La Liga global network Nigerian delegate, Javier del Rio has backed Levante new signing, Moses Simon to thrive in Spain.

Rio who was speaking in Lagos yesterday, said Simon has quality and the discipline to succeed with Levante in the La Liga which will resume in a fortnight.

“He is one of Nigeria’s best wingers. I have no doubt he will do well with Levante.”

He disclosed that there are new innovations for the 2019 season. These include video assistant referee.

“ And the stadia are better equipped than ever to give fans the most thrilling experience possible.

“There have also been two significant advances on the technology front, with the most up-to-date broadcasting technology now implemented to bring the spectacle to screens around the world, as well as the introduction of VAR. The first of 38 LaLiga matchdays kicks off on August 17th.”

The 2018/19 LaLiga Santander season will of course have three new teams on board, in the shape of SD Huesca, Rayo Vallecano and R. Valladolid CF.

Aside from new clubs, there are plenty of fresh faces whom fans will be keen to watch. Star names from across the globe have joined LaLiga Santander clubs, the most eye-catching transfers being Chile’s Arturo Vidal to FC Barcelona, France’s Thomas Lemar to Atletico Madrid and Peru’s Luis Advincula to Rayo.

Three other notable names heading to pastures new within Spain are Mexico’s Miguel Layun, who has joined Villarreal CF, Nigeria’s Moses Simon, who has joined Levante, and Japan’s Takashi Inui, who has signed for Real Betis.

The transfer window doesn’t close until August 31st, so LaLiga Santander clubs still have plenty of time to add quality to their ranks.
