Head coach Juan Carlos Signes calls the signing 'a great reinforcement'

Friday 29th November 2019


CD Jávea's ambitions for promotion received a boost this week when midfielder Javi Hernández confirmed his return to the club where he started his playing career. After many rumours during the week, it was finally reported that the 32-year-old had reached an agreement with the club to wear the red-and-white shirt once again with head coach Juan Carlos Signes considering the signing as 'a great reinforcement' for the club, strengthening the side with his ability to play in several positions as well as being an attacking option to complement current league top scorer Juan Manuel Guerrero. The player has already started training with the team and is likely to go straight into the squad for Sunday's important home match against UE L'Alcudia, kick-off 4.30pm.

Javi rose through the ranks at Jávea to captain the senior side during the 2015/16 season before opting to leave the club in search of new challenges in the summer of 2016, crossing over the hulk of Montgó to join bitter rivals CD Dénia who were then managed by current CD Jávea head coach Juan Carlos Signes. At the end of the same season he picked up the award for Group III's 'Best Midfielder' and the following season he received a nomination for the region's 'Best Player' award. Last season he reclaimed the award for the group's best midfielder and collected his accolade alongside CD Jávea's Edu Samblas who was named as 'Best Goalkeeper'. With group champions CD Dénia facing enormous financial problems during the summer, Javi was amongst the group of players who opted to leave the club and he joined Third Division CF La Silla, a level at which he had experience with Alicante CF. But it seemed that he lacked real opportunities at a side which has been struggling at the wrong end of the table and this week it was confirmed that he'd decided on returning to his home club which will welcome back a more experienced and influential player to support the push for promotion to the Third Division.

Speaking to javea.com after his return to the club was confirmed, Javi admitted that his decision to leave was 'a mistake' and that he felt that he had been influenced by third parties to leave the club. Now he just wants to look forward and said that he was excited to return to Jávea and that he was eager to help the team in its ambitions. For head coach Juan Carlos Signes, it has been a good signing. 'He spent two years with me at Dénia, he knows the players, the squad and the way of training so he doesn't need time to fit in.'
