Ángel passed without luck through Castilla a decade ago

first_imgFor some players, having passed through Madrid is a cover letter that they show off their entire career. For others, it is an ephemeral station barely witnessed by a notch in the curriculum. It is the case of Angel. The blue striker, which reached thirty (he is 32 years old), has finally consolidated in First with Getafe after discreet experiences in Tenerife, Levante and Eibar. Before, he was on loan in Castilla, in the first half of the 2007-08 season. With 20 years he left Tenerife (His projection had led him to debut with the Under-19 of Piqué, Capel, Granero or Mata) in search of a few minutes that he did not find in the white subsidiary, where he coincided with Adam, Mosquera, Parejo, Los Callejón, Bueno .. . Mandiá barely gave him 72 minutes as a substitute in the first three days of the League in Second B. Therefore, in that winter he changed his air, also with a transfer, towards the Osasuna Promises … In the reddish branch he did have the opportunity to show his virtues: 1,320 minutes and 4 goals in 17 games.He returned two years to Tenerife, where he lived a promotion and his debut in Primera. The following year he finished at Elche, trained by Bordalás, whose orders he made 28 goals in two seasons. The Alicante coach recruited him again for Getafe after making Zaragoza the best season of his career: 21 goals in Second. In his first campaign of Azulón he scored 13 goals in 33 games (somewhat every 176 minutes). Last year he repeated his mark (eight goals in the League and five in the Cup) and this season he is on track to overcome it: he has eight goals in the championship and four in the Europa League.last_img read more

A historical armor

first_imgA shield that, at this point, is already historic: Madrid only He has received 13 goals in 21 days, which has only happened twice more since the 1934-35 season (the first after the extension to 12 teams and in which so many days were disputed). With the same goals against Madrid reached the Madrid of Quinta del Vulture in 1987-88, as well as the white team of 1964-65, still with Puskas and Gento, although without Di Stéfano in their ranks. While the scoring production has ample room for improvement (39 goals scored; in 2011-12, the League of Records were 71), Zidane is pleased to have hit the key so that his team is impenetrable: “Keeping the goal to zero is a strength, it is proof that we are doing well. Defensively what we are doing we are doing very well. We are strong, we all defend. When we lose the ball, we recover it very high, with pressure after loss … If we do not fit, we have many possibilities to score a goal. It’s what happened to us today. ” Ramos, returned after his right ankle injury, insisted: “Sometimes you can’t play, but we always try. That you see a Madrid with commitment and identity ”. With that recipe, Madrid has been 19 games without losing, since it fell on October 19 in Mallorca. “Work, work, work. This is how things go, ”Lucas Vázquez closed. It is an iron Madrid.With that rocky and a goal of Nacho that is worth its weight in gold, Madrid drew forward the duel despite its offensive blackout: he only shot three times at goal, his worst data of the season in LaLiga. He also shot only three times against Atlético de Madrid in the Wanda Metropolitano, although in that case he tested more times outside the three suits (11) than in Pucela (8, second worst data in the White League). In the absence of lucidity above, Madrid took forward its game in Valladolid with the best defensive solvency exercise of the course. The pucelano team discomforted Zidane to the extreme, especially in the first half, but failed to translate it into real danger: four shots in total, none between sticks. Courtois went to the locker room with immaculate gloves. It is the third time in the current LaLiga championship that Madrid leaves the opponent without knocking on goal, he already achieved it in Pizjuán against Sevilla and in Bernabéu against Osasuna.last_img read more

Lazo, the extension of Gutierrez on the pitch

first_imgJosé Carlos Lazo is the only member of the rojiblanco squad that has played the thirteen league days since José María Gutiérrez landed as a starter, either extreme or inland, despite the fact that now Torrejón de Ardoz has more chances in attack with the versatile Villalba. Of course, the former Lugo does an exercise of improper self-criticism of football and recognizes that he is not at his best level. “It motivates me that the coach keeps trusting me. In the last matches I am not doing my best, but it motivates me to keep betting on me because those from behind come squeezing and we have to continue”comments.“Maybe I have to keep training the shots, every game is a world. In a match you can score one, in two other goals or throw ten without scoring. The important thing is the team, that another teammate can also score, not just me, “continues the Cadiz, second top scorer of the Indian team, with eight goals. For Sanlucar de Barrameda the pressure is not negative. “The pressure is a motivation for us, it is good that the coach puts us in a cane to be focused. What he said in Soria was at that time, but obviously we want to go up and if it is directly, the better. Any team in the category can beat you, it’s a touch of attention so you don’t relax at any time, “he says. Although his team goes through the worst moment since Gutierrez took control of the Almeria ship, Lazo says that the locker room is quiet. “We are calm because we know that there are 15 finals left and we have to go game by game thinking we have to die for the 3 points to continue up. The mentality is strong and you have to correct mistakes “, says ’16’, which accumulates 1,832 in the domestic competition, coming from 25 games (80% of them starting from the beginning).Finally, the extreme states that in El Alcoraz they must show why they are at the top of the table. “This is not a descent without brakes. We must continue and we will go to Huesca to win. We want to always be up and we must keep improving. We have to be plugged in from minute 1 to 95, we come from bad times and we have to go out strong and mentalized because they have very good players. They respect us because they are already 20 days in direct ascent, it is a merit. Huesca is going to require us a lot, it will be a round trip and hopefully have the ball as the coach wants, “expires the Cadiz.

UEFA’s penalty puts Guardiola on Juve’s shot

first_imgThe incredible sanction that UEFA imposed on Manchester City has been received in Italy with surprise and, in some cases, with great enthusiasm, as is the case with tifosi of Juventus, whose majority never received with special enthusiasm the arrival of Maurizio Sarri, both for his past in Naples and for his resume (his only title is the Europa League he raised in the past year with Chelsea). The dream of the bianconeri He always had the same name and surname: Pep Guardiola. The former Barça already rang, and very much, last summer after the news that Allegri did not continue as coach of the Turin team.The entity of the Agnelli did try the arrival of the Catalan coach, but in 2019 it was impossible for Guardiola to leave the City. The parties ended with a ‘see you soon’ that could be realized this summer in the arrival of Pep to the Italian league. Guardiola ends the contract in 2021. He recently said he wanted to continue in the English team, but the ban on participating in the top continental competition could change his plans. Until now, the contacts of the City to try to extend the bonding of Spanish have not been successful, in what could be a clear sign that the coach has new sports challenges in his mind. Pep has a special relationship with Italy after his time at Brescia as a player and has never hidden that he would like to try his luck as a coach in Italy. This stage in Brescia allows one of the basic requirements Guardiola demands when he takes the reins of a club: to know the language. After winning titles in Spain, Germany and England, this change would be a new challenge for him in his career.Although Juve assures otherwise, right now Sarri’s position is less solid than ever. In the last four games he has a balance of one victory, two defeats and the controversial draw this Thursday against Milan in the Cup. In addition, losing the Super Cup against Lazio had already weakened the image of the Tuscan coach, who could end his adventure Bianconera in the coming months. Obviously everything will depend on the results in the three competitions, but the choice of Sarri was always with the intention of starting to implement a method similar to that used by Guardiola, with the idea that at some point it will be the Spanish coach who takes the reins of Juventus …last_img read more

Meeting between the board of Oviedo and Rozada

first_imgNobody counted on the defeat before the Alcorcón. The 1-2 of the potter set, after a bad first part of Oviedo, puts the blue against the ropes: Albacete’s draw the next day leaves the Rozada team again in relegation positions. But in the blue club it’s about keeping a cool head and sending messages of tranquility with the team’s situation.After the defeat against Alcorcón, The board of directors held a meeting with Javi Rozada, coach, which was also attended by Arturo Elías, representative of the highest shareholder, via telephone from Mexico. The idea of ​​the board of directors is to give the coach more opportunities, since regardless of the image before the Alcorcón, the upward trajectory is valued (more in sensations than in numbers) that the team had shown in recent weeks. But the requirement is immediate results. Only adding three by three will achieve a climate of tranquility and tranquility in the work so demanded in a place that tends to instability like Oviedo. Therefore, the team must duel Lugo with the three points in his pocket. Anything other than winning in the Anxo Carro can have consequences even for the bench. The board of directors remains the mainstay in Rozada’s position, but that defense is only supported by positive results.Looking ahead to the duel in Galician lands, Rozada will have his entire staff at his disposal with the sole exception of the injured Edu Cortina. The coach recovers Lolo after serving penalty in the clash against Alcorcón and it seems likely that his eleven present changes compared to last Saturday.Ortuño urges to look “with enthusiasm”Within the climate of pessimism in which oviedism has been installed, the costumes try to shed some light. Alfredo Ortuña urges to look at the 14 days that remain of competition “with illusion”. “We have to play well, have clear ideas about what to do on the pitch and know how to beat the rivals,” says the striker, who before Alcorcón returned to the path of the goal thanks to a penalty that closed the clash in the final 1-2.For Murcia, the duel against Lugo is important but not transcendental: “For me, a final is when you play a title. But it is very important because it is a direct rival and the goal-average is at stake. Adds almost four points and more in group morale. ” The appointment, on Sunday at 12.00 in the Anxo Carro, can be a turning point in blue aspirations. In the first training of the week, held at El Requexón with open doors, they were Francesc Arnau, sports director, and Federico González, advisor to the Carso Group, who transmitted to the media and fans confidence in the project and in which the coach and the squad will take the situation forward.last_img read more

“In Madrid you cannot give full responsibility to young people”

first_img“With this break there is no longer a favorite between Manchester City and Real Madrid” “Zidane came back and took a risk … That defines men lols” -Does Madrid need a renovation?– It is necessary to do it, but with care. You have to sign players who make the differences. Because when you wear the Madrid or Barça shirt it is a shirt that weighs. And if you don’t have a lot of quality, you can’t do it, you get lost.-I get it…-The same thing happened in my time in Milan, when it was time to play at San Siro. There were players who thought they were good and … and they got lost.-Rodrygo, Brahim, Vinicius, Odegaard … It is Madrid’s new policy.-Waiting for them to explode. In my second stage in Madrid they signed us to Marcelo, Gago and Higuaín. In December the president came to me: “Why don’t you put them on, Fabio!” “Because they are kids,” I said, “you have to wait a bit. They are the future, they can make history later.” And then the only one who did little was Gago, the other two did their part. They needed experience and personality. There is-So?-You have to sign young people and go little by little with them, take care of them. You cannot give him responsibility now.– Ramos said it before the City: “It is a game for men, children, aside.” How is the tie?-For me it changes everything. With this break there is no favorite. We do not know, if it is played, how the teams can be found. There are no favorites, no one knows …– it surprised to him that Zidane returned to the bench?-You always have to take risks, there you see the men … I wish you all the luck. -How does a coach manage such a break?-Impossible. You can only hope that your players are professionals, that they take care of themselves, that they don’t put on weight … If they continue eating like when they train, say goodbye.-Clear.– Although good, now there is not a star that does not train with a personal trainer. “If now the players continue eating like when they are training … bad”center_img -We are not accustomed.– (Laughs). The day is very long, very long. But you have to give thanks because nobody has fallen in my family. This is going to get very complicated worldwide. In Lombardy, in Bergamo and Brescia, he hit very hard. And it is a reduced site that has 10 million people. It’s a problem.-The Euro Cup went to 2021. Good idea?Very good idea. It is not known when all this will end. We have to put everything next year, everything, everything …-And the Leagues?– It is not possible to be said if they will be played, we will see. What you can not do is play soccer with which you are falling. Look at Valencia, Espanyol, Alavés … It will not be easy. I started playing in the late 50s, already after the War, and I have not experienced anything like it. – Was he watching the League?-I always follow Spanish teams. It was a surprise to see Atlético win against Liverpool. Simeone raised a great match. Nothing can be blamed on him. I liked his game so much, I could only do what he did. Because he has the best goalkeeper, Oblak.-And Madrid?-Well, I couldn’t say, at times he has problems, at times he plays very well.-Why that irregularity?-You need leaders in the field. The team must have a benchmark, someone to follow who transmits the desire to win. I had Raúl, Hierro, Redondo … They always wanted.-And now there is no Christian.– That is … I always as a television commentator said: “If you want to beat Madrid you have to score at least two goals”. Because you knew that Cristiano put a safe one. And the same with Barça and Messi, huh? “I have never experienced anything like it in my entire life.” And it admits: “The days without football are very, very long.” He is Fabio Capello (73 years old), a football myth with whom we analyze Madrid news. The Italian asks that if a renewal of the template is made “with signings that make the difference.”-Where do you spend these days?-Where I live, in Lugano.-How is the theme there?-Just like in Italy, it is Switzerland but border. People do not leave home.-But is there an obligation of confinement?-Not yet, but people respect him.-And how are you?-Well, calm down, with my wife … Without watching soccer.last_img read more
