first_imgWhat a 77th birthday on Sunday in San Mamés with people standing!Yes, they did it by surprise, because I didn’t expect it. It was a secret, and the truth is that it moved me, it was very beautiful. And listen in the new field in minute one ‘Iribar is great, as Iribar there is none’ already disarmed him.Well (laughs). I have always said that this song has encouraged me a lot, but I think it is more like me …Let me doubt it. Let’s go with the Cup. What do you remember about that semifinal against Granada in 1969?It was a good team. The tie looked like it could be matched. First we played there and they got ahead. It marked Noya, a blond who was very incisive. We tied through Javi Clemente. Then the goals were not worth double in the opposite field. The tie was promising.In San Mamés they were stronger. Copa del Rey* Data updated as of March 3, 2020 Forever. We were growing up. We won two to zero.That Granada was run by Marcel Domingo, a French exporter.If I remember.In his team were Tinas, Lorenzo, Barrenechea, Santos, Barrachina, Ureña and Ñito, a canary, goalkeeper …I just was with him! He is from Tenerife and we greet each other on the day of the Cup qualifier. He has had the most contact of that generation. Ñito was in Valencia and was once selected.Later, in the 70s, the Granada of ‘Los Carniceros’ rose to fame, with two very tough centrals such as the Argentine Aguirre, who apparently had falsified papers to impersonate Paraguayan, and Paraguayan Fernández. They became sixth in the league.Fernandez was said to have withdrawn Amancio after an injury that required 150 stitches. It was a team with a very expeditious defense (laughs). We talk about other times. In all the teams there were players who defended without contemplation against players like our Uriarte, Argoitia or Arieta at that time. There was more permissiveness, the pressure was enormous towards the referee. The moves after the matches were not analyzed. There was no turning back and the teams became very strong at home. Depending on the level of the adversary, he defended himself very strongly.They even had Enrique Porta, who was top scorer in First.It was very good, yes. Lasa played with them before coming to Bilbao. He acted as an extreme and with us he went to the right side.He will have an intense memory of the final against Elche.Yes, those memories are fresh, because it is a final. The day of winning a title again. We had a great responsibility because we had not achieved it for eleven years. Before we had played two finals, against Zaragoza and Valencia and we could not take them. We were eager and very responsible. Elche gave us work. Almost until the end we did not achieve it, with a great goal from Antón Arieta.That Athletic was good, huh? Rojo I, Arieta, Igartua, Sáez … with Rafa Iriondo as coach.Yes it was. Very good. As a team we worked very well.Do you remember the celebrations?It is one of the best memories of my sporting life. After dinner, celebrating there with the Cup and throwing some songs … the rigor, end of the season, was the last game and we had permission to leave, we went out in a group and celebrated. We were very much in a gang.And the next day, more party.As soon as we got up we were thinking about the reception, we thought we would have to go a little uniformed, then there was no culture of wearing the shirts … we took Guillermo Perdiguero, the masseuse and the one who was in charge of the material, we sent him for the stores for a shirt that was red and white, and he got it for the 20 or 21 we were there.center_img Copa del Rey* Data updated as of March 3, 2020 They entered Durango, in honor of Anton Arieta.Yes, he deserved that the people jelly him, for the goal of the final. The baserritarras, grandparents, children … all came. And some with the hoe because there was nothing else!They went down by Atxuri.They mounted us in a truck. We were crowded. You touched the people on the balconies with your hand. When you win, you think: mission accomplished.The return this time is in Los Cármenes. Does that balance the forces a little more?We have a good result, but they, when playing at home have that plus. Always like the return in your fief when there is a double game. We will have to be very focused, because they also have a very good team at the moment. You have to be very put to avoid scares. We have a very good defense and that can give us a lot, but we must have respect and success in the face of the opposing goal.He talked about the pressure they had 50 years ago to win a title after so long. Is it comparable to now? The barge has not been removed since 1984. Only the 2015 Super Cup has been won.Can be. It is a great opportunity. We are all aware; the first, the players, to be back in a final. In the last ten years we have been in a few. We already know what our people like to be in the Cup finals.Due to the fact that Barça, Madrid and Atlético are not there, do you think that it is more feasible than ever in this recent era?Due to the fact that these great teams are not there, the Cup is different. You always think you can have more options, but in football everything is hypothetical.It’s true, there are examples throughout history.Look at 58, when Athletic won Real Madrid, European champion, to a match. It was played in Chamartín. And the surprise came, Athletic won by zero to two. Football has that component of luck that harbors those surprises, that’s why it’s so big.What has evolved football from that semifinal of 1969 to the present. Have you thought about it? You were an avant-garde in that serve with your hand, you were great clenching your fists … Now the goalkeeper has to be one more field player. Everything has changed a lot.Yes, it has evolved, but the former remains the same: stop. The rules have changed and that has made the goalkeeper’s job difficult. The goalkeeper has been changing the way he plays, he is now a footballer, the libero. With advanced defenses, they force you to have other positions. It is the sign of the times, everything evolves. That improves the qualities of a goalkeeper. Is more difficult. You have to stop and know how to play, the two facets are very important, in certain teams more than in others. That requires more preparation. It is convenient to progress on this issue without any doubt.What goalkeeper do you like about the current ones?I could not quote one. There are many and good. Here, in LaLiga, Ter Stegen, Oblak, Courtois. Now he is in Madrid. I loved Atlético. They are sober. A little like me.In the crossing of Athletic through this Cup the goalkeepers have been very important.Two batches of penalties were saved, with Herrerín and Ezkieta.Should we score in Granada or should we find a zero draw?It is convenient to score. Always try to do it outside, because a goal gives you much more life. It would grant us many possibilities. If not, you have to be very tense trying not to get stuck. It is not convenient to have too much uncertainty (laughs). The game is complicated, but I insist that we have a good result.This Cup format has been beautiful.I love it, in football you have to give everyone a chance. It is the essence of football, giving more opportunities to the participant, especially the most humble. Strengthen the humble. There have been small teams that have been able to eliminate First clubs. And there is the Mirandés. It’s nice, exciting and positive to see them.The president of the Port of Bilbao, Ricardo Barkala, asks to use another means other than the barge if the Cup is won for security reasons.We’ll talk on Friday if you think so.What can it mean for Athletic to recover the path of the titles?The philosophy is very reinforced, we are a team that even in the League we are able to beat Barcelona. Those matches stay in the retina of the whole fans. And it adds to the children and the next quarry. It is a reinforcement. Whenever you win something, it reinforces you. But I still think that everything is very well established.last_img read more

first_imgAnderlecht is in negotiations with its players for them to give up a month’s salary to help the viability of the club in the coronavirus crisis. However, the talks are not coming to fruition and there are some soccer players who resist giving in to the entity the money that corresponds to them, as reported by the Belgian newspaper HLN.As well, Kompany, first team player, se has grown tired of such uncertainty and has offered to pay the salary himself those soccer players who refuse to give up their wages. “The choice is yours, but those who choose their money are not supportive“commented the Belgian central defender at HLN.

first_imgThe renewal of Javier Eraso with Leganés (will continue to be blue and white until 2022), leaves Alexander Szymanowski, captain of the cucumbers (31 years old) as the only Lega-owned footballer to end his contract this season, is on June 30 or later depending on what the Covid-19 pandemic dictates. Its continuity south of the capital is, right now, an unknown factor, although after five seasons with Madrid residents, his options to continue in Butarque are getting smaller.The Hispanic-Argentine wants to renew. This is how he transmitted it in the locker room and also to the environment of a club that already knows that the footballer would be happy to continue wearing the cucumber shirt. With the laurel’s shield, Szymanowski is a legend. He is one of the two survivors of the squad of promotion that remains in the team. The other is Bustinza. Until last November he was the club’s top scorer in Primera with ten goals. One of them, in front of Athletic in San Mamés in 2017, he gave the first stay to Madrid residents. In the elite. The wardrobe wants and appreciates it. “Alexander is a captain, a true captain. Hopefully both he and Eraso will stay”, said Rubén Pérez, another of the captains in a recent interview. The renewal of the Navarrese has already occurred. It remains to be seen with Szyma. The problem of injuriesWith him his problem has been injuries. On December 9, 2017, in Riazor, he played his last match in good physical condition. Since then, he has accumulated a rosary of ailments that have kept him away from the playing fields except in sporadic periods. Last season he was able to play 10 minutes from the last day, but he wanted the misfortune that, two and a half months later, occurred a broken crusader in preseason that still keeps him on the dry dock.The potential lengthening of the season could give him the opportunity to play this course, something that would have been difficult if he had followed the normal rhythm. Despite this, the footballer’s physical condition raises many doubts. No one is clear in Butarque when he will return and under what conditions. Hence, for now, the option of its continuity is not contemplated with optimism.In any case, it is not ruled out either. The scenario of unknowns that is drawn around Leganés (in which category he will play, what his economic potential will be, etc.) means that nobody closes the door to the extreme left, one of the most charismatic and historical footballers of the Blue and Whites’ club.last_img read more

first_imgPier Luigi Cherubino faces his second year in the highest Spanish category. The Argentine saved last year the Passion fruit after Toni Ayala’s health problems. He saved Tenerife and in Christmas Betis called him to replace Antonio Contreras in front of the team, which he has already removed from the descent. Pier spent 17 years in Spain passing through Tenerife, Betis, Sporting or Zaragoza. He is the veteran of the bench. The great revelation has been Gerardo García. In front of the Logroño, where he finished his career as a footballer, has La Riojans rubbing shoulders with best in category. He was 25 years after leaving the Real Madrid youth academy and playing in Vilarreal, Malaga or Real Sociedad.Dani González He became Atlético’s third coach, the team with which he debuted in Primera. He did not have a long career in the elite, but he went through Mallorca, Tenerife or Algeciras. The last to arrive has been Jordi Ferrón, after training the Seagull in Second. He Lightning ex, Albacete or Zaragoza, with which he won a Cup, he has a very difficult time save an Espanyol who has not yet won. EI Women’s Football every day has more followers and there are not a few former professional footballers who now see in the feminine an opportunity to do something big.

In First Iberdrola There are four former soccer players who reached the elite and now run women’s teams: Pier, Gerardo, Dani González and Jordi Ferrón.last_img read more

first_imgPogba has not played a game since Boxing Day and has only played a total of eight this season. In recent days, the French footballer has been involved in a controversy with Graeme Souness, a former Liverpool player, whom he said he did not know. Souness replied: “Put your titles on a table, I have a great table.” For years he has been one of the biggest critics of French: “Maybe one day he will be the footballer we hope for, but time passes and I’m still not convinced. “ Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United footballer, has come to the defense of his teammate Paul Pogba. “In soocer, people always forget if you play well when you have a mistake. You can do well for 34 games, which if you then have a bad game they will always remember. Paul is coming from a bad time. When playing, the team was not in a good situation. Expectation is always high with him because he is a top footballer and Manchester United paid a lot of money for it. It is normal. Everyone expects from Paul what they expect from Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi. Everyone expects this from Paul in Manchester because he has qualities for it. This is also confidence for him and we have a lot. “last_img read more

first_imgHave you always played as a midfielder?At first, he played as a second striker or playmaker. But we soon made him a midfielder, which I think is the position in which Dani has always performed best. He started to change because he was having trouble doing that defensive work and seemed to be doing it at a slower pace. Ángel López, the former Contra coach in Romania and many other places, also helped him a lot. He also worked with Míchel. We had him as a physical trainer one day a week and that served Parejo a lot when he made the leap to Madrid.He was talking about his rhythm. There are people who have confused that with apathy …Honestly, if there is anyone who thinks that, it is that they have not had much knowledge of the game. Each one has its characteristics. Parejo always stood out for making his team play and for that cold blood. That has taken him to the highest level.Even, the second starting from the right in the bottom row, with the Coslada fry. Go live in Coslada …You can not even imagine. It was a constant pilgrimage of scouts and reps every time we played. That was atypical and I have never seen it again. That follow-up they did was not normal. Word of what Parejo was doing spread and many people came to see us. I remember there were scouts who called me at home the night before a game to see if I was going to put him in eleven or not to come the next day to see him.Why Madrid?He bet heavily on him. He went ahead of everyone. He spoke to his father formally and Dani opted for Madrid. It was not easy because I have a very good relationship with his father and he had a lot of representative cards, from all possible agencies. I insist, I have not seen a boom like that with Parejo. Did he have a goal as a child?Yes. He was always good at fouls and the stopped ball, in addition to shooting from outside the area. Almost all the balls that fell in the vicinity of the area ended in a goal.Did he rehearse a lot?He was sick with soccer. He was pissed off after training if you didn’t stay rehearsing penalties and fouls. We had to call his attention to go to the locker room because he always stayed with the doorman.Did you already have personality?A lot, like now. I have always said that he was the defender of lost causes. He had a very strong personality and was very aware of his peers. That leadership has led him to the elite.What exhibition do you remember?We beat Atlético, who was coached by Sabas. He made an incredible match. He dominated the game as he wanted and Atleti was unable to take the ball from him.After leaving Coslada, did you track him down?Yes. Madrid did well. In addition, the support given by Di Stéfano was definitive. He said he was the greatest talent La Fábrica had given in recent years. That put him even more in the window.Even, seated and the third from the left, with the Coslada cadet. From what Parejo says, not much has changed in terms of football …No. It has the same characteristics as then. The last time I saw him at Mestalla, he caught my attention. It was against Atlético last season. Marcelino was the coach and I saw him drop to the ground twice to steal a ball and he seemed to me a more sacrificed player. But that change came in handy and Marcelino brought out the best. I thought I had lost some conditions to win in others, but the talent was still there. Then, I saw that trot so peculiar that it has always had.At first it cost …It is like Curro Romero. There are people who find it difficult to assimilate their football.In Valencia its best version has been seen …It takes many years to the highest level. I’m glad because Valencia has always been my second team. My mother was Valencian and now, with Dani there, I have a special affection for that club.Are you still in contact with Parejo?Yes. He is a charming boy. I have his shirts. I have gone to see him several times in Valencia and whenever we have needed his help he has been there. In fact, we recently asked him for a video for the kids and he showed a lot of predisposition. I suppose that Dani will also be grateful because in his day we bet on him being a modest club. Where do we start?Well, I will tell him that I trained Dani for two years and he always made a difference, in fry and cadet. At Coslada, we bet on it and we upgraded it. He always played with people older than him and it never showed. It caught everyone’s attention. He had a tremendous following. Sevilla, Liverpool, Atlético, Madrid came to see him … Dani was a confessed Atlético.last_img read more

Powell eager for javelin attention

February 10, 2020 | lpjxbyhj | No Comments

first_imgJamaica’s reigning men’s national javelin record holder Orrin Powell wants the country to take notice of his talent as he seeks to become one of few Caribbean men to represent their country successfully in the event.The 24-year-old final-year student at the G.C. Foster College of Physical Education and Sport improved the national record to 75m earlier this season.Powell has been working with coach Marlon Gayle, who is also a lecturer at the Spanish Town-based institution since 2012.Gayle told The Gleaner that his charge wants eight metres to make the Olympic-qualifying mark, and he is confident Powell will be able to make the standard.The athlete, however, feels that he has a lot more to learn on a technical level and hopes to use each stage as a building block to throw even further.”Javelin is not really a Jamaican sport and something they prepare the youngsters for from a tender age, but since 2009, I started throwing.”I didn’t compete at Champs. I used to throw shot put, discus, and so on, and do long jump, ’cause I was well-rounded, but I wasn’t a name at Champs,” Powell told The Gleaner.”I actually started throwing Javelin at G.C. Foster College in 2012, and I have made some significant improvements. In one year, I moved from 51m to 70.3m,” he said.HARD WORK, DEDICATIONPowell said with hard work and dedication he moved from 70 to 75 metres, adding: “I am hoping to be the second Caribbean athlete to throw over 80 metres like Keshorn Walcott (Trinidad and Tobago).”Walcott is the London 2012 Olympic gold medallist in the event.According to Powell, there has been next to little feedback since breaking the national record.”No one has approached me in terms of making certain steps forward or to say that’s good,” he reasoned.The athlete, while keeping an eye on the qualifying standard for the Olympic Games in Brazil this Summer, says his main focus is ensuring that he will be readyin time for next year’s World Championships in London.last_img read more
