The largest shareholder of Cdiz, CF, the historic agent of footballers Enrique Pina, maintains in statements to EL MUNDO that the team from Cádiz that he himself designed has achieved promotion to the First Division despite the "betrayal" of its president, Manuel Vizcano, with whom Locos por el Balón shares the society but in which control has been taken from him.
"Everything was going very well and the club was in second position when the same person I bet on to be president and have a leading role," he points out in reference to Vizcano, "decided to take advantage of a personal problem that I had and which fortunately is in the process of being resolved," he adds, referring to the judicial procedure in which he is immersed in the National Court in the so-called 'Operation Lbero'. "Although it did not affect Cdiz, CF, I decided to betray myself and take advantage of the situation to remove my signature and then dismiss me as a director," he added.
"However, he left a job done that has paid off. It is obvious that players like Cifuentes, Marcos Mauro, Garrido, Jos Mari, lex Fernndez, Salvi, Perea, David Gil or Sergio belong to this stage where I have to take the maximum responsibility ". "Special mention has the decision that was made at the worst moment of the season to renew Cervera for three years, which ends his contract. Everyone knows that if he had not had this duration he would never have renewed, but in the end thanks to the pressure meditica that we have all managed to exercise we have managed to continue with us. "
Pina also highlights the factor that the fans have played in the promotion. "Everything has been thanks to her support, without her nothing would have been achieved and her drive has been key in the bad times." But also the work of "two people who have been fundamental". The first, Juan Carlos Cordero, "who did a great job of sports management." The second, "Rafael Fernndez, who invested after I convinced him, promising him that this project would work." "When the capital increase was made, Fernndez was essential, since it could not have been completed without his contribution and has supported the team as a great cadista, being a sponsor from the beginning."
Whoever was representative of some of The most important Spanish soccer stars during the nineties, he predicts that he will return "sooner rather than later" to the club's management once his legal problems have been solved. "To return to a category that I have already enjoyed for five years in Granada, CF, always achieving the objective of not descending."
Lastly, Pina took the opportunity to congratulate "players, technicians, employees and all those who helped from the start. " But also "to those who are today on the Board of Directors of the club, so that they enjoy what one day I decided to create. They know that if I did not take the step, they could never have started this project. Let them not doubt that I would be always very close, that I will not abandon my effort to direct what I have created, so we will see each other sooner rather than later. "
Likewise, he makes a" very special mention "to his father," still president of honor of this club, which always behaved like a man, and for whom I was encouraged to enter the project. " "Today we celebrate this promotion together with the greatest emotion, with the certainty that we will be with the Cadista family again," he adds.
