Who is David Raya, the coach’s latest ‘Luisenricada’?

Luis Enrique Martinez He is a curious, proud and very stubborn guy. His lists always have to bring some surprise that leave no one indifferent and this time he has done it again. The new bombshell in this call for March occurs in the goal. Lucho leaves out a David De Gea who is signing his best season in a long time and takes David Raya.

Who is David Ray?

A young 26-year-old Catalan goalkeeper who has made a career in England after leaving the Cornellá youth academy. In youth he went to the Blackburn Rovers academy. There they saw ways and they signed his first professional contract back in 2014. After a loan to Southport, he returned to Blackburn where he stood out until 2019 when he was transferred to Brentford, his current team, for 3 million euros.

Nominated for goalkeeper of the year

It happened during the 19/20 season at the London Football Awards 2020. This same season, Raya suffered a serious injury to his left knee when he broke his anterior cruciate. Five months KO Already recovered, Luis Enrique decides to bet on him.

Raya is a goalkeeper who stands out for his sobriety in the aerial game. Good reflexes, his best quality is his excellent footwork. Something fundamental in Luis Enrique’s style and that seems to be what has penalized De Gea – his footwork leaves much to be desired.
