Las Palmas’ New Defender Cala Says Coach Pushes Hard for Peak Performance

LAS PALMAS, Spain – Spanish defender Juan Torres Ruiz, known as Cala, said during his presentation on Tuesday as a new player for UD Las Palmas that coach Manuel Jimenez was a key incentive to sign with the relegated club, saying he is a leader who pushes hard to get the most out of his team.

The 28-year-old Andalusian center-back joined Las Palmas on a two-year contract with the option to extend for a third year, returning to Spain after a short, disappointing spell in the Chinese Super League with Henan Jianye FC.

“I will try to blend in with the club. It is clear I am not from Las Palmas but from now on, I am going to defend this shirt as if it were mine,” Cala said.

Cala added that the squad will need to manage the added pressure to get Las Palmas back into La Liga, after finishing 19th in the 2017/2018 season with only five wins.

In January 2015, Cala signed with Granada on a six-month contract, then joined Getafe for three seasons in June of the same year, leaving for China in March 2018.
