I understand that there is a lot of time and it can be fixed, “says the coach from Gipuzkoa.last_img read more

Zidane, the redeemer

first_imgMarcelo and Bale, two opposite cases with the same messageWhile Zidane has always opted for conciliatory speech, only Gareth Bale has taken him away from his marked line. “He has not been summoned because the club is trying to leave. If he leaves tomorrow, the better. I hope it is imminent for everyone. It is not personal. There comes a time where things are done because they must be done“said the coach of Real Madrid in the preseason. However, the situation took a turn and the Welshman ended up staying. That’s when he returned the ‘ZZ’ as usual. Despite numerous criticisms about the figure of ’11 ‘ for him Golf, the departures ahead of time of the Bernabéu or the controversial banner with Wales; Under the spotlights of cameras and microphones, Zidane has continued to support his footballer.The examples, in fact, are countless: “Bale has given everything“,”they want us to have a problem, but it’s not like that“,”I don’t watch him go“,”I will always defend my players“… Even so, his words do not seem to reveal his real thinking about Welsh. In recent weeks, Zidane has gotten used to leaving him off the list, although he allegedly had no physical problems. However, and unlike what some fans claim, he is not willing to lose him and continues to give him opportunities. Same, before Osasuna it was the game, so was the Alfonso Pérez Coliseum, and in the Classic …JESUS ​​ALVAREZ ORIHUELA & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Zidane and Bale chat in a match at the Santiago Bernabéu.JESUS ​​ALVAREZ ORIHUELA (DIARIO AS) Marcelo, on the other hand, does not receive extra-critical reviews, but for its performance on the pitch. Mendy has won the game, has made its place in the eleven and the Brazilian responds to the opportunities with defensive weakness and less vividness in attack than ever. Before Sevilla and Real Sociedad he did not show his best version. But … there was Zidane. After the copera elimination, he asked for justice for him: “Of course the critics hurt, because he is a player who gives everything in the field. This is not going to change, even if I say it hurts. The important thing for us is to give the maximum in the field and I believe that the fans have seen it “. Like Bale, the side is not in a great moment, although his technician is determined to recover them For the cause.More cases: Jovic, Courtois …Emilio Butragueño already said: “Zidane’s message is that everyone feels important“That’s why you saw the problem-solving cape, whenever they knock on the door. And it’s frequent. It happened with Courtois, always suffering from the comparison with Keylor Navas. The Belgian goalkeeper has taken a step forward and, in part, has been thanks to the responsibility that his technician always gave him. He was the hero of the Super Cup with Fede Valverde and has been named best player of January in LaLiga Santander. With messages like “for me Courtois is the best“,” we are all in the same boat “or” Courtois has saved us “is all simpler.Juanjo Martín & nbsp; (EFE) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Jovic enjoys the full confidence of Zidane despite not being successful from face to door.Juanjo Martín (EFE) In the semifinals of the Super Cup against Valencia, Isco scored his first goal of the season and his coach took the opportunity to praise him endlessly in the post-match. “I am very happy for him because he has always shown that he has personality and that it does not weigh him at all“said a smiling Zidane for the recovery of Malaga’s talent. A resurrection not expected by many, but by his coach. But the Frenchman’s work is not over. Other players in the squad live a situation similar to the one he lived in his day of Arroyo de la Miel. Their circumstances are different, of course, but ‘Zizou’, in the press room, has already shown that faith has not lost it. In a locker room, the coach is much more than the figure that organizes plays and alignments. Their job is also to join the squad and ensure that each and every player is one hundred percent. On the psychological level, Zinedine Zidane is indisputable and there are already several who have publicly thanked him for his support And I work with them. Not only that, under the storm, the French coach acts as a calm. All under his protective nature, balls on his roof, but never on that of his pupils. Years later, there is hardly any footballer who has not gone through a pothole. And each and every one of them have felt the Zidane person and the Zidane coach: Isco, Courtois, Rodrygo, Marcelo, Bale …Vinicius has been the last to recognize it. In an interview on Intensive Esporte, the Brazilian pearl thanks its technician for the message he conveys: “It always gives me confidence so that I have peace of mind and a good head whenever the time comes. It has helped me a lot. (…) Trust all players and if another player does not trust himself you can see that he always changes it, they never play the same. He is rescuing everyone and helping until they have confidence“The term” rescue “, used by the young attacker, is nothing more than a definition of one of Zidane’s qualities as a coach. A nuance that makes him more than an aligner, despite criticism when the results do not arrive In the case of ‘Vini’ it becomes evident. The extreme has always yielded that he has gone to the grass, but his low effectiveness of face to door has always haunted him and has caused hundreds of criticisms in social networks and media. That was done by Zidane, doing specific work with him to isolate himself from the inevitable impact of wearing the Real Madrid shirt. The same thing happened with Rodrygo. “He is a very nice guy, who always talks to me and gives me advice,” said the end on ESPN. Although its start has been less noisy than Vinicius, it also He has had the pressure handicap of being a Real Madrid player with 19 years and the fierce competition of the template. Even so, ‘ZZ’ has followed its path closely.Juanjo Martín & nbsp; (EFE) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Zidane gives directions to his players before the extension of the Spanish Super Cup.Juanjo Martín (EFE)center_img Jovic has not lived a few easy months at Real Madrid. He came with the scorer’s sign, but his figures are not, for the moment, up to expectations. Add two goals and two assists so far this season. Have 22 years, so it is natural that you need an adaptation time. Something that, on occasion, has been forgotten, Zidane publicly remembered: “He is the future. He is learning and has changed countries. He wants to learn a lot, works well and is very good. He will score many goals. Everyone says it, but I think it’s also a complete player. “They are almost a dozen names and those that will be added when the storm does not subside. Zidane has won the locker room, which gives the feeling of more united than ever in search of winning the national domestic championship again. The Champions League will arrive, although Real Madrid does not enjoy the favorite poster, as if it did in previous seasons. But the French coach has in the Champions League his favorite competition, who knows if because all his men go hand in hand towards glory. Because the one who has a problem always ends up finding the solution in Zidane. “He calls me at his office and shows me what went wrong tactically or technically. And what I did, when I was a player, that can help me. He has helped me a lot, “acknowledged a Rodrygo who has not yet found his regularity in the capital. However, the redeeming Zidane has two faces. On the one hand, his experience as a footballer help the youngest to improve on the grass. Similarly, the continuity of players like Brahim, despite not having continuity, they are a good example of this. It also helps them focus on their shield and not on external factors. His other face is even it is more necessary in the management of a template like that of Real Madrid. Let them tell talents such as Isco, Bale or Marcelo; always in the eye of the hurricane by the arrival of other men from behind and to those who Zidane has always defended cape and sword.Isco, from ostracism to stardomDay 14 of LaLiga Santander. Real Madrid wins Real Sociedad 3-1 and Isco plays seven minutes. One more day at the office for Malaga, who I had only added two titles in the League so far. Since then everything changed and went from forgotten to headline, even in a Classic or Super Cup matches. His first coach, José Enrique García, told in AS that his pupil had “lost the illusion” with Solari. Zidane also had to deal with it and always supported him in his great goal to go with the national team in the next Eurocup. In all the cases described above, there is one point in common: at a press conference, ZZ barely makes headlines, but always defends his own.Juanjo Martín & nbsp; (EFE) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Zidane congratulates Isco in the Spanish Super Cup.Juanjo Martín (EFE)last_img read more

The Leganés intuits that the RFEF will not let them sign for Braithwaite

first_imgBut There is also some discomfort with Barça. In the club They believe that the Catalans are entitled to execute the operation, but they did not like the forms, with hardly any information (The first news came to them through the press, not the club) and with an obvious delay in the payment of the clause that has done nothing but sharpen the wound.Even there are voices within the club that believe that Barça could have saved such an operation, that is, that such damage to the Leganés is not typical of an entity as large and traditionally respectful as the Catalan.To which no one reproaches anything is Braithwaite himself, who praise his professional attitude until the last day and his close and responsible treatment throughout this operation. There is also understanding towards your decision. A train like Barça’s is unchallengeable.Without room for maneuver, now the message that creeps is to join forces to prevent Braithwaite’s march from harming the team as it happened with the goodbye of En Nesyri. “We are going to stop Vigo,” they repeat in Butarque as a form of reaction to what they consider, it is the greatest injustice that has hit them since without a First team. The Leganés still has no official notification of the position that the RFEF will take to his extraordinary request to sign after the ‘clausulazo’ that has ended Braithwaite at Barça. Despite this, The generalized pulpit in Butarque is pessimistic. Informally, federal sources have already slipped that it is difficult to change the regulations. That Leganés must finish the season with the current squad and without replacement for the Danish striker.This perception does nothing but delve into the malaise of Leganés with this departure. Multidirectional discomfort. First, with the regulations that allow Barcelona to plunder the cucumber template without the Leganés being able to do anything about it or cover the hole left by Braithwaite. This was stated this morning by Martín Ortega, its general director, and its president, Victoria Pavón.last_img read more

Mikel Merino: “The action of the penalty is more than doubtful”

first_imgThe midfielder was asked about the barrier in the foul Messi threw: “Yes, this comes from the coaching staff. When a player has that success, you have to try to do something different. I think he was stunned by how we got. “Merino valued his presence at the Real: “It’s a pride. I’ve been a year and a half in the Real and I feel at home, one more of these people. It’s a pride and I’m happy. “ The player of the Real society He spoke at Movistar LaLiga after the game: “We have done a good job, we have dominated the game. But in the action that, more than doubtful, we are leaving the game. I think it’s a very doubtful action. I haven’t seen him almost, maybe a little on the markers. They have to explain to us better how the issue of hands works. It doesn’t look very clear. That beep this and not others …, the scale has to be at some point. The team is very good since the preseason. It is seen even with rest days. We are proud to come here with a band of kids who are not more than 25 years old. “last_img read more

A First Class Zaragoza

first_imgThe difference is vastly greater relative to the other six seasons of this seven-year journey in hell. The best of all to date in terms of score had been 2017-18. At this point Zaragoza was seventh with 49 points and finished the League in third position, although he was eliminated in the playoff of ascent by the Numantia. As for position, the Aragonese were sixth in 2014-15, in which the promotion also ended disputed. In contrast, the worst Zaragoza dates from last year, which on the 31st day was 17th with 34 points, 21 fewer than today.Regarding the number of goals in favor, the Aragonese team adds 45, only surpassed by 55 in 2008-09 and 48 in 2014-15, while it has received 30, two more than in the 2002-03 and 2015-16 seasons. Figures that make him the second highest scoring team and the third least scored this season, as well as being the best visitor. Numbers that predict a First Class Zaragoza.

Pelé: “I never imagined that he would be one of the greats”

first_imgPelé has been chosen as the athlete of the 20th century and is considered by all to be the greatest footballer in all of history. But for you, Edson Arantes do Nascimiento, in your words, who is Pelé?Delighted, it’s me (Serie). Everyone forgot about Edson, but this is me, Pelé (Serie). No one remembers Edson, but it is Edson who pays the bills, who suffers, who cries … Pelé is the one who gets all the fame and tributes. Pelé is a son of God that he put on Earth and asked me to take care of him….How did your nickname come about?My father played for Bauru Atlético and there was a goalkeeper named Bilé. He was my father’s rival. And the boys, to piss me off, called me Bilé, which later led to Pelé, and I fought with them because I didn’t like it. And you know that when you don’t like a nickname, you end up staying. If it wasn’t for those kids in Bauru, Edson would never have been Pele.When did you realize you would be great in soccer?I never imagined that it would be one of the greats. I swear. I remember when the president of Santos called my father when I was little. I thought it was a joke. He was 13 or 14 years old and was not a starter at Bauru. In the end they took me to do the test at the Santos and I was approved. I thought I was dreaming. There are things from that day that I remember as if it were today… I remember my father taking me to the bus station. It seemed like something from another planet, but today the players go on a private jet. How’s life… What is the goal you remember every day on the pillow?Undoubtedly, the goals that I do not forget are those of the 1958 World Cup. I had not even turned 18! He was the youngest player in the World Cup and Brazil had never won the tournament. I also remember a lot of the thousandth goal. It wasn’t a World Cup, it wasn’t worth anything, but it made me shake my legs even though I was already a veteran player. I do not know if I stay with the first goal of 1958 or if with goal 1,000. Racism | “Against Argentina they already called us ‘monkeys’, but nobody found out” “I’m better now and the only thing I can’t do is ride a bicycle”center_img Is being a footballer today easier or more difficult than before?Much more difficult. In my time I think we had more freedom. It gave us time to stop the ball. Not now. Before they played with and for the ball, now they only want to destroy. Who pays to go to football does not pay to see defense. We gave more spectacle than current football. But it is a very big difference.They say you are depressed from all the physical and health problems you have had in recent years …I think there is a big misunderstanding there. Because after hip and femur surgeries, when I was going to try to train or make an announcement, I had to stop. People started to worry and I appreciate that. But they have invented that I am depressed. I came here by walker, but the only thing I don’t do today is ride a bike. I preferred to be walking normally, without a walker, training from time to time, playing soccer. But, thank God, I am much better, I am recovering.What do you think of the cases of racism that are happening in football?The only thing that has changed is that these cases are now coming to light. Before, a player would tell you a silly thing and it would be there. It happened when we were going to play in Europe. Also against Argentina, who called us monkeys and chimpanzees. But before, no one found out and there was no scandal. After Pelé, who is the soccer player that you liked the most to see play?It would be unfair for me to say one and forget the others. There were players I saw and said, “I want to learn how to do it the same.” I wanted to be like my father, who has the record for leading goals in one game: five. This is Dondinho’s record that Pelé was unable to beat. In front of the goal, I broke all records. But five heads goals …If you played today, what would your career have been like?I think it would not change anything. One of the biggest concerns of my entire career was taking care of my fitness more than anyone.last_img read more
