Martin Braithwaite could not have wished for a better start to life at his new club. The forward started inside, scored the winning goal for the club and now garners praise from the Spanish football media Braithwaite is no longer a villain in Catalan terms but rather a savior who brought Espanyol out of the darkness with his scoring. Photo: Juan Manuel Serrano Arce/Getty Images For a long time it seemed to be an approved, but also boring debut for Danish Martin Braithwaite, who got the chance from the start for his new club RCD Espanyol. In the first 83 minutes, the Dane had shown himself with some fine actions, but nothing that shook the foundations of coach Diego Martinez. Suddenly the Dane appeared with a deep run and – with a bit of luck – got the opportunity to send the Catalans to the front. The striker coolly slotted the ball in behind Bilbao’s Unai Simón, and in one fell swoop Braithwaite went from FC Barcelona disgrace to Espanyol saviour…. It was the club’s first win of the season. The article continues after the picture … The savior from Esbjerg has been given a 3-year contract with the Catalan club Photo: Juan Manuel Serrano Arce/Getty Images Catalan Mundo Deportivo proclaims Braithwaite as the best on the pitch, as the Dane scored ‘one of the most important goals in his career’ with the importance of the victory in mind, making the fans forget the club’s disastrous end in the transfer market’. AS also speaks highly of the Danish national team striker and calls Braithwaite the ‘solution’ to Espanyol’s woes. The new acquisition has only managed to train with the team twice, but was nevertheless given a starting place by coach Diego Martinez, who was thankful to say the least after the win. – We stood well against a very strong opponent, especially after what we have been through with injuries and debuting players in the form of Braithwaite and Alvaro, who wanted to help, and for that I can only say thank you. says Espanyol coach Diego Martinez to Marca. The article continues after the post … Before today’s match, Braithwaite had gone over a year without scoring in La Liga, and therefore it was also a delighted Dane who spoke after the match. – We knew it was a very difficult opponent, but we fought to the end and won. I’m proud of the team and now we have to be happy with this win, even though we know that Sevilla is waiting next time.
