Spanish LaLiga Santander strugglers Malaga FC have named Nigerian pair Brown Ideye and Isaac Success in their 19-man squad ahead of Sunday’s crucial clash against Celta Vigo. The squad announcement, disseminated by Malaga coach Jose Gonzalez, was made public on the club’s official Twitter handle on Saturday.
Brown Ideye, who joined Malaga in the January transfer window on loan from Chinese Super League outfit Tianjin Teda, has already featured in seven league appearances, finding the net once. Isaac Success, also on loan from Premier League side Watford, has played in three league games for Malaga but is yet to register a goal.
As Malaga confronts the challenge of breaking a seven-game losing streak, the inclusion of Ideye and Success is anticipated to inject vigor into the team’s attacking options. The club currently languishes at the bottom of the league table with a mere 13 points.
The Nigerian duo’s contribution to Malaga’s fortunes will be closely watched as they seek to play pivotal roles in reversing the team’s recent struggles. Their involvement in the squad underscores the coach’s confidence in their ability to make a positive impact.
As the LaLiga season unfolds, the collaboration between Ideye, Success, and the Malaga squad could prove crucial in the club’s bid to secure vital points and climb out of the relegation zone. The Sunday encounter against Celta Vigo presents an opportunity for redemption and the Nigerian contingent will be aiming to play key roles in steering Malaga towards a much-needed victory.
