Central alarm: Piqué and Umtiti, between cottons

first_imgMore worrying is Samuel Umtiti. The French central is not well physically. Before Betis he was slow and seized in many of his interventions, showing an insecurity and improper fragility of a player of his level. It is clearly showing that his decision not to have his right knee operated after the 2018 World Cup was a big mistake, as he continues to give him a thousand and one problems. This Monday without going any further, the requirement of the match against Betis, forced him to stay in the locker room to perform a knee treatment, which ended up quite swollen.Thus, Setién will be forced to resort to the subsidiary to cover the payroll of plants. The Uruguayan Rolando Araújo will be the chosen one. The center, which in recent days is training with the first team, has extraordinary conditions, but it seems that they have not quite convinced the Cantabrian coach. Only then can it be understood that before Betis, and after the expulsion of Lenglet, he would prefer to put Sergio Busquets as central than before giving entry to Araújo, despite still having the possibility of a change. Finally, Setién made the change effective, but it was Rakitic who took the field for Griezmann. Quique Setién is still accumulating problems because of such a short staff, with only 16 troops from the first team. Any setback, in the form of a sanction or injury, becomes a real headache. Looking ahead to LaLiga’s Saturday game against Getafe at Camp Nou, the Cantabrian coach will not be able to count on Clement Lenglet, after being sent off for double reprimand in the match of the last day against Betis (2-3) in Benito Villamarín.This absence leaves him with a bleak picture, having only two power stations available in the first team: Gerard Piqué and Samuel Umtiti. And we say available to say something because if they had to play a game this Wednesday they would arrive in certain very precarious conditions. To start, the Catalan central, which was low last day by penalty, is recovering from an overload in the abductor of the right leg, which forced him to be replaced last Thursday during the Cup quarterfinal match against Athletic ( 1-0) in San Mamés. In fact, this Monday the rest of his teammates were exercised separately, although they assure us that it is planned that Thursday complete the session with the group and that Saturday is already fully recovered.last_img read more

Green light in Poland: “The return of football is great news”

On May 28 the tests will be repeated – players, coaches and staff will be joined by the referees – and 24 hours later a competition will be resumed that has deadline July 19.A “rewarding” adventureIsrael Puerto, considered one of the best center-backs of his generation, shared costumes in the lower categories of the team with footballers such as Saúl Ñíguez, Suso, Jesé or Bernat and debuted with the Sevilla first team in 2013 by Unai Emery. Last season he performed at a great level at Recreativo de Huelva, but “the body asked me for a challenge like this.” In the summer he signed for the Slask Wroclaw, where he has managed to meet again at his best level: “Coming to Poland is, until today, the most important decision of my life. Not only at a soccer level, but also personally. It is very gratifying to find so many positive things in your first adventure outside of Spain. “The Slask, a team used to fighting to avoid relegation in recent seasons, is fourth and is just one point from second place. “The objective of this course was to get us into the top eight. The fans were not used to winning and seeing them happy to have their team up is very nice.” Personally, Israel Puerto is “super happy”. “The club values ​​me very much.

The government today gave the green light to the plan outlined by the league to resume the competition and, “unless unexpected adversities arise, the tournament will resume on May 29,” announced Marcin Animucki, president of Ekstraklasa. “We all thought that football would return. The budget of 95% of the teams depends on television income and, if the epidemic is controlled, it is great news that everything gradually returns to normal,” said the Slask Wroclaw center-back. Israel Port, one of the 20 Spanish soccer players who are active in the First Division of Poland.“We are aware that the virus is out there and has come to stay, but in Poland everything is more controlled.

Kroos looks out over the cliff

first_imgSince then Kroos walks on the wire. His statements contrary to the drop in wages that was planned for the white squad due to the coronavirus crisis (of 10% if, as it seems, the championship resumes), put him back on the run. “Lowering the salary is a lost fund or donation to the club,” he said, later clarifying that it was a failure in the translation of the interview. After his last renovation Kroos was sincere: “I am the first who has not played at his level. I have no problem saying it. I really want to be more consistent, like before, in the previous four years. In this I have played wrong, but I’m sure I’ll have three or four more years to go, “he said. Now, with the shadow of Pogba and Camavinga (and of Valverde himself) on the horizon of that football with more muscle and back and forth than Zidane prefers, Kroos is in a crucial moment of his career in Madrid. And more with the resumption of the season … He was very surprised that Zidane left him on the bench that time being the player with the most influence in the game of Madrid: he is the footballer who distributes the most passes, 2,439, ahead of Casemiro (2,224) and that has played 400 minutes less than the Brazilian. The answer may lie in the occasional lack of involvement in defense of Kroos himself. The German, so decisive in Madrid’s triumphs (four Champions in five years) It was very marked last season in which Madrid ran out of options to win any title in March. 64% of the fans asked not to continue in a macrosondeo elaborated by this newspaper at the end of the campaign. Its renewal was not understood. Perhaps he was weighed down by his failure on Ajax’s first goal in the disastrous 1-4 of the Champions League and his alarmingly low physical condition. At Real Madrid, the line that separates being idolized by the hobby of systematic booing is very thin. Tall soccer players know this well Velázquez, Zidane or Guti in the past or Benzema and Bale in a more recent time. Kroos (30 years old) is the next White House player to look out over that cliff. After his last and recent contract renewal (signed until 2023, he will end up 33 years old), the German has taken several false steps that placed him in the trigger just before the break due to the coronavirus health crisis.Something that has not yet transpired has happened between the German footballer and Zidane. It didn’t even help Kroos to be the most successful midfielder in the LaLiga pass (94%), and with a lot of difference in Madrid (Modric stays in 89%, Valverde in 88% and Casemiro in 83%) to play in the first leg of the second round against City. After the painful defeat (1-2) there was an image that hurt a lot in Real Madrid. That of Kroos himself and Guardiola whispering in the bowels of the Bernabéu. “When I didn’t see you at eleven I couldn’t believe it,” Guardiola seemed to say to the player, while the television cameras stole that intimate conversation between them. The Catalan was the coach of Bayern when he let him go to Madrid for 25 million euros, a historical error although, at least, Guardiola himself asked him to stay. But that image of the two talking may weigh on German in the future …DAILY AS & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>DAILY AS (DAILY AS)last_img read more
