Mariga secures loan move to La Liga

After spending another season on the bench and making brief appearances as a substitute, McDonald Mariga’s prised a move to one of the world’s more prestigious and open leagues in Spain’s Primera Division ( or La Liga ). It has been a rather frustrating season soon after playing the UEFA Champions League semi-final as a late substitute for Inter Milan and winning 4 cups ( UEFA Champs League, Scudetto , Coppa Italia and FIFA World Club Cup). Mourinho’s move and subsequent arrival of Rafael Benitez saw Mariga’s active play diminish making only 21 appearances for the club.

With the loan move to Real Sociedad, it will be interesting if Philippe Montanier will be willing to grant him more playing time and make his a worthy trip across to a more temperate country. Playing in the League with some of the current world’s biggest names in Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and even managing to play in the same team with another loanee Carlos Vela from Arsenal would be any player’s dream.

Tis our prayer that with more playing time, he shall not disappoint...
