Lux leaves hurt behind in Mallorca
Argentine goalkeeper Germán Dario Lux has joined Deportivo la Coruña after leaving Real Mallorca in the summer after four unsuccessful seasons. He leaves the island with bittersweet memory of his time as a Mallorquinista.
The goalkeeper has always had stiff competition for the number one jersey, first with Miguel Àngel Moyà and then Dudu Aoute. But what has troubled Lux the most is the treatment of him by Sports Director Llorenç Serra Ferrer.
Since the launch of the project Mallorca 2.0 by Serra Ferrer, Lux has been the only player to take a wage cut but more than halving his salary (£11,900 per week to £4,800 per week) but the club has shown him no loyalty back.
“I have always made an effort and co-operated with the request of the club’s leadership team. I always behaved and was never any trouble. I think the least I deserved was a phone call. I played little, but when I played I played well and was always professional. But the leaders have never valued me.”
Recently, Cladera apologised to Ayoze as no one rang him to say goodbye from the club. But Lux doesn’t look back in anger at his time at the club.
“I spent four great years at Mallorca, who gave me the chance to play in Europe. I bare no grudge against anyone because that is not me. I am very grateful to Miki Garro, the goalkeeping coach, and I wish all the best to my former teammates.”
