Zidane visits Ronaldo where he did his best ‘no goal’

first_imgRonaldo, centenary in what is now his homeIt was the 100th goal of the Brazilian in LaLiga. The 101 would do it to complete the comeback. After Figo equalized from 11 meters, past the hour, Real Madrid looked hard for the culmination of the machada, which arrived exceeded 90 minutes. Guti saw Zidane released in the lane of ‘ten’ and the Frenchman touched her with the outside On the front, Ronaldo, who oriented the ball, waited for Julio César’s tarascada and, from there, from the crescent, shot at the bottom of the Bizzarri network. A popular song tells that the sacristan of Coimbra made a thousand mischief; dipped the bread in oil, left the saints in the dark. A thousand and one made Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo Nazário when they dressed together the shirt of Real Madrid, and the now refurbished José Zorrilla knows it well. The current white coach and the president of Real Valladolid meet again tomorrow in a place where almost 16 years ago they lived a night in which they had to show their entire repertoire, difficult, although happy. It was the night that the coach made the best ‘no goal’ of his entire career.It was a cold night, like any February one in which many knew as the ‘stage of pneumonia’. Oscar Gonzalez took advantage of a center of Losada from the right and a backlash to pierce twice the goal of Iker Casillas In the first half. And then, in the second, they appeared. A play basted by Zidane He finished with his own shot, which he riveted Ronaldo in the 48th minute, almost as if he didn’t want to, because he hit him on one of those knees that got so much can. However, that goal that allowed Real Madrid to take the lead could come earlier, in one of the best ‘no goals’ that José Zorrilla has seen as not so new since it was inaugurated in 82, next to that prodigious rabona of Capdevila against the Ejido Sports Center, in 2006. With the tie to two, in the 75 ‘, the midfielder previously known as Guti leaned on Ronaldo, who, in the area balcony, stepped on to the Zinedine Zidane boarding school, that before the appearance of Marcos left a delicatessen for the story: a beautiful roulette from which he left with Bizzarri on top, whose rush he couldn’t save. He did not need Zorrilla to surrender at his feet, as everyone stood up and broke into a standing ovation.center_img The two have changed a lot since then. Zidane became coach, won three Champions League in a row, left and returned to seek again the glory to which Ronaldo, now become president of Real Valladolid, wants to aspire, and what happens, first of all, to remain in First. Perhaps the League also passes through Zorrilla, although during the 90 minutes the wishes of the stars will not come together. Hugs and friendship will be for later.last_img read more

Agnelli enrages Atalanta: “I don’t know if I should be in the Champions League”

first_imgAgnelli, on the other hand, would consider it more appropriate to defend a team like Roma: “I think of the Giallorossi, who in recent years contributed to stopping the UEFA ranking of Italy and for a bad season they were left out, with all the economic consequences of the case. You have to protect the investments. “Some statements that obviously did not sit well with the fans of the ‘Dea’, who lives another great course and, after the 4-1 endorsed to Valencia in the first leg, is very close to the quarterfinals of Champions “You have to find a midpoint“Agnelli explained,”between the weight of the contribution to European football and that of a great performance in a single season“.

The president of Juventus, speaking this afternoon at the FT Business of Football Summit in London, He commented on the situation of the maximum continental competition, confirming his doubts and the idea to give more weight to the historical tour of the clubs, more than his great sports performances.The chief bianconero president said: “The opportunity to have automatic access to competitions should be discussed because you are part of a great country.

FIFA proposes to extend contracts beyond June 30 and players oppose

first_imgThe proposal was met, at the outset, with the frontal opposition of the Spanish footballers union: “On the extension of the contracts of the footballers ending on June 30, we regret that the RFEF intends to follow FIFA, and assume this position, that of extending them, because the labor rights of the workers would be violated ”. Implicitly, this AFE statement makes it clear that FIFA has no jurisdiction over labor relations between clubs and players.The deadlines to signFIFA also talks about an exceptional situation in the market windows: “It is necessary to adapt the normal regulatory situation to the current objective circumstances. For this reason, FIFA will be flexible and will allow transfer windows to be postponed to take place between the end of the current season and the start of the next. “FIFA recalls that its recommendations come after meetings of a working group chaired by FIFA Vice President and President of the FIFA Soccer Interest Group Commission, Vittorio Montagliani, which also includes representatives of clubs, players , leagues, national federations and confederations.“We hope that this joint project, led by FIFA, constitutes a positive example of football’s responsiveness, and demonstrates our union, solidarity and willingness to reach agreements that allow us to face the difficult times that are yet to come. Before that, if there is a question that everyone should be clear about, especially at this time, it is that health comes first, long before football, “said FIFA President Gianni Infantino.There is also a reference to employment regulation records. It urges clubs and employees to reach collective agreements and take advantage of government aid programs. FIFA will only accept unilateral decisions to modify contracts if they comply with national laws. In extreme cases, offers the Dispute Resolution Chamber or the Player Status Commission. FIFA confirmed in a statement that it recommends prolonging the contracts of footballers that end on June 30 until the end of competitions of this season, which is already assumed to occur after that date.“Contracts normally end at the end of the season and the season end date coincides with the expiration date of the contract. With the suspension of football activities in most countries, it is obvious that the current season will not end on schedule. Therefore, it is proposed that the contracts be extended until the time the season actually ends. This measure corresponds to the original intention of the parties when signing the contract and will help preserve the integrity and stability of the sport, ”says the note.“From a sports perspective, it makes sense to do it this way, since the start of the first registration period usually coincides with the first day of the new season ”FIFA explains. And it refers to the Regulations of the Statute of Transfers and Players, “which defines the term season as the period that begins with the first official game of the corresponding national league championship and ends with the last official game of the corresponding national league championship.”The statement states: “In general, labor contracts should be governed by national law and the contractual autonomy of the parties. Taking this into account and, in accordance with art. 18, sec. 2 of the RETJ, the following is proposed:(I) If a contract expires on the original end date of the season, This expiration must last until the new end date of the season.(II) If a contract starts on the original start date of the next season, that start It should be postponed until the new start date of the next season.(II) In the event of an overlap of seasons or enrollment periods, and unless all parties agree otherwise, Priority will be given to the previous club to complete the season with its original team, in order to safeguard the integrity of national leagues, FM competitions and continental competitions ”.last_img read more

Oblak, the best goalkeeper of the last decade of LaLiga

first_imgOblak’s debut as a rojiblanco could not have been more dire, in the Champions League, against Olympiacos, three goals. He would not play again six months later and because Moyá injured a finger in the eighths of the Champions League, against Leverkusen. I would begin to make the miracle a routine. Nothing would ever get him out of a goal in which he has become a giant, the best. And always surrounded. Great friends. Savic, Vrsaljko, Saponjic …Goalkeepers with the most matches without conceding a goal in the League–Oblak, 99-Bravo, 80–Courtois, 75–Diego Lopez, 68–Iraizoz, 64–Asenjo, 58–Ter Stegen, 58–Victor Valdes, 54–Keylor Navas, 51–Guaita, fifty Jan Oblak (27 years old) came to Atlético in the summer of 2014 with a heavy duty ahead: replacing Courtois. The Belgian, on loan from Chelsea, was forced to return to London after three unforgettable seasons, Zamora of LaLiga in the last two. Today, almost six years later, their numbers are indisputable. Oblak, Zamora in the last four leagues consecutively, second captain of Atlético, their matches are counted by miracles. It is enough to review the last great game in the world before the coronavirus crisis closed him in: he received 27 shots, made 11 stops, on his gloves Cholo built the victory against Liverpool that would later give him two goals from Llorente. Now an Opta study highlights him as the best goalkeeper in LaLiga of the last decade.No other left the goal as many times to zero as the Slovenian (a total of 99), ahead of Bravo, Ter Stegen or Courtois himself. And that his beginnings in Atlético were not easy. Nothing. He revealed it himself a few months ago in an interview in the Sportsman’s Club. “He was a boy who was new, started with Spanish and did not control it to communicate well. I was sad and alone ”, revealed. He landed with trouble on one hip after becoming the signing for a more expensive goalkeeper, Atletico paid 16 million for him to Benfica. Miguel Ángel Moyá, originally signed to be his substitute, took his place from him with great performances, such as in the Spanish Super Cup against Madrid.last_img read more
