Uche, We Hardly Knew Ye

Ikechukwu Uche has left Getafe for Real Zaragoza in a deal worth around €5m.

Although Ike did not start every game, he was highly rated by both the coaching staff and the management at the Coliseum, Angel Torres being a particular admirer of his.

But now that he's moved on - and not for a massive fee - we have lost a great talent.

Uche arrived from Recreativo in 2007 after four years in Andalusia, having been in Spain since he was a teenager.

Although he never really replicated his old goalscoring form at Geta, he had a habit of netting at just the right time. He scored the infamous 'celebration' goal against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, and also struck against Osasuna under Michel at the end of last season in the game that gave fans faith in our survival.

I wish Uche the absolute best of luck at the Romareda!
