Collado spent the second half of this season on loan with Granada and he will be back next term
In football having patience is a very rare virtue. The ‘here and now’ rules. To have enough personality not to fall victim to that takes a lot. Alex Collado wants to succeed at Camp Nou and next season he will have the chance impress Xavi Hernandez. The coach says he counts on Collado for next season and the forward told Relevo after the game between Catalunya and Jamaica that he is “looking forward for the summer to end to be able to come back” to the club.
The coach have told him that he will be, although you never know how the situation with the finances and market will go. He knows more than anyone how unpredictable it can be, having been unregistered for six months this season because of a late move breaking down. He got back going again on loan at Granada, where he was very happy. He has only missed two games since the switch, scoring two goals. He set himself a mission when he arrived, to improve his work without the ball, and he has done. Against Athletic he scored after a great recovery and it was a good reward for his work.
One of his priorities was to prove himself as a technical player but also someone who will give it all for the team, and he did it. He was the Granada player who won back the most balls, taking into account the attacking midfielders and forwards.
