Albacete adversary Aridane

RUSTINESS, or too much food and drink, cannot excuse CD Tenerife, and coach Pep Marti knows his team must hit the ground running in 2018.

Marti must have feared the worst, after they signed off with a poor 1-1 home draw against Cadiz on 21st December, having been rescued by a last-minute goal.

But club President Concepcion was true to his word, and kept his finger off the trigger.

With no away win since August, Tenerife face two opening games away, with the pressure on. This Sunday, 7th January, they face Albacete at 3pm, and will come up against former Tenerife forward Aridane.

The old-fashioned, English-style, centre-forward won over the Santa Cruz fans, despite coming from arch-rivals Las Palmas. And he played a big part in dragging Tenerife back up to Spain’s Second Division.

When the goals dried up he left for Hong Kong, but Aridane has since returned to the Spanish League with a sprinkling of goals. You can bet he will be keen to demonstrate to Tenerife that he has some juice left in the tank.

The January transfer window is now open, and Concepcion has promised three new players to buck up his 11th-placed under-achievers. Sooner, rather than later, would be nice!
