sasuna will return to play in First Division three seasons after his ephemeral last experience in the highest category of Spanish football. The disappointment of not qualifying for the 'playoffs' of promotion of last season turned into illusion in the present. A virtually immaculate year, memorable and hard to repeat this Monday thanks to the victory of Granada in Albacete. And that the start was not good, because Osasuna took four days to achieve his first victory, only in his first five games of the championship. Unlike last year, where the rojillos were maximum contenders for promotion after finishing down to Second, the Navarre did not start as favorites.
The summer kicked off with a new coach, Jagoba Arrasate, who had just finished a cycle of three seasons in a Numancia with whom he reached the 'playoffs' of promotion; precisely at the expense of his current team. The only requirement demanded by President Sabalza's directive was not the promotion but to connect with a disillusioned tier. And he got it at the first exchange. The results helped.
