“I left as a child and came back as a football player.” Four years after his signing for Valencia CF, the sky-blue youth player Santi Mina returns to RC Celta under an atmosphere of absolute enthusiasm for the academy project that is being drawn up. The Galician attacker was presented last Friday in Abanca Balaídos, accompanied by the counselor Fernando Rodilla and the sports director Felipe Miñambres, to the media and 2,500 fans who received the player at the highest esteem.
“It was clear to me that I wanted to be part of this project, at home,” Mina told the press. The striker was very happy to return to what is his home and showed it later on the turf of the stadium, where he dedicated himself to the Celtists attending: “You’re going to be very important. We have to be united,” said the player in front of a packed stand. Mina delighted the attendees by answering several questions from the fans collected on social networks and handing out signed balls. The act ended with the signing of autographs in the store of the stadium.
