Antic: “They made me the leader of Madrid because of the pressure”

first_imgThe episode of the possible recall from Valverde at Barça It has few precedents in football. Dismiss a coach who goes LaLiga leader It would be a rare avis, but it has a precedent. Radomir Antic (11-22-1948) He was fired by Real Madrid in January 1992 when he was leader and winter champion. Madrid did not win that League with Beenhakker. It was the Barça of the Dream Team of Cruyff. As spoke by phone with the Serbian coach, who directed Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona.Radomir, you will be aware of Ernesto Valverde’s situation in Barcelona. It can be dismissed by being the leader of LaLiga. This will sound to you. On January 27, 1992, Madrid dismissed you after being a winter champion. He was leader of the League.They threw me out of the pressure. They kicked me out because they said we didn’t play well. We had done things very well, but Mendoza made a decision.It has a lot of tranquility. But it would surprise you what happened that day, right?He knows what happens, that one is always happy with himself because he gives everything in his work. I never blame others if I’m fine with what I did. And it was. No one had put Hierro there so far in the center of the field. He scored 34 goals. Butragueño was Pichichi of the League. He talked a lot with him. He said: “Mister, I can also press, help with other things.” And I said: “You to the area.” Where many tachycardia enter, Butragueño knew how to decipher what had to be done. And so he scored many goals.Do you remember the conversation with Mendoza?Yes. He told me not to leave the club, to stay in the offices. That he was a cultured person, that he could speak languages ​​and that he could help. I told him: If something can be said as a coach, Radomir Antic is that I am not inferior to anyone in this profession. And I didn’t want to continue. Do you understand that Barça plans to dismiss Valverde as a leader in LaLiga?They are speculations and I would not like to get into them too much. What I do see clearly is that in Barça a long time ago nobody talks about football and yes about parties, and about meals.Is Barça getting old or does he think he is no longer the best?I don’t think Barça is getting old. I think he continues to maintain a recognizable style and the way he has always played. But this year has had a couple of problems. One is the rhythm of the game. The other, that the regulation has harmed him. Before, the sides were more advanced and that facilitated the exit of the ball. With the new rule (the one that allows to play the ball inside the area after the door kick), the sides have had to lower their position and Barça does not feel comfortable. He loses balls and thus has received several goals this course.And there is talk of Xavi.I have already told him that I am not talking about rumors, but I will tell Xavi about one thing. We had a talk when I was a Barça coach. I said: look, what you do is fine, but you have a good game vision and a good shot, you should play more ahead. He told me that the centrals were asking him to be near them to get the ball played and I told him that I was in charge of it. We raised its position 30 meters and I think that changed Xavi for football.How do you see your former teams from a distance: Madrid, Barça, Atlético?Well I will say one thing that is saying little. Madrid has gained authority in the game. I see it very well, with that domain that I had lost. I think he is the favorite to win the Champions League. Also, I think there is something else that is not said and that was seen in the Camp nou match. Throw a lot from medium distance. I think that is one thing that Zidane orders and is doing many goals like that and I like it. Madrid has a method. And Hazard needs to be incorporated, what Bale can do. I see it favorite for the Champions League and for LaLiga.last_img read more

Morata reaffirms itself as the ‘9’

first_imgBut in his new role as scorer he is untouchable for Cholo. His chip changed on October 22, when he jumped into the field in the 70th minute made the winning goal against Bayer Leverkusen, in the end capital in the classification to the knockout stages of the Champions League. Until that time he had only been a little, on the first day against Getafe, but from his big header against the Germans would arrive others five consecutive matches (Athletic, Alavés, Sevilla, Leverkusen again and Espanyol), becoming the only light in attack of an Atlético completely dry beyond its ‘9’. After overcoming another drought of five games without scoring, the goal has returned to Morata, which adds three in the last four games (Osasuna, Betis and Barcelona). His ten goals, all in different matches, have had their ability as a common pattern at the first touch, Complicating the completion when you have had more to think about it. In nine of them he only needed a touch to send it to the network, while the other was in Germany with control and shot (two touches) cutting differences against Bayer Leverkusen.

He is the top scorer of the team with six goals over Correa, the other player more fit in attack and with whom he understands perfectly and João Félix, second and third in the list of scorers with four goals each. But against Barça, in addition to being the finalizer of the penalty, it was a capital player in the comeback. Morata had been unable to receive the ball with advantage in the first 75 minutes of the game, very close to the Oblak area and with a clearly defensive mission, trying to hold back the ball in attack to give oxygen to the team. However, since Atlético raised the pressure line, its participation began to be increasing and a great pass into space to Vitolo ended up leading to the penalty which Morata himself finished. After provoking with a good ride by the band the center that was diverted by hand by Piqué without the referee or the VAR pointing out a penalty, also left a pass to the perfect gap to Correa after taking a stunt with Piqué so that the Argentine did the definite goal that gave Atleti the victory.center_img Atlético continues to probe the transfer market to prop up the lead with a ram that helps increase the scoring figures of the team, now on the rise. While follow the tug of war with PSG by Cavani, where the French are reluctant to let him out in JanuaryMorata has taken advantage of Diego Costa’s absence due to injury and has settled in the position of ‘9’ rojiblanco.

Dupont: from ‘marked’ to key in Madrid’s isolation

first_imgREALMADRID.COM & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>REALMADRID.COM (DAILY AS) In nine months, Grégory Dupont (Valenciennes, France, 05-09-1972) has already gone through several stages at Real Madrid. Signed in July at the express request of Zidane to replace Antonio Pintus (the Italian’s relationship with Zizou was very deteriorated), he arrived with the guarantee of having won the World Cup as a physical trainer in France but with the Incognito of how they were going to curdle their methods in a locker room accustomed to Pintus; happened to be highly questioned at the start of the preseason due to the plague of muscle injuries; recovered a lot of credit when Madrid picked up cruising speed in late 2019 and early 2020 and in this break forced by the coronavirus crisis It has become the key to keeping the insole in the best possible shape while the insulation lasts.The scientist, As Dupont is known for his obsession with the data and statistics of each player he has under his command (“I am an investigator,” he has stated on more than one occasion), he landed at Real Madrid from the French team with the World Cup under arm as cover letter.

What would happen in a League with only Spanish goals?

first_imgIf last August, someone came to stipulate with the possibility that Spanish football was stopped for more than a month and that the future of competitions was as highly uncertain as it is today, no one would have considered it. . So, LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank live one of the most anomalous situations in history, if not the most. Imagine then that, as an emergency measure, it is decided that the championship will be decided only taking into account the goals of national footballers. An impossible solution clearly, but that, once seen, leaves surprising data and an impossible classification.Today, would be champion of the League, Getafe !, with a total of 48 points in the 27 days played. Three other surprising teams would follow in Champions positions: Athletic (46), I raised (46) and Real society (46). They would still have options to fight for the title on Alaves, fifth with 44 in his locker, the Villarreal (43), the Atlético de Madrid (43) or the Betis (42). The same clubs would descend from category as in the real classification: the Spanish (21), the Majorca (21) and the Leganes (twenty-one). However, the most striking contrasts occur in leading equipment. AIOL & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Villarreal revolutionizes LaLiga with an eleven plagued by Spanish.AIOL (DAILY AS) CHEMA DIAZ & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Ferran, capital of Valencia de Celades.CHEMA DIAZ (DAILY AS) Disaster of the greatsWith the exception of Atlético de Madrid, the greats of Spanish football would accuse in this fictional classification the important role of foreigners in their staff. The one who would be closest to the abyss is the Seville, who has only scored ten of his 39 goals with national footballers. Ocampos, De Jong or the Mute There have been offensive references this season and none of them have Spanish nationality. Munir, the signing of Suso or Joan Jordán offset the balance. Even so, Lopetegui would be in a critical situation, on the brink of descent from which he would only have a margin of six points.The situation of Real Madrid and Barcelona is not much better. The white team comes out afloat thanks to its strength behind, but would have no options to get into European positions. He would have only conceded twelve goals, although his goalscoring figures are very poor: ten goals. Lucas Vázquez, Isco, Carvajal or Nacho help; Ramos leads with five goals. He BarcaFor his part, he has scored a bit more, but shows more weakness in defensive matters. Alba, Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Busquets and, especially, Ansu Fati they are the ones that have given the best offensive performance to Valverde and Setién.Valencia represents a very different case to that of the two colossi of Spanish football. It does work much better in attack. What’s more, perhaps three of its capital players as they are Ferran Torres, Parejo or Rodrigo Moreno they are candidates to be called by Luis Enrique. However, in defense, the team trained by Celades has conceded a total of 27 goals from national footballers. What’s more, just the Spanish has fitted more with this scale of all the competition. He Athletic de Simeone would lose a position with respect to his real position, but he would still fight to be champion and comes out well compared to his more direct rivals. The Bordalás machineUntil the halt due to the coronavirus, Getafe was being together with Real Sociedad the great revelation of the championship. Especially for their defensive strength, being the fourth team that has received the fewest goals this season. But also for its attack, being a particularly effective team that knows how to get the most out of each of its men. Of the 37 goals scored in total, 27 of them have been scored by Spaniards. They both score Ángel Rodríguez (10 targets), Jaime Mata (8) and Jorge Molina (5). The trio of attackers shine for their movements with and without the ball and their high intensity during the 90 minutes.Cucurella, Etxeita or David Soria They do not contribute as much on the goalscoring plane, but they are also capital footballers for Bordalás. So much so that in defensive matters, the ‘Geta’ is the team that receives the fewest number of possible internationals, with nine. He is also the one who loses the least (three games), although he is not the one who wins the most: 12 vs. 14 from Levante. The technician has found the key to shine and take a team with a limited budget to the top of the standings. The key is the Spanish, although none of them usually travel with the National Team. Perhaps they could have entered Luis Enrique’s list for March, but the pandemic canceled that call.Juan Carlos Cárdenas & nbsp; (EFE) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Roger’s goals give wings to Levante.Juan Carlos Cárdenas (EFE) Villarreal: national eleven, a sign of successOn February 23, Javi Calleja surprised with a lineup made up of eleven Spanish players. In LaLiga Santander, beyond Athletic’s philosophy, it is not usual to see this. What’s more, for the first time in Villarreal’s twenty years in Primera, a lineup of this caliber was presented. The chosen ones were Asenjo, Albiol, Pau, Alberto Moreno, Rubén Peña, Iborra, Trigueros, Cazorla, Moi Gómez, Gerard Moreno and Paco Alcácer. That is to say, regular and highest level footballers. It was against Atlético de Madrid, although later it has been repeated. The result was not expected: 3-1.Even so, Villarreal is one of the best positioned in the fictitious classification that we present to you. The Castellón team would be sixth in the table, with 43 points. In addition, it would be the one that scores the most goals: 32. His problem, as it happens in reality, is defense. It has fitted a total of 23 goals of national soccer players, being the fourth that fits the most after Espanyol, Valencia and Valladolid. However, the club’s daring bid to give many gallons to the talent of the house works and the statistics support it.last_img read more

Borussia want to stay Achraf: Madrid must decide

first_imgThe performance of the Moroccan winger in the Bundesliga has been exceptional in the two seasons he has been on loan in the Ruhr area. In total he has played 65 games, has scored ten goals and has given 17 assists. He is the undisputed starter and has been able to perform in both bands at the same level. Actually, Transfermarkt gives it a market value of 54 million. Who knows if, when the time comes, Madrid is obliged to balance balances due to the crisis and prefers to sell it and keep Reguilón. At the moment the only certainty in the Achraf situation is Borussia’s interest in continuing its services. For the outcome of the operation it is also essential to know the player’s desire. Contractually he ends with Madrid in 2021, but will automatically extend two more years if he were part of the first team. Now he has a Castilla record. It is clear that Achraf will want to charge as a first level player and not as one of Castilla. “If Madrid wants me to come back, I will come back,” said the Moroccan, who also sends contradictory messages, stating that his priority is “playing minutes.” At Real Madrid, with the crisis over and such an uncertain outcome, they don’t want to hear about making decisions yet. Borussia Dortmund want to keep Achraf and will consider it for Madrid together after the end of this season, after the restart. Thus he can advance the German club’s willingness to continue with the side. What is to be defined is whether in the modality of assignment, once again, or with transfer. Madrid had Achraf’s return this summer, but that position is also covered by Reguilón, ceded this one in Seville and that, in the same way, is having a great season.From now until the talks start, the situation may have changed a lot. ANDStrategically, it is in Real Madrid’s interest to maintain the excellent relations it has with Borussia, very bold in bringing out young talents. Now there is a name on the table for the nearest future, that of Haaland. Madrid could exit Acraf and then seek a return of favors with the Norwegian striker.last_img read more
