beñat will be lined in emirates


The news was like an earthquake for SADP Crusaders. When hardly a week had passed since the title won by UC in Temuco, Beñat San Jose of Spain surprised everyone in the precordillera when announcing his departure from the club. Despite having the Copa Libertadores challenge, the Basque made the decision to use an exit clause to end his contract early.

After that, the coach gave an interview to Mundo Deportivo, where he explained the reasons for his departure and glimpsed what he expected of his future.

"Beyond the country and what the team is, let me move the illusion and the ambition to generate a new step in my career. May I take my work to a project that seduces me, which is ambitious in all respects" , said the former strategist of UC, who said goodbye to the fans through a sincere letter that has spread in social networks.

A few days have passed and this "ambitious" project already has a name and a destination. This is the Al-Nasr of the United Arab Emirates, a club that officially presented San José yesterday, which is now going to take the mission to take the club to a new title, something that has not happened since 2015.

Al Nasr will be Beñat's sixth team in his coaching career, as well as UA led Al-Ittihad and Al-Ettifaq from Saudi Arabia, Deportes Antofagasta and Bolívar.

As expected, the news surprised the world of Chilean baseball, which did not share the path in which the Basque said goodbye to the "Crusaders."

Rodrigo Goldberg, former UC player and now sports commentator, spoke to La Cuarta and lamented the lack of transparency of the Spaniards.

"He had every right to occupy the clause, but he's ugly the way he did." He should have been clearer in explaining, and in the end his actions spoke for themselves, "he said.

For his part, Jose Luis Villanueva did not want to dramatize much and minimized the fact. "That's the way it is, he's fulfilled the deadlines of the contract, thank you very much for the title to the people of the UC and for no more, no more," he said.
