The fans of the Academy suffered many times to the former Tiger. Of great performance throughout his career, García was almost always the figure of the game when he faced Racing. In mid-2017, the goalkeeper and Avellaneda crossed paths, and he signed with the club chaired by Víctor Blanco. Despite having always been a substitute in the team, he has played several games, and was a key piece when Arias (or Musso) could not be. As for example, in the recent Avellaneda Classic, last February.
The one with the long pants renewed with Racing for another year, in June of last year. That contract is about to expire, so it is time to put cards on the table and reach an agreement between the leadership and the player. García is happy in Avellaneda, he has a great relationship with all his colleagues, and he is interested in continuing to defend the light blue and white, as in Blanco and company that the former Tiger continues in the Academy. But…
As Racing de Alma could find out, the problem is economic. What the club offers does not satisfy Javier, so they are far away in monetary terms. The 33-year-old goalkeeper, who defended the academic goal 14 times and received 10 goals, is not convinced about what Blanco offers him for his continuity. There is still time for the negotiations to come to fruition, and García continues at the club where he won two titles.
Given the possible departure of García, Gómez asks for a track in Racing
Today it was confirmed that Beccacece will not have Venezuelan goalkeeper Javier Olses. If football returned tomorrow, the former Defense and Justice coach would surely have Gabriel Arias and Gastón “Chila” Gómez. As García’s continuity is not assured at the club, the former Sampaoli assistant is aware that he may have to go out and find a third goalkeeper.
Chila Gómez, despite being a youth, already had experience in the racing arc, being a substitute for Juan Musso when Agustín Orión left. And it did not clash. He had great performances, like in the South American Cup against Corinthians. When García arrived at Racing, the Mar del Plata-born passed into a third plane, and even more when he broke his ligaments last year. However, today he is training normally, and waiting for a second chance in the team.
Everything will be resolved in the coming weeks. Racing and García have the same interests. It will depend on who gives the arm to twist first, so that the goalkeeper’s link with the club extends in time …
