Pablo Maffeo returns to Girona

The Spanish international player Pablo Maffeo has become the first Girona FC signing for the 2019-20 season. Pablo arrives from VFB Stuttgart on loan.

Pablo Maffeo (Sant Joan Despi, Barcelona, July 12, 1997) is a right-back noted for his strength and his attacking forays but can also play in midfield given his speed and agility in retrieving the ball in defense.

Maffeo starts his third stage at the Catalan club, having been on loan from Manchester City for two and a half seasons at two different points. In spite of his youth, Pablo was a key player in the squad that won promotion for Girona FC to Spain’s 1st Division and played more than 60 games during these stages.

After a season in Germany, Maffeo is keen to become a key player in Juan Carlos Unzué's team and return Girona to their just position in the first division.
