Also another: the eleven that Calleja forms today will be formed by all Spanish soccer players. Its center of the field is quality and ball (Cazorla-Iborra-Trigueros).

Espanyol adds nine technicians in the Simeone stage

David Gallego, who would repeat at the beginning of this course, finished the last five games with good results, which captivated Chen so that in the future he endorsed his choice.Before that occurred, in the 2018-19 season Joan Francesc Ferrer Rubi was commissioned to return Espanyol to Europe, in the best campaign since 2006-07, but his disagreements with the club and the dizzying offers of Betis took him out from Espanyol. Pablo Machín and Abelardo Fernández complete the nine tenants of a chair that consumes trainers at a frantic pace, some for their poor results and others for not reaching an agreement with the board of directors. Diego Simeone took over Atlético in December 2011, when Mauricio Pochettino tried to qualify for Espanyol for Europe in his third season. Since then, up to nine coaches have passed through the blue and white club while Simeone has remained solely responsible for the rojiblancos. Nine years of instability for Espanyol despite not spending excessive difficulties to maintain the category, with this campaign as an exception, in which the situation on the table and the few days do not invite optimism.In November 2012 Pochettino was fired with the Espanyol colista. Javier Aguirre arrived (now in Leganés), who saved that course and kept the team in the middle zone in the 13-14 campaign. The Mexican left the bench and Sergio González assumed it, now in Valladolid. With the former player, who remained until December 2015, Espanyol never went down and reached a European semifinals. But he was fired. The Constantin Galca season ended, which prevented the miracle from descending.

Parejo, the Centennial captain through thick and thin

first_imgEven, that meets nine seasons at Valencia, During the course he earned the respect and recognition of Mestalla, something that he lacked in his turbulent beginnings in Valencia. Mestalla understands, assumes and respects his style of playing and the team revolved around its captain during the momentous phase of last season.His explosion of happiness, obviously, came along with that of all Valencianism. Parejo was the protagonist of the photograph that every fan expected, that of King Felipe VI handing him the trophy that accredited the Valencia Cup Champion in his Centennial year, and he also starred in another with which he wanted to pay tribute to David Albelda, leaning out of a hatch of the plane as soon as he landed in Manises with the Cup. In the final, curiously, it was the first and only time that Parejo was injured throughout all season; some inconvenience that did not prevent him from celebrating the title in style.DAILY AS ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Albelda and Parejo, celebrating titles with Valencia.DAILY AS Juan Ramón Santiago won four titles, the first in Valencia’s history, the 1941 Cup, and his first three Leagues. Behind him they raised trophies to heaven World, Monzó, Fives (two), Robert Gil, Paquito, Reel, Saura (two), Mendieta (two), Cañizares, David Albelda (3) and Ruben Baraja. To such a cast of myths he added his name last May Dani Parejo, the Centennial captain of the year, the captain of the Seville final. Valencia’s sports career in the year of its Centennial would surely have been another without the figure of Dani Parejo (Coslada, 1989). His was not a momentous goal, even if he scored 10, nor did he star in any specific feat. His was the regularity (he played up to 56 games), the constancy (53 of those starting games)But above all, what he was is a locker room leader and he always had faith in the team’s possibilities.“I refuse to end the season in January.” That message penetrated the team and also the environment. It even contributed to the club deciding not to make any drastic decision about Marcelino’s future when the results were not consistent. In fact one of the images of the Centennial season was that of his hug to the Asturian coach after scoring a goal in the match against Real Valladolid in Mestalla on January 12, days before Anil Murthy and Mateu Alemany traveled to Singapore to meet Peter Lim.center_img But Parejo was not only captain in the mature, he has also been in the tough. Coslada’s, because the Centennial year did not end in Seville, has served as a peacemaker in a locker room that was lit with the decision to do without Marcelino. He also did not understand the decision of the property, although he put the shield above and removed from the equation of discomfort the figure of Celades, whom I respect as a captain and soccer person.Parejo, in this sense, was in charge of breaking the silence of the team in London after the match against Chelsea (the footballers had refused to make statements until the club gave them an explanation), and recently, after the defeat in San Sebastián put the points on the “ies” and asked self-criticism of “all” the club members, from the players to the coaching staff and also the leadership team. So is today Dani Parejo, the captain who raised the Cup in Seville, a footballer who is breaking historical records and gaining ground in the ranking of black and white legends.last_img read more

L’Esportiu: Barça forced to abandon the signing of Neymar

first_imgThey believe that the Argentine forward of Inter de Milan is a priority, since the player of the PSG He has too high a salary and it will be difficult for the Catalan club to deal with it if his income falls too low, something that will surely happen due to the coronavirus pandemic: “If we have to significantly reduce the salary mass of the first team, how do you want Neymar to come, a player who charges more than 30 million euros net per season? Impossible.” 10 The newspaper L’Esportiu collects the words of a senior manager of the Barcelona on the possibility of hiring Neymar when the transfer market opens, something he considers unfeasible: “Obviously we would like to sign Neymar, but you have to be realistic and that he can return this summer is practically impossible. I would bet more on the signing of Lautaro than on the return of Neymar. That Neymar returns seems like a utopia.” 10 If it was estimated that Barcelona could achieve annual revenues of more than a billion euros, now the figure, according to the Catalan newspaper, is estimated to range between 600 and 800 million euros, which will force to reduce the salary mass of the staff. That is another reason why Lautaro is more affordable, since Inter is willing to listen to offers that include player exchanges to make the operation cheaper.last_img read more
