Bruno and Ballesteros ’18’: “They told me it looked like him”

first_imgAnd, without going any further, another defense of reference in recent years in the club, now in sports management, David Navarro, was the one who began to establish relations with the canary and lived a similar situation. He arrived free of contract from Switzerland until the end of the season and ended up taking root in the Levant. Bruno’s story could have a traced ending. They are not bad references Dorsal ’18’ seems to have chosen Bruno González in Levante and not vice versa.

There were few more options and he ended up decanting without knowing the fact.

It is another pride, a responsibility and we are going to give it our all and break our soul for the shield. “An end of sentence that could have signed the legendary defender of Burjassot. “I can bring strength, experience and aggressiveness in a good way. I like grief, physical contacts and it can be my main characteristic“Bruno said when defining his characteristics, some words that could have sprouted from the Ballesteros libretto.last_img read more

Atlético – Liverpool | The Atleti and the triumph of faith

first_imgWithout possession, half against the rojiblancos was enough to continue transforming into wasps, horses galloping towards the goal of Alisson. But sometimes Morata ran into Robertson and sometimes with Alisson. The break came with Mané hitting Vrsaljko in the face for twice of pure impotence, playing the red one, and Oblak with the gloves intact. It was the first time that Liverpool Klopp closed a part without a shot on goal. The coach reacted immediately: I originated by Mané as soon as I returned from rest. Lemar was also leaving, his work done, it was Llorente’s turn. I needed the Atleti legs, lungs, physique. Atlético is a team with multiple automated attack connections. That attacks you in many different ways. Again the Atleti sanctified and locked in its area, but 45 minutes more worn. Liverpool had more body, more rhythm, haste. Salah nodded a ball that went to a span of Oblak’s right post. He was playing Liverpool over and over Vrsaljko’s band, once they had verified that Lodi had his door locked and very closed. His match was outrageous.The Metropolitan began to feel the heart in the throat. As if missing chest to put in so many nerves. He raised his voice. Ale, ale, aleee. His team was all shrinking and inaccuracies but all eyes were directed at the band, those of Klopp also: Costa sowed panic just by going out to warm up. Then Morata, alone before Alisson, tripped over himself and sent to the air the nth center of Lodi that furrowed the air screaming goool. He had to continue to suffer while the skin of Koke, Saul and Thomas was spilled on the grass in sweat drips. Holding the trident before, leading the pressure, swinging and covering now. ChangesMarcos Llorente (45 ‘, Lemar), Divock Origi (45 ‘, Mane), Vitolo (69 ‘, Morata), Oxlade-Chamberlain (72 ‘, Salah), Diego Costa (76 ‘, Belt), Milner (79 ‘, Henderson) Reason shouted that it was impossible. Beat Liverpool, stand up in this knockout round, Liverpool Klopp, the champion, the heavy-metal team that thunks throughout Europe. The impossible that in the 4th minute raised a fist to the aphonic cry of the Metropolitan, which sounded like old Calderón. A fist with that tattooed phrase, “strength does not come from bodily ability but from the will of the soul”, which marked the way. Saul kissed him, as in so many other great nights in Europe.The impossible was how Atlético went to the game. He grabbed him by the flap instead of letting him bury him. As if Simeone had opened a boat full of wasps. The rojiblancos itched, the rojiblancos bit. Quarters, quarters, all his boots seemed screaming. His multiplied soccer players. Breads and fish, heads and legs. They were everywhere. Overwhelming, he took the ball from Liverpool. At four minutes, that corner, so many times the shovel with which this Atleti dug the rival’s grave. Koke threw it, the ball touched on Fabinho and was killed so that a boot he will shoot her at the goal of Alisson like a bullet straight to the heart. That of that player who raised his fist. Saúl Ñíguez, who only knows how to score important goals. 1-0 The impossible come true. Simeone raised her arms in a grinder, asking for more voice, thrust of throats. Llorente slipped away in a Maradonian race, Liverpool was no longer drowning the same. Even Klopp lost his smile. He removed Salah and Henderson was injured while he heard the Ale, ale, aleee. There was Costa, in the band, 100 days later. The beast to play the last fifteen minutes. Atletico were the last minutes, Atletico and Vitolo races. Getting that question old again. “Dad, why are we from Atleti?” For parties like this, son. For this coach who again made the widest shirt, the reddest stripes. For his players, all his players. Again, another one. Because his team achieved the impossible, beat Liverpool the first 90 minutes of this tie on another night like those, of pure emotion, of struggle, of delivery. Athletic night. And the team walking on their favorite path. The heroic. Who said impossible? That’s how Anfield faces.center_img CardsReferee: Szymon MarciniakVAR Referee: Pawel GilMane (39 ‘, Yellow) belt (44 ‘, Yellow) Joe Gomez (58 ‘, Yellow After the blow, the answer. Because there was, immediate. Liverpool took the ball, embracing Atlético in their area. A Liverpool forced to play and play, without depth. The ball did not reach Firmino, Fabinho played with the blinded halls, Atlético survived comfortable battleship. The centers of Robertson and Alexander Arnold were always with a rival leg, Mané was not in the forest of men of Cholo and Salah either. His clearest chance in the first part, he met Felipe’s head: in recent times there is no better insurance. He made an extraordinary match. Other.The Cholo had surprised from the same booth. Vrsaljko holder, Arias discard. Lemar too. But not the Lemar of recent months, that without confidence, who weighed the shirt, legs and shield and only needed to write his notice at the Atleti. No, not that. It was the other Lemar, that of the Tallinn Super Cup, that looked like a mirage. Good in the game and better to help. Between him and Lodi they ate Alexander Arnold.last_img read more

Dallas conditions Hazard’s return with Madrid and the Euro

first_imgReal Madrid and Eden Hazard, after many conversations and consultations with different specialists, decided definitively this weekend that the Belgian be operated. Eden suffered a fissure in the right distal fibula on February 22 that put the rest of his season at risk and the parties have seen this as the ideal solution when it is understood that it is the best in the long term. As the journalist Edu Pidal advanced in Zero Wave, Hazard will go to the operating room this week, Thursday. To do this, the attacker will fly with Niko Mihic, head of the medical services of the club, to Dallas, where he will go to the Carrell Clinic. The player still does not know who will be in charge of the operation, although he is confident of the zeal with which Madrid has dealt with the matter.The figure of Dr. Daniel Cooper, a Madrid consultant who works in it and is the medical officer of the Dallas Cowboys of the NFL, has been key to the choice of the clinic. His specialty, however, is the shoulders, so he will not be directly responsible for the operation. It could be Eugene Curry, surgeon for the Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas Mavericks, who in the basketball franchise operated the German Dirk Nowitzki on the ankle in April 2018. Hazard’s withdrawal period is now fully conditioned to the intervention. There is talk of about two months, and the hope of Madrid and its galactic is that it can wear the white shirt in some game at the end of this course. Further, Eden’s idea is to reach the European Championship, a vision that they share since their selection, which has been aware of each novelty after misfortune. In fact, coach Roberto Martínez has attended the Bernabéu twice this week, following live matches against City and Barcelona.In any case, Hazard will use on this occasion a route already seen in the past in Madrid. Van Nistelrooy operated on his knee in 2008 with Dr. Steadman in Colorado and Higuain traveled to Chicago to go through the hands of Dr. Richard G. Fessler because of an annoying and painful hernia in the back.So that, This will be the second surgery in the Hazard area, who in June 2017, in a training with Belgium, suffered a fractured right ankle whereby Kris van Crombrugge, a doctor from Belgium, operated on him in London and placed a titanium plate.last_img read more

Hitler missed the goal

first_imgWith Goebbels as a henchman, Hitler attached great importance to his regime’s propaganda. I would not overlook the mass phenomenon that was already at that time football and From his arrival to the Government he used sport to boast of German power, but several times they did not end as he expected.At the JJ OO in Berlin in 1936, Peru humiliated Austria (the country of origin of the Führer), despite the Nazi effort to avoid it. The referee was threatened and came to cancel three Peruvian goals. The match was suspended due to the behavior of the South American fans, who invaded the field of play (ordered by Goebbels). With the intention of repeating the game, Peru and Colombia (in solidarity) left the JJ OO.Again with Austria as the protagonist, Germany organized a friendly match with its neighbors to celebrate the Anschluss (The annexation of both countries also involved the soccer teams). Austrian Mathias Sindelar won the match by himself and refused to play the German World Cup that summer in France. That party ended his professional career and his accidental death in January 1939 remains an intrigue.Hitler requested to host the 1942 World Cup for the same reason of exhibiting himself to the world. FIFA had doubts and deferred its decision until 1940. The war did not change the plans of the highest soccer body and Germany would be declared host at a meeting in Luxembourg, but a Nazi bombardment in the area and the advance of German troops suspended the decision and the tournament. On April 20 it became a national holiday to mark the birthday of the Führer and in 1941 he decided to celebrate it with a match in Bern against the Swiss team. “That was like a crime of high treason”, declared Sepp Herberger, German coach. Upon learning of the defeat, Goebbels sent a telegram to Hans von Tschammer, head of the German Sports Office: “It is forbidden in the future to organize sporting events in which there are doubts of victory. End. Heil Hitler”.But the failed show of strength that we remember most today in the famous 1981 film Evasion or Victory was known as Death match. FC Start, a team of former soccer players, defeated a team from the German Army in Kiev despite the consequences they already knew. “They entered resigned to lose, trembling with fear and hunger, but they could not resist the desire to be worthy”Eduardo Galeano wrote.Although Spain did not participate fully in the war, the team played a friendly match in Berlin. They had all the comforts of the world and served as a tribute to the Blue Division. There are several stories of soldiers who pursued their careers after the war. Bert Trautmann, parachutist of the Luftwaffe who ended up in Manchester City, or Fritz Walter, captain of the Germany champion of the World Cup 54 (the Miracle of Bern), who escaped from going to the fields of the Gulag when he was recognized by a Soviet soldier.England. In general, football did not stop in the first years except in England, where they learned from their mistake 25 years ago. Nevertheless, tournaments were organized without FA recognition. The Wartime League and the Football league war cup they were the entertainment of a country that had to meet a series of rules. No more than 8,000 spectators due to the risk of German bombardments (in one of the Cup finals at Wembley they exceeded 40,000 in a football victory over fear) and displacements always less than 50 miles (80 km).last_img read more

Lyon, Dortmund and Arsenal, attentive to Gelabert’s future in Madrid

first_imgCésar Gelabert, one of the biggest pearls of ‘La Fábrica’, ends his contract with Madrid in 2021 and several teams are pending his situation. French Lyon have reports of him from his first youth season. In fact, they even made a formal offer, but Madrid rejected it and they are still aware of its progression and future.Gelabert’s interest in Europe has not only been in France, but also in England. Arsenal is also pending if the youth squad finally does not renew with the white entity. Arteta followed closely behind when Cesar played against Chelsea and Tottenham (where he scored a great goal) in the Youth League. The Gunner technician has come back for him.Precisely, it was in the Youth League where Borussia Dortmund fell in love in a match against them, where by the way was also Sancho and Isak. The Germans have good reports on the Madridista youth squad and have not lost sight of him since that meeting. These three teams have also seen how several First and Second Division entities have probed their situation. Gelabert is one of the largest pearls in the quarry. In fact, it is vital for Raúl from his return to the playing fields. In the youth stage he was going to be the only youth squad (of that age) to travel with Lopetegui, but an injury prevented him. While in the selection is indisputable in the Sub 19 and already looking to debut with the Sub 21.last_img read more

Antonio López relives the Europa League 2010: “The most special”

first_imgAntonio López, historical left back of Atlético (284 games between 2000 and 2012), has inaugurated the Memories of Legend that the club has launched to liven up this quarantine. The former player remembers with special affection the 2010 Europa League, the Hamburg final against Fulham (2-1) and the moment when he, as captain, lifted the trophy, the club’s first European title in 38 years.Reliving the final: “They are very emotional moments, I remember that we went two days because of the problem with the volcano. It is not usual to go with such advance notice and, from the inside and what a player sees, what you want is for the game to come already. It was hard to be So much there, we spent training, watching videos, being with colleagues, talking about what would happen … It had been many years (38) since Atleti had not won a European final. “ The 1-0: “Forlán scored. The play started on Reyes’ right, it fell to Kun, he made a half-shot, he reached Forlán and put it in. It was a moment of explosion, of thinking” uf, we have it close “…The 1-1: “They tied us relatively early, with a bit of bad luck. A rejection by a comrade who combed it and a rival (Davies) marks us. At that time perhaps people thought that we were going to come down, but inside it was the opposite : “Come on, kids, we’re going to get it out …”2-1: “In overtime, when Forlán scores, I have the memory of running away, taking off his shirt, everyone trying to grab him until I get there, I grab him, throw him to the ground, everyone on top of him, the bench, people screaming … explosion of joy and joy that is unique. Today I do not know how to explain all that feeling because it was wonderful. “Champions: “I remember the moment of the final whistle, I do have that in mind. The teammates ran to one side, to the other, the teammates entered … There I lowered the revolutions and went to the rival team, to congratulate them for the game, for the competition, and after shaking hands and giving hugs of consolation, I went back to celebrate with my teammates and we went up for the Cup. “A long-awaited triumph: “It was a dream final, all the fans lived it with great enthusiasm. We were looking forward to it and we were quite good at it. I remember it as the most special. I don’t know if it was the first, because we had been there for a long time … A satisfaction to be able to do it as captain “. Sensations: “We went out to the game with a little tension. I saw the teammates, including myself, that we were not the same, but we immediately let go and realized that this game could not escape us. From within, the feeling that we had is that we took that final, with 0-0, with 1-0 … “last_img read more

“Odegaard has the quality to play for Madrid, but I hope he stays”

first_imgHe is one of the fashionable players in Spanish football. When the competition had to be stopped because of the coronavirus, it literally went away. Confined to Donostia, he expects a league final that is presumably exciting for Real, and he analyzes it in a talk with Diario AS. Now that it looks like you are going back to training, what do you think of the ban on Real on April 13?He was very happy then because it meant going back to Zubieta because Real raised it in a very breathable way and with the least possible risk, everything was very controlled. And that’s why when we were told at the last minute that it couldn’t be done, my colleagues and I did not understand very well what had happened, when there are other jobs with a higher risk of contagion than we who go by car and return home without contact. with nobody. But we accept it and continue at home.And do you already know something about the new option for when the extension of the alarm state ends?Still nothing, for now. I have heard something on the news, but the club has not proposed anything to us. We are expecting.And they haven’t said anything about the tests that they are going to do to the players?Nothing. Because there is no date yet, because it is all very volatile and it is not known exactly when there will be something. It is hoped that there will be something, it is in the inkwell; but it is not well known when it will be done, or if it will be done in the end.What do you think about football tests being done indiscriminately when there are other people who are not being tested for the Covid-19?The truth is that it is swampy territory to get into. But speaking of mine, if we are going to play each other again, this is not like, for example, tennis, that you are far from the rival. Here you are in continuous contact with the rival with shocks and entries, and in the end if you have the virus, the contagion percentage is very high, and it would be good if, if the sport resumes, we know that there will be security and that there will be no there will be another regrowth because of this.In that sense, do you understand the words of your partner in Cadiz, Fali?Obviously the greatest risk in this matter is not us, but infecting people who are at risk. In the end we are going to have to do what is organized and we will surely do it in the best possible way. I am not going to say so emphatically that I will not play in case there is not 100% security of not contagion, because you do not know very well how everything will happen, but it is true that it would be good if everything were under control before play.Is there any concern among the players about what the return to the competition will be like?I have not had the opportunity to speak to everyone more extensively, but my opinion is one of uncertainty. Because it is a long time without exercising, because at home is not the same even remotely to training. So there is some uncertainty about how we are going to be able to compete and what decision is going to be made with the return of the league.Do you think it is feasible to play every 2 or three days in the final stretch of the league?There are many interests, because the league has bought the month of July to play, and there is a lot of money at stake. The idea is to play it and it will have to be adjusted to what they decide. We will abide by what they decide, because we are professionals and there will be the same recovery time for everyone, so everything will be more equal.How did you live last Saturday that the expected Cup final should have been played?You think that some life has been stolen from you, like all this time you have been doing nothing when you had to be living unique experiences. I am not to give importance to those things, because in the end we can enjoy it at another time, for sure.And what about the option of playing it behind closed doors?I don’t see it, or I don’t want to see it. What remains of the season behind closed doors is not the same as doing it in a final, and less in the one we have this year, because it is something very big. The main beneficiary of this final is the fans, and I hope it will continue. And what do you think about playing the final with the next season already started to ensure that it is played open door?It would be nice if he could find a moment to play that final as soon as possible, as long as things were under control. But, if you have to wait a little longer for it to be played open door, for me it would be a success. It would be a shame because the squads would not have the same players and it would not be the same prize for everyone, but it would have to be seen. It is sure that a date is found that does not have a risk of contagion and that the current template is, which is the most normal.How was the negotiation to reduce the players 20% of their salary?It did not cost anything to make the decision because if this team has anything, it is a well-furnished head, and we are privileged. It is not a matter of giving away money at any time, but there were other workers’ positions at risk. It seemed fair to us and the sacrifice cost little. We did the right thing.How many times have you thought about how the coronavirus has cut the best moment of your career?(Laughter) It’s funny because I’ve been listening to that for a long time. It is a pity because it cuts a good situation personally and collectively. But this stop will not stop me from growing as a player, and although the return is different, the scenario will lead us to the same. It is a matter of continuing to work with humility as until now.UEFA has said that the LaLiga quarter will go to the Champions League, and it is you if the competition does not resume. It is fair, isn’t it?I think so. Come on fourths, the regulations say, we have made merits for it, and I would not understand otherwise. But it is normal for me to think like this. Anyway, hopefully it can be played, because it would be a good sign.Does Athletic benefit more than not playing the final now in April? Because the Real was launched …Soccer is dynamic, and we can well beat anyone. But in a final everything is equal, no matter how bad or how well you arrive, it is a game in which the mental aspect is the most important. I cannot answer that question, because a final is a different film, and we will have to wait to see what happens.Do you want more end to face that team that in the end was not decided by his transfer?No the truth. The desire is due to the fact that it is a derby and the importance it has for everyone. On a personal level it does not matter anymore, because I know what I am worth and the importance I have for Real. I am delighted here, I was right coming to Real, I couldn’t have made a better decision.Athletic’s uncomfortable rival in a final, because of how he has passed the round, which proves to be competitive until the end …It is a team that is very clear. They always compete, they go after you, and they are very aggressive. It doesn’t matter how they play, because they will always be involved in the game and I think that in the end they will go for us, and the script was done, and it was a matter of us being focused and psyched to win .I can’t help but ask him about Odegaard, do you advise him to stay one more year at Real or to take the Real Madrid train?In the end you must decide for yourself. I have seen him train, I work with him and I know him. It has to see what time it is. I think he is very young, he still has many years ahead, and here at Real he has everything ideal and expensive to grow and improve, to become even bigger, and then decide what he wants. If Martin continues in this line, Madrid will wait for him and will be ready to catch him. If he is well, and at Real he is going to be well, Madrid is going to take him this, the year that well or whenever. He has already said in all the interviews that he has two years of assignment and that he wants to fulfill them, so there is not much more to say. Then he will decide, but hopefully we have another year here.But do you see him ready to start at Madrid or does he still have to mature at Real?I think yes, his individual quality, as a player, is top. He is a player to be in Madrid and play as a starter. The problem is that Madrid has a different way of playing, and it is not known how they can perform with that idea. In the Real it is of course in his sauce, because it is an ideal system for him and his privileged head to associate. Here he has everything to face, those in front are experts in doing what is best for him and those in the back give him the ball in the best conditions, and he is a total unknown. He has individual quality to play for Madrid, but hopefully he stays at Real.last_img read more
