Visit to the capital for the Madrid Castilla game.

As many of you know I like to get to as many away games as possible. This year as we are in a group with Madrid the season showed real promise as Ryan air are still travelling to the capital. August wasn't possible and September didn't have a game that was in the right place when I could get away but now things are looking up. This weekend we managed a quick break leaving Saturday afternoon late and returning Sunday afternoon. First away game of the season Real Madrid Castilla. This game has promise as two of their better players had red cards and a couple more will be away with the under 21's Spanish national team. Most of our players are fit with only Nico, Pablo and Ruben not completing a full training session. The squad train again tomorrow and then Coach Antonio Calderon has his press conference. The players train again Saturday morning before departing for Madrid in the afternoon.. They stay overnight in the centre of the city and will travel home Sunday afternoon. Players interviewed today were Richi Kitoko and Nico. Kitoko was first up after the training session in the Mundialito grounds. He seemed nervous about the game in Valdebas on Sunday. "It will be a complicated match against a direct rival. I hope I will be able to help the team", he started. When asked about the new tactics introduced by trainer Calderon he admitted that he was, " more comfortable next too the defence, the way he played against Montañeros. The other way I don't perform so well. Either way I do my best to help the tea.", he continued. Nico, a young player in the blue and white squad starting by explaining his injuries, "I have muscle strain and that’s why I am training separately. Friday and Saturday I will train with the group. We will then see if the coach takes me with him or not". The forward seemed optimistic about the teams progress and what he hopes the future will bring. "We are doing well. We are second in the table and winning regularly. Added to this the group is becoming cohesive. Ideally we will reach the end of the season in perfect condition. Not just as players but as a team. We are on the right path but need to do more", he finished. Volkswagen Canarias have renewed their sponsorship contract with CD Tenerife for another year. The presentation was held today in the Heliodoro Rodriguez stadium Present for the club was Ricardo Siverio, sports director, Pedro Cordero; trainer, Antonio Calderón; players Víctor Bravo & Kiko Ratón. For the two concession holder Cuatromoción & Hatusa, Was managing director of the first company, Marcelo Pérez; & Luisa Martín, as representative of the second.
