In any case, and after his last two seasons in which he has played little role, he wants to feel like a “footballer” again, and he assures that he is “at a good level”, both personally and physically, to “prove it every weekend.” week” and start playing now with his new team, from next Monday on the visit to Burgos.
Loren knows, from references to the yellow dressing room, that there is “a great group”, and among those he knows, he has cited Sidnei and Kaptoum, with whom he met at Betis, although he also maintains a “good relationship” with Canarian players such as Álex Suárez or Benito Ramírez, and precisely from the latter, he inherited his number 11, when he was absent this season due to a back injury that required surgery.
The player from Marbella arrives on loan until the end of the season from Betis, with a non-mandatory purchase option, as confirmed by Luis Helguera, sports director of the island club, who considers Loren a “top level” footballer who will provide “alternatives in attack » and will make the yellow team «more versatile».
