In the PSG there is a certain degree of concern for Kylian Mbappé. The footballer, whom they are trying to renew to continue in Paris beyond 2021, He offered a few months ago to play the Olympic Games with France. They can go up to three players who exceed 23 years, and it goes without saying that three players of the national team must add to their talent (they are 21 years old and would not occupy one of those places), it would make them a fearsome rival. Flirt 1* Data updated as of February 13, 2020 The right side is expected to come, Colin Dagba, something that would not upset his club’s plans too much, but that Mbappé does not rest during the summer is another song. The president of the French Football Federation (FFF), Noël Le Graët, once again manifested in L’Equipe his interest in the star traveling to Tokyo and explained that it would be very difficult for them not to summon him knowing that he is willing to go, as well as the PSG would not oppose giving it up, if only for image reasons, since in case of retaining the entire country they could be thrown over. But it’s not just the Olympic Games. And it is also the year of Eurocopa and Copa América, competitions in which, except injury, will be both Mbappé (France) and Neymar (Brazil). The two stars of the team will not have rest in summer. As for the rest of the strikers, it is expected that Edinson Cavani go with Uruguay but just contract and Mauro Icardi not a regular with Argentina. Losing so many stars for so long worries as much as any other club, but in the case of Mbappé and Neymar, who want to be in all competitions, It can become a long-term problem due to the risk of fatigue or injury. 7
The case manager of specific staff players also spoke. De Hervías said: “He is fighting and in the last two games he has always come out, but the competition is now very high and we need you to be at this level so that others do not relax. With Plano and Toni the team is feeling well “, while of Sandro’s situation explained: “We are putting the things he does well, which are many, but in the knock on door we are not finding the Sandro we want. We are working with him, but the less he becomes obsessed, the better. He is annoyed, it is clear that the beating has to be on the other stick, in the end it is that you encounter similar situations so that it ends as it should and that it does not come to your head “and when talking about Matheus Fernandes and Hatem Ben Arfa explained: “This week we are working more specific things with them, they have a lot of room for maneuver to get their minimum physical condition, they have one or two weeks left to say they are well. “ Precisely at this point he pointed out that “We have talked to Hatem and Matheus, we watched the videos of the other day, watching the workouts and we have decided to take a step back, to do two weeks of individual training, specific so that they have the minimum appropriate pace so that later the rhythm of competition is given by the parties, we want them both in their best version “ although yes He clarified that he has no regrets about having taken the Franco-Tunisian to the field: “We took it out because we thought it was the best for the team, but we saw that it was not as good as he and we thought. “The Catalan coach He also said that to Salisu, despite the information that comes out, “I am seeing it phenomenal. Its performance is extraordinary and proof of this is the cover (of AS). She is a kid who knows what it took to get here, is well advised and What we do is put your feet on the floor. Soccer is very ephemeral. He has to be focused on his work, keep doing it right. Without the present of the parties he is doing there will not be a beautiful future. “ Sergio González, coach of Real Valladolid, appeared before the press before the game against Granada and He started explaining that understand that your team is “well, I see them with confidence, they are training very well, with good feelings “and valued the fact of having overcome a hard stage of the season after the victory in Mallorca: “I notice a harmony, eager to work, the feeling that after the victory in Mallorca we take a weight off, knowing that we deserved to win before. We removed a stone from above, against Villarreal we made another good first part and it is true that the team has good feelings again. It’s with confidence, it’s fine, with enthusiasm and that’s the most important thing. “After the technician valued Granada and explained: “It’s a good block, very well worked, that It is very clear how to play and what to play. They empower the group to individualities. A team that likes to play more outside than inside, very aggressive, with a lot of intensity and very strong individual duels “and” there will be the key to the game, if we match its frequency we can play a great game. “ The coach was more specific later: “Play 4-2-3-1 clear, although the other day they changed to line five, with Carlos Fernández who for me is a very important player for them, appears well between the lines, which understands the game well, with the ability to score, which combines well with midfield players and comes to the door. It has very skilled people on the outside, the long-running sides that are well incorporated, the two very static midfielders, which cover all the offensive actions of their bands and a striker forward. The absence of Soldier is going to be important and I think Carlos will advance his position. “ The minister said that the party of San Mamés del Granada is another example of what Granada is, we saw it in preseason. A rival that squeezes, that jumps, that all individual duels are for them, like the second moves, which squeeze a lot both individually, as a block and that then they have those mechanisms downloading to the top in band to then center, with people on the outside very skilled. They have important wicks, but the most important thing is the structure and how it competes “to conclude that “If we put legs like them, then we have football to beat them”. In addition, Sergio González believes that although “his legs may weigh” after the game in San Mamés, “the head is very important.”

The Cádiz midfielder was again essential for his team to take the victory. The leader remains intractable under the baton of an Álex Fernández who scored his eleventh goal of the season. In his goal he was attentive after a rejection, to from the ground, put his foot just enough to accommodate the ball inside the goal.Luis Perea (Alcorcón) The Alcorcón left in the Fernando Torres a first part of First team. Luis Perea was the main architect of this great pottery image. The winter signing has fallen on the Santo Domingo team and, in the blue feud, signed a brilliant performance being outstanding in recovering the ball. In addition, he rounded his game with two goals to the ball stopped.Borja (Oviedo) The defender of Las Palmas premiered his scoring account against Malaga, with a powerful stub at the exit of a corner. Munir could not do anything to avoid both. The island squad also adds an impeccable performance in defense, with eight of nine aerial duels won, a blocked shot and an interception.Lombán (Málaga) The center has been unleashed as a scorer with two goals in the last two days. On this occasion he finished off a corner kick taken by Dani Pacheco, with a perfect header shot with his back to the goal. His goal served to score a point against Las Palmas, in the Gran Canaria stadium.Arrivals (Oviedo) Álex Alegría has given Extremadura what the Almendralejo lacked in the first part of the season: goal. The striker has already scored four goals in the six games he has with the Barca jacket. Their goals are synonymous with points. Before the Huesca, he scored a goal of nine pure with a powerful header on the second stick. The 30th day of LaLiga SmartBankHe had eleven protagonists that we detail below. Okazaki (Huesca) and Luis Perea (Alcorcón) stood out with two doublets. Álex (Cádiz) gave the victory to the leader with his eleventh goal. Hugo Fraile (Fuenlabrada) scored one goal and gave another and the defenses Curbelo (Las Palmas) and Lombán (Málaga) signed the two days of the match that faced both teams.GoalkeeperRené (Ponferradina) Oviedo is in need of points and against Tenerife it achieved an important victory that allows it to continue looking at the permanence. Arribas had a fundamental role in the achievement of the three points, with a defensive performance of carats. He thwarted all the danger that came to him, with four clearances, a blocked shot and three interceptions.MidfieldersÁlex (Cádiz) René completed a great performance against Sporting. The goal yielded by Almeria made five stops, three of them from within the small area. His first intervention was in a shot by Álvaro Vázquez. The last one, key to get the three points, was to clear a foul by Pedro Díaz.DefensesCurbelo (Las Palmas) In this crisis that Fuenlabrada is experiencing, Hugo Fraile is making it clear that he is a player of superior talent and quality. The blue end was one of the main architects of the ‘almost-comeback ‘with his goal and his assistance. The assistance was a tense center for his partner Ibán Salvador and the penalty kick.StrikersOkazaki (Huesca) Albacete seems to wake up from that nightmare in which he lived the last two months of competition. Pedro Sánchez is being his awakening. The former sportsman again saw the door against Rayo Vallecano as he did last day against Numancia. The goal made clear one of its best qualities: the arrival from the second line.Hugo Fraile (Fuenlabrada) The Japanese is being all work and commitment in his first season with the Oscenses. A crucial footballer for Míchel. Before Extremadura, Okazaki signed his first double of the season at a time when Huesca suffers from a goal. Both head, the first, catching with the foot changed to the rival goalkeeper and the second, taking advantage of a space behind the visitor.Joy (Extremadura) Ziganda has in the young Borja one of his best tricks to achieve permanence and the midfielder made it clear with his match against Tenerife. He only needed half an hour to change the face of his team and revolutionize the match. He led the entire offensive game carbayón and also caused the penalty of the only goal of the match.Pedro Sánchez (Albacete)
In the organization only there is a precedent. We must go back to 1999, when UEFA, then under the presidency of the Swedish Lennart Johansson, decided to grant him the title to the Partisan of Belgrade, who was the leader of the tournament when he had to be suspended ten days from the end due to the outbreak of the Balkan war.Although the regulations in Spain state that “the final classification of the competition will have to be decided by mutual agreement between LaLiga and the Federation”, in case of disagreement “it will be the president of the Federation, or the body to which he delegates, who will make the final decision”. The same article is identical in almost all the federations in Europe, and many of them prefer that it is UEFA that sets the formula to avoid conflicts with their own teams. Luis Rubiales is a manager with decision-making capacity in the matter, since as president of the RFEF he joins that of vice-president of UEFA. UEFA has summoned its 55 European federations on Tuesday to reorganize European football due to the coronavirus pandemic. Decisions of transcendence will be made. In tomorrow’s conclave, UEFA will have to make three fundamental resolutions: postponing the European Championship until 2021, choosing the format to conclude the European competitions and unify criteria for naming champions, promotions and declines across the continent to ensure “equal justice and merit” in access to the next edition of the Champions League and the Europa League. The organization that Ceferin chairs already has a position taken regarding the league champions. She is in favor of granting the title to the leader of each championship at the time it had to be permanently suspended, something that they do not think will happen because the more than likely postponement of the Euro Cup would leave dates free to close the calendar, but always depending on whether the pandemic can be controlled in time. UEFA would close the following editions of the Champions League and the Europa League taking into account the classification at the time of suspending the leagues. Wouldn’t go into the descents of category, something that would leave in the hands of the federations that could choose the format to solve them. But I would advise the same formula as for naming champion.
How will football crisis as we know it change?There was a lot of debate about the foundations of football. Changes in European competition were tried out and he did not stop arguing. We are now experiencing a slowdown process. I am satisfied with the current structure of football and I choose to keep it. I am convinced that the market mechanisms will readjust in terms of supply and demand. I sense that those responsible for European clubs will be cautious about this evolution in the world of football.Visions like the European Super League seem further than ever.I was never a supporter of the Super League. In Germany, in particular, we have understood that the fan does not want it. He wants the Bundesliga and the Champions; the icing on the cake. The fans reject something as artificial as the Super League, which pursues the sole objective of generating more money. It is a subject that we should bury as soon as possible. We have an obligation to take the fans into account in our calculations. They are the foundation of everything. And they are happy with the current model.Does the crisis force us to think about insurance models for the future?This has never happened. No one was prepared or insured. The leagues either. As for insurance policies and their viability, I am skeptical. I do not know how and for how much money insurance can be designed to cover these types of events. Let us hope that it is a singular case and does not recur in such a dimension.The Belgian league has just been suspended. Are your legs starting to shake?UEFA has criticized the Belgian league, in my view in a justified way, for declaring the season suspended. In Germany we all agree: the 36 clubs have made the decision to end the season, even if it has to be after June 30 for political or health reasons.Do leagues have priority against Champions, Eurocup and World Cup?This has been decided by UEFA. You are dealing with the subject with great sensitivity and good sense. He has prioritized the leagues.The contracts that expire in June are yet another problem. Solutions in sight?The market will have to be adapted. At Perisic, Coutinho and Odriozola we have three assignments whose contracts expire on June 30. In the event that the season continues beyond that date, it is up to FIFA to come up with a solution that ensures that players can end the season with their respective clubs. Failure to do so would distort competition.How do you rate the sports and political measures adapted in Europe to date?Politics is exceptionally handling the crisis, especially in Bavaria. Here we are in good hands. The Prime Minister has earned the trust of the people based on his clear and unhurried character. Now it is time to be disciplined and wait for everything to evolve favorably.In Barcelona it seems to have cost a little more to achieve a reduction in salaries in the workforce.I don’t have any details about it. Here we also talked to the footballers and, in a matter of a day, they agreed to do without 20 percent of their salary as a solidarity act with the club’s employees.Real Madrid turned their stadium into a warehouse for medical supplies, Bayern also sets an example of solidarity between clubs. Are they revealing their true faces in the face of the crisis?It is important that everyone is aware of their responsibility. It seems good to me that those clubs that were always branded as millionaires stand out above the rest. It is the social obligation of soccer.The club announced to stop all activity in the market and to prioritize renovations. How is the situation of the players whose contracts expire soon?We have had conversations with the players and their respective agents. Have to wait. The fact that we do not know definitively until when we will have to deal with the coronavirus makes planning considerably difficult. How are you?My family and I are fine, thanks for asking.Do you remember when was the first time you heard of the coronavirus?Pretty soon due to our Shanghai office. On January 7 we went back to work and in the middle of the month the outbreak began. My colleague Jorg Wacker, responsible for internationalization and hence the China office, requested the closure immediately. An employee even went to visit her family in the Wuhan epicenter and was unable to leave for weeks. It was depressing.Is the coronavirus an opportunity to break free from the consumer image of soccer?Society in general is being an example of solidarity. Football also has to show solidarity at the moment. The impact of our sport on society is enormous, so we must set an example. The world of soccer is trying to put this empathy into practice in all corners of the planet. Everyone wants to be an example to follow and give encouragement for the future.How do you rate the measures taken in the Bundesliga and abroad?The DFL (German League Federation) is handling the issue quite well. President Seifert is doing exemplary work. Everything happens in a harmonious, solidary and loyal way. In these times it is important that the strongest support the weakest. We are all aware. So we try not to leave the weaker clubs alone.The four participants in the Champions League made available twenty million, partly from television income not yet distributed to the neediest clubs. How did it happen?We met in Düsseldorf when travel was still possible. We wanted to set an example of solidarity and, finally, we chose to take this measure. Now we have to wait to see how things evolve. Of course, I think there is an opportunity to get out of the crisis in financial terms.Does it bother you that people consider you a financial bluff? There are those who say that the origin of such undistributed television revenue is not entirely clear.It is sad, yes. I have received many letters and messages about it. Most of them find it great. The participants of the Champions League have made an important contribution to solidarity in football. No more no less.Is Bayern healthy?Bayern Munich is healthy and financially sound. We haven’t played a game in weeks and that obviously affects Bayern’s finances as well. There remain to be distributed television funds that, right now, it is not known if they will be distributed and in what way. We also lack revenue from ticket sales and merchandising. Of course, we have a great advantage: turnover and profit were the engines of soccer until recently. Now we are realizing that the most important factor is liquidity. Fortunately, we have been economically successful for a few years. Unlike many clubs to which this aspect is causing great concern, we cannot complain about liquidity.Is it the consequence of the model based on economic stability that Bayern has been pursuing for years?We always had our own philosophy. We never get carried away by the madness of the market. We were criticized for it, but today I am happier than ever not to have done so. Just that mentality has protected us from greater evils, especially regarding our employees. Players earn enough money. They won’t have to beg for a little less. Our employees do fear for their survival. That is why we are proud to be able to present ourselves, even in these times, as a stable employer.Breaking the rules carries penalties, as evidenced by the fine imposed on Jerome Boateng for leaving the city.Hasan (Salihamidzic, sports director) imposed guidelines that prohibited leaving Munich. In this way, we want to avoid contagion of a player and part of the squad being quarantined. Given the DFL’s plans, it would have devastating consequences. The problem was that Jerome did not ask the sports management for permission. Nor informed them. We want to set an example within the imposed judicial and health framework. It counts for everyone.
The coronavirus has postponed the book festival and with it, the departure of the traditional volume of Sports Solidarity Stories, a charity that sports journalists have published for 16 consecutive years sponsored by a sports figure, this year it was Quique Setién’s turn, in order to deliver all of the proceeds each year to a charity.This year the book was special for all who make it, because It is a book of photographs freely loaned to honor Fernando Zueras, AS photographer, and Carlos Pérez de Rozas, who died last year. Unfortunately, recently we were also left by the photographers Francesc Casals and Miguel Moreno, who were also honored in this edition whose benefits will go to the Pallapupes collective, the solidarity clowns who go to the pediatric plants of hospitals to cheer children boarding schools. Quique Setién agreed to the request of the group of journalists to pose with a clown nose, as Guardiola did in his day in favor of Clowns without Borders, and write the prologue of the work in which he says that “From now on, I assume the responsibility of my public position as a speaker to avoid the tension and tensions that surround us every day and to be a little happier. And for that we need there not to be a single sad clown. Those children who will take our place will remember the rest of their lives each of your smiles. And there is no greater reason or stimulus than a child’s smile to leave a better future. “Setien explains that “Soccer was everything until the news about the coronavirus pandemic suddenly ended with doubts and reality confined us at home somewhat distressed (…) This wonderful invitation to be part of this consolidated solidarity project comes at the right time, first because it has stirred my consciousness from the moment I started reading all the prologues that have gone before me and also because it reminds us of who we really are and the short film. time that we are going to be around here. ”
The clublogically it is aware of this concern of its subscribers and has several options to deal with the problem. One would be directly refund the money in a bank transfer, applying the aliquot to those six partys, which represent a third of the total subscription. Those meetings are against Eibar, Valencia, Mallorca, Getafe, Alavés and Villarreal. The another option would be talking to interested subscribers in renovate your subscription for the 2020-21 season and lower you in the total fee the equivalent to those six encounters. A compensation logical and inevitable and even more so if add number from matches of the next course They will not be able to enjoy the face factor either.In any case, the Madrid waits cautiously before making a decision since, for now, not even it is fully guaranteed that the competition to be resumed, although everything indicates that LaLiga will be concluded during the June and July. Since it would be played behind closed doors, AS has already reported that these six pending matches will almost certainly be played in the Say Stéfano from Valdebebas and not at the Bernabéu. But that will not comfort the subscribers much, that in any of the two scenarios they should settle for watch it from home. The coronavirus leaves no other option. Within the Real Madrid continue studying, thanks to the possibility of teleworking (the offices of Valdebebas and the Bernabéu are empty, except for the security guards), tall open fronts for the entity by fault of the burdensome break of the competitions. Another of the collateral damages of COVID-19 refers to the situation of the 61,000 subscribers (for LaLiga) and euro-subscribers (also entitled to Champions League matches, the most expensive being 2,622 euros and the cheapest being 552). Those of LaLiga, which include 19 games of the Championship, go since 2,024 euros from the West Lateral Tribune (the one that faces Paseo de La Castellana), to 1,274 from the First East Amphitheater (the one that faces Padre Damián street), or the funds, where the most expensive is the Tribune (1,092) or the payment of the 4th Amphitheater of said funds, resulting in both the cheapest with 414 euros for the entire league course.Well, since six games left League to play and that will surely be played behind closed doors by decision Health (The Government has already reported that until 2021 will not be allowed large concentrations of people in sporting events), Madridista subscribers wonder what will happen with those matches that have already been paid in the annual fee since last summer. And what will happen to those compost matchesor of the next course, that they will not be able to see them in the stadium until the green light is given to the return of the public to the stands?
The paths of Girona and Rubi, current Betis coach, will cross again in 2023. Even if it’s only for a day. It will be ten years since the frustrated attempt to ascend to First and the coach promised to take the staff of that course (2012-13) to eat to remember those lived then. It was the first time that in the rojiblanca entity they dreamed of rising to the gold category of Spanish football after some courses full of suffering and battles not to fall to Second B.The 2012-13 campaign left great moments and, after finishing the League in fourth position, the rojiblancos played the promotion playoff. In the semifinals they eliminated Alcorcón and in the final Almería awaited them. After 0-1 in the first leg, in Montilivi, Girona had to come back to go up to Primera. AND In the preview of that duel (06-22-2013), Rubi launched a great motivational talk to his staff and warned them that no matter what happened, they would meet ten years later to remember what they enjoyed that year. There was no happy ending because the people of Almería won 3-0 and woke Rubi’s sleep. Years have passed and that group does not hesitate to rate this course “as one of the best”. Eloi Amagat, Richy, Jandro and Felipe Sanchón revealed in the video call that Girona published last Saturday that they are looking forward to that reunion. Rubi also does not forget her past at Girona. It was the club that gave him the alternative in professional football. He showed the way to glory to the red and white entity. In three years, the coach will meet again with a squad that emphasizes that “we learned and enjoyed him a lot”. They will all be red and white again for at least one day. That generation was about to achieve the dream of going up to Primera. Later, the 2016-17 campaign was accomplished. But they laid the foundations and that is why a meal is planned in 2023 to cast a glance to the past.
