Sergio, pissed: “We threw the game after a great job”

first_imgSergio Gonzalez, coach of Real Valladolid, lamented at the end of the game against Real Madrid that a side center would disrupt their options to add. “I am very pissed off having thrown a game after exceptional work. We have only generated danger to the ball, “he said.“We can’t throw a game for a badly defended brand. If they had to beat us, we wanted it to be for a genius. Such a powerful team shouldn’t beat you like that“, said the coach, who stressed that his pupils had” minimized the rival in all combinatorial aspects. ” they were “less to more”, since they came out “somewhat self-conscious, because of the pressure involved in playing at home and leading many games without winning,” he explained. In this regard, he indicated that “they” did not want “make mistakes “and that “excessive responsibility” made them “be inaccurate.” Despite this, the blanquivioletas were “growing” in the game and had “controlled”, although the goal altered that feeling. Following the so much, they vanished, “because there was nothing left to lose. “” We cannot afford these luxuries, “the coach reiterated, regretting the goal again. In his opinion, “the party has worked well, Madrid has not been comfortable, has not leaked balls and has only won the ball stopped “. As to Raul Ram, who just arrived at the team in the market winter, said they knew that “he is a footballer who was going to give performance important immediately, and that was an alternative to Nacho. ” Regarding the change of An I by Oscar Plano, Sergio Gonzalez commented that “when taking out Real Madrid to Lucas Vázquez they changed the band to Rodrygo so we wanted to balance the two for two in band with the entrance of Plano “.center_img In this regard, he warned that “in all changes, are sought all the pros and cons “and, in that case, it was thought which tip was taken and they thought that Ünal was more tired than Guardiola. The fans seemed to dislike it, although the coach was sympathetic. “I understand that you did not like the change,” he confessed, although he clarified that I did not think that to err “in the marks dictated in a lateral center” had “nothing to do with playing with one or two strikers”.last_img read more

The right hand paradox

first_imgWas Pablo Maffeo the desired option by the then coach, David Gallego, to replace before the preseason began the vacancy left by Roberto Rosales in Espanyol after finishing his assignment. But the canterano opted for Girona and, by the time he had the money to recover the Venezuelan (just over a million, of the three initially asked for by Málaga) it was already late, he had been awarded the Leganés. And it wasn’t until the final stretch of the market, on August 21, when he obtained the club perico the loan of Sébastien Corchia from Sevilla. Some tombs of the summer market that, in the background, are nothing more than a symptom of dizziness experienced by Espanyol in the demarcation of right-handed lateral.It is a true paradox, since the team does not give, and that three technicians have already passed through the bench, with a fixed occupant just in one of the seasons that has the most tenants position. Even taking Corchia for granted, who right now does not have a bib because his return is unlikely or, at least, undetermined. The sublimation of the disruption occurred last Saturday, against Athletic, when a center like Lluís López ended up occupying the lane, after Víctor Sánchez, who had been the holder for the sanction of Javi López, played a few minutes threatened to see a second yellow. Javi is precisely who started the season on the side and who can complete it, judging by the decisions of Abelardo Fernández, who also seems not to have Víctor Gómez, which rose precisely his predecessor, Pablo Machín, and that last Sunday he even returned to play with Espanyol B, in Second B. Nor is another canterano like Gonzalo Ávila ‘Pipa’, this one with a professional record, has enjoyed the approval of none of the three technicians, beyond their brilliant match in the Europa League, against Ferencvaros … Playing left-handed.There were fewer problems last year, and that Pipa left on loan and only Javi López and Rosales remained, or between 2016 and 2018, when Marc Navarro shared the position With the captain, the fruit of his effort is always there. So who knows if the problem can be enlarged if the next course does not renew contract. For now, in Granada, it will reappear in the lane.last_img read more

Qatar suspends the League until March 29

first_imgUntil now Qatar had not decided to take drastic measures regarding football. Although earlier in the week, the government had suspended classes at all colleges and universities, kept going as for the king sport, before the outrage of the protagonists.Xavi Hernández, coach of Al Sadd, was the first to cry out to heaven last Thursday, showing his utter perplexity at having to play a game behind closed doors on Friday for the quarterfinals of the Emir Cup. “There is no point in continuing to play because we are talking about a public health issue“Denounced the technician. Fortunately, those responsible for the QSL took good note of the complaints and outrage of the protagonists, and have decided to suspend from today and until next March 29 the matches that had to be played in the League competition. Likewise, the rest of the matches scheduled in other competitions and categories are also postponed. Xavi showed his support for this decision, giving a ‘like’ to the official announcement of the Federation of the suspension of the League through social networks.Thus, the Government of Qatar wants to set an example on prevention measures and, although it does not have any coronavirus victims yet (about 300 infected have been counted so far), maintain a protocol of maximum intensity to prevent the spread of the pandemic. This month The Moto GP World Championship has already been canceled in Doha, although it did run Moto 2 and Moto 3. In any case, we must not forget that Qatar will host the 2022 soccer World Cup and it must be a paradigm in every way, both in safety and prevention.last_img read more

Neymar or Lautaro, dilemma

first_imgBut Lautaro does not compete with anyone. Being a winger, not a striker like Lautaro, Neymar has scored 18 goals in 22 games and has provided 10 assists. Not only that. Neymar is more than a tremendous soccer player when he sets his mind to it. It is a brand and Barça needs a commercial claim that powerful for when Messi is no longer there. In addition, the arrival of Neymar would allow Luis Suárez to end his contract with Barça. The Catalan club could consider the incorporation of a level striker (Aubameyang, Ben Yedder), but at a lower price than Lautaro. In favor of Lautaro, however, it weighs that a sector of the Barça directive does not see the return of Neymar clearly. Not only for how he left and for his carousel of complaints against Barça, but for his irregular sports performance the last three seasons due to injuries. For short-termists, the signing is Neymar without conclusion. It guarantees results from the beginning and your level of motivation, in principle, would be very high. Lautaro is a project. And then there is the Messi factor, who will not decide but with whom he will obviously consult the club as Bartomeu himself has acknowledged that he does on occasion. For asking, the six-time Ballon d’Or will love both of them. He is a friend and a lover of Neymar’s football and Barça’s trident is one of his best memories as a footballer, but he also closely follows Lautaro’s evolution as a future for Barça.It cannot be ruled out that the club tries both signings. That would only be possible in a very favorable scenario, if all the stars were aligned and if the operations were cheaper with players. But neither PSG nor Inter have shown signs of being in the process of accepting barter. And something else. Barça not only need to renew their top. From the top of the club insists for months on the need to sign a right back (Emerson can come if there is a good offer for Semedo); a right center (Bastoni, Christensen, Bastoni sound and the dream is still De Ligt); and a midfielder on the course (one of the favorites is Fabián, but his price at the moment does not make it easy). If Barça really wants to fix their spine, Lautaro and Neymar will not fit. And we will have to choose in that dilemma. Barça do not have 300 million euros in the box. That is what, today, it would cost him to face the operations of Neymar (about 180-190 in round numbers) and Lautaro Martínez (his exit clause, only during the first two weeks of July, is 111 million euros ). It is possible that the market crash due to the coronavirus crisis will lower player prices this summer. But if that happens, the same will happen with the transfer budgets of the clubs.Although Barça is encouraged internally to sell that it is possible, a decision will have to be made. Neymar or Lautaro. Sportingly, it appears that the Argentine is more necessary for Barça. At 22 years old, the Inter striker has scored 16 goals in 31 official matches, has begged his market value (on the transfermarkt specialized website he went from 40 to 80 million euros) and has the ideal profile to be the successor de Suárez in Barcelona. His age would allow rejuvenate the squad and amortize his signing. At 33 years old, Suarez is in the final stretch of his career. Barça have been watching Lautaro Martínez live for months and the reports are positive. It is the preferred nine.last_img read more
