Despite the fact that much was said about his possible departure from Celta Vigo in this pass market, it seems to indicate that Renato Tapia is regaining the trust of Edward Coudet. And it is that on the morning of this Saturday, the coach of the Spanish team announced the list of summoned for the 26th edition of the ‘Memorial Quinocho’, a tournament played by the ‘Celtistas’ since 1995.

The Peruvian international will be part of the squad that will play this Saturday from 1:00 in the afternoon (Peruvian time). The match will be against Al-Shabad, one of the most popular clubs in Saudi Arabia, and will take place at the legendary Balaídos stadium.

Renato Tapia will face his first official match this season with Celta de Vigo. Despite being a match that is part of the preseason, this will serve as a test for their debut in LaLiga Santander, in which they will face a complicated Espanyol next Saturday, August 13 from 10:00 am (Peruvian time).

It is necessary to mention that the ’14’ of the ‘Celtistas’ is one of the most acclaimed by the fans of the Coudet squad. A few days ago, the midfielder was chosen by the fans of the Spanish club, so that he could upload to his social networks and show how he looks with the new clothing, the same one that they will wear this semester.

Thinking about LaLiga

At the end of July, the Celta de Vigo team traveled together with Renato Tapia for the tour of America, where they faced Pumas UNAM and San José Earthquakes, in warm-up friendlies. For this opportunity, ‘Chacho’ Coudet used the Peruvian as a central defender, since ‘Cabezón’ liked him quite a bit.

This would be a new strategy to continue measuring the potential of the Peruvian, since in the last year he went from being the undisputed starter to a spare part. For this reason, he would not be surprised if he returns to the leading role, this time, from a new position, but with the same slogan of going out to win.
