Valencia asks about Siovas

first_imgSiovas, an indisputable despite the injuriesThe Greek central has been essential in recent years in Leganés and responds to veteran and tanned soccer player profile in a thousand battles. Valencia needs an immediate adaptation and the Hellenic does not seem to have difficulties to achieve it. At 31 years of age, only injuries have prevented him from devoting himself as a security backlog in Butarque. Similarly, this season has been about two months off due to problems in the left knee, but Aguirre has him in the goal of seeking permanence. Therefore, the response of the Lega is the payment of the clause. There is no other possibility.EMILIO COBOS & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Siovas, in the match against Valencia last season.EMILIO COBOS (DAILY AS) Diakhaby-Mangala-Paulista, an insufficient trioGaray and Paulista formed, until the injury of the Argentine, one of the most reliable couples of the national league league. At the same time, Mangala and Diakhaby have not seized the opportunities and leave doubts in the technical staff of Celades. At least, it doesn’t seem like the trio is enough to face the decisive months of the season. Nor does the Brazilian penalty for the knockout stages of the Champions League in front of Atalanta. There they will inevitably play Mangala and Diakhaby, but the slightest physical problem of these would leave behind in the box for which it is considered one of the most important games so far this season. Therefore, and seen what has been seen, in Paterna they work conscientiously to close a central that complements them. Siovas is one of the possibilities, although more options have been considered Roncaglia, Calero or Sidnei. The decision is expected to be finalized this week. Since Garay’s injury, it has been stipulated in Valencia with the possibility of signing a central. While there didn’t seem to be any affordable operation, the debacle in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez reopened the debate. In fact, Diakhaby was one of the main points of the defeat, especially for staying still after a struggle with Ángel Rodríguez that resulted in the third goal of Getafe. The center claimed foul and did not continue the play even though the referee did not point it out.center_img Valencia has been put to work in search of a central to help replace the transcendental low Ezequiel Garay. To do this, you need first the approval of the championship and could only make the signing within Spanish football. Under these circumstances, the Valencian entity has contacted Leganés by Dimitrios Siovas. As AS has learned, there was a clear answer: there will be no negotiation.The Leganes, who already suffered the important march of En Nesyri, does not want to part with another player and refers Valencia to the termination clause. This is a figure close to 11.5 million euros, although 15% would be for Olympiacos, due to the negotiation that they maintained in their day for the transfer of the power station. So, the club in the south of Madrid would receive some € 10M if the operation comes to fruition.last_img read more

Madrid plans to pay the Lautaro clause, according to TyC

first_imgReal Madrid is willing to pay the termination clause of Lautaro Martínez, as reported by journalist Esteban Edul on TyC Sports. As reported by AS, the Argentine soccer player could leave Inter Milan for 111 million euros in one of the fortnight of July.

His 22 years, another guarantee to undertake his hiring.Always according to TyC information, Madrid would have put on the table Lautaro a succulent contract of 14 million euros per season To try to convince him. However, it will have more offers and will be your decision. In any case, Everything indicates that it will be the most expensive transfer in the history of Argentina. Although this season has definitely been enshrined as a world star, Florentino Pérez’s interest in the figure of the forward comes from time back. Specifically, it was recognized by the player himself in 2018. At that time he played in Racing, his last club before his signing for Inter in summer 2018 for 25 million euros. Lautaro revealed in TyC that Madrid was one of the clubs that had asked about him: “I read some things and my representative told me that he wanted to talk to me. Many offers appeared in the previous clause and my decision was to stay. My idea was always to stay in this club. I can’t afford anything other than doing my best for Racing. ” Months after those words, he headed for European football aware that his performance was up to the best.Barcelona, ​​another candidate The relationship of Lautaro and Messi, companions in the Argentine national team, can be one of the keys that leads you to opt for one side or another. Beyond that, Barcelona also meditates paying the termination clause to avoid having to negotiate the necessary purchase of a reference point. AS confirmed the information of Il Corriere dello Sport, which speaks of a price of 111 million euros, as long as it is paid during a fortnight of July. Away from those dates, TyC suggests that the amount required would be higher.LLUIS GENE & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Lautaro celebrates his goal against Barcelona in the Champions League.LLUIS GENE (AFP) It has even sounded for the winter market, but finally the negotiations have been postponed until summer. But everything points to the fact that on the way of Real Madrid towards closing the recruitment of Lautaro, Barcelona will be its main rival. As reported by AS, the Argentine is the favorite of the board of directors and the technical secretariat for relieve Luis Suarez as a reference nine in the Camp Nou. Even more after his great individual performance in the Champions duel with Inter. From sources close to Lautaro Martínez, they tell AS that Barcelona is the club most interested in the Argentine striker of Inter. Those same sources do not pronounce on whether it will renew or with the Nerazzurri.Mbappé, on the horizonThe real Madrid, even with Lautaro on his list of star reinforcements for next summer, keep dreaming with the figure called to dominate world football this decade. Kylian Mbappé is the great one, but not for 2020, but for 2021. AS informs today of the plan of the Madrid entity towards the promising French. This one ends contract in the year 2022 and the white directive is aware that the Sheikh of Paris Saint Germain will not let you out at any price. Therefore, he suggests convincing him not to close his renovation and will go on the attack when he only has one year left on his contract and PSG is seen in the position to sell it or let it go at zero cost.“Madrid will not be so easy to get Mbappé from the PSG. They don’t want to let it go before the Qatar World Cup 2022 dispute. It’s a strategic issue.“a source close to AS points out to its situation in France. That is why the PSG will go on the attack sooner rather than later and will launch an irreproachable offer, which will make you one of the highest paid players in the entire continent in case you decide to accept it. This offer will arrive before the next Eurocup and will put you in a complicated position: tie your future in Paris or open the door to a change of air at the end of your bond. Who knows whether or not your decision can affect what the 2020 galactic would be: Lautaro Martínez.last_img read more

Calleja: “I expect an Atleti with a lot of energy, the one that sometimes seems to play with twelve”

first_imgGreat streak of results of your team: “We came from a great run, since the game with Valencia we already gave it a spin, but it is true that with Atlético we already made a very serious game, and we already did things well. It was a matched match, a match in which anybody could win, but we already gave a very good level. From there we no longer grow, and as a result of that match we have already made very good matches and we achieved good results. We are going to Wanda to win, since we have not done so never. It is a field in which we have competed, so we want to continue like this, but this time winning. “It is a beautiful challenge: “We face the game with a lot of motivation, it is a challenge and the truth is that we want to continue with our good streak and keep it in a field like that, keep it with a rival of so much level. We aspire to be among the best, we go game by game, but this would be a great victory. “Champions numbers: “We do not make numbers, since it is difficult to know how things will be at the end. The key is to reach the end involved in this fight, with options to reach those places and, from there, we will see. We only focus on the match next, and in the end we’ll see if we have options. “Expect an Athletic with a lot of energy: “I do not expect an Atlético to be locked up, I wait for them with a lot of energy and with everything they have in the field, which sometimes seems to play with twelve. They will go to the opposite field, they will press very hard and they will seek to take advantage of our mistakes. We know that they are lethal and they take advantage of any mistake we have. I do not see them behind, it is a brave team and in their field they will go all out. “What Villarreal expects: “I want us to have personality and not lose our identity. I want a team that has the ball, since that is the best way to defend that we have. We have to face the game from possession, we must have the ball and long possessions, since then we are better. “Win in the Wanda: “The Wanda is a very complicated game, a game that if lost would not mean a stumble, since it would be much ahead. Winning a large team and in that field would be a psychic blow and an important step, but not definitive.”Champions options: “Being in the Champions League is very complicated, you have to be very strong, you have to be very regular, you must be lucky and the rivals are not at their best. It is very difficult to reach those places, but it is a challenge that excites us and a challenge we face and we want to achieve. “ Javier Calleja, Villarreal coach, faces the match with Atlético with “much hope to do something big in a field like Wanda”, and against a “great team like Atlético de Madrid”. A rival who expects “very motivated and euphoric after what they achieved this week”, that energy that ensures “makes it seem that they play with twelve in the field.” He praises those of Cholo Simeone for “his defensive strength, his work as a team and his strength,” but he says they go to the game “convinced that he can win.”Recover injured: “We are almost all, Bruno and Ramiro Guerra would be missing, but we have already recovered those who were touched and who can count on everyone is a great joy.”Alberto Moreno: “Alberto can be one hundred percent, since he has worked very well throughout the week. We were in doubt to see his evolution throughout the week, and it has been good, so if you have to play he will do it at a good level and to which we are accustomed. “They arrive euphoric: “After the victory of the other day against the most fit team in Europe and the one who is best playing, with what it means to win this match and how they did it, it is clear that it is a great mood blow for them and it is a sure plus It was a complicated game and they knew how to play it very well. They demonstrated what they are capable of and therefore I imagine they arrive with the utmost confidence. “Very strong in defense: “The other day they demonstrated all their qualities. It is a team that is very well worked, that in block they do an extraordinary defensive work; a very difficult defensive work. It is a team that is very difficult to score goals, a team that defends with a lot of authority and who has great players for it, which adds that in attack they always have moments and sparks that allow them to be very close to the goal.The individual quality and the ability to generate attack game makes them very dangerous. It is a team that knows how to handle the very tight result and not get nervous, since they know they always have options to win and unbalance the games.last_img read more

That is to say, in this 2020 the players should have been born from the year 1997. The question was whether this postponement of the Games would also imply an increase of one year in age. Well, FIFA has solved it this Friday. The world’s top soccer body, in a statement, has confirmed that the men’s teams at the 2020-21 Tokyo Olympics will be U-24 (plus the three ‘veterans’ allowed). Thus, in Spain those who qualified for the National Team will be able to play in Tokyo 2021.FIFA thus hears the voices that many federations raised when the Games were postponed.

Koke: “That they create your name is of the best satisfaction”

first_img“I have many specials, although I keep Miranda’s in the Cup final because it meant being champions and also Gabi’s in Lyon, because it was his last goal with Atlético, “replied the Atlético captain.They also asked him if he felt anything special when the rojiblancos fans chanted his name.

Paco: “With € 19M in surplus you have to have eggs and ensure the salary of employees”

first_imgPRE-SEASON No one guarantees zero risk. “See if in two or three weeks the situation is fairly controlled. But if something happens during the process, what do we do? Do we look the other way and move on? We send the plagued home. What if the rest have it? What if we infect others? “, He wielded, also ruling on the tests:”You have to have sensitivity because many people have died without being able to access one. He is dead. And now we are going to do the players every two or three days. If there is a test for everyone, great. As this is not the case, they should be kept for those who need it most. If later they are left over, ok. Fali has already said that he will not play and does not expose himself. I respect it and it seems perfect to me. You don’t risk your little finger. If the virus catches you something regular, you go ahead. You have to respect who wants to take that risk and who doesn’t. “ “We are going to test the players every two or three days. If there is something for everyone, great. As this is not the case, they should be kept for those who need them” On the other hand, Paco Jémez already knows what it is to play without an audience. He did it in Mexico, when they closed the Veracruz field. “You can’t imagine the feeling of loneliness. Soccer without people is not soccer, it is a different thing. If it lasts for months it is a serious problem. And we will have to adapt, although this is for the public, “he admitted, aware that this situation could even change the format of the competition:” If exceptionally it has to be done, it will be done. Many players will have passed COVID-19 and they won’t know it. When Health tells us we can shoot, we will shoot. The problem is that I of Health have not heard anyone put a date but from other classes. LaLiga, the Federation, UEFA … are anticipated. But what authority do you have over Health? So I understand that the CSD is ahead. We are not different from others. Neither better nor worse than anyone. The thing is, the situation is under control. “The contracts and June 30 is another open debate: “It worries, but it has to be regulated. I ended my contract on 30-J. I can afford to continue until this ends. If the Federation, LaLiga … regulates it, better. You have to find a solution for everyone. ” And if that worries, even more the salary drops and the ERTE. “Each club is particular and must manage depending on how it is. Barça is not the same as Rayo. Having said that. Whatever the agreement between the club and the players or if there is finally an ERTE, I am concerned that the contracts of the employees are not 100% guaranteed. It is a matter of dignity. First because it must and second because it can. Anything other than achieving that will be a failure and we will be reproaching ourselves for a long time. In general, footballers have a predisposition, another thing is that they want to take off as much as the clubs request. Each one is a world, “concluded Paco, who added:” Legally, they have the right to go to an ERTE, but morally not. A team that presents a budget with 19 million surplus and that this year has transferred players for 21 million euros has to have two eggs and go out to secure the wages of its workers. I’m not talking about Barça or Atlético. I talk about Lightning, that’s why I give those numbers. And I know that there is a good predisposition on the part of managers to reach an agreement, but I am afraid that it will not be reached. “ We will need a minimum of three weeks of training. If you want a single against married we play already, people will stop to vomit in the middle of the game … “center_img When football returns, all teams will start from scratch and inertias until before the break will no longer be a reliable reference. “That will make LaLiga a crazy competition. The teams that make it physically well will have a lot of cattle. We have not considered that we need a psychologist. More than globally, in some particular case it can be worth it,” he argued before addressing the points that most concern the protocol for the return of the clubs: “You have to listen to the integral parts of this business. I have not been asked. Some epigraphs are very utopian. Imagine that we start, we live a normal life and one gives a positive. The rush can take us back everything that we have advanced these days. We can’t continue playing if you test positive because If I die, who is responsible? The author of the protocol? You have to outline it well“ LALIGA PROTOCOL Pacó Jémez, Rayo’s coach, reviewed the current affairs of football in times of the coronavirus during an interview in Stadium Study. There he advocated a three-week preseason before returning to activity. “People believe that we all live in a mansion with a 100 square meter garden. I want you to enter my apartment, because for you to enter I have to leave. There is no place to train here and, like me, there are many players. This break is worse than the summer break because there you go running, walking, playing tennis, a party with friends … We are going to need at least three weeks of group training to compete. If you want this to be single against married we start playing now, people will stop vomiting in the middle of the game… Keep in mind that we will play every 72 hours. We are going to get into the heat in July and August. It is not a matter of wanting more or less time, but the time necessary for this to work out. It is preferable to wait and finish than to want to go in a hurry and fall when climbing the first step, “he said forcefully.The future is uncertain and the coach does not want to venture beyond everyone’s desire. “We are exploring a path that no one has traveled. We want to finish LaLiga safely and not in any way. The rhythm is set by the virus and you have to hear it, it would be a mistake to believe that we are above this“, sentenced, showing more supporter of playing than of giving the championship for ditching:” I would not like it, it is the last scenario that we want. Hopefully we don’t have to cancel the season and, if that happens in the end, we would have to admit it“The voices of some footballers who have feared for their health and refuse to compete if this involves any risk have already begun to be heard. Something that Paco understands:” If the authorities are not able to assure us that there will be no problem, anyone is in your right to do so. “last_img read more

Fitter, Stronger Collins defies time

first_imgBeing fitter, stronger and having his wife as coach have been key factors to why Kim Collins continues to defy time and run faster even as he gets older.Collins, who turns 40 in April, opened his season at the Central Hurdles and Relays meet at G.C. Foster College on Saturday, winning the 60-metre dash in 6.53 seconds.Iran’s Reza Ghasemi’s 6.52s leads the world so far this season and Collins’ time was run outdoors, so it won’t be ratified, but one gets the feeling it won’t be long before the 39-year-old Kittitian grabs pole position once again like he did in 2015.Last season, Collins ran nine races unbeaten over 60m indoors and had the top-four fastest times in the world.The closest sprinter to his world-leading 6.47 was 26-year-old Ryan Bailey of the USA, who ran 6.50s in Seattle on February 14. Ironically, on that same day Collins ran that same time in Berlin, tying the American for the fifth fastest time of the year.Collin’s speed has not been confined to the indoor circuit as, in 2014, he ran the 100 metres in a personal best 9.96 seconds, almost one-tenth of a second faster than the 10.07s he ran to win the men’s 100m final at the World Championships in Paris in 2003.The Jamaican-based athlete explained that it is his approach to training that has allowed him to defy the odds and defy time.”Most athletes go in the opposite direction,” he revealed. “They come and they train hard, extremely hard every day and this goes on for months. In the end, their bodies will begin to break down. I come from the opposite direction. Whatever it is you’re trying to do, you must get fit first. So before I go to sprint, my body must be fit.”WEIGHT TRAININGHe also revealed that he is a lot stronger now than when he was world champion 13 years ago, having adopted weight training later on in his career, something he never did when he was younger.”I am way, way stronger now because back then I wasn’t doing weights, I wasn’t taking vitamins, nothing like that,” he said. “If I was doing what I am doing now back in 2003, I would have been a lot better. I would have been a lot faster and probably would have moved on a long time ago because I would have had such a great career.”He gives a lot of credit to his wife, Paula, who he said, helps him be honest about how his body feels.last_img read more

Green seeking positive end to tough year

first_imgBEIJING, China:Competing at his fifth World Championships, Jamaican 400m hurdler Leford Green is hoping to turn what has been a tough year on the personal and professional level into a positive closeGreen, a two-time World Championships finalist, returned to Jamaica to pair his Lennox Graham-led hurdling programme with the 400m expertise of Bertland Cameron, but it wasn’t always an easy transition.The hurdler had to make personal sacrifices and had to learn entirely new approaches but now looks back at his decision in a positive light, considering that the main objective, qualifying for the World Championships, had been met.However, the Olympic finalist is now looking to reap more successes. Though his 49.22 season’s best leaves him a full second behind the top contenders in his event, Green is confident his best performance is yet to come.”I’m pleased to have been selected to compete at another World Championships, I’m feeling good and I’m happy to be here to represent Jamaica and myself,” he said.Tough year”It’s really been a tough and trying year for me and I think I have been resilient in my efforts to keep it together. I also have a lot of people in my corner to help me stay focused and motivated so I am owe a lot to the folks who have been there for me supporting me. My family has always been there, good friends, Jason Morgan, Dane Hyatt, Jermaine Gonzales and even coaches like Bertland Cameron and Lennox Graham, who were always there. I think I have accomplished a lot just by being here at the World Championships, which is a goal of every athlete,” Green continued.Well aware of the deficit that he will need to erase if he is to make the final, moreso contend for a medal, Green remained unfazed, underlining his focus on executing his coach’s instructions, which he expects will bring positive results for him.”Anything can happen and I’m just here, really excited to see what’s going to happen tomorrow (today),” he said.”I’m just trying to focus on my execution because, as I have said, it’s been a tough year and I have been trying different stuff to see what works or what can get me into a better shape and state, so its all about execution and that’s my focus going into these championships and, hopefully, the time will come. I’m looking forward to it, hopefully the crowd in the Bird’s Nest can also bring me alive and I can get some success,” he added.The men’s 400m hurdles heats will get unde way at 6:10am today. He will be joined by fellow Jamaicans Annsert White, the national champion, and Roxroy Cato.- A.L.last_img read more
