first_imgThe best news for him Tottenham is undoubtedly that the Leipzig only win by the minimum in the New White Hart Lane. Tremendous bath from Nagelsmann to spurs from Jose Mourinho, who had a very depleted team, yes, for the injuries of Kane and Son. The German coach, who is leading the revolution of his in the Bundesliga, He left his letter of introduction in London to the runner-up in Europe with a fresh, offensive and very attractive style for the viewer. That led them, rounding the game hour, to a Werner pass that Laimer tried to control inside the area, but Davies, who had gone through revolutions, overwhelmed him clearly. From eleven meters, the ‘11’ of Leipzig did not forgive. Practically on the next play it was also he who let a ball pass to Schick with a lot of class, but this one, which finished off the first touch, was not able to overcome Lloris, who held his own.He was about to tie Lo Celso with a shot to the post in a direct free, and they even squeezed the Londoners during the last minutes, but the truth is that the push came more from the heart than from good football, and Leipzig, which is already waiting for them in Germany, was able to contain its connections.

The response of the spurs after the Portuguese talk in the locker room, but the truth is that beyond an isolated occasion of Lucas Moura the Germans maintained dominion.

Zidane the infallible

first_imgA trail of victimsThat explains why he has conquered, successively, the Eleventh (in Milan against Atleti), the Twelfth (in Cardiff before Juventus) and the Thirteenth (against Liverpool of Klopp in Kiev). And watch the list of victims. In their first course they fell Naples, the Wolfsburg and, curious, the City (then trained by Pellegrini). In the second they went through the box Naples, the Bayern and the Athletic. And in the third consecutive one he was not going anymore. In the second round, the knee PSG, in quarters the Juventus and in semis, Bayern Munich. As Sterling told AS “Zidane’s thing is not flower, but method.” The fans are entrusted to Zinedine … Zidane is he Burning nail to which Madrid is clinging in its eagerness to rescue the smile before the imminent visit of the Guardiola City (Bernabéu, 9:00 pm). When the Champions League round of 16 draw was held in December, the fans looked forward to the crossing with the citizen. By then they had already taken off United in the fight for the Premier and Guardiola seemed to show symptoms of exhaustion. Madrid came from making a great game against PSG at the Bernabéu and winning in Bruges with solvency (1-3), with goals from Vinicius, Rodrygo and Modric. It seemed very feasible to eliminate the Guardiola Team, what He always has an emotional pulse with Real Madrid since his time as a Barça player, increased rivalry after his time as coach culé.But the reaction of the City (it has the Premier lost, but it has consolidated in the second position) and its last good matches contrast with the five points that Madrid has left in the League against Celta and Levante, apart from dragging the wound of elimination collects before the Real in the Paseo de La Castellana. But those clouds over the Bernabéu on the eve of the great duel with the City they find a ray of light full of hope watching the trajectory of Zidane in the maximum continental competition. He already won it as a player in Glasgow (the Ninth and his legendary magic volley) and as an assistant to Ancelotti (the Tenth!), But as first coach he has been infallible. He has directed the whites in nine qualifiers and has won them all. Without failure.last_img read more

“Griezmann’s first year reminds me of Coutinho”

first_imgFormer FC Barcelona player Rivaldo said on Thursday that the Frenchman Antoine Griezmann should raise his level and his commitment in his first year as a Blaugrana, as it reminds him of what his compatriot Philippe Coutinho lived, now on loan to Bayern Munich after failing to win at the Camp Nou.“A greater impact was expected from a world champion well adapted to Spanish football, especially this season in which Coutinho himself is no longer there, that neither is Suárez or that Dembélé does not play due to injury. His first season reminds me of Coutinho, “he said in statements provided by Betfair.However, he believes that “he can still make a difference” in the eventual absence of Messi. “We must wait for him to adapt a little more to Barcelona, ​​its style and tactical system. It has quality to spare to perform at a good level,” he argued.“Griezmann has to commit a little more to really achieve his best football and become a decisive player in Setien’s plans,” said the bookmaker ambassador.

That should be your ultimate challenge. A way to show your personality as a player, “he said.“I hope that his experience in the Bundesliga has made him wake up and realize the reality. That Barcelona could be the ideal place for him, to shine once and for all in European football. I still believe in his abilities, but it will also depend a lot of his mental strength and what he wants to demonstrate to his critics, “he said.As for the striker Martin Braithwaite, signed after the winter market by the long-term injury of Ousmane Dembélé, he believes that he will soon be “forgotten” as soon as the Frenchman recovers, or before, the Uruguayan Luis Suárez.“As soon as Suarez recovers and if next season Coutinho is given an opportunity, I think that may lead them to forget him. Because, in addition, better players will come and he may not have the same opportunities to compete as now, to try to have a important role in Setien’s plans, “he concluded.last_img read more

Ramos has to make a great effort and represent his national team so that he can beat my record. Perhaps, the conditions have been in his favor due to the possibility of his participation in the Euro, but now the conditions are in my favor due to his postponement to next year, in addition to the stoppage of the international agenda of the national teams, This will stop him and will make me keep this record for a longer time, since he needs to play 17 games to match my record. “ Ahmed Hassan, Former player of the Turkish Beşiktaş and Belgian Anderlecht, he gave an interview to this newspaper in which “He urged everyone to follow both the instructions of the health foundations and the WHO to control the spread of the coronavirus.” Ahmed Hassan declared that “he is a Real Madrid player and that Real Madrid is his favorite team in La Liga.” Regarding the second stage of Zidane he said: “He was a legendary player and he is a great coach, who was able to achieve many great achievements and titles in his first stage, but he is currently going through the team rebuilding stage, of course there are so many differences between the two stages, but the most outstanding is to lose Cristiano Ronaldo, who was his first star.

The former Egyptian midfielder had his opinion on the determination of the champions in case of ending the season: “there are many leagues were about to end as the Premier. Liverpool leads the table by 25 points advantage to Manchester City, so his fans hope to lift the title after thirty years of absence, but as it is known, ascents and descents have to be determined, In this case, neither team can be given as champion, nor who goes up and who goes down until the end of the season. “last_img read more

Inter shuffles 4 Barça names for the Lautaro operation

first_imgHowever, this economic crisis, together with the endless controversies the club is going through, could make Barcelona unable to afford such a high payment, so Inter Milan, In this case, you would have the pan by the handle when it comes to trading. The Italian club has no technical needs to sell to the Argentine, who makes an excellent match with Romelu Lukaku, and Antonio Conte explained to the board of Zhang that you need to fulfill your objectives. A series* Data updated as of April 16, 2020 The Catalan club is the only one that has yet set its eyes on Lautaro Martínez.

Suarez. 10 The soccer market may take a turn in the coming months due to the coronavirus crisis. That will make many teams look to barter footballers instead of signings, and those who launch for a large transfer are controlled to offer stratospheric amounts. As indicated La Gazzetta dello Sportthis is something that could happen in the Barcelona. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of April 16, 2020 Now, an important economic injection or the exchange with two soccer players in between could serve to sit down to negotiate. Leaving aside Arturo vidal, who would consider hiring in a different operation, would look for a replacement of guarantees such as Antoine Griezmann, or failing that, two young but important players travel to Italy. Four key names are shuffled, among which are Nelson Semedo, Arthur Melo, Carles Aleñà and Marc Cucurella.Arthur, impossibleIn the case of Arthur would be the biggest complication Since the Brazilian is considered non-transferable in the current and future project in the Barça club.In fact, according to what the newspaper AS, Barcelona already has transferred to Inter Milan and other interested teams that the international midfielder for Brazil is not for sale nor will it enter into any exchange operation for other players.In addition, the player seems involved with the Barça project and in recent days he showed his Catalan classes in public.Three left for negotiationsSemedo does have the transfer poster, Aleñà has been transferred to Betis due to the overbooking of midfielders and Cucurella, after being repurchased, is shining in its transfer to Getafe.We will have to see how events unfold and at what price Barcelona is willing to close the deal now that austerity times are expected. What is clear is that it will be difficult to find an attacker of your stature (16 goals and 4 assists in 31 games) somewhere else and where they don’t have to compete with other clubs for their transfer. Meanwhile, his environment says he wants to play alongside Leo MessiTherefore, the footballer’s will will be key for Inter when making a decision, since keeping him unhappy will be difficult, something that did not happen long ago with Mauro Icardi.last_img read more

The conquest of normality

first_imgThe significance of the current situation represents an unprecedented challenge for the world. Football attends the moment with uncertainty, Threatened like all activities by the collective instability and economic fragility that the pandemic will leave. While debating between different return alternatives, without a clear way out yet, the need to know what tomorrow will be like and what role it can play in social reconstruction emerges.No one knows how or when football will return as we all know it, with crowds crowding stadiums, but there seems to be a common consensus on its restorative qualities. “The day a game is played with people in the stadiums the message will be ‘we are back.’ The recovery of football will bring us a sense of normality, as now its absence places us in an exceptional situation “, explains Jorge Valdano. The Argentine writer Eduardo Sacheri, whose literary production is infused with football references (‘Waiting for Tito and other football stories ‘,’ The life we ​​think ‘…), also anticipates its primary function: “Like many other cultural tools, soccer transports what human beings deposit in it. It carries with it those possibilities of translating into a simple, democratic and playful activity the emotions and thoughts that for each human being are more difficult to manage within. When he returns he will have his necessary and desirable place in the resumption of our sociocultural practices. “ Manuel Vilas, finalist of the Planeta Prize 2019 for his novel ‘Alegría’ expresses himself under this same criterion. “Soccer is going to be decisive because it is going to re-socialize people and, now that we are distancing ourselves, it will make us lose our fear of others. It is synonymous with freedom and a desire to be with others. It will be a fearless feeling again, “ consider the Aragonese author. “It will be one of the great conquests of normality, it will articulate coexistence and will raise awareness that the crisis has been overcome “, Luis García Montero, poet, essayist and, since July 2018, director of the Instituto Cervantes, who shares his football enthusiasm between Real Madrid and Granada, subscribes. From another perspective, Luis Landero, an Extremaduran novelist and another well-known Madrid fan, highlights the recreational aspect of football: “There is no need to ask for political, social values ​​… It is a fantasy that we attend with always childish eyes. There is something innocent in every fan, and that innocence is not and should not be at the service of anything, it is pure playful pleasure. ” “His return will be therapeutic and will provide us with a much-needed distraction.” Ratifies Franklin Foer, journalist for the American media The Atlantic and author of the book “The world on a ball: globalization through football”, published in 2004. “The coronavirus has exposed all the errors of neoliberalism. The defense of the public and the authority of the state seem fundamental to me. Unfortunately I think that the human being has little arrangement, although I do think that the economic contraction will affect the players, teams and televisions, “reflects García Montero. Aware of the peculiarities of the market, Valdano’s forecasts point to the same trend.” The situation will make the industry more cautious due to financial stress. Few have cash and without cash you are nobody. I have a feeling that Neymar’s 222 million is going to be a record for many years, “ the former Argentine soccer player predicts.The harshness of the health crisis and the economic consequences that follow from it put football at a crossroads. When you raise the blind, you will be affected by the restlessness and precariousness that traps the world. The dilemma raises a question to which some light can be added, but which only time will eventually clear up. Will football continue to occupy a notable position in the order of human priorities? “Soccer will be decisive because it will re-socialize people” “It will raise awareness that the crisis has been overcome”center_img Luis García Montero Economic depressionIn his famous work, as the title indicates, Foer describes the globalization process from the expansion of soccer. Different thinkers and economists presage a crisis of the neoliberal model, but the American writer does not see that this possible reality is transferred to football. “It will never self-regulate to reduce grotesque wages and redistribute profits among clubs. If governments wanted to tame the soccer economy, corruption, which is the master narrative of our times, should be investigated,” he says from a pessimistic position. “It will not reform to become something more pure,” he predicts. The same hopeless tone is used by Landero: Hopefully a little bit of freedom from money will be released and there will be green shoots of romanticism, or at least common sense or decorum. But I’m afraid that, bad as well, everything will remain more or less the same. “There are those who offer the reason for this discouragement.” The fan approaches the game with the dose of ingenuity and candor typical of children in the face of what they marvel at. . And with the same lack of critical sense of children. That is why professional football can afford the doses of irregularities, improvisations and embezzlement with which it moves, “says Sacheri.

He was at dwelling struggling, particularly the primary two weeks of the state of alarm. There have been many deaths, many infections and he was following the information all day and each worse. I had a tough time discovering the need to do my each day routines. Surrounded by such misfortune, he had no power to do issues. From there, in the future I spoke to my crew and mentioned: now we have to do one thing. We noticed completely different choices and we discovered the Pink Cross Responds. I contacted Pau, who had the identical concern as me. We understood that it was alternative to attempt to unite nationwide and worldwide sport within the face of the second we’re struggling. The response from the sports activities world has been unbelievable. I feel that each one Spaniards should be grateful. We have now contributed a grain of sand from the world of sports activities to attempt to make this misfortune have the least affect attainable, understanding that it’s irreparable in lots of instances.Pau, do you assume that sport, life, would be the identical after this state of affairs that now we have needed to dwell?Pau Gasol. Many issues will change from one grade to a different. This should carry, and I feel it’s constructive, everlasting adjustments in our manner of seeing and doing issues to be ready for a disaster just like the one we’re experiencing. Fearless, with the teachings realized. We should have a nationwide well being system ready to unravel a disaster like this. There can’t be this state of disinformation, such an enormous and drastic break within the face of a virus. I hope that the communication system on the worldwide stage between organizations and medical facilities can be far more clear, extra quick, and extra coordinated. What makes me pleased with the initiative that now we have launched with Rafa and with Spanish sport is that it’s a coordinated, united effort … One will help individually, however it’s higher to do it collectively, leaving apart any distinction or competitors. So I additionally applaud the media that you’re becoming a member of this philosophy and this manner of doing. These are issues that I hope will stay. On March 26, Rafael Nadal and Pau Gasol launched the #NuestraMejorVictoria marketing campaign. The target is to lift funds for the RESPONDE Pink Cross plan. It seeks to offer help to 1.three million folks, with a set of 11 million euros, via a complete motion to fight the coronavirus pandemic: reduction, well being, social inclusion, employment, training and the atmosphere.

For seven uninterrupted hours, a gaggle of journalists spoke electronically with fifteen top-level athletes, together with Rafa Nadal and Pau Gasol, all of whom have been confined to their properties.The next is an excerpt from the dialog held with Nadal and Gasol by the administrators of the 4 newspapers concerned (Juancho Gallardo, from Marca; Santi Nolla, from Mundo Deportivo; Ernest Folch, from Sport, and Vicente Jiménez, from AS). Two of the very best Spanish athletes in historical past replicate on the way forward for mass sport, their future as professionals and their considerations about their exercise and the world that awaits us.From prime to backside and from left to proper, Vicente Jiménez, director of AS; Rafael Nadal; Santi Nolla, director of Mundo Deportivo; Juancho Gallardo, Model Director; Pau Gasol, and Ernest Folch, director of Sport, in the course of the videoconference held final Friday. R. N. I don’t wish to assume very long run, as a result of stuff you by no means understand how are going to occur. It’s a very fundamental precept of mine. I take a look at the quick and medium, however not the long run. I don’t like. To return to a totally regular exercise we should discover a vaccine or one thing to treatment the virus, which we want time for. Each Pau, who’s in a interval of harm, and I are aged. All of the elongated stops in time hurt us particularly. It hurts us to not compete and not prepare. A physique like mine, which is punished, has not touched a tennis racket for a month and a half. For me it is vitally dangerous. When my arm hits a ball once more, it is going to harm. My wrist goes to harm, my elbow goes to harm … Whenever you stand for a very long time, the chance of harm on the lap is way higher than whenever you preserve an exercise. If I may prepare tennis, even half an hour a day, to train the muscle groups of tennis, it could be an ideal advance for my physique to be much less rusty once I want it. The priority exists in my case. As a result of ultimately the physique wants exercise. Whenever you cease the physique in a drastic manner, it’s tough, in punished our bodies like mine, to begin them up once more. The chance in a sophisticated age is greater.P. G. I completely agree with Rafa. Though he mentioned that we’re each aged, I’m just a little older than him. I’ve been a yr and virtually two months virtually with out enjoying. My thought was to arrange for and play the Tokyo Video games this summer season. That has modified, and the uncertainty proper now could be nice. The one factor I concentrate on is my restoration, on a daily foundation. However it’s clear that each one this has an impact once we can resume exercise, particularly in our bodies like ours, with the bags they carry. Once I begin on a basketball court docket, my foot will not be going to harm, my hip, again, shoulder, knee, every little thing goes to harm. There’s speak that, for instance, the NBA gamers affiliation is asking for no less than three or 4 weeks to return, to have the ability to begin once more and put together the our bodies. In fact, this break will have an impact, in some instances higher, in different instances much less, however in our case it’s evident that it’ll. It can value, after all it is going to value.Exterior of the sporty facet, what are you killing time for? What do you miss probably the most? What do you need to do probably the most?R. N. What I miss probably the most is the contact with folks, greater than enjoying tennis. I really feel like going to coach, sure, I really feel like competing, sure, however up to a degree. Proper now, I, a minimum of, have internalized the issue rather a lot and since I don’t see a fast resolution, I’m not at that second wanting ahead to competing. No, I’m at a special time. I personally have an extended option to go to compete once more. I’m at a time when my hope is to have the ability to see my entire household once more, to see my pals once more, to exit to have a celebration, I don’t know …, to exit to sea to swim for some time, that’s, to have the ability to have the sensation of freedom, with the ability to hug folks. However nicely, though there are issues which can be going to alter sooner or later, I do have faith that when there’s a resolution, issues can be comparable once more. I don’t see a future with out with the ability to hug you with folks. Till the situation is resolved, we have to be extraordinarily cautious and we have to be very accountable. Very tough occasions are approaching many points. At an financial stage we’re going to endure rather a lot, in all sectors, however particularly in tourism. The affect goes to be devastating for a lot of and it’s important to be sturdy. I additionally dedicate myself to the academy and another issues that I’ve. It’s time to keep lively and keep awake for what might come.P. G. What I miss probably the most is having freedom of determination, with the ability to journey, with the ability to see, with the ability to exit, with the ability to hug … Above all, to the household, to be with my grandparents, with my dad and mom, with my brothers, with my nephews, to have the ability to be with them and hug them. Proper now I can’t transfer, I can’t get on a airplane, I’m within the distance and that makes you endure. However you additionally must be accountable for this situation and for this virus, which is so contagious and doing a lot injury. What I attempt to do throughout this time, aside from coaching and rehabilitation, is to be proactive. It’s time to be modern, to arrange for what might come. And lift consciousness. I’ve carried out Instagram Lives with folks from completely different sectors, with followers, to lift consciousness. I file movies of wholesome habits, which is what I do with our basis, in order that this doesn’t imply progress within the charges of childhood weight problems in our nation. Effectively, I attempt to be helpful in a situation as irritating because the one we’re going via. Nadal Gasol Rafa Nadal and Pau Gasol.DAILY AS There’s a debate on the desk frequent to all sports activities: enjoying with out an viewers. You’re two gamers who feed on the power of the followers. How will you are feeling if it’s important to play behind closed doorways?P. G. We’re experiencing an unprecedented situation and it have to be valued as a transition. It’s clear that the athlete loves the connection and the power transmitted by the general public, for us it’s a nice motivation and a supply of gasoline. However to return to exercise, every sport has to discover a secure, safe and modern option to resume that exercise progressively. The situation requires this sort of measures, which aren’t supreme, as a result of we might all wish to play with the pavilion or the stadium full, as for thus a few years, however till now we have the enough means to ensure the security and well being of the folks , the hobbyist, the employees … If there may be an intermediate step, then welcome. You need to worth it and welcome it.R. N. I feed on that reference to the general public, as a result of it raises your adrenaline and helps you elevate your stage of play. What occurs is that it’s a vital second and it’s important to be accountable and according to the selections which can be going to be made. I feel it’s one factor to coach and one other to compete. In tennis I don’t see the issue of coaching with one other skilled. However the actuality right now is that at this second it isn’t a precedence for me or for anybody. The precedence, earlier than anything, is to sort out the well being disaster. Coaching wouldn’t be an issue, however competing may be very tough in tennis. Hopefully we will compete, even with out an viewers. However I feel it’s time to be accountable and constant. I don’t see how we will journey every week to a special nation. As a result of, even when we performed with out an viewers, ours is a really completely different sport to golf, for instance, the place there may be far more house. To play a Grand Slam we’re 128 male gamers, 128 feminine gamers, plus all their groups and doubles. Though there isn’t a public, ultimately we’re very involved. We can be all these folks, plus all of the providers which can be wanted. On the subject of coaching, I feel sports activities ought to be differentiated. Simply as it’s important to differentiate by neighborhood, by area, on the subject of understanding the insecurity. To compete once more, our sport is probably probably the most difficult. We’re transferring each week and now we have to maneuver lots of people. I’m delighted to play with out an viewers, though it isn’t one thing that I like, however, from what I see, though the situation is bettering, I don’t assume it’s prudent to play once more for a time period. “What I miss probably the most is freedom and embracing” “I can play with out an viewers, however it isn’t prudent but” How are your days? How is your confinement?R. N. I fall asleep a lot later than common. I attempt to do two bodily work periods, one within the morning and one within the afternoon. I attempt to be very conscious of all of the issues which can be taking place. Daily I’ve one thing. Some time in the past I used to be in a gathering with Djokovic, Federer and the president of the ATP. Earlier than, I’ve additionally been speaking electronically with my basis. The academy is a good concern and occupation. There are numerous individuals who work there, many people who find themselves struggling and who fear me.
