Dioni, against her past

Málaga CF has almost completely renewed its squad this summer. He has made 11 signings to give a new air to the team in all its lines, and one of the most media-famous incorporations that the Martiricos club has signed is that of Dioni Villalba. The attacker from Malaga is called to be the ‘goal man’ for Pellicer’s team this season, although for now he has not managed to debut in an official match. This Sunday he will have a new opportunity in the field of Atlético Balearesa very special place for him.

Dioni has arrived free this summer at Málaga CF after having played the last two seasons in the First Federation with Atlético Baleares. He had options to continue on the island, but finally decided to change the scene and enroll in the new blue and white project. «It was clear that she wanted to come. In previous years I have always told him that I want to go to Malaga. It couldn’t have been. Here we are », he said at the presentation of him as a malaguista.

The striker from Malaga is here to be important. As sports director Loren Juarros said in his market analysis appearance last Wednesday, Málaga has incorporated “the top scorer of the Primera RFEF in recent years”. So now it’s up to Dioni to show why the club has made such a determined commitment to him.

Dioni has not been the most outstanding in the first two days -he missed a penalty in Castalia-. He has worked for the team, he has shown quality, but so far he has not seen a door. In Castellón he played somewhat leaning to the wing and against Atleti B he was the second striker. And in both games he was seen too far from the area. If Málaga CF has signed one of the best scorers in the category, they must take advantage of it.

back to his old house

The blue and white striker will have another revalidation this Sunday (12.00 hours / FEF TV) in his old home, the field of Atlético Baleares, a place where he has already shown that he can be a differential scorer in the category. In his two years in the Majorcan team -2021/22 and 2022/23-, Dioni has been one of the top scorers in the First RFEF. This last course added 14 goals, and a campaign before he reached the remarkable figure of 18 goals, 17 in the First Federation and 1 in the Copa del Rey. At 33 years old, the time has come for him to leave his mark on the first team in his land, Málaga CF.

Loren, satisfied with the attack

Dioni has to be one of the offensive references. Together with Roberto and Loren Zúñiga, who finally stayed in the squad, have to be the players who contribute the most goals to the team. There are some doubts as to whether Málaga CF lacks a little more punch at the top, but sports director Loren Juarros is convinced that there is a guaranteed lead. «I think Málaga has three good forwards, with different profiles, with different characteristics. Between the three of them they are going to give joy, I have no doubt, “said the Burgos in the press room.

After not seeing a goal in these first two days, wasting even a penalty against Castellón, Dioni has a new opportunity to open his scoring account of the season. Will the famous ‘law of ex’ be fulfilled this Sunday?
