Why do you decide to return to Barça this summer?It was the soap opera of a very busy summer. Returning to Barça was an option that I always had in my head, despite the good year I signed with Atleti.She is the Spanish player of the moment. Did you ever imagine that you would reach this level?I never imagined it. I’ve been to different places, where I learned and matured a lot. Everything made me reach what I am now, based on work.Do you regret going to Switzerland or France?Now I tell you that I do not regret it, although there were many moments in which I regretted some decision. The year in Paris was overcoming in every way. I had no illusion for football and thought about quitting. I met another Jenni.What differences are there between Barça that he left in 2017 and the one he found this summer?Everything has changed. The level is much higher. We have a more compensated team in all positions.What is the key to the success of this team?We are all very clear about what we can contribute and how we can help. Let’s go to one, play who plays.Is there a contrast of playing before 32,068 people to do it normally before a thousand?It changes a lot. In a full field, it seems that you are physically different. Playing in San Mamés is one of the most beautiful things I’ve experienced in football. His hobby deserves all the applause they give.

I always say that I am a player who has not been scoring goals. I like to play between the lines or give the pass. The goal scoring came to me at Barça, which put me forward and not false nine and had more chances to score. It was then that I stayed two seasons as a League pichichi. I still score goals, but I think I have more than a goal and I can give more to the team. I don’t want everything to be based on me scoring goals and work to make it happen.Do you have any mania before jumping into the field?I usually tie my boots two or three times before going out to the field. Until I see that my feet are squeezed equally I am not going quiet.How did football come to Jenni Hermoso?I always played in the park with my grandparents, to whom I always dedicated my goals because they continue to support me from above.

Now, I also like Messi a lot.And his dream as a footballer?The first thing is to win the League and then it would be a dream to be in the Champions League final.How do you see your future after football?I believe that all my future will have to do a lot with football.

In her boots there is a lot of goal or a lot of football, as she wishes it was for a long time.

“Players will have to sacrifice part of their chip”

first_img“If there are no competitions, the sponsor can argue that it does not have visibility, and it is understandable, because it will have all the right not to pay, just like the partner. If this lengthens, it is normal that there are a series of rethinks and the players would have to make an effort. At the moment, only one day has been suspended. Now the moment is serious, but not very serious. But if in two weeks we remain the same, which gives this impression, because this will not normalize until September, everyone he will have to sacrifice himself, “he argued.De Liébana defended the viability of the clubs and he pointed out: “What cannot be consented to is that the clubs are in the pillory as a consequence of this so extraordinary and unpredictable. If the players do not want to give up their money, the viability of most entities will be difficult. to see how the television rights clause works, among others. ” “For clubs that are modest, like Espanyol, which receives 50 million television from the 80’s of its budget, the entrance in a pothole is almost the destination at the moment. LaLiga has already put the loss at almost 700 million euros. Clubs like Barcelona and Madrid are going to be hooked on fear, because they have different routes of entry, such as television, Champions, sponsorships, etc., and with the tap turned off … “, he stressed.“The tap has run dry and the most important spending chapter, the chip payment, has not stopped. Here the following circumstance occurs: the clubs count each month with the money they deposit each month; television, both, sponsors, both; and box office, both. Therefore, there is going to be an imbalance of a magnitude that can be brutal, with each team on its scale, “he concluded. The economist José Gay de Liébana considers that if the coronavirus crisis persists, in the impact it has on sport, and specifically in LaLiga, the players “will have to sacrifice part of their signing to make the clubs viable, or else there will be serious problems in the entities.”In a telephone conversation with EFE, Gay de Liébana forcefully explained what he considers “a very critical moment” for the viability of the entities “if this unemployment persists”, which considers that if it lasts a few more weeks it should lead the federations to “neutralize the championships and start again from scratch from next season to avoid sports injustices “De Liébana is one of the most visible sports economists on the Spanish scene, and he usually presents and compares the numbers of the major soccer leagues in Europe at his conferences, almost always sending an alert message because many of the entities “live beyond their means”, and openly pointing out what he sees as a new “soccer bubble”.With the unexpected situation that has invaded the daily lives of millions of citizens around the world, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, De Liébana considers that this is a time when the economic fragility of sports institutions could lead to more than one to go through a trance between survival and disappearance. Given this unexpected moment, De Liébana has demanded that the representatives of the players and the athletes themselves, as well as the AFE, understand that if the situation persists “The footballers should make a gesture with the entities and download the chips this season.”Gay de Liébana, who is in the process of treatment for a cancer that he himself announced a few months ago, which makes him a very vulnerable factor at the moment, assured that everyone “has to resist the moment, but some owe more than others”. “The players would have to give up in good part of their record, because as long as there are no competitions, the clubs will stop entering. I don’t know what will happen to the season, but I think a gesture that would honor them would be to stop entering part of their chips. The clubs are going to have to take action because the most important sources of their income are not going to come to them: television rights, marketing and box office, “he explained.last_img read more

first_imgThe ‘machine’ selects finally about 30 elected in each position, ideals for the game concept that exists at that time or is going to exist and also fulfilling the coach’s demand, in this case Julen Lopetegui. In a mea culpa as few assume in football, Monchi acknowledges the error of not having guessed what the coach asked for … As happened with Marcelino García Toral in 2012: “I feel largely guilty that Marcelino It won’t end up working in Sevilla. I did not know how to make a template with the necessary profiles for your game model “. With the new algorithm, create the gaditano, this will be much more difficult to happen.“Before, it was almost all by intuition. Now the data allows us to be sure in some aspects. But it is impossible to replace the human eye. It is clear that before signing a footballer for many millions, you have to see him many times on the pitch, and also to know other aspects of how the person is. Because the players are not Swiss watches, “says Monchi. The player from Cádiz talks about the footballer’s personal life. Diego Carlos, a calm and familiar center-back off the field, is a physical beast on the pitch. It cost 15 million and there are already teams that offer between three and four times more. In that case this Monchi 2.0 has not changed, Already in his first stage as sports director of Sevilla he managed to raise more than 200 million in capital gains.

Madrid against Chelsea in the European Cup, never, never, never …

first_imgLiverpool have been the different nice opponent of the Whites in Europe. They’ve performed two finals, the 1981 European Cup in Paris (1-Zero for the Reds) and the 2018 one in Kiev, with Zidane’s 3-1 triumph (Bale’s double and a purpose by Benzema). Additionally they crossed paths in two heats. In the 2008-09 season, he defeated in the first leg at the Bernabéu in the spherical of 16 (0-1) and debacle in Anfield on the return leg (4-0). In the 2013-14 educational yr, destiny united them in the group stage. Ancelotti’s males shone at Anfield (0-3) with an ideal Cristiano, and so they additionally gained at the Bernabéu (1-0).The third commonest English rival is the different Manchester workforce, Metropolis. On three events they crossed paths. The primary in the 2012-13 season in the group stage, with a victory remembered at the Bernabéu (Mourinho’s celebration was sounded with each knees caught in the grass) after a comeback in the final minutes (he gained 3-2 with a purpose Cristiano) and tied at Ettihad Metropolis (1-1). Three seasons later, the faces met once more, with Zidane on the white bench and Pellegrini on the citizen bench. It was in the semifinals. 0-0 in the first leg of Ettihad and 1-0 in the return of the Bernabéu (Bale). Then he would win the Champions League in Milan against Atlético de Madrid.With Leeds United there was a cross in the 2000-01 season, with Figo already signed. They crossed in the group of the second group. White triumph 0-2 at Leeds and one other success at the Bernabéu, though struggling (3-2), with a well-known purpose by Raúl with the hand just like Maradona’s to England in Mexico 86. In the following course,Actual Madrid and Leeds confronted one another in 2000-01. The journey with the English rivals ends with Tottenham, with which it has been measured in two seasons: 2010-11 and 2017-18. In the first case, Mourinho’s Madrid went like a airplane and went over the Spurs (4-Zero at the Bernabéu and 0-1 in London). The rematch was taken by these of Pochettino in the group stage of the 2017-18 season, profitable in London with an ideal match (3-1). At the Bernabéu, these of Zidane didn’t move the draw (1-1) … however then they ended up profitable the Tredécima defeating one other English participant in the ultimate: Liverpool. However with Chelsea, there is no such thing as a precedent in the European Cup. Never, never, never. Nonetheless, with different English golf equipment it has been extra frequent to see Madrid gamble its status and its future in the most continental competitors. Particularly, it has held a complete of 18 heats, or what’s the similar, 36 video games. No doubt, Madrid’s nice English rival in the European Cup is Manchester United. And, moreover, it was the first. In 1957 they crossed paths in a qualifying spherical in the semifinals. The Di Stéfano, Gento and firm gained 3-1 at the Bernabéu and at Previous Trafford they equaled two. Madrid then gained the title in the ultimate against Fiorentina (2-0). His second crossing with the crimson devils was in 1968. Additionally in the semifinals. At Previous Trafford, slight benefit for the English (1-0). And on the return leg at the Bernabéu, United handed after drawing (3-3) in a recreation that ended up dropping 3-1. Then they’d be champions by thrashing Benfica in the ultimate (4-1). The third crossing takes us again to the yr 2000, from the Eighth of Madrid with Del Bosque on the bench. They have been measured in the quarterfinals. 0-Zero at the Bernabéu and 2-Three at Previous Trafford with the double by Raúl and the magical heel transfer by Fernando Redondo. Three years later the faces met once more, this time in the quarterfinals. Whites win in the first leg of the Bernabéu (3-1) and nice match at Previous Trafford (4-3) with an imperial hat-trick by Ronald Nazario. The fifth and final time the faces have been seen was in the knockout levels of the 2012-13 Champions League. The primary leg, common (1-1 at the Bernabéu). However the return at Previous Trafford was a beautiful victory (1-1) with two objectives from Modric and Cristiano.Actual Madrid and United met in 2000. My good friend Pepe, from Vélez-Málaga, a superb Madrid participant and a voracious soccer fanatic, threw my reminiscence to see if he was in a position to uncover a single duel between Madrid and Chelsea in the European Cup (because it was known as till 1992) or Champions League (because it has been known as since the 1992-93 season). I shortly remembered that ultimate in Athens in 1971, which required a tiebreaker with the first being 1-1 (with an agonizing purpose by Ignacio Zoco close to the ultimate whistle). Two days later, in the replay, the Whites misplaced the title (2-1, with objectives from Webb, Osgood and Fleitas) and Paco Gento mentioned goodbye to soccer, leaving an imperial resume regardless of that defeat. In any case, that was the Recopa, the solely continental competitors that the indeniable King of Europe resisted. There was just one different direct match with Chelsea, and it was the 1998 European Tremendous Cup performed in Monaco. Madrid agreed as the new European champion (the Seventh gained in Amsterdam to Juventus de Zidane) and Chelsea for conquering the Recopa by defeating Stuttgart in the ultimate play in Stockholm (1-0, Zola). The Monaco match was very troublesome and at last the Londoners gained with a final purpose from the Uruguayan Gustavo Poyet (1-0), an outdated acquaintance of the Spanish followers (he performed efficiently for Zaragoza from 1990 to 1997). And till right this moment. These three duels, two in the Recopa ultimate and one in the European Tremendous Cup, have been the solely continental clashes between Chelsea and Actual Madrid. Neither in the defunct European Cup nor in the Champions League have the faces been seen. Never, never, never. And that has been 65 years since the first version of the European Cup started, gained by Madrid at the Stade de Reims in Paris (4-3).Chelsea have a good time the European Tremendous Cup that beat Actual Madrid. 2613674. 535 In 1975 there was an enormous knockout spherical knockout match against Derby County. Unappealable defeat in the first leg 4-1 and the first of Madrid’s nice European comebacks on the return leg earlier than 120,000 followers. 4-1 in regulation time and Santillana’s purpose in additional time that eradicated the English.There was worse luck in 2006 against Arsenal, in the solely European confrontation with the Gunners. López Caro was the coach and the unhealthy ambiance of the workforce helped the Londoners. 0-1 in the first leg of the Bernabéu, with an ideal purpose from Henry. The return at Highbury was a need and to not have the ability and, regardless of a shot by Raúl to the publish, the preliminary 0-Zero didn’t transfer and Madrid was eradicated from the Champions League in the spherical of 16 …Actual Madrid’s steadiness against the English PerformedCattleTiedMisplacedObjectives forObjectives againstlast_img read more
