The players that helped us return to the Champions League… Toni Lato

He has secured his place in the first-team squad and with Spain U21

Step by step, Toni Lato has taken things steady and ensured that he has become a reliable force on then left flank. He has been at the club since the age of eight, and this season he has secured his place in the first-team squad and a place in Spain’s U21 side.

Lato has enjoyed a solid campaign and in doing so, he and José Gayà have become one of the best left-back pairings in LaLiga, with both having been developed in the club’s system too.

The young left back has been involved in 20 games across the league and the Copa del Rey, with his contributions helping to encourage the club to continue to trust in home-grown talent. He represents the club’s DNA and participated in a goal that was 100% created at Paterna this season. Gayá released Lato, who provided an assist for Carlos Soler.
