Aleñá: “Valverde already knew that I wanted to go”

first_imgLaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 8, 2020 Carles Aleñá was officially presented by Betis. The player assigned by Barcelona posed with his new shirt, which will feature the number 24, and after the classic act of videos and speeches dedicated to the player, including one by Marc Bartra, was submitted to the press questions. “This club has to go up by team, hobby … I have a crazy desire to play at Villamarín and I hope they are six months of glory“began Aleñá.Aleñá was questioned about the surprise that Valverde produced when he left Barça: “What I know is that I told Valverde that I wanted to come to Betis. There was a clause that let me decide my future, in summer there was already Betis interest and Valverde knew that I wanted to go. It was all very simple. “ During the speeches, Aleñá was about to get excited several times and justified it as a dream to be in Betis: “I talked a lot with Bartra and Álex Moreno and since you enter here you see what this is. Betis hooks you and I’m excited to be able to live this while being so young.

I come to a team with a lot of competition to play the maximum possible minutes. “And finally, Aleñá was totally convinced that Betis will star in a comeback in the second round that will allow him to reach European positions: “I see that it is entirely feasible for the team to climb, if I didn’t believe it, I wouldn’t have come here. We are convinced that the team has to go up, it is bad luck that Betis is in the position that is.

Leon turns with the Cup … but the goal is promotion

first_imgAira was saved from the sieve, although he was initially fired after not entering the playoff. However, when other options fall, The Berciano coach, endorsed by the manager, Felipe Llamazares, was returned to his position. And time plays in his favor. The numbers (42 points and 38 goals) have few precedents in the team, full of Throne names like Héctor Rodas, in his day Captain of the Levant, or the attackers Dioni (ten goals) and Kawaya, willing to return to the foreground.We speak, however, of an attractive team. In this five years, Cultural has scored 273 goals and in national football only Barça (467) and Madrid (411) are exceeded, that in two of those years exceeded one hundred. Lions look from the podium to Atlético (268) and Bilbao Athletic (260)The need for promotion permeates the daily work at the Cultural headquarters, which still takes advantage of its passage through Second. Since that May 28, 2017 there is an unknown devotion to the city team. One more year the social mass is around 7,000 subscribers. The Cup has two speeds for the Cultural. While Leon has turned over and will fill the stadium, the League looks sideways at the white house.

The reconquest of López Habas

first_imgATK’s main objective this season was to finish the regular season first and secure a place in the Asian Champions League, something that López Habas’ team could not achieve due to his irregular end of course. They are on time to achieve ISL, but Spanish prefers “a format without ‘play-offs’. Whoever finishes first is the great champion“:” There are teams that did not make an outstanding season, but won the last games and slipped into the privileged positions. That doesn’t reward the spirit of what an all-against-all league means. “López Habas, whose best results as head coach have always come from outside Spain, confesses not being concerned about how little his work is valued in his native country. “It is not something that worries me”, the Cordovan discovers, league champion in Bolivia, South Africa and the mentioned India. To regain the Hindu title, his ATK will have to prevail over Chennaiyin, a team that “started the championship poorly but in recent months counts its matches by victories.” His counterpart on the bench in Chennai, Owen CoyleHe knows what it’s like to lead in the Premier League – more than 100 games with Bolton and Burnley. “We arrived at the match after defeating Bengaluru, the reigning champion, but it will be difficult and it will be decided by details.” The meeting, played in Goa, will take place behind closed doors due to the coronavirus crisis. Before him, few Spanish coaches accepted the challenge of crossing the pond. In 1997, he took Bolivia to the final of the Copa América and on his return to Spain, success did not ignore him. He won two leagues and one UEFA as an assistant to Rafa Benítez at Valencia and later added to his logbook two adventures in South Africa and India, where he is about to reconquer the Super League (ISL). Antonio López Habas (Córdoba, 1957) already won the Hindu tournament in 2014 with ATK, who after two courses outside the ‘play-off’ turned to Spanish as a lifeguard. “Winning this title is very important for the club and for the city,” acknowledges the Andalusian hours before playing the final against Chennaiyin.“After finishing sixth and ninth in 2018 and 2019 respectively, ATK placed its trust in us. We had to make a new team to reach the competitive level that the club had since its founding in 2014,” adds López Habas, who this season has had five Spaniards at his command: Agus Garcia, Victor Mongil, Mandi bland, Javi Hernandez Y Edu Garcia: “Roy Krishna has been the scorer of the championship, but the level of foreigners and, in particular, that of the Spanish has been very high. They are good professionals and have very good technical training,” said the Cordovan. “His impact on the Indian players is very great. I remember that in 2014 we had Josemi. The other central, Indian international, copied everything: shin guards, warm-up routine … Up to that point they are important in a football like that of India, which is getting better and more professional “, he completes.last_img read more

Twelve Real Madrid players are in FIFA limbo on 30-J

first_imgIt was something that had been disturbing clubs, footballers and agents, and that Emilio García Silvero, legal director of FIFA, has highlighted more. “FIFA cannot extend contracts beyond June 30, but the transfer windows are not going to be the same and players will not be able to be registered. The market does not open on July 1 “, he said in Game Time. García Silvero gave more details, again not very reassuring due to the restrictions of the regulations: “If a loan ends on June 30, the player should theoretically return to his club but the enrollment window would not be open and the record would not be processed.” FIFA is recommending extensions to end the season, but cannot guarantee that this will be done: It will depend, in addition to the will of those involved, on the labor regulations of each country. Of course, if the contractual extensions were not given, the footballers could not be enrolled in another team.Future plans: sales, transfers …In the worst case scenario, 12 Madrid footballers would stay in no man’s land, a hypothesis everyone involved believes will not occur. They hope that some solution will be found to avoid this extreme. Areola, who wants to continue, should return to PSG. Luca Zidane and Borja Mayoral, currently on loan at Racing and Levante, they end their relationship with Real Madrid and, as the movements have not started, they would have no token. Odriozola would return from Bayern, as Achraf from Dortmund after two courses, Vallejo from Granada, Reguilón from Sevilla, Ceballos from Arsenal, Odegaard de la Real, Kubo from Mallorca and Óscar Rodríguez, two seasons later, from Leganés.When normality returns, for the majority, a definitive sale or a new assignment will be sought. Achraf and Odegaard, If they see it convenient, they have a place in 2020-21. Lunin, also, it has many options of being the second goalkeeper. AND Kubo, As he confessed this Sunday in AS, he sees himself with options and potential to follow that path. The rest is between very complicated and impossible. The coronavirus, like society in general, is going to change the world of soccer. What is still far from being known is how much and how. One of the problems derived from this complex situation is what will happen to the transferred or those who end their contract on June 30, with 12 cases in Real Madrid: Luca Zidane, Lunin, Odriozola, Achraf, Vallejo, Reguilón, Ceballos, Odegaard, Take Kubo, Óscar Rodríguez, Borja Mayoral and Areola. AS has told that in Spain the parties have begun to look for a solution with enlargement, but, as it usually happens with the RFEF, LaLiga and the AFE involved, it will not be easy. last_img read more
