Corral, a future option to occupy the left side

first_imgSometimes the simplest solution is the most practical. Given that Fede Barba seems to have lost Sergio González’s favor to occupy the left-handed side because of his irregular performances and that Nacho Martínez is still injured, the coach from Pucelano has called Roberto Corral, left-handed side for the first training sessions of the first team. of the subsidiary, with the aim of closely observing its evolution and diagnosing whether it is prepared to occupy that position in the first team, although Sergio González, in the press conference today, ruled out his participation before Leganés. Remember that the Valladolid player already played in the Copa del Rey against Tudelano, being among the most prominent, although it is difficult to draw conclusions when the opponent is a Third Division team. The truth is that with the Italian on the exit ramp, AEK Athens’s interest in the player is a preferred issue in Greece, Corral’s moment in the first team seems to be this. Despite the test with Moyano in the left-handed side against Valencia, the coaching staff is looking for a player who is in his natural position so that the squad could have his chance in the next meetings.The departure of Barba from the club in Italy ensures that Chievo Verona, the club to which the player belongs, works in the operation, will depend in part on the future of Valladolid. Although it is difficult for the Italian to continue in Valladolid, his non-departure would complicate the arrival of Corral to the first team. If, on the contrary, Barba leaves, it will be the moment in which both the coaching staff and the sports management must decide whether to go out to the market or give the opportunity to the youth player.last_img read more

Bordeaux went ahead with a goal from Hwang to a set ball, but minutes before he had had several dangerous arrivals, all by the right wing of a Kehrer who again showed a lot of weakness in defense. The Korean topped a corner in the first suit and anticipated Kehrer, who lost the mark very easily. To top it off, Thiago Silva was injured from the field due to muscular discomfort.Despite this, the Parisians were able to react soon. Cavani got his 200th goal with the PSG shirt after a magnificent center by Ángel Di María. The striker anticipated Koscielny and finished off with great force. Minutes later, Cavani was about to make one of the goals of the season after finishing off a side center that crashed into the post. Costil also avoided PSG’s second after a magnificent one-on-one stop against Mbappé.

Di Maria returned to attend, this time to Marquinhos, who finished off with a shoulder a foul dumped by the noodle. When it seemed that it was not going to happen anymore in the first part, Sergio Rico made a serious mistake, after impacting his clearance on Pablo and finishing the ball in the goal. The loan from Sevilla was performing well in Paris, but due to mistakes like this he never settled in the whole of Spain. Sergio Rico returned to be protagonist at the beginning of the second half. First to make a serious mistake again and allow a very clear opportunity for Kalu, and then to redeem himself from his sung and make a great stop at a shot from Pablo with a stopped ball.As during most of the season, the PSG ended up winning by the individual quality that its attack players have. Marquinhos doubled in another play with the ball stopped, and Cavani assisted Mbappé in a counterattack for the French international to make the fourth of Tuchel’s. Two goals that practically left Bordeaux sunk, unable after the third goal to reach the goal of Sergio Rico.However, the PSG again granted in defense and Rubén Pardo, who had entered the second half, scored a great goal for the squad. The former Real Sociedad scored his first goal with the shirt of the Girondins de Bordeaux, and did so spectacularly. The VAR annulled an Icardi goal for Mbappé’s offside, and Neymar lost his temper at the end of the game, after committing a very hard foul on Adli, which caused the Brazilian’s second yellow.center_img The PSG beat the Girondins de Bordeaux 4-3 at a goal festival in Paris and Neymar was expelled by two yellows, the last in the time of prolongation … in full carnivals in Brazil and rounding his sister’s birthday (he is March 11). The Parisians suffered enough to break an opponent who went ahead on the scoreboard and had options to tie at the end, in a game that brought out again the defensive deficiencies of the team of the French capital.Tuchel was aware that the game was more important than it might seem, since a defeat against Bordeaux could increase the nerves in a jagged squad following the week-round defeat at Dortmund.

Rüstü: “I will not forget everything that Barça did for me when I was dying of the coronavirus”

first_imgYes, they gave me great support during and after my illness. In particular, Carlos Naval and Chemi Teres conveyed the good wishes of the president and the club. At times like these, small details should not be forgotten. I will not forget everything that Barça did for me when I was dying of the coronavirus. He GAVE ME LIFE.I see you excited …I want you to know that I am always at Barcelona’s disposal. I want to express my infinite thanks to everyone, especially Mr. Bartomeu.What do you remember of your time there?It was a unique season for me and mine. I am proud to have been part of this great family. I remember that I made a good World Cup in Korea and Japan 2002 and that made my signing for them possible. It is truly unique. The day to day there is very special and it is difficult that someday it will be erased from my mind. People are fabulous and loving. I could never tell you something bad about that experience.Coincided with Xavi …Yes! I had the opportunity to play with Xavi and be his friend.

Always loving and with a smile to cheer me up.Do you see him as a Barça coach?When he was a soccer player he did great services to the club. I think he will do great things when he comes as a coach.

Gareth Bale: the decision that changed his life ten years ago

first_imgWith the Spurs He also played regularly on the left side the first two seasons, with Martin Jol (he used a game above), Juande Ramos and Redknapp himself. But it was in the third campaign, the second of the English coach, when the ‘reconversion’ took place. “I was low on morale. Also, if he was hit, he had a hard time recovering because he didn’t have the body to do it. But it was gaining body and presence in the team. When he got over that bump, I put him on the edge, ”recalled the AS coach in May 2015. That process began with specific decisions, in January 2010, against Leeds, on March 6 against Fulham and seven days later against Blackburn. But it was on April 24, 2010, against Manchester United (3-1 loss) when Bale played his last game as a fixed left back. From that day on, with very few exceptions, it was installed in the upper area, as an extreme. His stride and firing power invited Redknapp to execute that move. Bale will be eternally grateful to him. “I always wanted to be an attacking player, I never wanted to be a defender. No offense. I was removed from the left back because I have never fulfilled my defensive responsibilities. So Harry put me in a more offensive role. Since he did, I’ve never looked back “Bale stated in Sport Magazine. It was at this point that he left Europe with his mouth open on October 20, 2010. The Welshman offered in San Siro one of the most impressive exhibitions in the Champions of the last decade. Tottenham lost 4-3 inferior to Inter, but everyone talked about how Bale managed a hat-trick after ‘eating’ Maicon, voted the best ‘2’ on the continent by UEFA that same year … “Gareth destroyed it,” said Van der Vaart in the San Siro mixed zone. A star was born.GIUSEPPE CACACE & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>GIUSEPPE CACACE (AFP) Gareth Bale turns ten without looking back. It was in 2010 when a decision by Harry Redknapp, coach of Tottenham, changed his life. Without that daring move, perhaps he would not have astonished Europe, decorated the buildings in Times Square with his image, conquered Florentino Pérez, played in Madrid, or won four Champions … In his second season on the bench of the Spurs, The English coach started the ‘conversion’ of the Welshman. It went from the left side to the end and, from that moment, nothing was the same for Gareth …Bale became known as a left-back at Southampton, where he arrived thanks to the eye of Rod Ruddick, who discovered him when he was 9 years old. His left foot and speed defined him. There are two data that perfectly reflect the superiority of its qualities: at school a teacher forbade him to play with his left hand and at 14 he was able to run 100 meters in 11.4 seconds. He was the second youngest player to debut in Southampton history, aged 16 years and 275 days (April 17, 2006) and He soon began to stand out as ‘3’, showing off his stride to play with space ahead. It shone, although it did not enjoy. Bale never liked playing as a winger, but it was his good performance in that position (five goals in 45 games) that led him to Tottenham in 2007 for 10 million euros.center_img That season ended with 11 goals and 11 assists, in 2011-12 he went up to 13 goals and 17 goal passes and in 2012-13, with Villas-Boas on the bench, he broke all his marks: 26 goals and 15 assists in 44 games. Before starting that season, Bale entered the Portuguese coach’s office and asked him to play as playmaker. Villas-Boas folded down and the player responded with an extraordinary year. He became the great star of the Premier, he won every award that was placed within his reach in the Islands, he acquired a huge media impact and That caught the attention of Florentino Pérez, who saw in him a potential substitute for Cristiano and winner of the Ballon d’Or.From Times Square to the BernabéuAt the end of that season, and after some very tough negotiations with Daniel Levy, owner of Tottenham, Florentino paid 101 million euros for Bale, making him at that time the most expensive signing in history. But in Madrid there was no discussion. The left was for Cristiano. So Ancelotti, a white coach, made room for him on the right, displacing Di María to the center. There he formed the BBC, the famous trident with Cristiano and Benzema, known for his deployment in attack as for his reluctance to help behind. In Madrid the Welshman has been losing gas. He has left images for the history of the club, such as that prodigious career with Bartra who gave a Copa del Rey, his goal in the final of the Tenth or a double (Chilean included) that made the white club conquer the Thirteenth, but injuries and trouble has made him go from galactic signing to suspect.His name is on the exit ramp, but Bale doesn’t want to leave. He is already 30 years old and has two contracts left. Few clubs in the world can offer him what Madrid gives him: 14.5 million a year, the possibility of winning titles (in white he has won four Champions, four Club World Cups, three European Super Cups, one League, one Cup and two Spanish Super Cups) and universal media impact. A scenario that perhaps would not have been possible without that movement that Redknapp dared to make a decade ago.last_img read more
