Lago uncertain of Celta future

Celta Vigo left-back Roberto Lago claims nobody at the club has spoken to him about a new contract despite it expiring in June 2013.

Lago [pictured, right] has represented his hometown club his entire professional career and has featured in all Los Celestes’ opening three fixtures of the 2012-13 campaign, yet he says he has heard nothing regarding his future.

“So far nobody has called me nor do I know what the club are thinking. I have just under a year left and to be honest I want to complete it.

“I’m 27-years-old and have a lot of football ahead of me, but I now want to focus on what I have [at Celta]. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.”

The Galicians picked up their first victory of the season against Osasuna last weekend, following defeats to Malaga and Real Sociedad, and Lago believes it was an important time for Celta to register their first points.

“Now we have two weeks with which to work with some assurance. It was vital to win and even better to do it with such a good feeling.”

On the presence of a number of youngsters in Paco Herrera’s first team, Lago feels it is a vindication of the club’s youth policy in recent years.

“We are a young team that is going to get even better in this division. You can see that the youngsters are very important and perhaps haven’t been given the credit they deserve.

“I hope we can all improve over the next few years and if it is at this club then so much the better,” he added.
