El Salvador: The New Águila Football Club

José Díaz blogs [es] on Te hablo de Fútbol [I talk with you about football] about his impressions on the new team coach and the recently hired players for Águila Football Club:

Creo que en Águila deben estar aquellos que de verdad sientan la identidad del equipo, la camiseta emplumada pesa demasiado y pone a cada uno en su sitio, esto es así, han venido extranjeros y también nacionales que no han dado la talla y han deambulado como fantasmas en pena sin demostrar la calidad que se le exige y han tenido que marcharse a las primeras de cambio.

I think that with [the] Águila should be those who really feel a team identity, the adorned with feathers T-shirt is too heavy and puts everybody in their place. This is like that, some foreign [players] have arrived and so have locals that haven't been good enough and have wandered as lost souls without showing the required quality and had to leave in no time.
