Vaclik: “The infection in Spain grows incredibly fast”

first_imgFrom the confinement at his home in Seville, where he spends time with his family and with the training sessions that the Nervión club has prepared for him, the Czech Tomas Vaclik acts as an impromptu correspondent for the Czech Republic and recounts the difficult situation of the sport and life in general, which Spain lives because of the coronavirus. “In Spain, an emergency has been declared. People are only allowed to go to work and return home, or to go shopping and return. Many things are canceled and that is because it is the second country with the most cases in Europe, after Italy “, affirms the website of his country Isport.“Sevilla footballers were ordered to quarantine at home, but not because no one on the team is infected, but so that the virus does not spread further. They have given us training plans and it is important to stick to them, “says Vaclik.” No one knows how long the confinement will last. It is planned to meet again to train on March 23, but we will see if this happens, if the situation calms down or not, how it evolves. But I watch the news and the infection rate grows incredibly fast. “ LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of March 16, 2020 Vaclik believes that the positive in coronavirus of Madrid player Trey Thompkins was essential for everything to stop: “Soccer began to be affected last week, on Monday, when it was decided that it would be played behind closed doors. The same thing happened with the European match against Roma, but then, perhaps due to pressure from the players’ associations, it was decided to suspend everything. I think the case of Real Madrid, when a basketball player fell ill and the soccer team was quarantined, accelerated everything. “The goal is also committed to the suspension of the Euro Cup: “I am curious to see where that is going. UEFA will decide this Tuesday and I think postponing the tournament is the only correct decision. There are many trips for players and fans and I think that will play an important role in postponing the championship. Now it is necessary to resolve this extremely serious situation in the world and sports or soccer have to be in the background or in the background. “Vaclik says that his life has not changed much, except for training, “because we are usually at home. My wife is no longer pregnant, so we are not worried although these situations always worry the family. We try to have the least contact with the world outside and we usually spend free time in the garden. If we need something, we have it just across the road. But it is being harder for the boys who are from other places, because the club has prohibited them from traveling, so they have to stay here. “last_img read more

Juanpi Añor: “I would have no problem lowering my salary”

first_imgJuanpi Añor has an exorbitant file for the reality that is lived in the Second Division. His contract is around two million euros, a figure completely unattainable for the entity’s coffers. Next season the club will have to undertake a tremendous economic readjustment if it wants to be entered in the competition and Juanpi Añor does not fit in those parameters. The footballer says he is ready to reach out to the club and lower his profile in exchange for an extension of his contract, which expires in 2021. Still, the deal looks very complicated.“I said it earlier in the season. He would have no problem renewing, making a drop in salary for the benefit of the club. I have always been for the work. I am the first aware of the situation. We are going to wait for the League to finish and I will surely have conversations with the club to see where we can go. Obviously, you have to see how everything happens, how the League ends, what they offer, not only at an economic level but also at a sports levelWhat are you going to plan for next season… There are many things that I am not considering right now, this is not the time ”, he explained in the microphones of the TO BE.Juanpi also referred to his new role within the team after the change of coach. The red wine has once again been an important piece for Malaga. It has become indisputable since Sergio Pellicer assumed command on the bench. “His arrival gave me back the confidence, continuity and minutes that a player needs to regain his level. At the beginning of the season he also spoke about the benefit of the presence of the previous coaching staff (that of Víctor Sánchez del Amo), although it is true that I was losing it ”, he stated.These last seasons have not been good at all for Juanpi Añor, who explains his irregularity in this way: “Many of the problems I have had were in my head. In bad times, when I wasn’t used to going through those moments, they affected me. I worked on that and let’s say I’m a little more passive with myself now. I am not as critical as before. I was a long time and I am still working with a sports ‘coaching’, that of the Venezuela team. Your help made me realize many things and helped me overcome bad times. If I don’t give my level, I am aware that the eyes and the spotlights are going to be on me. It is very clear. And the hobby has manifested itself in the way it believes is correct. Before, I took it one way and now I take it another way. ” The playmaker does not hide that the locker room has received with relief the new reality that the club lives. The arrival of the judicial administrator in La Rosaleda has significantly reduced noise and completely normalized the day-to-day of the entity. “The latest news from the club just before the break was very positive. The arrival of Pellicer gave us the tranquility of not thinking about other things than football. Before there were meetings and talks in excess, something that was not the most correct and that we did not correspond to us. We could do absolutely nothing with what was happening with the club. Y Pellicer gave that peace of mind, also thanks to the judicial administration. Shaheen? I am not going to criticize any ex-worker of the club, but it is true that the club takes a long time that internally things were not being done in the best way. Now we are starting to see something different and positive for us players and for all fans of Malaga. I hope the best for the club, for the people and for us. Whoever is, do their best to benefit the club, the players and the people, ”he argued.Regarding the coronavirus crisis and the options to return to competition, Juanpi is clear: “I would not like to play behind closed doors, but I see it as very logical. The most sensible thing is to finish the leagues behind closed doors. We have to wait, see how long we are going to be like this and what the solutions of the League and the clubs are going to be. ”last_img read more

Lemar, a year to zero

first_imgLess than half the market valueSimeone has never thrown in the towel with Lemar and has continued to give him opportunities. The last, including him as a great surprise in the eleven to receive Liverpool after two months without being a starter. And against the English he was fine, serious in defense, concise with the ball and helping the best version of the Lodi course … until falling injured and having to be replaced at the break. On that February 18, his last minutes of the course arrived, although he overcame his physical problems to be at Anfield and see the victory and the classification to the quarters sending Vitolo to the stands. In the 1,035 minutes this course has been played by Lemar He has not provided any goals or assistance. Zero figures for a signing with so many expectations set upon arrival. Its market value has decreased for the specialized page Transfermarkt from the 70 million to which it rose in its incorporation to the 30 that fell in March. A collapse that makes it difficult for Atlético to recover the investment made to become one of the most promising players in Europe. JAVIER SORIANO & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Lemar controls the ball during the match against Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano.JAVIER SORIANO (AFP) Thomas Lemar has failed to take the step forward that was expected for the 2019-20 season. If your discreet first season at Atlético understood adaptation, so far this year, played until the braking of all competition caused by the coronavirus health crisis, it has not been for the better. What’s more, its performance has involved. So much so that in This April will be a year without goals or assists of the 24-year-old footballer. Since his arrival at the club in the summer of 2018 there is the feeling that Lemar’s confidence has been declining game after game and his red and white stage has fallen without brake. The Frenchman came to the team as the most expensive signing in his history (70 million, a figure that João Félix surpassed this summer with his € 127.2 M) after proclaiming himself World Cup champion and left a fantastic official debut with a great performance in the European Super Cup against Real Madrid. Hence, asking for the ball on each play, haggling, showing himself, breaking lines with his passes and hoping for the fans as the player who could reprise the role of Arda Turan as a pause, quality and tempo of the team from the band, it has become a shy and inconsequential footballer. Lemar closed the 2018-19 season with 43 games played, 31 of them starting, 2,613 minutes played (the seventh signing of the Cholo era that plays the most in his first year), three goals scored and six assists. His last goal was achieved on April 20 to give Atlético a victory in Ipurua against Eibar and his last goal pass on April 24, four days later, with a measured center for Griezmann’s header against Valencia. Two good consecutive games, with special brilliance against the Che team, which reactivated the illusions of seeing a good version of the Frenchman, since it left flashes of brutal quality. A quality that captured with a magnificent assistance to João Félix in preseason that served to defeat Juventus and that he gave hope to see the best Lemar in his second exercise, already without his supporter Griezmann in the squad. However, after starting the course as a starter in the midfield, forming an attack front with João Félix and Diego Costa and going on to participate in several games from the midfielder, he became less relevant until he was relegated to the bench with the explosion of Correa, who, leaving the bench, took advantage of every minute he stole from the Frenchman. center_img At 24, he still has a great future ahead, but his lineup is shining less and less. Atlético faces a summer without great movements in its squad, with the additions close to the income obtained from sales. And Lemar can be one of those players who provides an economic injection to reinforce the team. He has a name in the Premier League, with teams like Arsenal or Manchester United interested, But the figures that are handled are far from those 70 million paid.If everything runs smoothly, and the competition can be resumed to finish LaLiga and play the Champions League,Lemar will have a few months to claim and earn the option to follow or raise the interest of teams of the highest draft. With the postponement of the European Championship to 2021, the Frenchman has to increase his performance to keep going into Deschamps’ plans. At the moment Lemar is signing a season that in terms of sensations and statistics is far from expected.last_img read more

The children of Save The Children take Casemiro the football phrase more ball of his life

first_imgCasemiro wanted to collaborate with Save the Children, that since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis has adapted its programs to this exceptional situation and cares for 2,000 vulnerable families through its emergency intervention ‘A tu lado’, a social project focused on giving financial, educational and psychological support to households with children who are at risk of exclusion.The Real Madrid midfielder affirmed this Friday that at the moment he does not think of being first in the League because he is only focused on “fighting” to beat the coronavirus. The international media of the white group surprised through a video call to the children attended by “Save the Children” during the confinement and responded to the questions raised by them as a children’s press conference.“Do we want to win LaLiga? We certainly want to win LaLiga and we want to win the Champions League. But I am not thinking about winning LaLiga, I am thinking about winning the fight against the coronavirus. I believe that if everyone does their part, that is the most important thing “The Real Madrid player said when asked if he wants to win the title. “The first game is against the coronavirus. It is a delicate moment for everyone. The moment is to win the game against the coronavirus,” he said. For the player of the white team, society lives “difficult and complicated” moments and expressed sadness at the situation that many people live. “We have to do our part, stay at home.

I love playing sports. I always had an idol who is Zidane. And he is my Coach. I always loved him as a player. It was a pleasure to see him play. My great inspiration was him. “Finally, he explained that when he finishes a game and lies in bed, he is always “calm” because he has done everything possible to sign a good performance. “Many times it is lost or won. But I sleep peacefully because I have given my best. In other aspects of life, we must always do it, give our best,” he said.last_img read more

Van de Beek’s agent opens up options outside Madrid

first_imgSoccer agents look with concern at the short-term future as a period of austerity in the looms looms. That will be one of the main consequences that soccer will suffer due to the coronavirus pandemic. The break caused by the COVID-19 has closed the tap of income of the clubs, which are already juggling to balance the accounts: ERTES, reduction of salaries in the templates … Volker Struth, representative of Toni Kroos, warned that there will be fewer transfers, and less, next summer and in that line it has been shown also Guido Albers, agent for Van de Beek, one of the most sought-after players in the current market. Uncertainty marks his speech. “What’s going to happen to Donny? No one knows at this time. The interest of various clubs, which is known, has been there for a long time. We will see what will come out in the coming weeks. I don’t dare say anything about it, also because some things are confidential, although the coronavirus will have changed the situation of some clubs and we have to look closely at that ”, he stated at Voetbal International.Albers foresees a market with fewer player movements and less money, although he is confident that the new scenario may have positive consequences for his client. Related to Real Madrid since last season he shone in that Ajax that eliminated the whites from the Champions League, his name has passed to the caboose on the Bernabéu agenda. Therefore, this new situation of crisis in the market makes the Dutchman’s agent open up to other options outside the capital of Spain: “Everything will be different, but I also have to be realistic: it also creates opportunities in clubs that perhaps thought they no longer had a chance and are now knocking on the door. I’m not worried about Donny. “United keeps an eye on him … In this range of options for the future, Albers does not rule out that Van de Beek remains in Ajax, as happened last season, when all the pools were seen outside the Johan Cruyff Arena, as happened with De Ligt and De Jong, the other pillars of that set trained by Ten Hag: “’The positive for Donny is that he is still very good everywhere. For Donny, the most important thing is, and has always said, a choice based on his feelings. That which he believes is best for him and which he believes to be the most successful. He did it last year and will continue to do it this summer. Don’t forget that Ajax is still the club he came to when he was a young player. It is not a punishment to play for Ajax. It will also include that in your consideration… “Two weeks ago, the player returned to distance himself from the possibility of signing for Real Madrid, despite the fact that in the Dutch press the possibility is a recurring issue. “My feeling must be positive in a club. It is not just that they love me, I also have to fit in with the game system and, of course, I also want to know the minutes they are going to give me, “he said in Helden. Asked if Madrid would be that ideal destination, he commented: “Playing in the sun is always nice, but no, I haven’t started taking Spanish classes yet.”last_img read more
