The ‘Willian José case’ seems not to have lived its last chapter. The feeling is that until the winter transfer market closes this Saturday, everything can happen with the Brazilian. For now, the negotiations with Tottenham have cooled a lot, to the point that they are now non-existent. But Willian José expects a final offer from the Spurs that does not finish arriving, because his agents are doing their job moving the player to look for his exit in January.Y In the midst of that tense wait another actor has gotten into this tangle movie. This is David Moyes’s West Ham which has meddled in recent hours torpedoing the possible negotiation of the Royal with the Tottenham. The problem is that West Ham has been interested in the Brazilian to get his assignment until the end of the season, but with a purchase option. But it is not something that is contemplated in principle in the San Sebastian club. In case you have to leave now, The Royal Society prefers to sell to Willian José and not give it up, although with the tangled issue, and considering that the Rio player is determined to leave the Real, no scenario can be ruled out. Nor with Tottenham, which has already made a signing in this market, and says. Or have liquidity to raise the offer that does not exceed 20 million euros and which Anoeta considers insufficient. Willian José has again stayed out of the call in the match against Osasuna in Copa del Rey, punished by Imanol Alguacil, still angry with the attitude of the Brazilian player just a week ago, although he has defended it publicly in recent days .
The reconstruction process of Manchester United seems endless. Since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, four coaches and an interim technician have taken the reins of the ‘red devils’ bench without being able to return the club to its past glory. The last to take the helm of United has been a Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that in his little more than a year at the head of the Mancunian group has been constantly in the spotlight for the bad results reaped by the team after promising first matches. The Norwegian, who in summer let several of the players with the most United names go without signing substitutes and received criticism for it, now explains this decision: “You have to throw the house down and get rid of the players who have their heads elsewhere”. “It’s a reconstruction. Now we have players willing to run those extra meters, that’s the culture I want to implement: the culture of Manchester United,” continued the Nordic coach, who acknowledges not to be “the team of Sir Alex Ferguson, but the players we have have the right mindset and good personalities. ” “That for me is the first point to be met. You can’t stay here if you don’t have that mentality.”added the Norwegian. Romelu Lukaku, Ander Herrera or Alexis Sánchez were some of the players who left United this summer by not entering into the plans of a Solskjaer who recognizes that when he arrived “the mentality was not adequate”. “This group of players has not had the experience of winning, but that will come in the coming years. It is what they are working for and what those players are here for,” he said.
Surely there will be several changes in the initial eleven. Carlos Julio and Franquesa finalize their set-up and Álvaro Peña will also be low for the so-called “fear” clause when being assigned to the red team by the Manchego club. The central Sagnan and the Italian midfielder Lorenzo Crisetig could play their first minutes with the red jersey: “They are within the dynamics of the team. It is complicated for them because we can barely train with the maelstrom of the Cup. They are players who come from playing little, but must adapt. Their predisposition is very good and we are going to pull them at any moment. “The Mirandesista team wants to return to the path of victory in the League.Since 2020, he has accumulated five consecutive draws. “We are drawing a lot. We take care to protect ourselves, but whenever we say that it can be a match of goals because of the style of play of both, then there is no or vice versa. The Second has a very high level and that is why it costs to win,” says the Usurbil technician. Iraola has once again referred to the few rest days his team will have before facing the return clash of the Cup semifinals: “It is not that they wanted to benefit the Royal or anything like that and surely it was not contemplated that we were in this round, but as there is time to change it, I think they will.” At the moment, the San Sebastian team will play against Valladolid on Friday 28, while the reds will be measured at Girona on Sunday, March 1. The League for Mirandés returns with an important commitment to Albacete in Anduva. The reds do not want to neglect the domestic championship in search of achieving salvation in the category. Coach Andoni Iraola is worried about the physical condition of his players after the wear and tear of last Thursday in San Sebastián: “I am concerned about the issue of the legs. We have several players with discomfort that I do not know if we can use them, but if they do not come out, others will come out because we are aware that we play a lot. If the match were now, there would be several who could not jump to the grass. “
But since then, those of Gian Piero Gasperini have earned respect based on goals, such as the five they did to Milan and Parma or the seven to Torino. They are the third top scorers in Europe (62 in Serie A). Only PSG and City surpass them. The data says a lot and good about his collective style and also of the Ilicic, Zapata, Muriel and Papu Gómez. They must be restrained by Mangala and Diakhaby, who were only a couple against Logroñés in Las Gaunas and suffered against Socorro, Roni and Ñoño. Valencia, because not everything was going to be bad news, arrives in Milan with a football player called to be of the time: Ferran Torres. That of Foios, who was a baby when the tears of Cañizares in San Siro reflected the feeling of Valencianism after losing his second Champions League final against Bayern, is his vaccine against evil; the injection ché. Valencia went to Italy without Garay, Gabriel, Piccini, Florenzi, Kang-in Lee, Manu Vallejo, Coquelin and Rodrigo. Five of them, or even six, could well have made headlines against Atalanta today (9:00 pm, Movistar Champions League). But neither are there and several are not expected to return. We will see what happens with Rodrigo, who accumulates synovial fluid in his knee and who yesterday traveled to Vitoria to consult with Dr. Mikel Sánchez. As much as Celades has become accustomed to preparing each game with the post, such payroll is not the best way to face the round of 16, round that the club steps on for the first time since it is owned by Peter Lim.The infirmary and the sensations that the Valencia transmits far from Mestalla lately (Yeda, Mallorca and Getafe are an example) they make him less favorite than he probably was when the draw was held. Back in December, Valencia came from being the leader of his group, leaving out Ajax at home, while Atalanta, a rookie in the tournament and whose greatest European milestone is to reach the semi-final of the 1988 Recopa, had sneaked into The next round with only 7 points.
His good work, beyond the historical classification for the Champions League quarterfinals, has caught the attention of several clubs (United, included) and Ivan Gazidis, CEO of Milan, is willing to pay any price to take it as a ‘manager’ to the English, that is, coach plus sports director. So much so that it has caused a tremendous discrepancy with the Milan sports management, occupied by Boban and Maldini, by making this decision and forcing them to dispense with Pioli without being consulted. Zvonimir has already left San Siro and Paolo, according to the Italian press, will assess his situation at the end of the season.The Croatian did not hesitate to stoke Gazidis after what happened. “Rangnick? They closed an agreement with him in December without telling us anything,” he said. for Il Giornale after purchasing the club’s communication policy with the “North Korea” regime.A civil war between two legends and a ‘newcomer’ by a Ralf Rangnick, who also hides his taste for a change of scenery and who will be given full powers in San Siro for reconstruction. “Can I be someone who has influence in the development areas of the whole club? Otherwise you would only be getting half of what I can be able to give,” he said months ago when talking about a possible interest by Manchester United in your hiring in these same terms. In Milan, you will have to carry the heavy slab of history, just the one you had to build in Leizpig. In 2016, the mission for which he was hired was completed within the time frame set by the owners.. The logo of the red bulls was in the Bundesliga, something for which he was even forced to go from the offices to the bench, where he later also opted for emerging talents such as that of Nagelsmann, whom he has put at the helm of the ship at its peak after its success at Hoffenheim. Ralf Rangnick lived this Tuesday, surely, one of the happiest nights since in 2012 Red Bull changed his life. In 2009, the Austrian energy drink company wanted to enter German soccer and settled in Leizpig, where it bought its place to play the Oberliga creating RB Leizpig. Three years later, after winning the Cup with Raúl y Jurado’s Schalke 04 in 2011, the one from Backnang entered the Red Bull factory, where he has performed successfully.Under the orders of former Liverpool player Gérard Houiller, football director for the Red Bull group, Rangnick became the sports director for both projects of the energy brand in Europe: Salzburg and Leizpig. Upon arrival, he redefined the transfer policy in Germany, betting on young talent for its development and subsequent sale.The list of players who reached the elite after passing there is long and outstanding, being Haaland together with Timo Werner the last two jewels in the crown that also feature the European champions with Liverpool, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita. Elite that he never approached as a player, staying in semi-professional categories of German soccer.
Today is March 19. Father’s Day. Hence Rayo has shared Ander García’s emotional letter. The little one is the son of the red-headed captain Alberto, who accompanies him as he writes and reads a very special letter. It is for its content and its recipients. It goes for them, their new heroes. Those from before used to play soccer, but those from now are bedridden fighting against the coronavirus, or wear a gown and they fight the disease taking care of all of us, or are who help us on a daily basis from delivery trucks, pharmacies, supermarkets, gas stations … Ander sends them a message of hope and gratitude. His and that of a whole society.Hi.My name is Ander and I am 7 years old.For days everything has changed. Before, I used to go see all my heroes on the soccer field and I loved cheering for my team. Now everything is different. My father has explained to me everything that is happening, what is coronavirus and that there are many malita people in the hospital. They are alone, without anyone being able to kiss or hug them and the only way I have to show my love is to write this letter to them. From now on you are my true heroes. All of you who are ill and fighting to heal yourself; those who wear white coats; those that help us in pharmacies and supermarkets and those that transport food so that nothing is missing. In other words, all those anonymous people who help our lives go on.As my dad says, everything will be fine. You keep fighting to heal yourselves, that we from home will help to end everything. From today all of you are my favorites.A very strong kiss.The players congratulated their parentsMany families are forced to celebrate days like this away from their loved ones due to quarantine, but that does not prevent memories and congratulatory messages. Several rayistas have shared theirs on the networks. It is the case of Velázquez (“Happy day to all the dads. To thank mine for everything he has done. If I become half the good father of what he is, I think I will be one of the best in the world”), Catena (“I would love to spend this day with you, but we all have to stay home. I am very proud of you for the way you take care of all of us and for the values that you have instilled in my little sister and me”) , Mario Suarez (“For me you are an example to follow, Dad. A pity that we cannot spend this day together, but we will soon celebrate it”) or Nose (“Thank you for training me as a person and teaching me those values, I see myself reflected in you. Always together”).
Frank Lampard was found when he signed as coach of the Chelsea with two difficulties: FIFA sanction to sign and march the club’s flagship, Eden Hazard. Despite this, the English coach has managed to keep the London team afloat and although he has not reaped great results, the season at Stamford Bridge is not a disaster either.The TAS reduced the sanction to those of Roman Abramovich but they decided not to make any brilliant transfer. If they announced that for the next campaign Hakim Ziyech would join, from Ajax, in exchange for 40 million euros. In this next transfer period Chelsea have almost 100 million euros unspent for big Arrivals. Yes at Chelsea offices goal number one is Jadon Sancho, is not the only name of young crack that Chelsea has on the table. Marina Granovskaia’s intention is to Britishise the team and they have looked at one of the young sensations of the Premier for much of the season: Declan Rice. Defensive pivot and great recuperatorDeclan Rice is the future of England whose selection debuted a year ago, after playing in the lower categories of Ireland. He even went on to play three friendly matches with Martin O’Neill’s top team. For Gareth Southgate it is already a fixed among the 23 selectable, despite his seven internationals alone. Jorginho is more than likely to return to Italian football, despite having a contract until 2023, since it was one of Maurizio Sarri’s requests and without the Italian coach at Chelsea his continuity is hanging by a thread. Lampard would not put many expeditions on the go as long as may have Declan Rice on his roster. As noted Sky Sports, The West Ham midfielder is the target of the great clubs in England. Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal and City have the young talent, 21, as number one on the agenda for next season. Nevertheless, It is the whole of Stamford Bridge who starts with the advantage to take over the services of the English international. Rice was already a member of his quarry until 2013 before moving to West Ham. Declan Rice is in her third season in the Premier with West Ham with whom he has already played a hundred games. Its best performance is like defensive pivot, where he can develop his best facet, which is the recovery of the ball, but he has also performed well as a central defender. Powerful in aerial play He also has good control and distribution of the ball. Its market value, according to Transfermarkt, it is 55 million euros but for his technician, David Moyes, It is a fundamental pillar and its exit will be for much more millions. A fierce battle is expected in the Premier for his signing this summer.
Real Madrid is in mourning again. In the morning of this Thursday Goyo Benito has passed away at the age of 73, an icon of Madrid from the 1970s, where he made a name for himself as a brave defender and disputed 420 games. A long period between 1969 and 1982 in which ex-soccer player from Toledo conquered eleven titles with the white shirt: six leagues and five Copa del Rey. Benito had long suffered from an illness. Gregorio Benito Rubio (10-21-1946, 2-4-2020) was born in Puente del Arzobispo (Toledo), arrived at the White House with 17 years and before succeeding in Madrid he was loaned to Rayo to get some fun. He debuted in white on October 26, 1969 in Atocha against Real Sociedad and that day he played left-back and shared band with Gento. That day he lived his first anecdote with the current honorary president. After receiving a bad pass from Benito, Gento said to him: “At the bottom of the lad, at the foot”, to which Benito replied: “As you say Don Francisco.”Benito would end up being a Real Madrid institution and nicknamed Brave Ax, for his temperament as central. A bravery that led him to suffer numerous injuries during his sports career, in which had to be operated eight times. He also had an important presence in the National Team, where went international 22 times. After retiring, he went on to perform various jobs in the entity until his final retirement a few years ago. Rest in peace.
Monaco outside Europe: “I was pissed off a lot with the news. In the last game we played the best first part of the season and in the end we lost because of two details. I left that game very angry because it was not deserved, they came two or three times Today when we have seen the news we have thought about it. For nonsense, outside Europe. “Coronavirus risk: “If they make this decision it is because they believe it is the right thing to do. I think they will try, but they will not play again. In a Sports City, we are between players, staff and staff of 55 or 60 people. Barça or Madrid will have 150 people. It is impossible that in these weeks of competition there will not be someone infected. There are too many things that make me see that it is impossible to play again. I wish we could return, but it will be difficult. “ Cesc Messi and the year of Tata: “If Barcelona has won so many titles in recent years, it is partly thanks to Messi. With Tata Martino we made the best first lap in the history of LaLiga and Leo was injured. Tito, Abidal … They are a lot of things that touched the group. From inside it stayed there. Messi’s injuries, Chelsea’s penalty … “.Possible return of Neymar: “He is an outstanding player, with conditions at the level of Ronaldinho. He is a crack that makes the difference when he wants. In January we played with him twice in a few days and he only killed us. In his second and third year in the Barcelona was flying. No wonder Leo and Luis like to have him on the team, at any time he can attend, dribble, dribble. Neymar has everything to be the best. “Neymar person: “He is a very good boy. He is like a child who is always happy, he likes to enjoy life, he has a good time. The fact that whoever leaves Barça does not return … They are things of the club, each one has their own rules”.Why did you leave Barça?: “My departure from Barça began to take shape due to the match against Atlético de Madrid. I had won the starting position and we lost LaLiga. They annulled a goal for me out of play, when I didn’t participate in the play. If you win LaLiga there Anyway, everything would have changed, maybe I would have stayed. Soccer are small details. “Final against Santos: “Normally you don’t enjoy a final: tension, equality … It rarely happens and I enjoyed some at Barça.” It has everything to be the best Cesc Fábregas has had a chat with Míster Chip on the Instagram account of the AS collaborator. The Monaco footballer has given his opinion on the suspension of Ligue 1 and the decision of the competition on the champion and the teams that will play Europe. The midfielder has shown his rage, since he and his teammates lost the possibility of playing in the Europa League due to a defeat against Nice, created by a Dolberg goal in the 92nd minute. However, he believes that football should not return, since it is difficult for there to be no contagion between the squads in the remaining weeks of competition. The golden generation: “It was so nice that one day they have to do something collective with all of us who were in those victories in the championships. It could be nice in the future to get together to live another game against the Netherlands or Italy.”Consequences: “Then regrets will come. The first thing is health. 99% of the players want to play and that people come to see us, but if you stop to think about it …”. It is impossible that in these weeks of competition there will not be someone infected Cesc on Neymar Footballers are not immune: “The problem in France was bigger because a 23-year-old Montpellier boy has been in the ICU. If it happens to someone like that …”.Selection: “I would have been delighted as Silva and Andrés Iniesta to go any other way, speak to the mister in private and announce it; but I already spoke with the person who had to speak and it seemed to me that he would return, later for things that I don’t know, I did not return anymore They are trains that pass, moments that you have to take advantage of. I looked good to go with Conte, because I had a tremendous year, I had hopes but they did not call me and once I was 31 I saw that nothing, and with Luis Enrique I see it practically impossible. It was a shame. “
