Carlisle United will be relegated to England’s League Two next season & as a result the club is cleaning house. The club announced the imminent departure of twelve players, among those cuts will be former Rangers forward Nacho Novo.
Novo signed back in February after being released being released by Morton.
At the time of the signing Novo spoke with the club’s official website.
“All I want to do now is get out there and play. I will try to do my best and I am a person who always likes to prove himself.”
“What you have done before has been and gone. It’s in the past. You have to look positively to the future and make sure you prove yourself again.”
“My motivation comes because I love football. When you go through a spell where you can’t play, for any reason, you watch the games on TV and things like that and you realise how much you miss it. I just know that I want to keep playing.”
“The situation at Morton was difficult because we weren’t winning games and it was tough for me. I was playing up front by myself and we were losing games.”
“Before that I had spells in Spain and Poland and they were both good experiences for me. I had a chance to stay at Rangers but I wanted to experience playing in Spain. After that I went to Poland and played for Warsaw. I won a trophy there and got the chance to play in Europe again. It was a good experience but it was too cold!”
“I think the main reason I came back over here was for my family. They are from Glasgow and they found it hard to settle in Spain. When we spoke about what we were going to do they said that they wanted to come back. I have a little boy so you have to consider schools and all of these things. I’m really pleased that it has worked out for us.”
“I did have opportunities to go abroad to Malaysia and Brunei, but my family struggled to settle in Spain so they would have found it really hard over there. It was something to think about but I really wanted to stay over here.”
“The opportunity came up to play for Carlisle and I am very happy about that. I have no regrets at all because my decisions have been made for good reasons.”
Novo made six appearances for Carlisle – with zero goals & now will be spending the summer looking for another chance to prolong his footballing career.
Will there be another member of Rangers reunion?
