The Leganés, accustomed to the irregular beginnings of the year

first_imgTwelve months before, in 2018, the beginning of the year was, with Garitano, also irregular. It started well, with triumph against Real Sociedad (1-0), but then it became a small secarral of a defeat (against Betis, 3-2) and a draw (against Alavés, 2-2) that made up for the final triumph against Espanyol (3-2) and, above all, the epic copera to eliminate Real Madrid despite losing 0-1 in Butarque. The famous ‘Pepinazo’ (1-2 at the Bernabéu) occurred on January 24 of that 2018.Nothing to do that with the black, very black beginning of 2017 that the Leganés drew in his premiere in the elite. Then the pepineros did not win any of their four games in the month of January: they fell against Betis (2-0) and Celta (0-2), in addition to drawing against Athletic (0-0) and Alavés (2-2). That streak, inserted in the middle of a major of 13 consecutive straight games without winning, was settled already in February, when the Leganés he beat Deportivo (4-0), and began to lay the foundations of his first stay in the elite, that now faced by Aguirre for 2020. The Leganés maintains a love-hate relationship with the beginning of the year since he is a team of First division. The Blue and Whites almost always star in beginnings to trompicones, which combine important triumphs, with notable stumbling blocks. For this 2020 that begins now, those of Javier Aguirre They cannot afford to repeat the trend, more according to the calendar ahead of them in the League: Valladolid, Getafe and Atlético de Madrid.Thus, for example (and taking into account only the regularity tournament matches) andl Leganés in 2019 started the year with tears (defeat 1-0 against Espanyol) and concluded with rage (defeat 3-1 against Barça with the famous knee of Suárez to Cuéllar) and impotence (2-2 against Eibar with a comeback). In between, a vital victory against Huesca (1-0) and the elimination takes on Real Madrid in which the de Pellegrin they managed to knock down the targets in Butarque.last_img read more

Nadal – Kyrgios: a fight against the devil in hell

first_img“Rafa is used to it. It’s going to be a bit like the Davis Cup. He additionally has his viewers and could be very pricey right here.. Absolutely he could have the respect of the Australian followers. We rely on him to help Kyrgios extra, however it’s one thing that won’t have an effect on him, he could have folks in his favor in some sector. ” Carlos Moyá, coach stated it Nadal in the earlier eighth conflict between the Balearic and Australian Nick Kyrgios, which for the first time will play at residence.The morbid traditional returns seven months after the final duel that was performed in the second spherical of Wimbledon, with a labored victory of the world primary. There they began their conferences in 2014 and can reside a new chapter at the moment (09:00, Eurosport) in the eighths of the Australian Open. The steadiness helps Nadal (4-3), the reverse of the favor of some followers who went loopy with Nick’s present final Saturday against Khachanov.They characterize two methods of understanding tennis. Nadal is self-management, tradition of effort, work and expertise. Kyrgios, anarchy, inspiration, innate high quality and, extra typically than it ought to, indiscipline. That’s the reason they collide, though every in their very own method flowers are thrown. “Taking part in against certainly one of the finest on the central court docket in your house is nice. It will likely be one other bodily battle. Nothing is simple against him. He had a comparatively routine recreation (against Carreño), so it can really feel good. I’m wanting ahead to the time. For that recreation, I assume ”, stated the Canberra participant, 24 years outdated and 26th of the world. “Kyrgios is a nice expertise, he has certainly one of the finest companies in the world and selection in each method. It’s able to appearing at a very excessive degree. When he performs good tennis and reveals ardour, it’s optimistic for our circuit. The gamers that make it greater are good for this sport, ” says the winner of the 19 Grand Slams.And the way do you play an unpredictable man like Kyrgios, able to the finest and the worst? “It’s important to be centered. It can be crucial that Rafa’s service works. Against Carreño was excellent and against Delbonis, too. That may let you deal with the video games with extra peace of thoughts, ”says Moyá, who insists on the want for his pupil to “reap the benefits of the few alternatives he has”. “It should be tremendous. We now have the instance of Acapulco final yr, the place I used to be being superior however had 10 break balls and solely transformed one. He didn’t have any and in the tie-break he received. In Wimbledon, Rafa scored two. In the finish, these matches are selected three factors, ”Moyá analyzes. Wild Factor desires to be the first Australian to win Nadal in Melbourne from Lleyton Hewitt in the third spherical of 2005. The previous participant and captain of the Davis Cup and ATP Cup nationwide group helps and encourages from the stands the wayward Nicholas Hilmy Kyrgios. It’s certainly one of the noisy followers who will roar at the moment at the Rod Laver Enviornment. A devil in his boiler.Nadal and Kyrgios: good strangersNadal and Kyrgios already know one another effectively on the observe, though every time they’re requested in the event that they like them outdoors of it, the very first thing they are saying is that they don’t know something about one another. “I have no idea. I don’t know him personally to have a clear opinion. It’s clear, in fact, that when he does issues that aren’t good, I don’t prefer it, ”stated the Balearic after successful Carreño on Saturday. A couple of hours later the Australian was pulled from the tongue by telling him what he had stated about him who was going to be his subsequent opponent, and he answered naturally. “I actually don’t know Rafa. I’ve by no means dated him or something like that. So I don’t understand how it’s. I don’t dislike. I by no means stated something as a result of I don’t know him in any respect. As a tennis participant it’s hell. As a individual I don’t know him, however he positive is ok. ”The reality is that they’ve by no means had a relationship past the events or educated collectively as a result of they’ve a very totally different idea of each day work.. The Spaniard is crushed in classes of an hour and a half, and the aussie barely touches for 30 minutes. As well as, Kyrgios provoked Nadal a number of occasions on social networks and a few days in the past he imitated him throughout a combined doubles match with Anisimova, his good pal. Rafa took it with philosophy: “I don’t care, I’m right here to play tennis. If it was enjoyable, it’s tremendous. ”last_img read more

Miguel Ángel Gómez: “We have not requested the transfer of Reinier”

first_imgDespite this, the sports director said that “we have remnants for, if the coach sees fit, we sign another player or there is another market situation.” The signing of Sekou Gassama and his assignment to Fuenlabrada was also known today and the head of the sports field compared his situation to that of “Marcos André or Fede San Emeterio” and denied that the club has requested the transfer of Reinier: “Not today, but I think it’s an excellent player. Good players are always at the table, another thing is that they can arrive. I don’t think it’s possible.” and also did not rule out that there are more exits. Miguel Ángel Gómez was happy for the arrival of Hatem Ben Arfa, a player he tried to sign in his Sevilla stage as well. The sports director of Real Valladolid explained that “Talk about throwing a coin in the air watching the football he has. The doubts about his physical condition are normal and we have to assume them, but we have many examples of players who have gone through these circumstances and then have done well” and said that “he has not had any major injuries in recent years, he transmits a tremendous illusion to both the coach and me and he is a football sick, arrives with great enthusiasm and does not think of anything other than helping. He wants to show in the League that still has a lot of football and we took advantage of that because at another time it would be unattainable. “The sports director acknowledged that “we proposed (to Ben Arfa) a possibility to extend the contract, to make a longer one, but because of his economic profile, he has made a huge effort. He makes a huge commitment to be here and that’s why he wants to be the owner of his future when the end of the season comes and we have to accept it “ and said that “Sergio seems to be a differential player, a very special footballer, because of his weight and what he means. He is very excited about him.” Gómez denied, despite the fact that Caro was registered only one day before the game against Osasuna and that from the club several people have sent the message that there was no money, that there have been pecunary problems to sign, stating: “Today we had no problem registering “and all this with the memory that several players were not registered until the eve of the second day of the League.last_img read more

Leipzig played against Tottenham with two different shirts

first_imgRB Leipzig won at home yesterday at Tottenham (0-1) in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League, but the meeting left a curious anecdote that concerns the German team. And is that during the first part of the game there were three players who jumped into the field with a different shirt than their teammates. Nkunku, Klostermann and Werner played throughout the first part with the advertising of the blank shirt, when the rest of the headlines wore the Red Bull logo with the bulls in red and the background circle in yellow. Manu, did you notice the different kits that two Leipzig players were wearing (white outlined Red Bull sponsor logo) compared to the remainder (fully colored in Red Bull sponsor logo). pic.twitter.com/JF7wZhR1JD– Mike (@VictoriaGooner) February 19, 2020Apparently, this was because not all the boxes of the kits were on the bus. Some stayed at the hotel and when opened they were mixed and missing the shirts of the three players mentioned, as the coach said, Julian Nagelsmann, at a press conference.An error that was amended in the second part, in which Nkunku and Werner could be seen with the correct kit resumed in the second half (Apparently they returned to the hotel for the missing boxes). In any case, the regulation does not provide that this practice is prohibited or punishable, So RB Leipzig did nothing wrong.center_img Champions League* Data updated as of February 20, 2020last_img read more

Raúl de Tomás, the main novelty against Atlético

first_imgRaúl de Tomás returns. The forward is the main novelty in the list of summoned for this Sunday’s meeting against Atlético de Madrid. Abelardo has quoted the striker after his feelings are already good and he has recovered from his discomfort in the right adductor. After two absent League matches, against Sevilla (2-2) and Valladolid (2-1), he is back. It is a great news for spanishism because with him, Espanyol adds 1.75 points per game. Without it, only one of six possible ones has been harvested.RDT had been exercising without problems with the group for days and returned to the team at a key moment of the season because Espanyol has run out of room for error. The duel this Sunday against Atletico is crucial to continue relying on permanence and many of the hopes of the blue and white team are placed on the tip. His half scorer is to frame because celebrates somewhat every 90 minutes (In his four games with Espanyol he has signed four goals). Everything indicates that RDT will start against Atlético and it will be the second time he faces the first rojiblanco team. His only duel, to date, was with Rayo Vallecano the 2018-19 season in Vallecas and Cholo Simeone’s team won 0-1 thanks to Griezmann’s goal. But It is not the only novelty on the list because, regarding Europa League’s duel last Thursday against Wolverhampton, Iturraspe, Javi López, Bernardo and Dídac also return and David López are sanctioned (He saw two yellows last day against Valladolid) and Pol Lozano (He was expelled with the subsidiary before La Nucía), the injured Marc Roca and, by technical decision, Pipa, Naldo and Ferreyra. The complete list of summoned is formed by Andrés Prieto, Pedrosa, Víctor Sánchez, Wu Lei, Darder, Raúl de Tomás, Calleri, Diego López, Melendo, Javi López, Dídac, Cabrera, Bernardo, Vargas, Embarba, Calero and Víctor Gómez.last_img read more

Sergio Pellicer: “In Malaga there is a highway for the youth squads”

first_imgPellicer, Víctor Fernández, Fernando Vázquez … the house technicians also often come to the rescue in situations of greatest need.For coaches who come up from a subsidiary, especially in a club as large as Malaga, they are due to situations that have occurred, economic or sports. We have to know where we were, how we got there and what we want to do. We know the whole club, the people know us, and the only truth is to work with common sense and do your best, nothing more. Be transparent in everything. Sometimes it is much easier than people think.One of the debates of the moment is carried out by two from below, Luis Muñoz and Keidi Bare.All good players can play together. Luis’s best conditions are as a midfielder. When Keidi was recovered he played against Las Palmas. Against Zaragoza, due to the context of the game, we thought that the situation could be better like this. Keidi is training stronger even than before and is a more important player for us. I am clear that they are going to play together. Luis Muñoz has taken a step forward and is earning it, but they can play together depending. they will all be important. Blessed problem.The renewal of Luis Muñoz does not seem easy. Do you think it would be a significant loss for the club if you end up leaving?The contractual issue must be resolved by the directive with the player himself. I repeat again that the best scenario for the players who are from the house is to be here. The rush I think sometimes are bad advisers. We know how the world of soccer works. The players are professionals and if something important appears it will be complicated, but I think Luis and the rest of the youth squads are very involved with the club and I always want to be optimistic.With all this talking about the salary limit and the problems that lie ahead in summer, do you think there is a future in Malaga?We are optimistic. Malaga is a very big club. Since José María (the judicial administrator) has arrived, he has transmitted a lot of tranquility. And everyone knows the situation we are in. But we can not think of July 31, but on Saturday, in sports. We know there are 11 finals left and a long way to go. If we improve the present, the future will be much better.How is José María Muñoz, the judicial administrator?Very good. We have had two meetings with him. He came to the game (against Zaragoza) and went to congratulate us despite the defeat for a job well done. And it has given us calm. She is a person who looks very calm and must have her times. A football club is not an ordinary company. We feel very calm with what he has transmitted to us and that in the end is transmitted. Everything that comes from outside, that there is transparency and that there is tranquility, influences the day to day.That institutional tranquility was necessary.Every week, especially since my arrival, was to talk about everything except soccer. That, in the end, seems not, but it is transmitted to the protagonists, the most important, who are the players. The fan, who arrives on Sunday, wants his team to win and everything that has happened during the week, extra sports news, all he does is distract. In the last two games we have seen a dedicated stadium. The fans have always been there and the players notice it. The other day it was a shame because we had a great game. We deserved victory. It is good that the fans are excited, but we have to get the necessary points to maintain the category and rest assured that is the goal.What about Manolo Gaspar, the sports director?Manolo are people of the house. The first day he said to me: “Pelli, as you are, to work.” Often the difficult thing is the common sense and to speak with transparency, with the heart, face to face and soccer. That Manolo does and I do. And then with the players when it comes to signing… we coaches are not here to sign players but to help. That’s what sports management is for. And Manolo knows that we must work hand in hand.Three winter signings. It was not easy under the circumstances.It has a lot of merit for the circumstances that are and for the economic situation that exists. They are bets from the sports management and the players themselves. And you have to thank him for that. It is the best way to send a message to all the people who want to think that they can come here. This has to be seen as a showcase. With all due respect to many teams. Playing in Malaga and before this fans is available to very few in this category. That must be a plus and makes that footballer see more the subject of a passion than the contractual one. That has been the key to Tete, Sergio and now to Aaron.Tete has fallen to his feet …You have had your process. He did not play in Elche and made his debut against Numancia. He started playing. We are not surprised. We already knew him and we knew that he was a player with a great level. He has helped and the team has helped him. It is a total success.The team has improved. Where is Pellicer’s credit?Pellicer’s credit goes to the players. The protagonists are the players.How do you rate the amount of praise you are receiving from your players?Receiving good words is also fine. Praise and criticism have to keep us in balance. We are the same as two months ago. It is much more beautiful to be told how good you are than how bad you are. But we have been in this for many years and we are clear that we must enjoy every minute that we are training. I look, pinch myself and tell myself that we are privileged.I was referring more to the praise of the players …I have always spoken to you with complete sincerity. I have also been a player and the worst thing is that a coach does not tell you the truth. We have always been with the truth ahead and the way of working, the results, seeing that the team is getting comfortable … I have noticed from the first day the affection of the players, of all the people of the club and, above all, from the hobby. We are people of the house and they know that we are going to give everything.Are you worried about Sadiku’s drought?Forwards and goalkeepers are very special cases. Streaks sometimes come without knowing why. He does a very good job in the pressure and at any moment the goal will appear. You must be calm and have no anxiety. This goes on streaks. Every day we work and try to improve. We are not concerned with Armando, nor with Sergio (Buenacasa), who the other day gave ten very good minutes. We trust our forwards and second-line players, who must also contribute a goal, such as Adrián, Tete Morente, now Aarón, Juanpi, Renato … The goal is very important.Saturday comes Okazaki.I could not know him personally and professionally, but I perceive the affection that his colleagues and the people who were here had for him. We wish him all the luck in the world starting on Sunday. We will try to make you feel uncomfortable and that people can congratulate you on your victory and your defeat.Juanpi is going to more.The good soccer player is a good soccer player always, that is not forgotten. All players have moments, but the most important thing is to be calm. The confidence of a player goes with the minutes, but there are players who need their best level. And Juanpi is proving it. Also Adrián, Dani, who is having foot discomfort and is making a great effort every day to be able to compete … We are looking for the best version of all the players. We cannot afford to lose any player along the way. The ego of each one must be kept on the sidelines, the important thing is the team.Are you ready for the next FIFA Virus?We are prepared. We will face it when it comes. It is what there is and we cannot excuse ourselves because it is what has been all season.l. Atypical day with games behind closed doors due to the coronavirus.We are in a situation of uncertainty. Beyond football we want all this to be solved. The main thing is the health of everyone. There should be no panic. We must make decisions We must all go hand in hand and common sense prevails because it is a personal issue, the health of everyone, Then there is the professional issue. Football without an audience is like a play with no one. It is a strange situation. The theme of televisions sets the tone a lot. But we must all go hand in hand for the sake of the show. I hope that all the decisions that are made are so that all this uncertainty that exists at the health level is resolved as soon as possible and that there is tranquility.Is it a better solution to suspend the matches?You have to be very cautious because any opinion, depending on the position you have, can be bad for certain people. If there are closed doors in football, we must assess. Soccer is passion and spectacle. Soccer’s greatest heritage is fans and players. If the fans can’t stand on the field supporting their players, it’s unfair to everyone. The main thing is people’s health. I hope all this is solved.What differences are there between being interim and being ratified?It is exactly the same. At first the interim label was normal. I just thought of the first training, in Ponferradina, then in Fuenlabrada, in continuing to train and enjoying day by day. And I keep doing the same. It is clear that they ratify you and dedicate a video to you as they did with good words towards me, because it fills you with a lot of responsibility and a lot of pride. But I am on alert, and if I used to come to work at seven in the morning, now I come earlier. I see it as a privilege, as a passion, and I have to live it like that. We know what it costs to reach this level and we have to live it as if there was no tomorrow. And that is what we try to do and transmit.Are you facing the opportunity of a lifetime as a coach?On the one hand yes. I have faced it very calmly. I have been in this for many years since I left my house when I was 15 years old as a soccer player. I have not stopped. I have done many laps and as a coach I have gone through all the categories. Although I am new to the category I have experience in other categories. I see it as a natural situation.Did you expect such a situation?I have had several situations like in Logroñés where I trained when I was very young, in Segunda B, in Valencia … but you never expect it because it is a process that must come alone. This football is rabid today and there is a very clear example in a coach who was my partner, Mere, in Fuenlabrada. Soccer has no memory. It is day to day.His goal now is to gain continuity at the helm of Malaga …My coaching staff and I arrived for two games. But we never thought of the second match, always in the first match, against Ponferradina and then against Fuenlabrada. Good results were given and continuity was given. And I keep thinking about the game against Huesca. Being in Malaga is a privilege.How should Sergio Pellicer’s ideal Malaga play?We coaches have to acclimatize. The great protagonists of this are the players. The conditions of the team are what mark you. If you start the season and design the template with the sports director, you can bet on a model. When you arrive mid-season, you have to stop, reflect, observe and act. From there, think about what you think is best to convey to the players. In the subsidiary we were protagonists, we took risks. Here we try to be protagonists, take the least possible risks in some areas, be a fast team in transitions, solid at a defensive level, defend by pressing up … The best thing about a team is that it is not predictable. You have to have variety. People when they see Malaga know what idea we have. We try to press up, when we don’t have the ball we try to be orderly and then in attack try to play in the opposite field and be deep and vertical. Work well on set pieces … A little of everything.What is a professional day like for the current Málaga manager?I get here at seven in the morning, breakfast and I start preparing everything. When we finish training we visualize the training, what we have done, and then we plan what we are going to do the next day. Everything has a great job from the coaching staff. Many times we stay to eat here, depending on each day. The first days of the week are much more intense days. Hours? We do not think about the hours, there are times when we are longer, others less and the most important thing is not to look at the clock. We do the work and when we finish we go home. This is a privilege, we don’t care about the hours.There are youth squads on the roster and eight of them have debuted this season.Málaga has a quarry difficult to find in others due to its quality and competitive level. It is a place where there are opportunities. Here is a highway for the youth squads, but also obstacles. They have to earn it.If Okazaki did not go to Huesca, Antoñín surely would not have exploded and would not be in Granada today.Antoñín is a case whose history is made there. He did not want to start training with the subsidiary and it was we who convinced him. Then he earned it and Victor gave him the opportunity because he saw that he had those conditions. The boy has earned it alone. If he had once decided to go to another club, perhaps he would not have had this possibility. We tried to convince him to stay because we trusted him. And then the previous coach Victor gave him that confidence, due to the circumstances and he earned it on the field. And that is a true reflection of what the guys from below must be.If the forecasts regarding the salary limit for next season are confirmed, it will be necessary to throw away a lot from the quarry.If next season the situation is restructured it is clear that the future will be the players below. The quarry players are there to help and not to assume top-level responsibilities. That’s what professionals are for. The performance of a player every Sunday on the field does not deceive. I do not put a player because he is from the subsidiary or professional. I see performance.Speaking of youth squads, David Larrubia is already at your service on a day-to-day basis, one of the promises that he is most excited about today.He is a different player. It is still a second year youth. He debuted with the subsidiary in the first days. It is the club’s heritage, like many other players. We must take care of it. You still have a lot of growth phase left. Where it has to grow is here. Mermaid songs will come, and haste is a bad adviser. We have high expectations for David in the not too distant future. Because of its characteristics and its mentality. He is training with us and at a very good level. And the companions see it. Green does not fool anyone.Is there a chance that we will see him playing with the first team soon?You have to be very cautious. The opportunities, when they occur, is because we think that the team needs them. We should not put the youth squads because we think it will be the best for them, but because it is the best for the team. The priority is the performance of the team, save the situation. We must be very fair and right now I am being unfair to some players who deserve to play. The performance of the entire group at the training level is being very good. They deserve to play more, but I can only choose eleven and then only three more during the match. There are players who are at a very good level, but they have to wait for their opportunity and they have to understand it.Was it more difficult to make an eleven with the subsidiary or now?The day to day has nothing to do. Now that they talk about the subsidiary I would like to break a spear in their favor now that they are not going well in qualifying. It is a team made with many young people and with a maturity process so that the maximum number of players can leave in the future. There are players who have possibilities, then they will arrive or not. But the quarry players are there to supply the top team. The greatest success of a quarry coach is that when a player rises to the next club echelon, he can compete and compete well. When Antoñín came up and competed, it was our biggest victory. What happens is that we are all very resultista. The work of Málaga’s youth team coaches has much merit.last_img read more

Zidane, Isco’s best gift

first_imgHow Isco’s life has changed in one year. Today blows 28 candles He had plenty of oxygen that he could have lacked last April, which he arrived very touched by the brief adventure of Solari at the head of Real Madrid. Zidane’s return took the china from his shoe and made him walk again in that peculiar way that has made him get up 15 titles in 300 games of white. In 2019-20 Isco went from a boss in love with his football, Lopetegui, to another with whom he did not connect at any time. Less than a month after Solari’s rise to command, before Eibar there was a short circuit after which the Malaga player did not work again. What happened in Ipurua condemned him with the Argentine, who only started him in two Cup games (Melilla and Leganés) until his dismissal. Basically, the ’22’ then wandered between the bench, the stands and the recurring questions about him at press conferences. In summer ZZ insisted the club stay, a request that was understood until the halt by the coronavirus. Isco played 1,304 minutes, the team’s 13th, being in the eleventh on such marked days as against PSG at the Bernabéu, in both Clasicos, in the semifinal and in the final of the Jeddah Super Cup, and against City. His wand recovered the magic and he has continued using it, although with a different touch, in this impasse: showing his most supportive side, along with his partner, actress Sara Sálamo, in the fight against the coronavirus. The 13th in minutes this seasonSolari was fired having given Isco 528 minutes, the 21st in participation of the staff. But on March 11, Zidane reappeared to rescue a very delicate Madrid and, taking advantage of Isco, a weakness of the French. “Those who are here have won a lot. I will not go into what happened between one and the other. I just want to go back to them, work and do things well from this Saturday”, Zizou said, questioned by him, in his presentation.
