Yangel Herrera is back, and in an unbeatable setting. ANDhe Venezuelan midfielder for Espanyol has returned to play a full match after more than two months without being able to do so, as a result of a succession of inconveniences that were preventing him from having continuity until now.
Herrera’s participation in the tie harvested in the derby It’s very important. The defensive solidity, the offensive resources, and the constant work of supports and aids It was essential to forge a parakeet comeback that could not be consecrated due to the goal of Luuk de Jong on the horn, and that certified the final 2-2. Yangel Herrera already made his comeback in the final minutes of his team’s match against Athletic Club, but It was against Barça where he finally regained ownership.
Yangel has not been able to be with the red wine in recent commitments due to these inconveniences, but it is without a doubt one of the fundamental pieces for the generational change of the national team. The midfielder is on loan from Manchester Cityone of the institutions that brings together the greatest soccer talent, which is a compliment and a challenge at the same time for the potential of a Herrera who It is being a fundamental piece of all the clubs through which it passes.
One of the biggest features of Herrera’s game this season is the ability to cover the field and participate in all areas of the green, and this is what its heat map shows. The numbers of the season are not the most striking, the Venezuelan records 1 goal and 1 assist in 11 games. The virtue of the 23-year-old player is silent work: his almost 7 recoveries per game and his 84% of completed passes support this.
With more than half a season disputed, Espanyol sails through a quiet area of the table. The parrots want to maintain that status and establish themselves as a top team this season, an achievement for which the participation of the red wine player seems fundamental, that if he manages to find regularity in his minutes it can be a very important argument when it comes to seeing growth in a project with big names in the future.
