The Cholo will give rest to players of the transcendence of Oblak, Thomas and Morata and others like Adam, Hermoso, Manu Sánchez and Marcos Llorente They will be in the starting lineup.

first_imgThe Greek Government has decided to modify the sanctions regime for football teams to avoid the decline of PAOK, first in the classification, and al Xanthi, seventh, for belonging to the same owner, Russian tycoon Ivan Savvidis. The sanction, imposed by the Committee of Professional Sports, unleashed a revolution in Greek football, from which the voices of the world of politics have not been absent, including that of a conservative MEP who was a player and president of PAOK. Finally, it has been the Government itself that has intervened in the situation, replacing the possible declines with sanctions that are limited to economic fines and / or deduction of points in the league classification. “The country cannot afford to be divided because of football“explained Stelios Petsas, a spokesman for the Government, at a press conference. In the soccer field, there has also been a crossroads of accusations between the two biggest soccer clubs in the country, with the suspicion on the part of PAOK that Olympiacos – second in the qualifying table – is behind the decision of the Committee. It’s a statement, the black and white club has asked for the resignation of Lefteris Avgenakis, vice minister of Sports, accusing him of “being an Olympiacos envoy” and “wanting to dirty the club’s history”. Through Twitter, Avgenakis himself said yesterday that the Government accepted the recommendation of the Committee and had to wait to have all the documentation to make a decision on the descent of the equipment.Today, he has encountered an adverse reaction from the Executive. The consequences of these sanctions have reached Brussels, where Theodoros Zagorakis, MEP of New Democracy and former player and former president of PAOK, had threatened to leave the parliamentary group and become independent if the Thessaloniki club was punished with the descent. The response of the Greek executive has been blunt. Just a few hours after his threat he has expelled Zagorakis from the fraction. “The Government does not accept blackmail“Petsas sentenced to the media. The news of the sanctions comes just one day after PAOK reached the leadership of the domestic championship, with a 1-0 victory against the Volos. The Xanthi, meanwhile, is in Full fight to play the Europa League next season.last_img read more

first_imgTired of waiting and not seeing results, Juan Ferrando decided to consult other specialists: “They they have found medication, but it will be a while until I can be 100%. “For now, the Spanish sees” flashes, letters or some colors, but reading, for example, is unfeasible. “Nor can he lead an autonomous life:” If I go to any site that I don’t know have to accompany me. I am focused on performing the treatment as rigorously as possible. They haven’t given me dates, but doctors insist that I make daily life as much as possible. “Despite losing his vision, at first Juan Ferrando tried to lead the Volos from the hospital, winning against Panionios and reaping a draw at home against Olympiacos: “I tried until December 22, but they began to emerge internal problems and I decided to separate. ” That was when, despite his delicate state of health, the Spanish began to receive job offers: “There was a club that disputes European competition that was very interested. The president told me she would wait for me and I was very flattered, but I had to say no. We are at the end of January and I remain the same. Doctors say there are improvements internally, but I’m still disabled. “The Volos NFC, a club that Juan Ferrando took from Third to First in just two seasons, worried about his health at first, then nothing. “I don’t take it badly because I know this is so. If you win they behave well with you; if you lose they throw you out. Well this is the same: are you healthy and work? Well; can’t you? Well, then out. When a player the crusader is broken, they also take away the card. It’s Greece, “analyzes the Spaniard after traveling to the Hellenic country to collect the award for best coach of last season. “I am very grateful that you recognize my work, but unfortunately I can’t work and that, for me, is the worst thing there is“sentence.

The Catalan took the reins of a Volos NFC who played in Third and, in just two seasons, managed to promote him to the Greek Super League. He was the longest-running coach of Greek football, but his success story took a 180º turn last December, when contracted a bacteria that made him lose his vision.Since then, Juan Ferrando’s life is “shit“. “I can not do anything. I live for treatment. I have to always be free to talk to doctors, pending drops, to be controlled all day. I try to read or watch TV, but I can’t. I can’t do anything, “he says. The Spaniard began to feel bad the first week of December, but it wasn’t until day 8 when he went to the hospital:”I had been told it was nothing, but after a game against Panathinaikos I started to see white lights and decided to go to the doctor. There they told me that what I had was more serious and they moved me to Larissa. They told me that I had a bacteria attached to the corneas and they took me to Thessaloniki, where I stayed for another month and a half without improving anything. “last_img read more

Granada – Athletic: Yuri leads Athletic to the final

first_imgChangesÍñigo Córdoba (58 ‘, Layer), Brice (60 ‘, Yangel Herrera), Aduriz (78 ‘, San José), Fede Vico (84 ‘, Foulquier), Antoñin (84 ‘, Carlos Neva), Ohian Tirapu (91 ‘, Muniain) Yuri woke Los Cármenes. The Granada had done the most difficult thing carried away by a hobby that knew that it lived a historical moment. And the Nasrids did not wrinkle. Upside down. After a first half that ended with a goalless draw, Carlos Fernández matched the tie and Germán put Granada in the grand final for a few minutes. It took Yuri to step on the area and beat Rui Silva. Athletic did not make their best game, uncomfortable and without that mordant that stuns their rivals, but won their ticket to La Cartuja where the Royal Society was already waiting. Granada probably deserved more. There will be a Basque derby in the grand final. Both teams came out with their eleven gala and five defense. A goal in any goal could change everything. With Los Cármenes delivered, Granada came out to bite. It took two seconds to make the first foul. I wanted to intimidate Athletic. But he didn’t do it sometimes. Machís, with a soft shot, and Yangel in a shot outside, put the first approaches. However, although Granada had more mordant, its centers from the bands did little damage to the three Basque towers and Athletic was growing as the Nasrids lowered the suffocating pressure. Rui Silva had to appear, although to get a shot from Victor Diaz who was going to goal. Y Williams put the fear in the body to the grenadines. First with a shot that the Portuguese goal sent to the corner, then with a shot outside and later assisting Raúl García who, just, sent the ball high. Forgive Athletic. Granada again suffocated and was about to roll it Unai who, with the pressure of Carlos, lost the ball, but the Sevillian did not know how to solve the move already very locked. Y, when the first part was dying, Yangel finished off a corner and Williams, under sticks, saved his team. The game went to rest with the feeling of both teams thought more about not fitting than scoring. Goals1-0, 47 ‘: Carlos Fernandez, 2-0, 75 ‘: German, 2-1, 80 ‘: Yuricenter_img The second part started with an Athletic who wanted to have the ball. But, after three minutes, Machís went into the left and put a center measured to Carlos Fernández who made a certain stubble to make the tables in the tie to wake up from the lethargy of rest to the stands. Granada had already matched San Mamés and now it was Athletic who looked the most pressed. Garitano switched to four defense to have more presence above, but what he did was that Granada found the bands more easily. The Basque coach’s plan did not work. Little deep and without finding Williams, the ball was the most dangerous of the Bilbao. Granada, on the other hand, was quieter. The initial anxiety to tie the tie had disappeared and each hospitalized by band was danger. He had a good Williams, also Carlos Neva. Until, when there was a quarter of an hour left, Machís hung the second corner followed in favor of the Nasrids and Germán emerged for another big shot to put the 2-0 that gave the momentary pass to Granada. There was a lot of time left, but Athletic was touched. He was not in front of a group from Granada that did not weigh his legs and flew across the lawn, carried on wings by the fans. GAritano pulled Aduriz to intimidate the Nasrid defense more and the plan, this time, worked. In a good play on the left, Yuri entered the area and, instead of looking for the center, pulled to beat Rui Silva and turn off Los Cármenes. Athletic was now the finalist. There were only eight minutes left and, if something has the Nasrid team, it’s ambition. He went for the goal, that goal that put him back in the grand final. Diego Martínez also moved the bench with two attack men, Vico and debuting Antoñín. But Athletic, tanned in a thousand battles, was turning the revolutions down, stopping the rhythm of a Granada that knew that the final was escaping. Desperately, with balls that didn’t go anywhere, Granada was exhausting its options to make its history bigger. La Cartuja will live a Basque derby in the grand final. Athletic continues to dream about this year if they take out the barge. Granada puts an end to his dream butler with a very high head.

first_imgIn fact, Medeiros has been in quarantine since last Monday the test was carried out to find out whether he was a carrier of the coronavirus or not, which in Brazil has already caused seven deaths and infected about 650 people. “I appreciate the hundreds of messages I have received in recent days, not only from the Colorado nation, but also from people throughout Brazil. With serenity and collaboration, we are going to face that challenge together!” He said. The International has halted its activities indefinitely since last Tuesday.

The other mess of the 2nd and 3rd B: who qualifies for the Cup?

first_imgThe Spanish Football Federation, chaired by Rubiales, and the Territories yesterday approved the conclusion of the regular phase of the season in the Second B and Third Division. This decision, in addition to the doubts that it generates about the future of the competition for the next seasons (increase in participants and Second B Pro), There are also certain uncertainties, such as who will qualify for the next edition of the Copa del Rey. As AS has consulted the Federation, the qualifying criteria for the KO tournament is not yet decided for and could vary Given the anomalous situation with which the season has ended.The future of the competitions is uncertain and even more so its calendar. The RFEF warned yesterday in the statement: “Since the duration of the 20/21 season will be somewhat less than usual.” Which could leave with fewer dates for the Copa del Rey dispute if LaLiga and UEFA competitions did not reduce their formats.The KO tournament has become an important source of income for modest football teams and more since the remodeling carried out by Rubiales. Participation in the Cup is not trivial for these games, since it means receiving 40,000 euros plus for aid from the Impulso 23 program of the RFEF in Second B and 23,000 in Third. In addition, what it means at the level of sponsorships to play against a Primera and that it be televised. Significant amounts of money for teams that their income will be significantly reduced because fans are not expected to be able to access stadiums until 2021. This in most cases will cut your budgets in half, since the main source of income is in the ticket offices and the subscribers (in addition to advertising on the fences of the stadiums and that not all the Second B and Third parties).Although the Federation still claims not to have decided whether to carry the same classification criteria, It does seem the closest to the decisions made in other competitions. Like the one that the last day of the League serves to decide who would go to Europe next season if it is not finished, or the criteria announced yesterday for other non-professional categories under the ownership of the RFEF: “On the other hand, in those competitions in which there is no final phase, the position of each team in the classification will determine the champion and the places of promotion or, where appropriate, participation in European competitions “. The reasoning of alternatives to this system becomes complicated. If the season ends in July with the express playoff and the season is expected to start later, the only solution would be to play a series of playoffs before the next campaign to decide who qualifies.If the criteria of last season were maintained, it would already be known what almost all the participants would be. The 20 First Clubs, the 22 Second, 28 Second B (the first seven of each group without counting subsidiaries), 32 Third teams (18 first and 14 remaining second for best coefficient), 4 Federation Cup semi-finalists and 10 winners of the preliminary round of the 20 champions of the highest category of each Territorial.
