A Sede hosts official presentation of Olaza and Boudebouz

RC Celta

Ryad Boudebouz and Lucas Olaza, winter market reinforcements for RC Celta together with Wesley Hoedt, were officially presented to the media this Tuesday at A Sede. Accompanied by the sky blue board member Fernando Rodilla and the sports director Felipe Miñambres , both players agreed to “give the best for the team and the club” besides underlining “the attitude” demonstrated against Sevilla as the way to go.



Ryad Boudebouz (Colmar, 19 February 1990) is a versatile attacking midfielder, an international player with Algeria and who has played more than 300 matches in the French Ligue 1. He was particularly impressive with Montpellier, where he finished the 2016/2017 season with eleven goals and nine assists.

In addition to his individual quality, Boudebouz stands out for his one-on-one skills, his great vision of the game and his good left-footed shot, qualities that allow him to be a specialist in free-kicks.



Lucas Olaza (Montevideo, 27-07-1994) has grown a lot as a player in the last few seasons, where he excelled in Uruguay, excelled at clinics in Argentina and finally found a place on the team of the historic Boca Juniors, where he was one of the key pieces in their qualification for the final of the Copa Libertadores.

In addition to his excellent physical condition, the defender stands out for his great shot, which has allowed him to score a good number of goals, seventeen, as well as nine assists, despite his defensive role.

Lucas Olaza, Uruguay’s U-20 international player, is familiar with the city and the club, since he played a total of 24 games for RC Celta’s B-side in the 2015/2016 season.
