  • Paco: “2020 I ask for calm; we are all tense”

    first_img“I liked Mexican referees. You screwed up on their father and they, on your mother. Nothing was happening.” —How was 2019?–We have had better years in sports and many extra sports complications. It has been to analyze it and that some of the situations that have occurred do not happen again. You can serve as a reference to not relive this.—The goal was to play in the playoff for Christmas. It has not happened.–The Lightning plays well, defends better and, with the remaining games, will give us to get up. You have to make a good second round, after the first has been regular nothing more. It is a sign of maturity not to look for excuses and take responsibility for what we have done.“It’s hard for them to win … Why?”–We do not have to do more than we do but make it better. On the day of Las Palmas we showed a trade playing with one less and we took the game where we were interested. It is not football that I like, but it is a resource at any given time. It can be worth us for the future. INMA FLOWERS – He has fallen three games after his expulsion in the Cup.–If the story is told by Little Red Riding Hood or the Wolf has nothing to do with it. He throws me out because he feels like it and then I tell him it’s very bad. I drop a match for expulsion and two for disregard. I don’t know how far that is inconsiderate, I tell him what it is, I don’t insult him. I accept my mistake, but it doesn’t seem like it for two games. He expels me because I tell him to take out the cards in what is really necessary. It is a pity that young referees have the mentality of 40 or 50 years ago. You can’t even look at some, they have an inferiority complex so big that they defend themselves with cards. Now we have to talk and endure, understand that at one point they say: ‘Fuck, how bad you are.’ Well, I answered: ‘And you more’. Nothing happens. In that I liked Mexicans very much. You screwed up on their father and they on your mother. And it followed. In Spain they seem untouchable and are a minority because our referees have greatly improved.– How do you see the resolution for the ‘Zozulia Case’?–Resume the game behind closed doors and the economic fine was seen coming, but close the bottom I see it excessive. We are going to have to suffer ourselves and our hobby. We have no choice but to resort, in case something can be done. —The results generated doubts about its continuity.–In another club maybe now I wouldn’t be on the bench. Or yes, I don’t know. I thank Rayo for keeping me when the results were not, nor by any means, the expected ones, but the feelings are good and we can still get where we want. The players and I must assume that responsibility. They are a good group, great professionals, we have not been wrong with them, but we have all surrendered below expectations.center_img —He said that to aspire to the ascent they needed reinforcements, how many?–The injuries have left the team very depleted. Sometimes we were the just to be summoned. We are lame in the extremes, we have had to play with laterals, with half-points thrown to the band … It is not a whim of mine but a necessity.“Isi sounded, Amath …”–You have to bring at least two to face the competition with guarantees until the end. We are not as clear about the name as the characteristics. Our extremes have been small, fast … We want them bigger, more powerful, strong one on one and that give us different records.“Will a forward arrive?”–We have them very good, but if a possibility arises the club will consider it. That depends on the results. The first to lose the position are the technicians, but if the players have not given the level, with the signings, they can also be left out. There are people who will now have to break their faces. If we were seconds, we would all be calmer.“Will Abdoulaye, Lass or Advíncula come out?”–Abdoulaye has to leave: he wants it that way and we don’t count on him sportively. There is only one solution and you have to find it as soon as possible. I don’t know what Lass’s situation is. We did not consider his presence when forming the template, nobody told me: ‘Remember that it is coming in January and you must count on it’. It is not an alternative, in the market you have to go to something safer. Advíncula is from Rayo and is playing. We have to strengthen the team, not weaken it. Nothing should happen that did not happen last summer. “I love her, I respect her and I have always defended her, but in politics I don’t show my face for anyone” “The fans felt annoyed at his words the other day …–I love her very much, I respect her and have always defended her. Now, in political or religious aspects I don’t get my face out of anyone. The other day I made it very clear and who did not understand me is because he does not want to understand me. I fight for my hobby with anyone, up to a limit. Pablo Iglesias, Errejón, Rufián have left … supporting them, but they are politicians. For political issues there are already politicians. I am a coach and this has nothing to do with football, only that it has occurred in a field.“Do they feel in the middle of the managerial-hobby conflict?”–It catches us fully. Vallecas has lost all the essence that has made him great. We are one more field. Before it was the last redoubt of neighborhood football, foreigners came to watch games … We have loaded it and it is our fault. I mean everyone, we all get into garlic. I would have liked to have the atmosphere of my previous stage, the fans made us feel more important than we were.“What do you ask of 2020?”–Health and calm. We are all too tense and jumping to the minimum. We will try to get the problems from the rivals, not ourselves. Each other, the others one, nobody is saved here. Hopefully we are a united club that people envy. We have to fix it.“And a promotion?”–That is an obligation, we have to fight for that.– Are the workforce and you still involved in social causes?–The other day I watched a documentary by an ex-golfer and I loved a phrase that said about success. It was not money or fame but to help others. In Vallecas we have done many things other years and this is not yet, but we will do it. We are so engrossed in ours that we forget the most important. One of my father’s best advice (singer Lucas de Écija) is that, if one day I could help someone, I would do it.last_img read more

  • A heat stroke separates Ane Mintegi from the tournament

    first_imgThe match was performed on monitor 5, outside and with a temperature near 40 levels, on the hottest day of the complete championship. Attributable to the excessive heat coverage he was stopped with the rating that was in the end last and Ane couldn’t proceed enjoying when he was going to restart.

  • Zanetti: “I see Lautaro in Italian soccer one more year”

    first_imgThe sports director of Inter Milan, Javier Zanetti, He stated in Argentina, specifically on Radio Continental, that he is confident that Lautaro Martínez continues at Inter despite the interest, among others, of FC Barcelona in his signing.“I see it in Italian soccer”, The executive of the Lombard outfit stated that he was also a legend of the neroazzurro outfit.The Argentine is the great favorite of the board of directors and the technical secretariat to relieve Luis Suárez as nine of reference in the Camp Nou. Even more so after his great individual performance in the Champions League match with Inter. Lautaro and Messi’s relationship, companions in the Argentine team, may be one of the keys that lead him to opt for one side or the other. Beyond that, Barcelona also meditates paying the termination clause so as not to have to negotiate half the necessary purchase of a leading reference. AS confirmed the information of Il Corriere dello Sport, which talks about a price of 111 million euros during the first 15 days of July.However, after the Coronavirus crisis, the teams’ finances will be highly affected, so prices are expected to go down and from the technical secretariat of the club the amount is expected to be less than those 11 million.last_img read more

  • Inter: Arias for Vrsaljko?

    first_imgArias does not live his best moments at Atlético de Madrid. Erased for a month from Simeone’s plans (five games in a row in the stands, since the round of 16 against Liverpool), his future as a rojiblanco is turning blue-dark-almost-black. There are already several clubs that have called the Wanda Metropolitano asking about their situation. Everton from the Premier, Naples from Calcio. In the last hours a third is added. It is Inter Milan And it is curious: it is the club that last season disdained the purchase option on Sime Vrsaljko, at the time yielded there by Atlético, for his serious knee injury. A Vrsaljko that in this 2019-20 was not in any plan and eight months later seems to have taken the place of Arias. An Arias who could now occupy the place that the Croatian had in the Italian team. Atlético also came once Vrsaljko left for Milan. Because their paths crossed. Arias had been the best right back that season 2017-18 in the Dutch league, for his performances at PSV. Vrsaljko was gone after standing out only at times and dragging a knee problem. Arias never managed to snatch Juanfran’s place, as the Croatian had not managed either. Juanfran ended his contract last season and went to Brazil. The 19th man of the CholoArias stayed but had a particular preseason, with Giménez, for the Copa América, and his entry into the team occurred late, when Trippier, signing, was already the undisputed owner, owner and lord of the red and white right wing. Arias did not make his debut until September 25, when the matches started Wednesday-Sunday and he has barely played 23% of the minutes in the League (550 ‘, 869’ in total). At the moment he is the 19th player for Simeone, according to the minutes played, without ever, in his season and a half as a rojiblanco, he has truly shown his best qualities in Atlético.last_img read more

  • Mbappé would only renew with a ‘pro Real Madrid’ clause

    first_imgFor the white club, the ideal situation is the one it had posed before the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis. Get Mbappe not to renew this summer and try to sign him in the summer transfer window of 2021, when the French only had one year left on his contract. The same strategy that followed with Hazard. In this way, his signing would have become much cheaper … But with the uncertainty that exists these days, staying true to that strategy is a lot to ask Mbappé. In this way PSG would win so much, that they would breathe easy knowing that the chances of retaining Mbappé in the short term future would increase, the player, who would secure a long-term galactic salary (now he only has a contract until 2022 and, at 21 years old, the situation is dizzying with the possibility of injury), and the big loser, despite the existence of that clause, would be Real Madrid … The foundations of football are moving under the feet of Kilian Mbappé. The crisis of coronavirus It has changed any roadmap that could have been raised prior to the outbreak of the virus. The uncertainty is total. No one knows how it will affect the transfer market, if the big clubs in Europe will have the possibility of making big transfers and, to top it off, not even the powerful PSG is capable of guaranteeing the salary of its stars (and speaks of a 50% reduction). This is not the time to take wrong steps.As AS has been able to know, the possibility that Mbappé ends up accepting a renewal with PSG has won integers in recent days, but this could only occur if the clause stipulated in the new contract that allowed him to leave Real Madrid (or another great club) for a set amount of money. A kind of mega clause like the one that allowed Neymar to go from Barcelona to PSG himself for 222 million euros.last_img read more
