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

Broh to Expose Abusers of GOL Assets

first_imgMadam Mary T. Broh, Director General of the General Services Agency (GSA), has vowed to expose and shame all those involved in the constant abuse of government assets.Speaking yesterday at the Ministry of Information’s regular press briefing in Monrovia, Madam Broh said there are people constantly involved in abusing government assets, particularly vehicles and motorcycles.“I will in subsequent days introduce a program in the print and electronic media with wider coverage to expose, name and shame those abusers. “We want the people to stop misusing government assets and this will help reduce government’s expenditures,” she declared.Madam Broh stated that she is currently working along with the Liberia National Police to identify people who abuse and misuse government vehicles, especially during rush hours. She explained, “The misuse and abuse of vehicles and other mobile equipment have increased to an unacceptable level at significant cost to tax-payers.  “Empirical data available to us at the GSA show that the misuse of government vehicles and other mobile equipment is completely out of control and support cost is significantly more than the benefit received by the government.”As the result of such abuse in the past, the GSA boss further disclosed, an initial fleet policy was developed in 2009 to provide guidance to government institutions on the procurement, registration, use, maintenance and management of vehicles for all Ministries, Agencies and Commissions.She emphasized that the fundamental objective of the fleet policy is to provide a strategic framework to reduce capital, maintenance and running costs of the government fleet and mobile equipment while ensuring mobility and operational efficiency to government’s employees.The GSA boss indicated that the fleet policy will help “to create a fleet management structure and allocate responsibilities for the effective monitoring and implementation of various aspects of the policy for the benefit of government.“It will also establish uniform practices for the use of GOL vehicles, project, rental, leased and motor pool vehicles for GOL business and GOL vehicle procurement and disposal.”Vehicle standards will be established that will provide safe, reliable and cost effective vehicles that meet the needs of all Ministries, Agencies and Commissions (MACs). The GSA will optimize fleet utilization practices to right-size the government fleet and ensure proper allocation and use of GOL resources,” Madam Broh announced.The essential component of the fleet management policy currently being implemented by the GSA, alongside several others, encourages vehicle ownership by civil and public servants, she stated.“This component of the fleet management policy allows functionaries of government to purchase vehicles entrusted to their care in line with the depreciation schedule and approved revenue code of Liberia. Once the vehicle devolves to its user, the government ceases to bear responsibility for its maintenance,” she said.Director Broh explained that the aspect of the fleet management, which allows for private ownership of government vehicles, was implemented by successive administrations with ease, until she recently distributed letters to all MACs.Director Broh indicated that in her communication to MACs, she noted that the GSA finds the practice of double dipping unacceptable and must be discontinued for the good of the government.“This communication is part of our effort to support austerity measures aimed at saving the government  desperately needed resources that should be channeled into other priority areas of our overall national development agenda,” added Madam Broh.She threatened to prosecute anyone who unduly burdens the government with the pressure of funding the cost of servicing vehicles already possessed by government officials.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Forget Piers Morgan! Arsenal legend insists it HAS been a successful season

first_imgNigel Winterburn insists this season MUST be seen as a success for Arsenal after their FA Cup triumph.The Gunners thrashed Aston Villa at Wembley on Saturday to lift the trophy for a record 12th time but that has not been enough to appease all the club’s fans, with high-profile follower Piers Morgan among those expressing disappointment that they did not put up a greater fight in the Premier League and Europe.Winterburn, however, has told talkSPORT that it is wrong to downplay their cup victory and says Arsene Wenger and his players should be proud of their efforts this term.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the legendary former defender said: “When you are a player, you want to win trophies and any time you win a trophy, it has to be a successful season, so it is definitely a successful season for them.”“This was an impressive performance against Villa,” he continued. “It was the best I have seen Arsenal play for a while.“I put this down as one of their best performances. When they needed to perform, they really did perform. Every player was eight out of ten or above.“They moved the ball so quickly and they won the ball back quickly. People say Aston Villa were poor, which they were, but Arsenal made them look poor. They overrun them in every department.”last_img read more

Jack Wilshere to make Arsenal first-team return on Sunday, reveals Arsene Wenger

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning to include Jack Wilshere in his squad for Sunday’s trip to Sunderland.Wilshere has not played a single minute for the first team this season after breaking his fibula in August.But the 24-year-old has been back in training since the start of April and is now nearing full fitness after three appearances for the Under-21s.He scored in his most recent outing for the development side, against West Brom U-21s on Monday, and lasted the full 90 minutes.And, while Wenger will not rush Wilshere back for Thursday’s visit of the Baggies, he is ready to consider the midfielder for selection against Sunderland three days later.“He has had no setbacks and is getting better. He will be available after West Brom,” the Frenchman said.“He absorbed well his first obstacle, that means getting games and finally getting 90 minutes.“The positive is that he had no setbacks and as well in every game he was sharper, so that means he has a good fitness base.“Overall the progression now should be normal. He is available for selection – I don’t think for tomorrow – but from the next game on it is a question of do I select him or not?” 1 Jack Wilshere last_img read more

Navy ships, suspected pirates exchange fire

first_img The International Maritime Organization has warned ships to stay away from the Somali coast because of pirate attacks, which surged to 35 last year from two in 2004. On March 15, the U.N. Security Council encouraged naval forces operating off Somalia to take action against suspected piracy. Pirate attacks against aid ships have hindered U.N. efforts to provide relief to the victims of a severe drought in the area. The pirate raids are part of the anarchy wracking Somalia, which has had no effective government since 1991, when warlords ousted a dictatorship and then turned on each other. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

When the suspects began shooting, naval gunners returned fire with mounted machine guns, killing one man and igniting a fire on the vessel. Three suspects were seriously wounded and being treated on one of the Navy ships, Brown told The Associated Press. A Dutch Navy medical team was en route. The suspects’ nationalities were unknown. The Navy boarding teams confiscated an RPG launcher and automatic weapons, the statement said. The Cape St. George, a guided-missile cruiser, and Gonzalez, a guided-missile destroyer, were conducting maritime security operations in the area. They are based in Norfolk, Va. DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Two U.S. Navy warships exchanged gunfire with suspected pirates Saturday off the coast of Somalia, and one suspect was killed and five others were wounded, the navy said. Seven other suspects were taken into custody after the early-morning shootout, said Lt. Cmdr. Charlie Brown, spokesman for the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. No sailors were wounded in the battle, which occurred at about 5:40 a.m. local time, approximately 25 nautical miles off the Somali coast in international waters. The battle started after the USS Cape St. George and USS Gonzalez, which were patrolling as part of a Dutch-led task force, spotted a 30-foot fishing boat towing smaller skiffs and prepared to board and inspect the vessels. last_img read more

Culture, heritage and beauty should make East Donegal a tourism hotspot – Cllr

first_imgThe tourism potential of East Donegal must be maximised in order to boost the local economy and attract visitors, a County Councillor has claimed.Sinn Féin Cllr Gary Doherty said the region is perfectly placed to benefit from increased numbers of tourists coming into Ireland. Cllr Doherty said the new Donegal East Tourism Group which he instigated can be a driving force behind this.Cllr Gary DohertySpeaking today, Cllr Doherty said: “East Donegal is an area of the country that is perfectly positioned to benefit from the increased numbers of tourists coming to Donegal, particularly from mainland Europe, enticed by the attractions of the Wild Atlantic Way. We are a Gateway region to the rest of Donegal, but it is vitally important that we also showcase the many attractions which we ourselves have, and keep some of those tourists in East Donegal. “Our region stretches from the rugged beauty of the Bluestack mountains in the south east to the lush plains of the Laggan Valley in the north. We have a rich history of culture and heritage from the ancient Beltany Stone Circle and the majestic Oakfield Park to the historic Lifford Old Courthouse. With hotels and shopping to match the best in Ireland we have a fantastic product to offer tourists.Oakfield Park in Raphoe.“It is hugely important that the differing sectoral interests in East Donegal work together to maximise what we have to offer and to fulfill our potential as a tourism hotspot. To that end, I am delighted that the Donegal East Tourism group has been established on foot of my motions to both Municipal District and plenary Council last year.“The Donegal East Tourism group has been working proactively since its inception to foster links between the various tourism providers in East Donegal while also working to promote the region as a tourist destination. I want to commend the volunteers, business owners, elected representatives and Donegal County Council for their work in establishing the committee.“However, much work remains to be done, and I would encourage all sectoral and businesses interests in the region to support the efforts of the Donegal East tourism group to promote the region. We are one area of the county that will be particularly susceptible to the effects of Brexit. “The fantastic work being done to bolster our tourism potential can only benefit the region and may serve as a mitigating factor against the negative impact of a potential decrease in visitors and shoppers from the UK,” Cllr Doherty said.Culture, heritage and beauty should make East Donegal a tourism hotspot – Cllr was last modified: November 2nd, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CLLR GARY DOHERTYeast Donegaltourismlast_img read more
