Diego López will cease to be an Espanyol player as of June 30. The blue and white club has decided not to renew the goalkeeper's contract, which will end his time at the blue and white club after six seasons in which he has been one of the team's captains and one of the great benchmarks of the squad. Captain of the first team, Diego López has been, in all these seasons, one of the pillars of the dressing room and a reference for his teammates and the young people who have been part of the team. In these six seasons, the Galician goalkeeper has played 213 official matches with the blue and white shirt, becoming one of the club's historic players. In addition, he has set three unbeaten records with Espanyol (First Division, Second Division and in European competition), in addition to the Zamora award for the goalkeeper with the fewest goals scored in the Second Division, achieved in the 2020-21 season.
Now an unknown is opened in the future of the meta, which does not rule out withdrawal. In a recent interview with ABC, he assured that he had no intention of playing in another category other than the First Division, although he did not rule out playing abroad but at a high level.
