The second youngest squad in the League


Perhaps in professional football, when it comes to winning games, it is not a value in itself, but when youth is combined with competitiveness, it becomes a meritorious virtue. After the signings made during the summer transfer market, Real remain the second youngest team in the entire First Division, with an average age of 24.7 years. Logically, txuri urdin will demand results without looking at their DNI, but it is compelling to see a team in action with current and future expectations.

In the youth ranking, the realistic squad is surpassed only by Valencia, whose average age drops to 24.4 years. However, the Che and Guipuzcoan models are not comparable. At Mestalla, the rejuvenation of the squad is due to the need to sell the most sought-after players with higher salaries and use players fresh from the youth academy. In Real it is a bet.

Due to the departure, unwanted in either case, of the two oldest players from last year’s team, Silva (37) and Illarramendi (33), Robert Olabe and txuri urdin managers opt for players from other generations, such as Zakharyan (20 years), Tierney (26), Andre Silva (27), Odriozola (27) and Traore (31). These are hardly new footballers, but they are from different age groups.

In fact, the left-back from Mali became the ‘grandfather’ of the realistic first team, leading the Aritz Elustondo (29) and Alex Remiro (28). At the other end lies again Momo Choat the age of 19.

Only 20 players were used

For its part, there is only one team that has used fewer players than Imanol’s Real (20). This is Míchel’s Girona (19)
