AEK: Barcelona, the rise and persistence of Roca

Greek publications put Aitor Kandalapientra on Xavi Roca's radar. This is the 25-year-old (10/2/96) Spanish winger of Panathinaikos, who, as everything shows, will not be included in Ivan Jovanovic's plans for the new season.

Aitor joined PAO in June 2020 at the suggestion of Xavi Roca, signing a three-year contract. At the end of the season, Aitor had a total of 22 appearances with the “clover”, scoring three goals.

However, what comes out of AEK, at least so far, is that there has been no official blow to the Athens team for this particular footballer.

However, what is drawn as a conclusion from the Greek media is that if AEK hits the 25-year-old Spaniard, he is not expected to face particular difficulties and obstacles, as Panathinaikos is reportedly willing to lend the player, even on loan.

Aitor joined the Barcelona academy when he was young, moved to Espanyol as a teenager and returned to Barcelona to make his professional debut for the Catalans' second team in 2015. He also managed to wear the first team jersey in a cup match on 2 December 2015 instead of Villanovese. In January 2016 he moved to Villarreal and played mainly in the second team. In 2017 he joined Seville, playing again in the second team.

Finally, at the age of 22, he decided to leave Spain, accepting the offer of the Dutch Twente, where he had two very good seasons. In the first he was her best player (she scored 13 times), leading her to the promotion to the First Division, while in the second season she was again a key player, scoring 7 times in 21 appearances. The above statistics led Roca to suggest his acquisition by Panathinaikos, but to which Aitor did not adapt in his first year and failed to offer what was expected.

It remains, then, to see if AEK is really interested in the Spaniard and whether it will make an official blow to include him in its potential. What is certain is that Roca is looking for reinforcement (and) in the wings of the attack, with players who are good at “one against one”, pressing area and having the goal and apparently he did not stop believing in his compatriot and… insists on betting on him.
