Manchester City’s Aleix García has struggled for chances on loan at Girona FC this season, and is not alone, with only Pablo Maffeo of the City crew really becoming a regular in Pablo Machín’s overachieving side.
Aleix, 20, was given just his seventh La Liga start for the Catalan club in tonight’s game away at Deportivo Alavés and delivered by breaking the deadlock after 59 minutes.
The Spain under-21 international probably didn’t mean to do what he did, but a goal is a goal. His curling free kick evaded everyone, including the goalkeeper, and crept into the net, stunning the crowd at the Mendizorrotza Stadium.
García will hope to build on his first La Liga goal by playing more games before the season ends before returning to Man City in the summer.
