PENALBA will link up with coach Paco JEMEZ whom he played for during their time together in Mexico. He is expected to play a crucial role in helping the club to lift itself out from the bottom of the Spanish league. He will be the fourth Argentine in the La Union Deportiva squad; Jonathan CALLERI, Hernan TOLEDO and Leandro CHICHIZOLA.
