Raúl looks for a miracle with Castilla in 2020

first_imgRaul face your second calendar year as a coach of Real Madrid Castilla. The white legend has a big challenge with the subsidiary: the promotion to Second, which Castilla does not achieve since 2011-12 season, with Alberto Toril on the bench. You won’t have it easy, since your team closed 2019 at eight points playoff of ascent (with one game less) and only three of the descent. Five wins, seven draws and five losses leave their future in the air, given that the coach’s contract It expires in summer.The IFcome and go have been a constant since the beginning of the course. Castilla hthrashed to good teams like Getafe B (3-0) and Rayo Majadahonda (3-1)but has also fallen defeated before Athletic B (2-0), Racing de Ferrol (1-2), Sporting B (4-2) and Ibiza (1-2). And has conceded 21 goals, almost as many as he has marked (23). But if this Castile is characterized by something, it is by tie: after Melilla (8 games), he is the second team that has finished his appointments most times in tables: seven. Still, Rthere he hopes to follow the trail of Zidane, that by this time of his first season in Castilla he had won eight games (he finished sixth that season, with 58 points). The Castile has the younger template of the category next to Las Palmas Atlético (19 years on average). An incentive for training, but a result level handicap for inexperience The planning of the first staff has hurt the subsidiary: unknowns about him Rodrygo’s future (played against Langreo and Rayo Majadahonda, who scored a goal) and Kubo (played a friendly against Alcorcón) were other inconvenience for Raúl, also stopping the signing of the forward Bell, already agreed.In the goal, Raúl has not had it easy either: Altube has combined the first team with the subsidiary and not regularly. Despite these mismatches, Raúl has won the trust of some of his players, especially César Gelabert, He returned on November 2 after his clavicle injury and is indisputable.The return to activity will be intense: Castilla receives this Sunday at Melilla (11: 30h.), then he will travel on day 8 to Vigo to play his match against Celta B (postponed since December 20 by the alert that Galicia lived) and on January 12 will receive the visit of Las Rozas (12:00).last_img read more

Mario leaves the session and continues the plague of injuries

first_imgBad luck, in the form of injuries, is priming with Lightning. The first gravity came in preseason, when Velázquez suffered a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee. The central left the concentration and had to go through the operating room, but today faces the final phase of his recovery. That was the first, not the last. Baby followed, who also broke the crossed right knee in the month of November, moment when the end was sweet. A similar diagnosis was received by the forward Ulloa less than a week ago. The medical part reflected a “rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament and the inner side of his left knee.” The bad news continues for Paco Jémez. The last one occurred during this Wednesday’s session, when Mario Suarez had to retire with discomfort 40 minutes to start. At that setback we should add the absences of Saveljich and Andrés Martín in training. The defender had to be replaced in the match against Tenerife by some left twin problems and the midfielder has been ill since last week. “He caught the flu. Little by little it is better, but I was neither to train nor to enter the locker room because I could infect someone. We are very fair, but we cannot control it, “Paco confessed in the previous crash of Heliodoro. Another of the most important ailments has affected the captain. Alberto García has had to go through the operating room twice because of the cartilage of his left knee. The discomfort began in late September and, first, he was diagnosed with synovitis. The goalkeeper improved and returned to training, but the pains soon reappeared. There the injury hit the face. A few days after his last arthroscopy, Comesaña was also intervened. The Galician, because of a “bilateral inguinal hernia” and will return, approximately, in mid-March. More or less by that date, Pozo would have to return. The midfielder was injured against Extremadura with “a break in the adductor major of the right thigh. ” To all this list of casualties, the goalkeeper Morro joins, with discomfort after the Cup.last_img read more

The current dynamics of Girona is of direct ascent

first_imgIn Girona the state of optimism has been decreed. The rojiblanco team is showing reliability and commitment and the results are coming. The fans see reasons to rely on the promotion to Primera, but the costumes try to escape because they do not want to make the same mistakes of the past. Yes, the current streak of the Girona group is of direct ascent.Pep Lluís Martí’s They have managed to add 11 of the last 15 points played (three wins and two draws in five games) and only two teams have managed to keep up the pace, not beat him, in this last period of competition. Tenerife and Zaragoza have also added 11 points out of 15 (without telling the Aragonese the draw against Mirandés in the postponed duel) and present an identical goal difference, +4. Thanks to these last numbers, Girona has left ostracism behind and has not only settled in the playoff positions, but also looks at the direct ascent. Precisely Zaragoza, second, leads them by six points, and Cádiz, leader, is seven. A cutout difference considering that the rojiblanco team is in an exceptional state and the Cadizians in the last five games have left valuable points. They have added seven points of 15 after two wins, one draw and two losses. But there is more because at the end of the course, the last three teams that will visit Montilivi will be curiously the first three currently classified: Zaragoza will arrive on day 37, Zaragoza 39, Cádiz and 41 will receive Almería. Reasons are giving to trust (in this second round they have 14 points, four more than after the first eight games of the first), but you can not fall into an excess of confidence because Martí has ​​not only lived an identical streak to the current one in Girona, but surpassed it, and then the team has sunk. In the first six games of the coach on the red and white bench were able to add 14 points out of 18 possible, but then came a blow that made them distance themselves completely from the objective of the ascent. From day 20 to 22, before Numancia, Mirandés and Rayo, they were unable to reap a point (three losses) and this made them stagger and fall into nobody’s area. Now the ship is straightened, following a good route and the next two meetings will be vital to confirm it: on Sunday they visit a Mirandés who will have an eye on the Copa del Rey and a day later they will receive in Montilivi al Albacete. The La Mancha, with one game less, are just one point down.last_img read more

There is another caveat, the goal with which Madrid got rid of precisely the City Road of the Eleventh, in the semifinals of 2016.

De Jong leaves Griezmann in evidence

first_imgThe two brand new signings of this summer, Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann accepted the challenge proposed by Barça TV to know who knows more about the Classic. Dutch and French they underwent a battery of questions, demonstrating his football knowledge about Barcelona and Real Madrid.In any case, Griezmann was the one who came out worse off the stake. When asked to say three coaches in the history of Real Madrid, the striker only gave two names: “Zidane and Mourinho”. Even more offside stayed when asked to say three tourist places to visit in Madrid, literally blank, with the excuse that “did not leave home”, and before the eyes of a strange De Jong, who reminded him that he had been in the Spanish capital for several years.Nor did he answer the question of three players from the Masia who played the Classic last season at the Camp Nou by saying “Piqué, Busquets and Messi”reminding him that The Argentine did not participate. At least Griezmann was more successful when he was claimed by four French players who have played a Classic: “Abidal, Henry, Giuly and I” how also to the question of three historical strikers of Real Madrid: “Ronaldo, Raúl and Morientes”, curiously forgetting Cristiano Ronaldo, the top gunner in the history of the white club. Instead, De Jong proved to be a walking encyclopedia about the Classic, answering practically without blinking all the questions. From three current Barcelona players with more than twenty classics, “Messi, Piqué and Busquets”, three 5-0 scorers in 2010, “Villa, Xavi and Jeffren”, four Dutch players who have played a Classic, “Cruyff, Kluivert, Overmars and Frank de Boer “or three historic Real Madrid midfielders:” Zidane, Guti and Makelele “. The only failure of the Dutchman came to the question of four players who have played in Barcelona and Real Madrid, since he could only say three: “Figo, Eto, and Ronaldo”, regretting when Michael Laudrup was also told, among others.So, the final score of the five questions that each one had to answer about the Classic was of a clear 4-2 in favor of the Dutch.last_img read more

Monterrubio: “It is the best course in the history of Granada”

first_imgWhat would it mean for Granada to reach the final?It is history that we have achieved, which is to reach the semifinals. 61 years later we are in an enviable situation and that nobody could imagine. We will go slowly, we will play the semifinal and we will do everything possible to pass.The city is turning with this semifinal. Flags around the city, the institutions supporting the team … is this the most important thing they have achieved?Absolutely, the most important thing above the sporting result is the identification we are having with the city. It was one of our strategic lines. We are overcome and proud to have generated this illusion and this emotion. Grateful to everyone, public institutions, businessmen, clubs, fans … the whole city and I dare to say that the province. They are all excited and that is a responsibility for us, because all that illusion that we have generated now we have to respond. It is the germ of a seed for the future.What benefits will the Copa del Rey bring you?We prioritize the social aspect. In the Cup we are not thinking about euros, because we do not know what the economic distribution will be, we are only thinking about the social.Is it the best season in club history?I think that without a doubt, the best season and I insist, not only for the sporting result, but for the generated around the club. 37 points and semifinalists of cup with options to spend playing the last game in our house. They have not given us anything.Salvation is practically done …It will be done when it is mathematically.When it is achieved, to think about Europe?When I am a mathematician, we will continue dreaming in the next game that we have to win it and continue adding points. The club and the team have ambition, we are not going to stop it, but we are not going to set goals.Even Miguel Ríos has adapted his mythical song ‘Welcome’, how did the idea come about?At the beginning of the season with the light show we decided that the Welcome was the idea, because Miguel is from Granada and a song called welcome was easy. And in one of the visits with Juan Vida the idea came up. We met at Wanda and I told Miguel the day is day 5 and he resumed it with great enthusiasm. I know that he has been working and we have been in almost daily contact and with the help of Luis García and have created something that I think is a bombshell for us. We are deeply grateful to Miguel.A lot of work is being done on the prolegomenaWe are trying to warm the environment, not the party, that this is another matter. We want everyone to feel that warmth, from the club and from the hand of the rocks and bleachers of animation we are having different initiatives to live a great atmosphere.Athletic has more experience in this type of games and also has not lifted a title for many years, does that make it more dangerous?More makes us not win. He is a rival that I think is the second club with the most Copa del Rey titles in history. He has more experience than us, but this is a game, we started 1-0, but there is a minimum of 90 minutes ahead.Can it be traced?Without a doubt, we are going to try it, it is a difficult game against a complicated opponent that made things difficult for us there. Now it’s different. We are in Los Cármenes with more than 20,000 faithful who are going to take us on volandas. Will President Jiang Lizhang come to the semifinal today?I can’t confirm it, but it’s not easy because of the coronavirus issue. He’s trying to come, but we don’t know if he can. It is in China and we do not know if you can leave with guarantees.He will be happy with the season the team is leading.Everyone inside and outside the club is in love with the team season and you can’t ask for more. That does not mean that we are not still ambitious. We will not settle for what we have, we will not settle for semifinals or 37 points, but we will continue with the line from match to match.It is a complicated season with up to three long-term injuries.The team is competing exceptionally. We started with a short staff, mainly because of our economic capacity, we were forced and in the end we had to stretch for those long-term injuries, but the one that has come out has given a very high level. The competitive gene is in the team and everyone is giving an extraordinary level and there is one of the secrets.The signing of Antoñín is an incorporation looking more to the future.We bring you for the future. He is a very young boy who has high hopes placed in him, but you have to give him peace of mind and little by little. He has no responsibility now only to help us, to be a complement to the future. He is a boy that we had been seeing for months and we already tried in December to bring him. We have been able to bring him even out of the market due to Neyder’s injury.In addition it has also been beneficial for Malaga that needed that economic injection.We think it is good for all three parties. And I think LaLiga also sees it with good eyes because it helps the future of Malaga.Perhaps the ‘bad’ thing about the great season of Granada is that its players will have many girlfriends …It’s not bad, it’s consubstantial with football. If we had no offer and they ignored us, that would be bad. We have had offers and we have rejected them all. In principle this club refers to the clauses of its players. Nor does any player want to leave this project at this time. The club does not want any of its players to abandon this project. There are many rumors, but we are all happy and at ease, it is complicated because neither of us wants to break this relationship. In January it was non-negotiable that no one left the project because sports are the first priority, in summer we will see.The best winter signing has undoubtedly been the return of Fede Vico to the team and at a great level.It is a great addition. It has been a very hard season for him and we were all looking forward to joining the group and we are very happy to recover him.Current affairs rule, what would happen if the coronavirus arrives? Do you already have a protocol?There is a working group in LaLiga already created and we are receiving information on how everything is going daily and we will follow the advice they give us at all times. Hopefully it can be controlled and does not affect our competitionWhat result do you see in today’s game?I dare not give a result, I say that Granada passes the tie, suffering, because we are the club of eternal struggle, but I am hopeful and confident that we will overcome the tie. I know we are going to suffer.last_img read more

La Real will return to Zubieta with the entire squad in full

first_imgThe month and a half of hard confinement has come, paradoxically, well to the Royal Society, than You will have the entire squad of your first team to return to training in Zubieta. We will see whether to be able to complete the rest of the season, or simply to regain the sensations of exercising in their usual place of work. Because it is not at all clear that soccer will be able to be played in the coming weeks, no matter how much LaLiga, the Federation and the CSD are taking all the steps to try it. Be that as it may, when the txuri-urdin team returns to the Zubieta facilities, something they have not done since March 13 of this year, Imanol Alguacil will not have any player occupying a space in the infirmary.And is that the coach from Oriotarra was awaiting the final recovery of his captain, Asier Illarramendi. And the Mutriku midfielder has taken advantage of this time without being able to leave the house to finish completing his recovery and is ready to return to work with guarantees with the rest of his teammates. Actually, before all the events with this coronavirus crisis precipitated, ‘Illarra’ had already started training under Imanol, entering part of the sessions, doing exercises of less impact and requirement, to gradually increase the intensity of their work. His feelings with his boots on, playing the ball and working to the rhythm of the rest of his teammates were quite positive. At home he has completed his recovery, and is ready to return, as he himself recently said. In a time full of bad news, this may be one of the best for Real fans. Why Imanol has not been able to play any day of this season with all his staff in good condition. And if football resumes at the end, he will be able to face the demanding final stretch of LaLiga, with eleven games presumably in just a month and a half, with all his players in good condition, an aspect to take into account, assuming that all will be necessary the possible rotations to be able to confront with Eda guarantees the final straight of the championship in order to secure the European place that he has today in his hands, with eight points of advantage with respect to the eighth classified.Yes, They still don’t know in the realistic dressing room when they will be able to start the individual training sessions in Zubieta, something that the players are looking forward to. At Real they are waiting for the League meeting with the clubs this Monday to start making decisions and organizing. The forecast marks that on Wednesday the 6th and Thursday the 7th of May they will test the Covid-19 to the players, coaches and the rest of the first team staff, so that at the earliest until Friday they cannot start exercising in Zubieta following the protocol set by the CSD and that in the Real they have it more than advanced. Remember that 48 hours must pass to know the test results. Before, the players had to sign a consent written by the club doctor, because the tests are done under medical prescription, and permission to return to training can only be done by the head of the medical services of each club.last_img read more
