benebeau banking on the Cucumber feeling
“So it is excitement, rather than fear, that fills fans and players alike ahead of their latest dual with Real. That, after all, is sentimiento pepinero – the cucumber feeling”
Leganes go into the match fresh from a lone goal defeat of Mallorca at the Estadio Municipal de Butarqu. Leganes continues to struggle on the La liga log with just five points to show in ten matches played so far.
