first_imgIn the end Pepe Reina will realize her wish to return to the Premier League: the goalkeeper is one step away from signing with the Aston Villa. His agent, Manuel García Quilón, in these hours reached the agreement for Milan to let him out, although he changed the formula of the operation. The rossoneri gave the ok, but only to a transfer with no purchase option: The ex-Neapolitan, then, will play as a starter in Birmingham until the end of this course as he wished, and then he could return to San Siro. The decision of the Milanese entity depended on doubts about the future of Gigio Donnarumma, which could change airs next summer. If the goodbye of the young keeper becomes a reality, Milan will want to have an alternative experience and ready for his goal already at home, and nothing better than Reina, who has a contract until 2021, already knows the club (which he attended in the summer 2018) and that it would come from another experience in England with the desire to continue being the owner. The officiality of the operation should arrive in the next few days.last_img read more

first_imgThe character, the fight and the faith in the triumph of a reborn Kirolbet Baskonia ended this Sunday with the Real Madrid streak at the Wizink Center, where he accumulated 17 straight wins in the League and did not lose since March 24, 2019 (94 -95).In a battle from beginning to end in which the bases Facundo Campazzo and Pierrie Henry staged a huge scoring duel, with 27 and 26 points, respectively, the Baskonist victory was decided by small details and not decided until the last seconds.The whites had a shot to win, but Sergio Llull, who also shone with 23 points, was not right from his field and his team ended up giving up his third loss of the week, although he fought until the last possession.With Campazzo as director of operations and all the equipment plugged in from the triple, it seemed that Real Madrid would suffer less than expected since, at the beginning, a rival who started with one less march was shown much superior in all facets of the game and I didn’t know how to stop the rush of the ACB leader.The Argentine base, with three of the six triples converted by the whites in the first ten minutes – in which he added thirteen points and 17 valuation -, became owner and lord of the clash, well seconded by his compatriot Gabriel Deck and Llull .Behind, Usman Garuba became the shadow of a then-off Tornike Shengelia, a reflection of the poor staging of the players trained by Dusko Ivanovic, who only added 14 valuation points for 42 of the Madrid players after a first quarter clear local color (32-18, min 10).The second act the script was very different. From the hand of a unleashed Henry, Kirolbet Baskonia was plugged into the game with a 0-13 partial set that got him into battle.The American base, author of 19 points in the first half, was the revulsive of a team that took the character that he lacked in the previous minutes. A basket under the ring of Shengelia culminated the comeback and gave theirs the first advantage of the afternoon after seventeen minutes of white domination (36-37). First defeat in the WiZink of Pablo Laso’s team 01/19/2020 – 20:45 Image: EFE The defense of Baskonia blinded all the attack routes to the players of a Pablo Laso who could not find solutions on the bench. The success of the beginning disappeared and, if in the first quarter they were able to score 32 points, in the second they stayed in six.With a partial for the visitors of 21-6 in those ten minutes, the match reached the intermediate with minimal baskonista advantage and everything to be decided in the second part (38-39, min 20).The fight gained in intensity after passing through changing rooms. Baskonia hit first with a 0-5 start but lost Henry to a muscle problem, although he was able to return to the track shortly after.The leaders of the League reacted immediately with two triples of Campazzo and a Llull that began to take center stage in attack.The exchange of blows from all positions and the fight for each ball maintained equality and emotion throughout the room although the Vitorians, with Shengelia increasing their performance and Fall doing a lot of damage under the hoop, won the points and were able to arrive ahead of the decisive ten minutes (60-63, min 30).Real Madrid put one more march into their game and decided to go for the win. Two triples from Campazzo and Thompkins were followed by two steals culminating in counterattack. Ivanovic had to stop the game to stop a white team that was more plugged into the final quarter.But he did not succeed and, after receiving the sixth triple of the Argentine base on the next play, he asked for another timeout when he was seven down after a partial against 17-7 (77-70, min 34).Campazzo was so grown up at that point that he even dared to plug the giant Fall (2.21) from his 181 centimeters high, although the referees ended up whistling for personal foul.A triple from the corner of Italian Polonara returned the advantage to Kirolbet four and a half minutes from the end. His team had resisted the white rebellion and was beginning to believe in surprising the leader on an impregnable court this season.When he was on the ropes, with six down two minutes from the end, Campazzo plugged his seventh triple. Llull, from the same distance, tied for 40 seconds, although a mate with a hand of Shengelia ended the illusions of a Real Madrid who had a shot to win, but Llull failed from his field the triple that would have given him the victory .– Data sheet: 94 – Real Madrid (32 + 6 + 22 + 34): Campazzo (27), Llull (23), Deck (13), Garuba (6) and Tavares (4) -initial team-, Causeur (10), Laprovittola ( -), Reyes (8), Thompkins (3) and Taylor (-).95 – Kirolbet Baskonia (18 + 21 + 24 + 32): Henry (26), Janning (9), Shields (9), Shengelia (16) and Eric (-) – titular quintet -, Fall (16), Staukas ( 7), Polonara (12).Referees: Antonio Conde, Sergio Manuel and Vicente Martínez Silla.

first_imgThiago Alcantara, Bayern Munich player, granted an interview to The Independent in which he reviewed his training at the academy of Barça and also, step by step, as is playing in the midfield of an elite team like the German. “My style is not only due to Barça. There are also things about the idea they have in Brazil about how to play pivot. Barça gives you the philosophy to understand your game. The rest, you learn by the way, “said the Spanish midfielder about his training in La Masía.He advocates as the control in his favorite way to win games and explains, point by point, how to play in the middle of the field. “In the center of the field you don’t have time to know who is on your team. First of all, you have to get an idea of ​​the game: where the spaces are and what players you have nearby. It’s a mix between the panoramic view and knowing your team, “he says.Instinct and how to pass Soccer and stylesThiago likes control. That the party does not go crazy and know how to position themselves to make their teammates better and thus explains where he fits. “For me, there are many styles. You don’t have to control the game, you have to control what you do. Actions that you have well trained and execute in the best possible way before the opponent. That is having control. If they are long balls, you have to control how you play them. You dominate through execution and make every play with the goal in mind. For me, that is control, that everything you train you can carry out “, sentence 6.Although for the fan they are the most fun games, for him, the crazy games are the worst to play and enjoy on the field. “In the qualifiers there should not be too many goals. Everything is decided in small details and awarding goals is dangerous. I don’t like crazy parties. I like pretty games where everything goes exactly according to plan. It can be a 2-1 or a 4-3, but with control. The moment everything gets out of control, you go into madness. Nothing under control. That’s when you only live the game with maximum effort but with minimal control “, adds in addition to praising Ajax last season. “This is how I would like to play,” he says.Concentration and pressureThe physicist, the talent but also the mentality is key to trinfar in the elite and Thiago points out the concentration as a key factor at the highest level. “All the coaches I’ve had here and at Barça ask for more intensity and concentration. The same to train than to play. With some trainers, the training was more lights but with Pep it was pure concentration, “he says.The media highlights his ambition for the Champions League and takes pressure off. “We go season by season. The Champions League is my goal. I don’t feel pressure. It’s football If you told me that I have to operate someone … that’s pressure. But not play football. “ The midfielder position is very special for Thiago and, above all, instinctive. “You acquire instinct when playing midfielder and you know where to pass the ball. After years of experience, it comes naturally. You have to understand who you give the ball to, if it is right-handed, left-handed and how it will move. If the defense is high and you want to open the game you have to play fast. You have to read the player and the play. I think that for each team to understand the intensity of the pass is essential. In addition to each pass is specific to the game and the play, “said the midfielder.About the recipients of their passes, it is clear, the style matters more than the name. “You don’t think of names. You think what kind of player he is. You interpret it as if it were chess: where he moves and you have to know where to move, “he says.last_img read more

first_imgAs paradoxical as Barça’s fastest player this 2019-20 seems, is Carles Pérez. The current footballer of Roma registered 34.67 km / h and leads the culé club’s table of sprinters. But they follow closely: Braithwaite 34.6 km / h, Dembelé 34.6 km / h, Semedo 34.5 km / h and Piqué 34.1 km / h. The case of the Danish striker is curious, but he achieved this mark when he played for Leganés and had more space behind him.The milestone of Carles Pérez would have been a trend in the previous campaign since he would have surpassed Christopher Ramos (the fastest in 2018-19) with 33.7 km / h. Instead, Fede Valverde (35.1), Pedrosa (35.1), Óscar (35), Hernani (35) and Alex Moreno Braithwaite, Canales, Ferran and Llorente are now behind with 34.9.

His goodbye was a jug of cold water for the youth squad. “If I decided on Roma it is because I want to grow here, to be important for Roma. Barcelona is my past and Rome is my present. I signed four and a half years and my idea is to stay”, the player himself recognized the day of your presentation.The truth is that his baggage in the first team was at least positive: 11 games with 2 goals and two assists. High figures for a youth squad who was facing his first campaign with ‘the older ones’. In Italy he already enjoys his new challenge (where he scored in the Europa League), but having left a current record at the club that saw him grow.last_img read more
