Escriba hopeful of Pereira resolution

Fran Escriba says he is hopeful that Alvaro Pereira will be eligible for Getafe’s trip to Levante in La Liga on Friday.

The left-back joined El Geta on transfer-deadline day in January but has yet to debut for his new team after arriving with an eight-game ban, incurred during his spell in Argentine football with Estudiantes, yet the Coach is confident of a quick resolution.

“[Levante] strengthened very well [in January],” he said after the game.

“Their results aren’t fair in light of the effort they’ve showed. They’ve beaten nearby teams and competed with the big boys.

“They’ve been efficient in Valencia and had ​​good performances, similar to what’s happened to us.

“[On Pereira’s ban], everyone else is available. We’ll carry on waiting to see if Alvaro Pereira’s [ban] can be resolved today or tomorrow.”
