Cristian Ganea To Return To Athletic As Viitorul Loan Expires
Cristian hasn’t been part of Athletic’s plans since Gaizka Garitano took over as coach. The Romanian was regularly left out of the team all season and eventually agreed to return to his former club, Viitorul Constanta, on loan at the end of the January transfer window in order to have minutes. Soon the 28-year-old will be back in Bilbao with hopes of finally earn his place at San Mamés.
On Tuesday Ganea’s loan agreement will expire and he will return to Athletic. The club has announced that Ganea will rejoin the team in training on Monday which means he will be available for the final four games of the season.
Time is running out for Ganea to solidify his future with the club. With just one year left on his contract Cristian Ganea must prove that he deserves a place in the team in the months ahead or else his career with Athletic may soon come to an end.
Athletic’s other players on loan – Peru Nolaskoain, Iñigo Vicente, and Andoni López – will finish the season with their respective clubs in the second division.
