Espanyol is immersed in a deep remodeling that began with the arrival of Diego Martínez to the Cornellá bench. And from the sports management they do not walk with considerations. The first two confirmed departures are from players with a great depth in the blue and white club. If this past Monday it was Diego López who left the entity by not renewing the contract that expires on June 30, today it was David López who closed an eight-year stage in the parakeet team and 237 official matches. The central defender has become a benchmark for the Espanyol fans, who have not forgotten his suffering and his tears during the season in which the team was certified relegated.
«David López has been an example for his professionalism, commitment and leadership capacity, especially in the most difficult moments of recent seasons. Captain of the first team, he has managed to play in Europe with Espanyol and after the disappointment of relegation, he led the team back to the First Division. The youth squad has been one of the pillars of the locker room and the club during Chen Yansheng's mandate and a true benchmark for Espanyolism," explains the Catalan club in a statement. David López will say goodbye to the club and the fans next Tuesday in an act that will take place at the RCDE Stadium around noon.
