“We have to adapt to the technicians, get their ideas”

first_img-What happened?-It was a difficult game. In the first part we were not well at the level of depth and arrival. We improved, we knew how to correct some error tactically, and when we were better they made us 1-0. We tried to continue and had good occasions. But with 2-0 it was already impossible for us, -The lack of depth is repeated since Setién arrived.-In the first part maybe yes. In the second we went deep but we did not specify. You have to adapt the players to the coaching staff to get the idea. Despite the result there are good things but we have to improve.– Is Barça missing a nine?-We have players who can play nine. That is for the coach and the technical secretariat. Those of us who are the ones who have to move this forward.-What situation are they left in?–There are not many but despite the defeat we have done a second part with chances and control. But today they send the goals. There is much League left and we will fight. Sergio Busquets He showed his face at Movistar LaLiga after the game.

Ziyech does not arrive to play with Getafe and returns Promes

first_imgAjax plays a large part of its season against Getafe and for this match he will not be able to count on Ziyech, its star player. The Moroccan carries some discomfort in his left leg that caused him to be off the field for a month. He was tested against Vitesse (10 ‘) and Waalwijk (45’), and was able to play in the Coliseum “without any problem”, according to his coach. However, it seems that He fell in Madrid, could not play this past weekend and does not arrive in time for this second leg.“We don’t want to risk the whole season for a match, we are in a very important phase of the season”, explained Ten Hag at a press conference. It is a blow to Ajax that, as the coach himself recalled, keeps David Neres down. It was expected that the Brazilian could return after the winter break but the recovery process is not working as expected. Who is available again is Quincy Promes. The former Sevilla was injured at the beginning of December and, although he was able to return for a couple of games, he fell back just like Ziyech. Last week he started touching the ball and today has entered the call. He trained in the pre-match session with total normality and, with the casualties, he could start.In this way, Ten Hag, who recovers Onana after his suspension game but loses Tagliafico for the same reason, could line up an eleven similar to: Onana; Dest, E. Álvarez, Schuurs, Blind; L. Martínez, Eiting, Van de Beek; Promes, Babel and Tadic.last_img read more

Camavinga costs 50 million

first_imgHe is 17 years old and the last season, at 16, he became the first player born in 2002 in debut in one of the big five leagues from the old continent. Was against Monaco in May. Thereafter, Camavinga, of Angolan origin, has become indisputable starter with Rennes and in the great sensation of French football after the emergence of Mbappé. Zidane loves you if Madrid does not sign Pogba this summer. Is his bet for the future, as before was Varane (Madrid hired him at 18 from Lens).According has been able to know AS from nearby sources to own Camavinga, the Rennes has appraised at 50 million of euros. There is no release clause, so the club that loves you is forced to negotiate with the entity owned by magnate François-Henri Pinault, owner of the Artemis Group, specialized in luxury items. Camavinga is the player with the highest market value of those born in 2002, according to Transfermark, ahead of Ansu Fati and Reinier. The Madrid website, Camavinga, claims a specialized value of 37.5 million euros, the 36-year-old from Barcelona and Reinier, recently signed by Madrid, 22.5. The white entity paid 30 for it to Flamengo. These themselves sources acknowledge that Madrid’s interest has come after that of other teams they already have more advanced contacts with the Rennes, mainly the almighty PSG and Juventus. And they even point to the “interest of another Spanish team”. The Borussia, who also asked about him, has withdrawn from the bid when he saw that the price was skyrocketing. Camavinga is represented by Moussa Sissoko, one of the most influential agents in the French market that carries, among others, to players like the Barcelona player Dembelé or Kanté, the latter, now at Chelsea, also in Madrid’s orbit.Meteoric rise.The truth is that Camavinga just started rolling. A few months ago I was playing in the Youth League. The Rennes recruited himwhenor was six years old, from one of its satellite teams, the AGL-Drapeau Fougeres. Until their historic debut, his trajectory has been meteoric. And his agent wanted me to just sign his first contract professional until 2022 (charges, as they point out in France, two million gross a year), with the idea of ​​being able go out to a big team as soon as possible. Moussa Sissoko knows Rennes well. It is their main fishing ground. Thence Dembelé also came out.center_img The Madrid stay tuned the evolution of the player, knowing that a conversation from Zidane with the footballer’s environment would suffice for Camavinga to give priority to Madrid. But there have been no official contacts with Rennes yet. The uncertainty provoked for the crisis has all operations stopped, including Pogba, Zidane’s great longing. If United’s didn’t come, the signing of Camavinga is considered feasible and appropriate: complies with the new Madrid policy, signing young talent at a reasonable price to find future stars … And Camavinga aspires to be the new Pogba (which United valued at 180 million euros last summer). Camavinga have options playing at the Bernabéu.last_img read more

A boat soon, Seirul·lo, a medical eminence in Can Barça, is against the FIFA proposal to make five changes per game. His reasoning is that simple. “The more players participate, the more the injury options increase. I would not touch anything,” explained Ràdio’s Tot Costa de Catalunya program. Seirul·lo is clear on how he would propose the return to competition of professionals. No long sessions and taking it as a preseason to use. Quality training and not quantity. “The work should be specific, qualified, short, with breaks. It is better to do specific short workouts. If done this way, in three or four weeks the players could be playing.” In addition, Seirul·lo says that “veterans would admit this type of work well. Young people will have problems for that. Seirul·lo insists on discouraging” generic “training.” You have to take a state so that it is enough to hold the games left. If you do it that way, you can start competing in three to four weeks. “In fact, he believes that” if there are five weeks there can be confusion “because the physical trainers could design another type of season.last_img read more
