Calleri: “We have come to RdT hair, we combine very well”

first_img“Hot” even for the defeat of last weekend at Nuevo Los Cármenes, Jonathan Calleri appeared on Wednesday in Sant Adrià to also address the controversy caused by the penalty against Granada, which Raúl de Tomás executed after the Uruguayan implored him to execute him.“Maybe at another time there would have been no one to kick the penalty, everyone would have hidden, “he analyzed positively, who explained that” we all wanted to help the team not to score a goal, but to contribute and to put the team ahead. “Calleri added: “I have talked to Raúl, everything is more than good. He was not angry, but he was not spoken and that happened. Then there are the cameras, but everything remains in the field, “he said. The forward assumed that his “first months were disastrous because I arrived on the third day, without preseason, I got injured twice when I hadn’t done it in four years … It was four disastrous months, “he reiterated. And he added: “With Abelardo I feel much more comfortable, I think it looks like I’m in a better shape. And if I can score goals, much better. “And of your current roleHe said: “I am aware that If I can help the team and win, even if I don’t check I will be happy. The goal is necessary for everyone, today maybe I am fulfilling another function, the one that is more focused is Raul. Obviously I would like to score more goals, but I am finding my form. “ Y he praised Abelardo Fernández: “I have a great love for himHe has always behaved very well with me (they agreed last year in Alavés) and I consider him a great coach. I think it will help us out of this situation, and we must help him. “From this Sunday’s meeting against Mallorcaassured that “It is a momentous match because it will mark us for the rest of the season. It is not a final because it does not decide anything, but that does not mean that we do not take it as a final. If we get that first victory at home, it will be very important for what remains. “ What the Uruguayan did not clarify is if he will continue throwing them RdT, if Marc Roca will, so far the official pitcher (sanctioned against Granada) or if he will do it himself: “That goes more for the confidence and timing of each player. The two games in which Marc scored I didn’t play them. During the week we practice. In other teams he did kick and put them in. “And he finished: “As long as Raul continues to score goals, welcome. The next penalties he will kick.”From his concrete partnership with De Tomás, Calleri acknowledged: “Raúl’s arrival has come to our hair. He is a great player who can give us a lot. I like to play with him, we combine very well and we can give great joy to the team and the club, “he said.center_img LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 5, 2020last_img read more

Valencia’s defense becomes invisible away from home

first_imgIt is obvious that Valencia is deflating from the defending, especially at home. Counting the arabian party As away from home (although theoretically neutral field), Valencia has played six games away from Mestalla. And he has let them finish him 94 times at the door, an average of 15.66 auctions to door by game.Before him Getafe, last Saturday, it was the match that more attacked him to Valencia: 22 auctions to door (eight between sticks). But letting yourself finish off so much is becoming a trend. The Pomegranate, last Tuesday, in Copa, he topped 20 times (five to door). The Cultural, from Second B, he finished 12 times; the Logroñés, also from the bronze category, he tested Jaume 9 times. The Majorca, on the other hand, threw him 14 times, in another match blushing at home. Real Madrid, in Supercopa, finished off the door of Jaume 17 times. The Valencia curdled probably the worst match of the whole season in the Coliseum. Getafe passed over the Celades team. And in addition to 3-0, the worst were the feelings left by the Celades team. Nail sensations that are repeated in the last dates, whenever the team plays far from Mestalla.And it has been precisely far from Valencia where Valencia has already missed the possibility of fighting for two titles (Super Cup and Copa del Rey). Plus, out of home is where Valencia is harvesting the most humiliating defeats of recent times, as in Majorca or Getafe, which is ballasting the option of approaching the Champions positions. All of it in 2020.last_img read more

“People have wanted to kill us and honestly it is unfair”

first_imgSaúl Ñíguez has granted an interview to ‘The Guardian’ in which he reviews how the season is developing at Atlético de Madrid, how he feels in his role in the team and how he sees the tie against Liverpool, in the first leg of the eighth of the Champions, among other matters. Against Liverpool: “They have dogs of prey in the middle that run, they press. It’s not just running for the simple act of running: they do things that are not normal and look messy, but are neat, mechanized. Klopp said they play with the heart, but that’s planned, it’s very difficult to escape when they attack you like this, it’s amazing: they press like animals, because they know that even if they steal the ball, there will be seven of them running like crazy to come back Liverpool is very complete, a great team in all the plots. They are very, very, very good at the transition. I saw them against Norwich and if it weren’t for the extraordinary control of Mané, they would not have won. They have taken many games that could have tied or lost; it is not luck , it’s work, sacrifice, not giving up a single ball for lost. “Season: “There is no memory in football, what you did yesterday is of no use. We had a good track record before Christmas, then we fell and it was difficult. People wanted to kill us. I think it’s unfair? Honestly yes. But it is life. People whistle Cholo, important players; Our fans are demanding. If we win two or three games, it will change again. We know how we can damage Liverpool, we know their strengths and weaknesses, and we always compete against great teams. “ Contract until 2026: “I have a long contract. Simeone is the only person who values ​​my work. I play almost every minute. He knows that I suffer in positions that are not ideal for me, but he appreciates what I do and I can’t say no. I can adapt in any style and I am grateful to the club: they have treated me like a family member since I was very young. “Change in Atlético: “I don’t think evolution is the way: we have to be what we always were, which allowed us to compete.”Transition year: “It’s a tough year. A lot of important people left. Important players also came, but they are young, people who don’t know the club and need to adapt. You have to feel the club, believe in it. If we die, let it be with our own ideas. “Gabi: “He is intelligent, and although there are other players (now) who are technically better, he facilitated the work of his teammates. Being Gabi is not easy: you have to cover everyone. I have to help on the left, on the right , in many positions. The team comes first, even if I am not individually at the same level as two years ago. I would like to focus on one position and improve and learn. “From Calderón to Wanda: “Vicente Calderón is unique, historical, but the club needed to change, grow, and it is difficult to say this because we are in the Metropolitan, which is more comfortable, but the Calderón was different: the magic it generated, the people …” .Best memory in the Calderón: “I always say that my best memory is a victory that was defeat (2-1, in the return of the Champions League semifinals of the 2016-17 season). And yet, the whole stadium stayed, nobody left. A flood was falling, all the fans of Madrid had raincoats, those of Atlético were only in a shirt, soaked, and singing in the rain, supporting us, comforting us … When you see that you think: ‘Pfff, how can I not give everything for this people?’”.last_img read more

De Frutos leads some winter signings that are consolidated

first_imgAnother winter transfer that works is Yacine Qasmi. The striker signed for Rayo until 2022 on the last day of the market and Ulloa’s injury made him step forward. Yacine has played 404 minutes in five games, one as a substitute (his debut against Oviedo) and the rest as a starter (Tenerife, Huesca, Albacete and Elche). He debuted as a scorer at Belmonte, precisely a place where he also scored with his previous team, Elche. “He has very good technique and a very good touch, it was a success to bring him,” confessed the coach.For his part, Isi Palazón has already left details. His arrival was one of the most exciting in Vallecas, after having suffered as a rival this season with Ponferradina. Nevertheless, the winger has yet to score or assist. And although he has started in five of the six games in which he has participated (total 395 minutes), now he will have to stop. Competition has punished him with two sanction matches, which will mean the return of Álvaro García, the most affected by winter reinforcements.More testimonial is proving the presence of Juan Villar. The forward landed on loan at Vallecas last February 20 “without competition rhythm”, as Paco explained. Reason why he has only played 64 minutes in the last three days. The tip has come out as a shock, from the bench, against Huesca, Albacete and Elche, but has not yet had the opportunity to wet. Something to come. The Lightning has high hopes for him. “He is a First class player: how he moves, how he touches the ball, his desire … “, defined Paco.Therefore, the current Ray has found in three of its winter reinforcements three fixed in the eleven. Yacine, Isi and De Frutos have settled in the franjirroja front these last four games (Tenerife, Huesca, Albacete and Elche), which have resulted in one win, two draws and one defeat. El Rayo closed the winter market with three new faces in its ranks: De Frutos, Isi and Yacine. However, Ulloa’s serious injury forced the franjirrojo club to strengthen after the window had been closed. This is how the arrival of Juan Villar was hatched. The objective was to reinforce the front and the ends, two demarcations with a staff deficit and which greatly reduced the departure of Embarba to Espanyol, who had become the top scorer (seven) and assistant (eleven) of the Vallecano team.A month and a half has passed since the market closed. Time in which De Frutos has become the undisputed owner and the most outstanding winter signing. The transfer of the extreme, 22 years old, became official on January 17 and, just one day later, debuted with the Strip in the match against Ponferradina. It came out as a shock and shook the duel in the twenty minutes he was on the field. Something that made him earn the title in the subsequent Cup match (Betis) and LaLiga (Extremadura, Mirandés, Oviedo, Tenerife, Huesca, Albacete and Elche).De Frutos has played a total of 598 minutes in the League, spread over eight games and has confirmed himself as one of the most fit players in the squad, curdling great performances throughout these days. In addition to quality, he has a goal. In fact, the definitive 2-0 at Huesca bears his signature. The Segovian scored a precious goal, picking up the ball at the front and placing it directly into the squad. Yes, Paco Jémez runs away from comparisons with Embarba: “Jorge has very good conditions, but he must improve his numbers. It is not just a matter of what you do, but what does what you do translate into. “His characteristics have made Vallecas fall in love: speed, power, overflow, dribbling and an extraordinary ability to destabilize any rival defense. He is a growing talent. Hence, the rayista technician asks him for more, aware that wicker has: “It will explode when it is able to score many more goals, to give more assists … When he manages to define all that he does for the good of the team. We are working so that Jorge can be that player because he has the capacity. “last_img read more
